Anyone hear of a Patent Minelab just put in on Magnetic Field?

It is a patent concerning magnetic field?
And one of the dealers I've purchased from said Minelab is coming out with a new detector in 2017 to 2018?
I wonder if it will be in regards to the new patent and be better than anything we've seen so far from Minelab?

I searched this topic and found that they will bring out a new machine at the Sept 2017 Go Minelabing day in the U.K.

Go to the minelab site and hit the Go Minelabing tab to read about the details.

Are you going to the event they are going to unveil the new detector?

I would love to visit England but probably not.

The Explorer II has a selection for Iron Coins, that always made me wonder if I should turn this on or not.

Now with transmitting a magnetic field I have more questions and just have to wait and see.

It will be the long awaited X.Terra replacement . I sold my Terra 705 last week not because of the possible replacement but because here in the UK its becoming more obvious every year that the cashless society is coming . I have noticed every year my finds rate dropping and this year it has taken a massive dip .
The future for detecting beaches at the least is between low and high or lower than the low tide mark. It reflects the machines i have .
No need for any more upgrades for me . Or for at least a few years .

I reason i think its the Terra replacement is the fact its 12 years old now and even if its a good machine it is dated .
Also look at the design of the new Gold Monster 1000 , it would be a waste not to use the design for a new medium level machine .
It wont be a top ender or it will take sales from the CTX and that wont be good business sense , though bringing out the CTX and Go Find lacked that anyway in the face of the success of the lightweight Deus and the Garrett Ace type which still sells like hot cakes .



Uses = Minelab E.Trac , Minelab Explorer 11 (might sell) , Minelab Explorer XS , Minelab Equinox 800 x 2 (ordered) , Garrett Probes , Gray Ghost/ Nugget Busters

I've sometimes wondered

I've sometimes wondered about archeology in the future. So many detectorists taking all the coins out of the parks and beaches for so many years.
Suppose a global catastrophe occurs and wipes out a majority of mankind in a few years from now. Then suppose 500 or so years from now, archeologists dig down to the layer of dirt in our parks for our era and they find no coins. What will they think?
Will they think we traded sea shells or some form of barter?

As time goes by more and more lands that "we the people " should be privy to , are taken away from us .......I can remember fishing the reservoirs in my area ...They are all now fenced in ....State Parks and State lands are off limit's to detectorists ..... There are less and less places that we are able to hunt because or Govt. restrictions.... We pay for the upkeep of said lands but are unable to use them ....... I don't think that archeologists will have any problem finding areas that they can explore in the future , unless THAT right will be taken by that time ....

60 Minutes did an investigative report on archeologists years ago...many had large private collections, when asked where they accumulated this stuff they got angry. 60 Minutes found many of the historical items the archeologists were entrusted to protect and preserve were rotting in museum basements.

Its frequently archeologists who lobby to ban detecting on public lands, they would rather the finds rot in the ground than someone other than an archeologist dig them up.

I believe it Charles. The archeologists in the U.S. are a bunch of self-aggrandizing vultures.

I thought all Metal Detectors worked on the principle of the coil creating an electromagnetic field! I till. Is this some sort of re- inventing the wheel or something.

They do, from the pics someone posted somewhere it looked as though they were producing an image of the target in the ground, on the screen which would be ground breaking.

Doctorcoinz...

Yes, metal detectors use electromagnetic fields; the transmitted electromagnetic energy induces an electrical current in a conductive metal, and then the machine "listens" -- it "reads" the current induced in the target. It then performs "ID" and "discrimination" based on the characteristics of the received electromagnetic energy induced in the target by the detector coil transmission. However, of all the metals we detectorists generally find "valuable," the interesting thing is that none, of course, are magnetic (excluding some relic-type items that are made of iron). I have long thought that IF a detector could be developed that could utilize the fact that iron is MAGNETIC (in addition to being conductive), and then, use the iron's "magnetism" as part of the machine's discrimination circuit somehow, you might be able to effectively ELIMINATE iron targets (discriminate them out) with great accuracy. This in my mind would be a HUGE breakthrough for coin/jewelry hunters -- a POSITIVE way to discriminate nails and other iron targets. It could conceivably be game-changing, as iron "falses" that can at times sound like coins, could conceivably be eliminated/discriminated entirely. Not sure if this is what Minelab is working on, but if anyone can pull that off, it would be huge, in my opinion.
