The Garrett Scorpion Gold Stinger: Superior Prospecting!

Garrett Scorpion Gold Stinger Nugget FindsThere are few types of treasure hunting more lucrative for amateurs and professionals alike than gold prospecting. Successfully hunting for gold nuggets can provide one of the most profitable methods of treasure hunting around, and the Garrett Scorpion Gold Stinger is one of the best metal detectors on the market.

One of the best features of the Scorpion Gold Stinger is its ability to distinguish accurately between conducive gold ore and iron rocks, fool’s gold or non-conducive finds. You’ll even be able to easily eliminate low-grade silver ore.

Because the most profitable gold prospecting occurs in difficult, highly mineralized soil conditions, the Garrett Scorpion Gold Stinger comes packed with its signature 15 kHz Groundhog circuitry. This circuitry is designed to easily and powerfully penetrate heavily mineralized soil and to be ideal for finding small nuggets.

What else does the Scorpion Gold Stinger feature?

Scorpion Gold Stinger Gold HuntThe Scorpion Gold Stinger comes packed with a 5’’ x 10’’ DD Crossfire search coil that’s specifically designed for use in the rugged terrains that are ideal for gold hunting. The coil is shaped to be able to penetrate and detect in spaces where even smaller round search coils are unable to fit. The machine can also sport an optional 3’’x 7’’ search coil (included) for even greater searching versatility.

You’ll have access to full VLF/TR calibration discrimination to help you sample ore and to eliminate those hot rocks that seem to show up too often when gold prospecting. While powerful, this device is also precise, offering dual controls for ground balancing. The Scorpion Gold Stinger can not only be used to detect for gold.  The 10-turn ground-balance control combined with full range discrimination and the 5" x 10" Crossfire DD elliptical searchcoil allows the Scorpion to excel when hunting for coins, relics, and jewelry in any ground condition.
