Gold Nugget Hunter Metal Detector

Take prospecting to a new level with the ultra-high frequency Gold Bug-2.

Like the original Gold Bug, the Gold Bug-2 is designed for finding gold nuggets. It offers extraordinary sensitivity, ultra-high frequency (the highest operating frequency on the market), iron-discrimination, dust and moisture resistance, audio-boost and the ability to operate in extremely mineralized soil with a 3-position mineralization switch. Backed by Fisher’s 5-year Warranty


  • THRESHOLD: Small shaft on rear of control housing, controls threshold tone.
  • MODE: Three‑position toggle switch:
  1. IRON DISC Mode for iron discrimination.
  2. NORMAL Mode for normal All Metal operation.
  3. AUDIO BOOST Mode for hearing faint, deep targets.
  • Dual-purpose potentiometer with switch for Audio‑Tone battery test, controls sensiti­vity to targets, electrical interference and ground minerals
  • GROUND REJECT : Dual-knob control used to electronically tune the electronics to ignore ground minerals. A small, single‑turn coarse adjust knob is stacked on a large, 16‑turn fine tuning control.
  • VOLUME : Turns the power on and controls signal response volume. 
  • HEADPHONES : Jack for most mono and stereo headphones with 1/4-inch plug.
