Deus vs Equinox on small gold

After 17 years with ML Explorers and getting too old to swing Minelab's 5 pound machines its time to upgrade. I purchased a Deus recently and already placed an order for an Equinox I'll own both. The Deus and Equinox will become my primary beach hunting machines, replacing my Excalibur and Explorer SE Pro. I'll be after small gold the Explorer even maxed out can't get a signal on.

Here are the small gold test results for the Deus at 54kHz, I'll be running the same test on the Equinox when it arrives.

I would think the Deus would pick up the smallest nuggets due to it having the highest frequencies. But the speed of the Equinox is supposed to be faster and i suspect depth.
Roll on the release.



Uses = Minelab E.Trac , Minelab Explorer 11 (might sell) , Minelab Explorer XS , Minelab Equinox 800 plus 15x12 inch coil (ordered) plus 1 x 800 maybe? (THAT DEPEND ON WET SALT BEACH CAPABILITY) , Garrett Probes , Gray Ghost/ Nugget Busters

Yes this is my biggest concern. The E-Trac was never good on small odd shaped gold. I just hope that is not the case with the Equinox.

You notice there have been no tests shown on tiny gold yet? :cringe:



The real treasure is in the hunt...

The 40 khts freq will get many targets and it does have prospecting mode.

I wonder if any of the offset frequencies will hit the gold better - which 54kHz program did you run?

You should remember that the faster the recovery the less the depth. I never run my Deus at max recovery but at the slowest that will get the job done. It will be the same for the Nox. It's just physics.



One Man's Trash...........is what I usually find.

XP Deus / CTX 3030

Where are the diamond rings?.............They said there'd be diamond rings !.
