Looking for a small coil for sensitivity to those tiny targets? This is it!
The small 10 x 5" (250 x 125mm) Goldhunting "Joey" coils are most commonly used for hunting heavy over growth and just searching for the finer gold on the patch. With excellent sensitivity and good depth capabilities it is an excellent choice for any detector operator. Their size gives a relatively small view of the ground and it is because of this that they are most suited to the smaller targets.
Smaller coil = increased sensitivity to smaller targets. The eliptical design also gives somewhat greater seperation of targets laterally.
They are also excellent for maneuverability as they are very light weight and can either be used as a detecting coil or locating coil.
MONO Operation hints & tips:
The small mono has a depth benefit over most mono coils due to its size. This comes in the way of heightened sensitivity and less susceptibility to mineralisation. Again, the small field being produced reduces the ground noise to some degree however the coil is still a mono coil and this can cause some mineralised conditions to create ground balance issues. Having said that, the target response of this coil is sharp and clear so most likely the targets will be easily heard if within the range of the coils magnetic field.
Being a mono it has the windings around the perimeter of the coil so pinpointing can be done by either using the tip of the coil or tilting the coil to vertical and using the outer edge. You will notice that the outer edge is sensitive all around the coil. When swinging this coil you will need to overlap your swings by approximately half the coil length to be thorough and having a slow swing speed will ensure you hear the very tiny targets.
Also, being a mono coil means the iron reject feature is not operational.
