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!

Gold panning is the process of extracting gold from placer deposits. For gold seekers, prospectors and miners this technique is one of the cheapest and simplest methods to get the gold out of the ground. The goal of this panning process is to separate the gold from the sand and gravel mixture of the river bed material. This technique was also used in several of the big gold rushes in North America (e.g. Klondike).


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.


Alexander the Great created a powerful world empire and went down in history as one of the most important commanders

In 2014 the team of OKM Emirates FZE (UAE) and its local business partners from GDI - Geological Detection and Imaging (Lebanon) tested the recently announced cavity and water detector GeoSeeker. Supported by an former adviser of the geological department in Lebanon several practical tests were performed in the mountain area of Beirut. In heavy mineralized rocky soil the team was able to detect underground water deposits in a depth of 70 - 90 meters.
