The Treasure Hunter

When a new accessory for one of my favourite waterproof metal detectors comes out, I always want to know how and where it will make a difference at the beach. I have four different size search coils for my CTX 3030, so where does the waterproof 14×9” CTX help me as a beach and water hunter?

Gold Story

I had travelled to Windeyer NSW to go on a gold detecting tour run by NSW Gold Tours on a private property that had Spicer’s Creek and Married Man’s Creek running through them.
