Meteorite hunting with metal detectors is a very interesting niche. You have to do your research of where to look and gain an understanding of the typical composition of many meteorites ( which you will be searching for) and how it relates to the type of equipment you need or have on hand to successfully complete this type of hunt. Some metal detectors do very well responding to small meteorite fragments under the coil, others do not.

What are meteorites worth? Well according to Geoffrey Notkin, "METEORITEWRITINGS," a prime specimen will easily fetch $50/gram while rare examples of lunar and Martian meteorites may sell for $1,000/gram or more — almost forty times the current price of gold!

One of the best metal detectors for finding meteorites is a PI (pulse induction) detector, like the Garrett ATX or Garrett Sea Hunter. I have played around with some other metal detectors. So far, the ACE 250 will only pick up a small fragment with the sniper coil up to about 1/2", barely a whisper on the stock coil. The Scorpion will hit it with the larger stock coil at about 2 " with the sensitivity cranked right up in all metal mode and also the audio cranked up. The Garrett ATX will pick up a small fragment easily to about 4".






Below are the results of the new AT MAX and how it responded to two different meteorites, found in different parts of the world......one being China, the other Argentina.



So....to enter this contest, please enter on the SUBJECT LINE ONLY so as I don't have to open each entry. One entry per person. Open to ALL. You must have been a member of Findmall for at least 3 weeks as of today to qualify. The name will be drawn on Wednesday, August 30, 2017 after 6: 00 PM Mountain Standard time. I will Notify and announce the winner.

So, to win both meteorites, (one prize = both meteorites) answer the following question:

If/When Garrett Metal Detectors come out with a new metal detector, what should it be called?

Fear is paralyzing and courage is liberating. No matter what is put in front of you, there is always a way to make it work.
Dreams are just dreams, goals are dreams with deadlines. The desire to succeed comes from within. Stay focused on your goals, and if people say that you can’t do something, get them out of your life and move on.

Would love to have a meteorite!N/T
