Rover Gold - Gold Detector for Prospectors

The Rover Gold is a gold, silver and mineral detector especially built for locating gold, silver and other mineral rich ore. This detector is unique, for it is primarily designed for the professional prospector for use within mines and mining environments.

After many years of testing in various mines, gold rich fields in places like Sudan, Tanzania, Malaysia, Mexico, USA, Australia and many other countries, the embedded sensor technology from OKM has made it possible to easily detect the gold ore.

Some parts of the 'Rover Gold' scope of delivery.

New built in functionality like the Mineral Scan has simplified the operation for the professional as well as the novice. With the Rover Gold the following can be detected:

  • Gold Ore (including Tellurium, Calaverite, Sylvanite, Nagyagite)
  • Placer deposits in streams
  • Gold in quartz (Hard Rock)
  • Alluvial

Besides being able to locate naturally occurring gold and mineral ore, the Rover Gold is also for the treasure hunter to locate buried treasures. The Rover Gold 3D scanner has the same performance as the Rover C II and the Rover C with the Super Sensor. The detector is not limited to only gold, it can locate and identify a multitude of sub-surface objects, including:

  • Treasure caches and chests
  • Buried gold and silver jewelry
  • Historical artifacts including bronze and copper
  • Stash of coins
  • Ancient grave sites
  • Caves and Tunnels

Included with the Rover Gold is the Super Sensor which can discriminate between ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Non-ferrous metals include gold, silver, bronze, and copper, while ferrous metals include iron, nickel and cobalt.

Additionally with the Rover Gold you will receive a fully programmed Netbook computer with the Visualizer 3D software already configured. Allowing you to focus on the treasure or gold hunt and the location of items of great value.

The Visualizer 3D software can display the measurement values in a three-dimensional image that can be analyzed in detail to locate the buried objects. In the analysis for buried objects, the software can estimate the size and depth of the targets.

Other important implements with the Rover Gold include:

  • Simplified operating modes (Mineral Scan, Ground Scan and Pin Pointer)
  • Back-lit display for easy operation in mines and in the evening
  • LED lights for working at night or in dark places
  • Simplified software specific for the Rover Gold Mineral Scan
  • Ergonomic design, lightweight and agile allowing for longer searches
  • External Power Pack to work an entire day and quick charger
  • Unit enclosure in Desert Sand color to avoid overheating while working in the sun
  • Impact and water resistant Peli transportation case to protect your unit
  • Lightweight transport tube for Super Sensor

We have made the packaging of the unit as compact as possible allowing for the easy transportation into the field. The impact and water resistant Peli case as well as the lightweight transport tube make getting the equipment into the field easier and faster.
