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!
This year's summer event of the Bundesforum Mittelstand e.V. was hosted by OKM Metal Detectors. At OKM headquarters, a golden pyramid within a business park in Altenburg, the manufacturer of geophysical instruments builds premium-quality metal detectors, ground scanners and ground penetrating radars (GPR). All invited guests used the opportunity to take part on a guided company tour, an exciting presentation as well as a little treasure hunt.
On 13th June 2017 our General Manager Andreas Krauss joined the invitation of the Bundesforum Mittelstand and took part to the 5th Foreign Trade Day in Cottbus. In addition to specialist lectures on the subject of cross-border cooperation, we took this opportunity to present our water detector GeoSeeker to the participants, which is used to locate underground water deposits.
Well, that depends on what you want to find in the ground. One of the first questions we will ask you is "What are you looking for?" Based on the answer to this question, we from OKM can recommend an appropriate metal detector, 3D ground scanner, gold detector or ground radar. This article provides a first overview of our detecting devices and geophysical detectors.
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.
