Big Valley Metal Detectors is here to make your treasure hunting experience simple and exciting! As one of the top dealers in the west for years, and handling all major brands, I am uniquely qualified to advice you on your metal detector purchase. After all, a good deal is only a good deal if you actually get good use out of what you get. As any of you who spend time outdoors know, the ground is different everywhere. This means detecting conditions can vary greatly from site to site, and a machine that may work well in one part of the country may be a poor choice for a different area.

Treasure hunting can be a fun and rewarding outdoor hobby for the whole family and I am here to help you along the way. There's still a whole lot of good stuff left to find in California! I carry the best metal detectors and gold mining equipment in the country. And remember: your camping or hiking trip into nearby Gold Country can be much more interesting if you take along a good goldpan or one of our great lightweight sluices. Keene

My mission is to provide you with the best customer service, both before and after the sale, and the highest quality products in the business. With the exception of the Minelabs, which are Australian in origin, and the XP Deus, which is French, my metal detectors are all built in the U.S.A., and are manufactured with the highest attention to detail.

Now a GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY has presented itself with the failure of the Oroville Dam's spillway. Much of the gold containing bedrock was exposed after the dirt was washed away by the incredible flow of water out of the reservoir. People are starting to realize this and are taking their gold detectors up to that area. We are seeing a MINI GOLD RUSH.

Nice from Lesche:
Think about it:

The classic Lesche with its teeth on the other side; much more natural for right handed use.

I have been after Lesche for years to make these, and they finally made them.

Favored by detectorists and gardeners!
