Tesoro DeLeón

The Tesoro DeLeón is an advanced metal detector specifically designed for coin shooting and relic hunting. It is patterned after the same circuit used in the Cortés and ensures maximum performance and accuracy in use. It uses advanced microprocessor technology to provide high performance treasure hunting in a lightweight package.

The DeLeón features an advanced numerical Target ID readout, as well as a 5-segment bar graph to help identify buried objects before digging them up. The LCD screen also features a large numerical coin depth meter to help pinpoint exact target locations.

The DeLeon’s LCD readouts are easier to see than the flagship Tesoro Cortes, which packs in more information and signal response measurements.

There are 4 important controls for Sensitivity, Discriminate, Threshold and Mode for a streamlined treasure hunting experience. No need to fumble around with hundreds of settings every time you turn on the machine.

The De Leon has a standard Discrimination mode which is controllable via the control dial, and it also features an All Metal search mode for Pinpointing.

The included elliptical search coil measures 8×9 inches and operates at 10 kHz. Power is provided by a total of 8 AA batteries which are housed in two battery holders with 4 batteries each. An built-in battery indicator also warns if the De Leon is about to run out of juice.
