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!
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.
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.
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.
