Will a metal detector detect gold?
Yes, metal detectors detect gold but there are different detectors that are optimized for different types of gold. Jewelry, coins and other large amounts will be found easily by all purpose metal detectors. Gold detectors are designed for finding gold in the raw - flakes, tiny nuggets or deposits in highly mineralized soil.

Of course they do.
Since gold is a metal (precious) you can of course detect it with a metal detector. But only if it isn't tuned to ignore gold. since every metal has a different phase response… metal detectors with discriminators can be tuned to ignore certain metals.
If you are talking about metal detector that you buy as a hobby for finding things then yes of course it will. But security metal detectors are adjusted so they aren't usually… set off by something like earrings or a ring if that is what you mean. Though if you have a lump of silver in your pocket I imagine you would set off any metal detector. There are many instances of metal detectors detecting silver. Some of the largest treasure finds in the UK were hordes of silver coins found by people using metal detectors.
Sure if there is enough metal like steel rebar
no, because aluminum foil is not a metal, it is an alloy.
Yes they can. Metal is like gold.
Ok, so I pretty much go to a school in Virginia for all the misfits, honestly. They don't allow cell phones of any kind & we also have an airport scanner that shows what's ins…ide our bags & binders. But I have found a way to get my phone through the scanner with no suspicion. Take your phone & wrap it about 5 times with plastic wrap. Then, take 2 regular pieces of sandwich bread & place your phone inside the 2 pieces. Wrap the bread, with your phone inside, in tin foil. Put the tin foil wrapped "sandwich"in a brown baggie or a lunch box. Since it won't be going through a metal detector, the tin foil shouldn't be a problem.This strategy mite waste bread... But it works. If you find any other ways to get it through without such a hassle, please let me know! Good luck! I hope it all works out!
Carbon Fiber, yes.
no it just means it has a sparkle or shine to it as metal does
No it cannot.
wrap it in foil
No because aluminium foil is metal.
