A fellow detectorist sent us a little review and diggers story, where he has been detecting with the Nokta Fors Relic. He shares his impressions of the detector and he also sent us some pictures of his finds. Once again I am convinced that the Nokta Fors Relic is an excellent detector.

The 2018 detecting season has not only begun for the diggers of coins in the fields because war-relic hunters have also started.

A Man Found A Gold Nugget Worth More Than $50,000! (Photos+)

You know this saying – “Better safe than sorry?”. This story is well characterized by such a saying. In Queensland, Australia, one of the diggers, who wished to remain anonymous, was walking with a metal detector.
