12x8" Treasureseeker Coil

Available for the Minelab FBS Series machines

NOTE - these coils have been discontinued.  Limited quanties remain.


This coil has been an excellent addition to the range of products we offer. Like the entire Treasureseeker lineup this is a fully water proof, high performance coil. The coil is potted with epoxy resin which holds the improved windings secure and provide its water proof ability. The coil comes with a fitted skid-plate which has been designed so it can be easily removed to clean out trapped dirt or dust or to remove completely and swing without the skid. The coils robustness will ensure that if run without a skid plate it will endure the knocks and bumps during normal swing action. (solid skid plate also available)

(Remember that only the coil is water proof, your detector may not be! Ensure that your cable plug and control box are kept free of moisture at all times!)


Operation hints & tips

The Treasureseeker has been very well received for the hunters who detect on the beach or around streams and creeks. Due to the elliptical shape it has been an excellent coil for pinpointing targets. Swinging with an overlapping sweep pattern is crucial to make sure the ground is covered well. When you have a target then slowly swing up to it from 2 different angles and when you start to hear the target it usually is 1 inch in from the nose of the coil.  The Platypus excels in areas of high trash and targets stand out with its excellent sensitivity, great pinpointing ability and good target separation.

Feel confident - Coiltek has a 2 year warranty on all coils purchased from July 2013. Register your coil vial the coiltek and you will receive a confirmation email with the registration details. This needs to be kept as well as proof of purchase for any warranty claims.
