"State of the Art" Search
Head for the Whites GOLDMASTER and GOLDMASTER GMT
12" HOT SHOT
Search Head was designed
for locating very deeply buried "low conductivity"
metals such as Gold and is handcrafted using the finest
materials and workmanship available.
It is constructed using a "concentric
coil" technology which has the ability to "partially
reject" mineralized ground signals while still maintaining
excellent detection depth. Typical "air test" sensitivity
for the Whites "GMT" Goldmaster Detector, using the
Hot Shot Search Head, is in excess of 16" for a nickel.
Detection depth will be greater on larger targets
than the standard elliptical coil, as this is generally
true for all larger coils.
The Hot Shot Search Head coil
design geometry was maximized for high sensitivity
and extremely light weight for a coil of this size
(weighing only one ounce more than the standard Whites
5X10 inch elliptical coil).
The following are a few "hints
and tricks" in using the Hot Shot Search Head as the
performance characteristics are slightly different
from that of the standard 5X10 inch elliptical search
head, which utilizes a "Double D" coil geometry, that
is supplied with the Whites GMT Goldmaster Detectors.
It is not recommended or necessary
to "scrub" the ground while searching as slight
variations in ground strength and character may
produce very slight "false signals" in heavily mineralized
Maximum ground cancellation
occurs when the Hot Shot Search Head is held slightly
above the ground (approximately 1/4 inch) while
hunting. Detection depth for deep targets actually
increases due to less "ground signals" being passed
to the detector and the majority of very small "surface
trash" will be less bothersome.
The standard elliptical coil,
a fine coil for its intended use, can be scrubbed
against the ground during hunting as it is a very
rigid (and somewhat heavy) design. Although the
Hot Shot was designed to find larger deeply buried
targets it will also detect very small surface targets
as well and, unlike the elliptical coil design,
maximum sensitivity occurs in the exact center of
the coil rather than tapering off towards the ends.
This feature also enhances pinpointing accuracy.
When ground balancing, "pump"
the Hot Shot up and down several times toward the
ground without actually letting the Search Head
come in contact with the ground. This will insure
a more accurate ground balance and greater detection
From all of us at Applied
Creativity, Inc., we hope your detecting experience
using the Hot Shot will be both rewarding and enjoyable.
