Metal detecting is one of the easiest, most profitable, and fun ways to find gold and other metallic treasures such as coins, jewelery, and relics. It's so easy to have your metal detector ready to go in its carry bag with extra coils, a digger or scoop, headphones, and spare batteries. Just grab and go! What is the best metal detector? This is probably the #1 question that everyone asks. Unfortunately, there is no "right" answer. The easiest way to find the "best" metal detector for YOU is to evaluate YOUR detecting style, YOUR experience level, what items you hope to find, and the time that you will spend metal detecting. After taking all of these things into consideration, then you will be able to find a metal detector that fits your needs and your budget. You can browse a wide selection of metal detectors, coils, headphones, diggers, scoops, and other accessories from Bounty Hunter, Garrett, Teknetics T2, Tesoro, and Fisher on this site. With the price of gold skyrocketing these days, if you want a special gold detector, you have that choice, too. FREE shipping on any detector priced $350 or more!  Have fun and good luck!

To learn about gold mining of yesteryear, take your family on a tour of the authentic Crystal Gold Mine in Kellogg, Idaho. Dress warmly, don a bright yellow hard hat, grab a flashlight, and follow your tour guide into the underground world of gold mining. For over 100 years, no one knew this mine existed. The original prospector simply disappeared, leaving his mine car, track, tools, and high-grade gold ore behind—sure signs he intended to come back, but strangely never did. During the years that the mine was lost and undisturbed, beautiful turquoise-colored smithsonite crystals formed on the walls. You’ll also see gold and wire silver, too. After the tour, pan for gold outdoors under the tutelage of your mine guide. Even if there’s no flash in your pan, you might find a star garnet—Idaho’s state stone. And what a rare souvenir that would be; these garnets naturally occur in only two places on earth—India and Idaho.
