Deep Seeking Metal Detectors

How Deep Will Deep Seeking Metal Detectors Read Targets?

One question I get asked all the time is, “How deep in the ground can a particular metal detector find targets?” This is a tough question because some detectors are more accurate at 0”- 6” inches while others can read targets much deeper. The main reason I wanted to make this article is so anyone who is curious, can see which metal detectors on the market were designed to find deeper targets. Some of these detectors can read targets even deeper than suggested when you purchase a DD search coil. I will list a few examples in the listings below.

Please keep in mind that these are not cheap metal detectors. Most of these detectors are in the advanced detector category and the price will be much greater than your average detector. There is something else to keep in mind, the target itself. The size of the target can, and likely will make a big difference in how deep the detector will find targets. Soils, wet sand, and many other factors can also alter the depth reading. Gold, silver, iron… all these things play a big role in the metal detectors’ ability to read deeper or shallower in the ground.


What Brands Make Deep Seeking Metal Detectors?

There are a few brands that have deep seeking capabilities and I would like to go over them quickly.

Minelab is one of the metal detector leaders of the market. They make the beginner to advanced detectors, and a couple of their detectors can be considered “deep seeking detectors.”

Nokta is newer to the United States but has already made a great name for themselves in other parts of the world. They have a category for deep seeking detectors and several of them have some really great features.

Fisher is the oldest metal detector manufacturer in the United States. They have a metal detector that will seek out treasures deep in the ground.

Garrett is an all-time favorite brand and they also have a detector that I would consider as their deep seeking treasure finder.

I fully believe that all I can do is give you the information and you can decide what is best for you according to the price tag and options.

  1. Very good article. Now please suggest which one is best for deep seeking treasures and coins hunting?
    Also can I get a used one so that I pay less?

    • I would say the Minelab CTX 3030, the Garrett 2500+ Eagle Eye Package, the Nokta Invenio Pro, or the Fisher Gemini 3. It just depends on what your budget is. The rule-of-thumb is, the more expensive, the best the metal detector will perform! Thanks for replying and let us know if you have any questions.

  2. I have the Nokta Makro Jeotech led system metal detector and now I want to purchase the Jeotech T44 search coil. Do you have one?

  3. I need to locate cast iron sewer lines in my back yard. They are 10 feet under ground. Would any of these metal detectors be up to task?
