Interesting idea?

Post  slimpickens on Mon Aug 21, 2017 11:26 am

Hi all anyone heard about this machine?
It's called a :-
DRS Advanced Resistivity Scanner (ARS), geophysical 3D radar

Thanks to Chris for link  T06

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SuSJwDMf8eo                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  

Any independent info would be appreciated .
Also price in Australia ?
And most importantly: does  it work on our highly mineralised dirt.?

All I see at that link is, "This video is unavailable". Sad

Magnetometer & Gradiometer.
That first link worked ok for me.
Likely works fine in lightly iron mineralised ground.
It is not one of those long range psychic powered pieces of crap.

The Resistivity meter at the second link is a different device which measures the conductivity of the ground and is of little use when hunting for individual nuggets unless it is a really biggun and you sunk the ground spikes almost on top of it.

I have used resistivity meters to test the conductivity of Electricity earth cables around main sub stations to ensure that they had good ground contact.

If, for arguments sake it works fine in lightly iron mineralised and picks up a coke can at 2 metres, can you shorten the distance between the 4 pins you nail into highly mineralised ground to be able to pick up a coke can at 1 mitre?

More like a tool best used in benign ground, for archaeological/geological purposes Slim?  One must keep in mind, that regardless of any claims made &/or cost of equipment, whatever is designed for overseas use, might not work well within our variably changing, highly mineralized ground conditions.

Kon, soon as I saw the long range locator (the pistol grip part of another model) it reminded me what kind of company this is, and all I can say is "Run for your lives"!

Q25  Fair enough Harry & some are still running, but It don't matter what one thinks or believes a metal detecting device can or cannot do, for we can only go by facts.  
Like I said there are some overseas metal detecting devices that can & do work well on/over our soils, but others fail miserably. Like all things, fitness for purpose & do your research, before taking the punt, Is what i say. Shame we're limited, by not having the opportunity to hire & test, before we part with our hard earned, only to find out the device we've purchased, is not suited to ones needs.

Cheers fellas, Kon.  T25

It (the resistivity meter)will not find a coke can. It is designed to test for ground conductivity over a wide area. It could in theory locate silver, copper iron and lead deposits if distributed extensively in the ground.

The device at the first link may be of some use to a prospector or geological survey work. I do not know if it would find dino bones??

The LRLs that we all despise are not the same as the items spoken of here. Magnetometers and resistivity meters actually do something but LRLs are pure unadulterated garbage designed to suck in the gullible.

Sounds like you have had some experience with Resistivity Meters Adrian. Even if it could locate a gold nugget the size/width of a coke can, clearly at 1 meter deep, would not the GPZ 7000 be just as capable of doing so at pretty much similar depths, on the same size/type metal objects, without the use of constantly placing & shifting probes from one section of ground to another?  Now if this machine could pick up and clearly ID an ounce or so, of solid gold at 3 feet deep, in mineralized ground, would raise a few eye brows. Shocked Q35

Having a choice between a 7000 and a magnetometer or resistivity meter for nugget hunting I would choose the 7000. I would use the other instruments to locate large areas of ground where gold and other metalic minerals are likely to be found.

The Gradiometer is very useful for locating magnetic and gravity concentrations caused by high density mineral concentrations. (Mascons)

A simple question.
How many probes would it take in 1 square metre to isolate a coke can precisely........................ if at all?

If at all?!...About 4 probes. But as I said. Resistivity meters are not real flash at finding single nuggs of any size.....Maybe if you banged the pegs down into or near a rich reef like Lassetters, the meter might give ya a clue if the gold is laced throughout the reef.

A Magnetometer could likely ping a goodun but you wouldn't know what you had until ya dug ut up.

I accept that I will not use Resistivity meters and Gradiometers ta find gold nuggets. Very Happy

drs detector

Post  mogy on Wed Aug 23, 2017 4:25 am

Last year ? I queried  the DRS detector on the site , I  eventually got to see one , the "standard usual" detector not the  one  being discussed  here today , it  was well built looked very impressive  , had a lap top to display  , really looked the part but  turned  out to be lacking in most areas a very  expensive barely effective toy , made  somewhere in Turkey but being sold as a German product.
I would treat anything from this  firm with caution.
