Metal Detector vs. Magnetometer
If you are searching primarily for nonferrous metal (gold, silver, lead, brass, bronze, aluminum, etc.), the best piece of equipment is a metal detector.
If you are searching primarily for ferrous metal objects (iron and steel), the best piece of equipment is a magnetometer. The advantage of using a magnetometer is that it has a much greater detection area than a metal detector.
