Quick answers to many common questions we get asked from around the world.
This page is designed to provide quick answers to many common questions we get asked from around the world. We hope that it will help you in your prospecting endeavors and lead to quicker results when you have any issues. We intend this to cover a broad range of prospecting queries and not only concentrate on the Coiltek product.
From time to time we will be updating this page with more questions as they arise and encourage you to contact us with your suggestions which could help others with their detecting experience.
At Coiltek Manufacturing (CTM) we provide a full 2 year warranty on all of our manufactured coils and accessories (some products may vary). This warranty starts from the date of purchase by the customer. This is applicable worldwide. This warranty covers any manufacturing errors like cracks in plastics or performance issues like no response which are from manufacturing faults – usually these are noticeable within the first few hours of use. The warranty does not cover normal use or misuse of the product. For a coil/product to continue to perform well it must be treated with care and not be used in a way that will jar or incur any sudden impact. This sudden impact may result in developing a noisy product. CTM, at its sole discretion, will determine the nature of the returned item and decide whether it is a warranty issue. Each individual case will be reviewed on its own merits and the more information you can provide the easier it will be for us to make a quick decision.
Yes, all Coiltek coils are supplied with a skid plate already attached to the coil. We also supply a wingnut and bolt with each coil for your convenience.
Smaller coils are great for the little nuggets, less than half a gram, which are reasonably close to the surface, within 100mm. They are great for areas that have been surfaced down to bedrock. Also good for species that don’t have a lot of gold in them, so ideal for detecting exposed reefs. Their physical size makes them ideal for working heavily vegetated areas and creeks with large rocks. Larger coils can detect targets deeper, but only when the targets are larger. They are not as sensitive to the tiny nuggets. They cover a lot more ground for each swing but can be difficult in areas where there is a lot of vegetation. Both small and large coils can pick up a range of target sizes however the targets need to be within the range of the magnetic field of the coil for it to respond. For small coils the field is smaller than the larger coils, but with smaller coils you have a tighter field so sensitivity is improved. Larger coils fields are broader and less sensitive but can punch deeper in to the ground than the small coils.

Frequently asked questions about the NOX series.
The 15″ NOX coil is our deepest searching coil for the Equinox detectors. If you have more open ground, or searching on the beach, this coil will be an excellent option to use as it will cover ground quickly and also punch deep to search out those larger deeper targets.
Yes, all of the NOX coils made by Coiltek are fully submersible to 3 meters.
No, the NOX coils are all plug and play and will work with our preferred settings for any other coil. The only thing you may need to do is adjust sensitivity or perform a noise cancel.
All three NOX coils will be able to find gold but considering most gold is quite small the 10×5″ NOX coil will be the best suited for this type of detecting. It also has the smallest footprint of the three NOX coils which means it may not be as affected by ground mineralisation so can run smoother in the goldfields. When hunting for gold remember to swing slowly and list for any subtle changes in threshold which are repeatable as this means a target – hopefully a golden one!
