Cousins Derek Chuck and Duane Downing are two very happy XP DEUS  users. They have always searched together as a team and like to compare each others signals.

Duane had only owned his DEUS with the 11” coil for two weeks when he called Derek over to compare a signal.

It was hitting 69 – 72 on his wrist mounted headphone module along with a very positive audio sound.

They started to carefully dig in the Lincolnshire soil, Derek told me the hole was over 12” (30cm) deep when a bright Gold object started to appear.

He reached down with his hand and slowly pulled out a large Gold Torc which he said “looked like the day it was dropped!”

I asked Derek what was the first thing he did, he replied “The Gold Dance!”

This wonderful piece of ancient gold is still undergoing investigation with the British Museum and local experts. So far it’s true identity is not fully known.

Recent reports say it is possibly Irish Gold and dates back to over 1000 BC. The finds liaison officer who was on site told the guys to keep searching as they believe it is not a single lost item and more likely to be a part of a bigger offering to the ancient gods.

This Gold Torc located by Derek Chuck with the XP DEUS metal detector is believed to be Irish Gold that dates back to over 1000 BC!

Derek and Duane are still searching for the missing pieces.

All at XP wish them the very best of luck and hopefully they will have something more to report as the UK treasure act progresses.

I’m in love again!

I wanted to tell everyone, at least those who don’t already know, what a great mud and water machine the XP DEUS is.

And, Wow!

Take a look at these photos and go buy yourself a copy of the American Digger magazine, issue vol. 11, issue 5, to check out Dr. Ron Haden’s article, Getting your Feet Wet. (October 2015). In it you’ll see that he and Wayne Pase have been tearing it up in the rivers and swamps of Old Virginia.

And, now comes the next chapter of the saga….

Here are a few, but not all, of their recent finds.

Don’t be skeptical because most of the wood is still on the guns. Mud is a great sealant and oxygen blocker. Wayne’s Enfield Rifle, as shown in front of Sgt. Riker’s shop, was found just yesterday, October 8, 2015.

Go get yourself a DEUS and you’ll fall in love again.
