They cope better than most but not a gold machine. They will find an old 3d very deep but not gold. I used mine all weekend at Wedderburn which is very hot ground and it handled the mineralisation.

The Sov GT was/is an excellent all-rounder. Chest mount it and use it for shallow wading. Use it for coin/relic shooting, and you can use it in mineralised dirt. Sure it lacked a bit of sensitivity to sub grammers, but it handles hot ground better than a lot of VLF gold beepers.
For mineralised soils, I found the best settings Volume Max, Auto Sensitivity, Threshold to a nice hum, and Track. And sweep very slow and steady like a gold detector.
These are the easiest second hand detector to sell these days, as there is always demand for them.
Here is a Treasure Talk blog I wrote on it:
