Whilst chasing elk I have found and GPS'd many old tailings piles and cabins. Thought I would take the ebike and put together an adventure. I have never used a metal detector so looking for some suggestions. I am leaning toward a Garrett ATX.
Is this light enough? What size coil package? Any other suggestions for metal detector? I like to keep it simple if possible. I think most of my shooting will be in loose tailings.
Thinking I might do some panning too. Might have to bring in a small plastic basin (water is kind of close), backpacker's sluice box, shovel. etc. Are there any framed packs that work well for this thing?
