The Black Hawk metal detector is the perfect choice to find small valuable objects like gold nuggets, rings and coins.

Wars of past centuries have left our forefathers no other choice as to bury their valuables like gold, silver, jewelery and other objects of great value, to hide them from enemies. Several weeks ago a treasure hunter in Turkey found some of those buried artifacts with the OKM pulse induction metal detector Black Hawk. His treasure trove contains several coins and ancient figures which were hidden in 0,5 meters depth.


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.


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.


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.


This video introduces OKM's metal detector and 3d ground scanner Rover C4. This detector is designed for treasure hunters and gold seekers and comes with some very unique features like the LED orbit to visualize buried treasures live during a measurement. It's time to recover all the lost treasures and hidden gold objects!


The Future 2018 is a very special metal detector and 3d ground scanner from OKM's long lasting series of detection technology - the Future Series. It is specially designed for beginners in the field of 3d measurements and offers easy operation as well as advanced scanning features. The Future 2018 metal detector fits in everybody's budget and assists treasure hunters to discover hidden treasures, lost artifacts and buried historical items.


On June 14th, 2006 Dr. Karl-Heinz Walker, an independent, publicly certified and sworn expert of the IHK Karlsruhe (IHK = Chamber of Industry and Commerce), verified the functionality and reliability of our metal detectors and 3d ground scanners. The field tests have been conducted by utilizing the Future 2005 as well as the eXp 4000 to check if OKM's Geophysical Phase Reader (GPR) technology can detect underground objects under several environmental conditions. The field tests involved detecting gold bars, tunnels as well as non-ferrous metals at different depths.


In June 2000 our general manager Mr. Krauß introduced one of his new 3d ground scanners at a treasure hunters meeting in Germany. The Future 2001 (as the metal detector was named) has also been demonstrated in a live field test, that was observed by German television. All interested treasure hunters, gold seekers and archaeologists took the opportunity to get as much information as possible about the new metal detecting device, which is also able to visualize the measure values of the scanned underground in graphical 3d representations.
