A short explanation of the Discrimination feature on the Garrett ATX, and how it will effect detection of low-conductivity targets at depth. Setting any level of discrimination advances the time delay that the detector will read the return pulse from a detected target. The return pulse on small, low conductive targets (such as small gold nuggets) quickly decays and setting any discrimination may result on the loss of detection of these targets. We hope you find this short video informative, and look forward to bringing you goldfields prospecting videos in the coming months. Happy Fossicking! Warren and Colleen.
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
