Burial chamber discovered with Rover C II in Tunisia

June 26, 2019

For OKM and its dealers support and service goes beyond the purchase of detectors. As a result, we as manufacturer and service provider are grateful for getting positive feedback from dealer colleagues and, of course, directly from clients.


Success story in Tunisia

We recently received a success story with the Rover C II grave and tunnel detector: A client of our Belgian dealer inventum detector (IVM) sent us 3D images and photos of his grave chamber find in Tunisia. The discoverer did not comment on found artifacts and burial valuables such as weapons and jewelry. Without any further information on the burial site, it is uncertain for whom it was built and which epoch of Tunisia's lively history the discovery belongs to – starting with the Phoenicians, influenced by the trading power of Carthage and the competition with the Roman Empire, through numerous battles for supremacy and religion to the French colonial domination.

Numerous data were collected during the measurement with the Rover C II as well as during the immediate inspection of the site. The measurement data were evaluated with the OKM software Visualizer 3D and clearly show a long cavity. According to the client’s specifications, the burial chamber is located at a depth of about 9,8 to 13,2 ft (3 to 4 m). Pictures testify to the underground find and illustrate the nature of the walls of the site.

Rover series generates treasure hunting success

The metal detector Rover C II is not an ordinary metal detector with sound output, but a grave and cavity detector which can create excellent three-dimensional graphics of the scanned underground. The combination of geoelectrical measurement and metal detection makes this treasure hunter particularly interesting for archaeologists and cavity seekers looking for treasures, burial caves and buried artifacts.
The Rover C II has meanwhile been replaced by the advanced OKM treasure and cavity detector Rover C4. The current model Rover C4 offers:
  • simplified operation
  • multilingual user interface
  • LED illumination for night measurements
  • wireless data transfer
  • 4 memory locations for measurement data
  • Standard probe and Super Sensor with innovative LED orbit
  • different modes of operation that make the Rover C4 a versatile treasure detector.
