Falcon metal detectors have been available for over 12 years. The Falcon MD8 was first produced in Montrose,
CO for the specific purpose of finding ultra fine gold and gold bearing material.
Currently produced in Mesa, AZ, the most popular Falcon model, the MD20, has become an industry standard for electronic
probes of all kinds. Its high frequency of 300 kHz and unique electronic design have given it excellent ability to find
super fine gold particles that other detectors and probes cannot find. The Falcon can find particles of gold
barely visible with the human eye.
The Falcon's superior ability to detect gold, silver, copper, platinum and other valuable metals in rock formations
provide the prospector with a tool unavailable until now. Historically, tailings piles were created
by miners selecting good ore from "worthless rocks" by sight alone. Millions of dollars of valuable ore
were discarded because the miner couldn't see the metal!! Those metals are still lying in those tailings piles
waiting for someone with the electronic sight of a Falcon.
Falcon Metal Detectors is now announcing the newest member of the family, the MD20. With improved sensitivity
and more power, the MD20 series of Falcons will give the modern prospector the ability to find gold in places never before
detectable. Small enough to fit in you pocket and rugged enough to be used in the field, the MD20 will be a necessary
tool for every serious prospector.
While designed with the gold prospector in mind, the Falcon has found many other metal detecting uses, such as:
- Hobby - Pinpointing coins and jewelry without touching them
- Medical - Locating metal fragments in the body
- Construction - Locating covered up nail heads
- Food Service - Scanning for metal fragments
- Wood Working - Finding metals before damaging blades
- Many others where small metal pieces need to be detected.
