Some of our customer's latest treasure finds demonstrate the versatility of his powerful 3d ground scanner Rover C II. While treasure hunting in Morocco and conducting several measurements, he discovered a significant coin treasure that dates back to the 11th century. The age of the copper coins could be reconstructed because of its inscription "480 Hijri". On another site the treasure hunter was successful in finding several fragments of an old meteorite.


The metal detector Rover C4 is applicable for all treasure hunters and detectorists who are looking for buried metals like gold coins, jewelry and treasure chests as well as voids and cavities like tunnels, caves, graves or chambers.

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 november 2005 some of our customers found a wooden chest filled up with gold bars. Those bullions were buried during the World War II by greek guerillas.
