Metal Detecting the Outback: ‘Malaytown’ Part 4: Garrett AT Pro International.


In this video we make our fourth visit to the site of ‘Malaytown’, which dates from the 1880s. Some great relics and coins come to light once again on a site that has produced many relics in the past – ‘keep going back!’ Thanks for watching and subscribing. Colleen and Warren.

Garrett Pro-Pointer AT.

The new Garrett Pro-Pointer AT is much more sensitive than the original Pro-Pointer. Shown is a 0.15 gram nugget which the new detector easily isolated in ‘maximum’ sensitivity mode. The Pro-Pointer AT has a real ‘sweet spot’ on the shaft approximately 1-2cm from the tip (where the nugget is resting), ideal for sifting through excavated soil in a ‘sweeping’ motion to recover those tiny sub-grammers.

Garrett ATX: 20″ Deepseeker Monoloop Coil.

In this short demonstration video, we check the response of the Garrett ATX with the optional 20″ x15″ Deepseeker Monoloop Coil on larger, deeper targets. For this purpose we bury a 300gm lead ‘nugget’ (we didn’t have an actual 10-ouncer to hand!!) in mineralized Australian soil. This is purely for illustrative purposes and is not meant to be a “will detect target X at depth Y” demo — there are too many variables in the field for tests of this nature to be definitive. The big mono will, of course detect targets of 300gm/10oz at much greater depths, dependent on field conditions and control settings, and operator technique. In addition to the target response segment, we also demonstrate the use of the Garrett sling and do a ‘real time’ coil change.

We hope you enjoy this short demonstration and find it informative. More ATX goldfields videos to follow soon! Happy Prospecting! Warren and Colleen. www.nqexplorers.com www.garrettaustralia.com.au www.garrett.com
