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.

Gold Nuggets found with the Garrett ATX.


Gold nuggets and .925 silver recovered with the Garrett ATX in the Golden Triangle, Victoria, Australia. The video includes a ‘start to finish’ live dig on a lovely 2.3 gram solid gold nugget (recovered at a depth of 20cm/8 inches – plus the leaf litter & deadfall), a Sterling Silver 1891 Victoria Threepence, and a second nugget weighing in at 1.0 gram. Thanks for watching and subscribing.

ATX Gold Nugget.

ATX Gold – Our mate FNQ Chris’s first nugget, 0.6gm of beautiful Palmer River Gold. The nugget was detected in very hot ground at 10-15cm (4-6″) with the stock ATX DD coil in an area that had been well visited by detectorists over the years.

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

Garrett ATX in Australia: Setup and Controls.

This is a brief run through on the new Garrett ATX Extreme Pulse Induction metal detector. In this video we look at unpacking and deployment, coil changing, battery changing and general operation of the controls. The ATX was extensively tested in Australia in the world’s most challenging conditions for a metal detector – from the volcanic soil of North Queensland to the ironstones of the Western Australian goldfields. In these conditions the ATX performed smoothly and found small gold in areas that had previously been ‘flogged out’ by other PI detectors. We hope you enjoy this brief introduction to the ATX  – we will be heading out to the goldfields in the coming weeks to bring you more videos of the ATX. Thanks for watching – Colleen and Warren.
