Does anyone have any knowledge on the scanning/imaging detectors?

I’m unable to find any details or heard of anyone using them. some have a long tube, others have two probes or antennas on them.

Not able to show a link, but I googled German made detectors

A proper Ground Scanning Radar is usually used for relic &/or archeological hunting, and they're usually very expensive.
As for the "deep underground 10km x 500m" type gold scanners ... Just search for fake scams etc on this forum
May i suggest you dont get sucked in awful

There are some that specifically state for gold, what they claim they can do is unbelievable.

No, I don’t have any thoughts of buying one, just curious.

Goldfeels, have a read of this thread, & when you get to post #51 have a good laugh at "bio-energy' powered gold detecting ability from OKM ... German manufacturers
I had an online discussion with them ... they're dead-set serious

Thanks for the info ded driver.

I can’t imagine the local laws would allow them To advertise or sell them in Germany.

If there claims and explanations weren’t so outrageous, they would be able to con a few more people.

The thing some people need to remember when contemplating purchasing these gimmicks, if they were so good and did what they claimed, then forums like this would have threads showing how good they are (like we do with machines and methods that actually work and are proven), many people would own them and there would be heaps of youtube video's showing people finding gold with them.

There is good reason for the lack of info on them, lack of video's showing them finding gold and lack of people owning them wink

Yes heaps of gimmicks out there. Have you seen the one with all the aerials stuck on it ? Recently I managed to make something that makes gold easier to see on the ground but I only managed to make it work for a small time in a controlled enviroment and have not been able to do it again cry If I actually had something revolutionary I would be applying for some patents then making a video of it working in real world conditions to prove it to everyone. All I have is this solitary pic, it doesn't prove much but then I am not claiming much either or trying to sell anything so no harm done.1595417025_1594735893_screenshot_20200714_233107-1.jpg if you have been looking at this sort of thing do your self a favour and just have a good laugh about it. 1595417397_20200722_205933.jpg I see four mobile phone antennas a pipe and perhaps a kids bicycle handle bar grip lol

But we all know if it sounds too good to be true we have loads of people ready to hand over cash.
There was one guy around here who was demonstrating these to people. And even had a few videos as supporting evidence..

He would never allow anyone to actually test with hidden gold.

But people still purchased.

Cheers HH

Have you seen some of there claims? If it was that easy gold wouldn't be worth much.

people should be asking, 'if they're so good, why is there any gold left'?

Yep! I once was talking to the seller of one of these and I asked if it is so good, why don't you just go find your own gold with it, his response was that expeditions are expensive!!! LOL
Really? Tank of fuel, dial in the nearest biggest shallow nugget and the rest is like perpetual motion.

There are some GPR machines that are ok, but they are mainly only good for searching for relics in benign soil and the reason they work is because relics are a distinct shape unlike nuggets which look like every other rock as far as a GPR is concerned.
Also, in our goldfield grounds, the mineralisation limits the depth a GPR will go.

I think i know of the person you mention, he lives in Ballarat, is a PMAV member and also in the seekers club. Has a U-Tube channel and is mates with Famo59.
Having a fair bit of high level industrial electronics experience myself i doubt the little yellow box on a spinning handle would find you gold or buried treasure.

Stay clear of the SCAM. idea
