If you are in Horsham, Victoria, over the Easter long weekend, we will be at the Gemboree 2015 with Garrett Australia & Cordell Kent from The Mining Exchange Gold Shop, Ballarat. Drop by and say g’day and share a few of your bush adventures and stories with us. We will be happy to demonstrate any of the range of Garrett Metal Detectors. See you there! Warren.
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.
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.
