OKM's metal detecting and treasure hunting Blog

In our metal detecting and treasure hunting blog we are going to publish interesting stories about treasure hunters, metal detectorists, prospectors and their adventures. You will also read about OKM background stories and will learn more about the human history regarding the topic of treasure hunting and metal detection.

If you wrote an interesting article by yourself or took part on a treasure hunting adventure and want it to be published here, don't hesitate to contact us!

On a sunny day some colleagues from OKM grabbed a Black Hawk pulse induction metal detector and started treasure hunting in a nearby wooden area with some old houses. During our search we found several buried items and artifacts. Mostly some old coins were detected but also some other objects the people lost over the past years. This was also a good opportunity for OKM to get new ideas for further improving the Black Hawk metal detector. This day we cleared the area close to the earth's surface but we will come back with our 3d ground scanners eXp 4500 and eXp 6000 to find the deep hidden treasures too.


Today 3 people from our Turkish distributor DEPAR took part on an intensive training course to learn advanced operating techniques about our 3d ground scanners, metal detectors and ground penetrating radars. Furthermore they were taught how to interpret 3d scan images. Thus they are able to support Turkish customers with manufacturers knowledge.

The GeoSeeker utilizes a geoelectrical measurement procedure based on Schlumberger to read the soil resistivity. Based on that ground resistance the detector is capable to locate underground water deposits, water-bearing gravel and groundwater level as well as cavities like caves, tunnels, chambers and the like. Thus the geophysical detector can be deployed as water finder or cavity detector at the same time.


In 2013 a small team of OKM members traveled to Tanzania in Africa to demonstrate the gold prospecting capabilities of the Black Hawk metal detector and the 3d ground scanner Rover C II. After a gold mining conference in Mwanza, the gold prospectors themselves used the opportunity to practically test the gold detectors on location. Thus gold nuggets were detected with ease and proof was given that our OKM metal detectors Black Hawk and Rover C II can detect gold deposits with ease effectively.
