Walco and Hodan
Prospecting Picks
"Quality Picks for Serious Prospectors!"

Manufactured in Arizona by HODAN MACHINE & MFG. These picks are used through out the U.S. by serious prospectors and treasure hunters.  Made from heat treated carbon steel to a surface hardness of Rc 50 - 55 and a depth of .030 inches, the picks are then tempered, giving these tools outstanding wear resistance and durability.  Each pick is fitted with a 16, 24 or 36 inch American hickory handle which is both wedged and pined to the head.  A small button magnet is attached to the end of the  handle for picking out small pieces of wire and boot tacks, which are so common in old mining areas, from the target area while metal detecting.  The heads on the CALICHE BUSTERS measures X 2 X 9 inches and the PROSPECTOR PICK measures X 2 X 12 inches.  The hoe end of the MODIFIED CALICHE BUSTER has an angle cut on it bringing the edge down to one inch across, whereas the CALICHE BUSTER is straight and measures two inches across.  The steel is gold zinc plated for appearance and to resist rusting.

I'm a personal friend of John Hodan, owner and manufacture of these greats prospecting picks.  I have used these picks for several years, and proud to say they are lightweight, durable and strong. 

All products are shipped US Priority 2-3 day mail, Delivery confirmation and Full insurance unless other wise requested.

Walco Prospecting Picks - Discontinued

Walco prospecting picks are manufactured and designed in Australia.  These picks are designed to take the worst abuse any electronic prospector can give it. 

Walco Picks come in two sizes, the 21 & 24 inch handle lengths.  I personally use the Walco picks, and can vouch for their durability in any goldfields.

New -Hodan Shovel Attachments

New and exciting shovel attachments for all Hodan Prospecting & Walking Picks.  These attachments are simple to use, and attach and unattached with a few simple wing nuts.  The shovel attachment has a small belt clip so you can equip this item on your belt, backpack or wherever is convenience for you!

I have personally tested this product and it works great!

Why have those big picks with the large flanged heads...?  They are heavy, bulky and always cut into your side when attached to your belt.  With this new invention, you can equip the shovel attachment whenever you desire.  Find some old drywasher tailing piles, equip the shovel attachment and see what they missed.  Great invention and easy to use!

The working surface of the attachment measures 6" X 6".  They are laser cut from 14 gage 4130 chrome/molly steel,  heat treated and tempered to an average Rc 41.5, and zinc plated to resist rusting.

36 inch Walking Pick

This pick is equipped with a 36inch hickory handle.  This pick does not have a small magnet attached to the end of the handle like the 16 and 24 inch picks do. 

I personally use this pick, and like the idea of the length.  You don't have to bend as often to retrieve surface trash.  This pick equipped with a Super Magnet is a great combination!

"Don't Forget the Super Magnet!"


Neodymium Super Magnet
1.5" x 1.5" x 3/8"

I'm proud to offer a super powerful nickel-plated Neodymium Iron Boron block magnet of very impressive size and strength. One of these magnets will lift over 100 pounds of iron! These are abnormally strong magnets, and serious care must be taken in storing and handling them.

Keep this magnet well away from electronics and magnetic strips (credit cards).  Don't buy this if you have a pacemaker. "I take no responsibility for injury, or property damage resulting from the mis-handling of this super magnet!"
