Can Metal Detection Be Cost-Effective?
That's a good question. By the way: a different approach to this activity about which it is worth stopping to think together and share information. Personally, I know all kinds of situations (always excluding those people who only raid for pleasure or amusement) in relation to what we might call benefits or profits from metal searching and detection.
In general, this activity is generically called "treasure detection" and this predisposes us to imagine ourselves making "that" finding that will change our lives forever. But there is everything: I know some people who only dedicate themselves to this as a complement or activity of their vacations in beaches, forests and country stays, with the only purpose of having fun in good company and (here comes the benefits...) try to finance all or part of that rest away from home.
On the other hand, there are those who, without defining themselves as professionals, invest in good devices metal detectors with purposes that go beyond the adventure, not only to retaliate that investment but also to obtain net profits. This profile of search engines still defines themselves as amateurs, because they do not live from this activity, but focus it with a clear purpose of making profits.
Finally, there are those who are professionally engaged in "treasure hunting". They love to define themselves as "hunters" and for this, they require very good devices to facilitate their searches and -above all- increase opportunities for good findings. Perhaps the profile of this group is the one that clearly answers the question of the title: yes, you can earn money, especially when you go in search of something specific or concentrate on a type of metal, for example, gold.
The good news is that you yourself, no matter what category you're in, can access that equipment without problems since it's available in the market. Putting it in your hands only requires making the decision and... of course choosing well!
In that case, based on my experience I can recommend one device that will give you many guarantees in increasing opportunities for findings: the AKA Sorex Pro is one of the devices most recommendable since it does not require a high investment and is specially designed for gold detection.
Its design allows when operating at a frequency of 1 to 30 kHz, uA unique algorithm for the identification of flat metal objects and technology for immediate visualization of objects. Although it weighs only 1.15 kg, it has a robust design and is capable of working in multiple terrain conditions, and with several algorithms at once.
Youtarget're making a profit? I invite you to seriously consider this acquisition in the certainty that you will not regret it.
