We have had massive storms here in Devon this winter. Most days I've been out for 5 hours detecting. Today I went wading and on the wet sand. I was finding the usual trash, a few coins, then I got a good signal, it was hard to recover the target as there was quite a swell running, and I nearly gave up on it, but I was glad I stuck with it when I saw a massive 37.7 gram gold nugget in the scoop! I couldn't believe my eyes! It's the biggest nugget I've ever seen! Check it out! Minelab I love your detectors, they are the best in the world, Thank you, thank you, you really have changed my fortune no doubt about!

470 grams nugget found with my GPX 5000

GPX 5000

March 10, 2014 10:00am

hello people I'm here again!

I am very happy because I come here for the third story you see another great success story with my GPX 5000. The same week I got over 110 ranges of gold in a land full of junk , I had yet another great find.

I was working with my GPX 5000 with the 18" commander coil, when I came across a strong signal by half a diameter roughly one square meter, then quickly realized that it was a large object and very deep, but I was not sure if it was really gold, so I started digging, after digging over half of meter, I realized I was still too deep when I stopped a little digging to rest, I spotted my father far with a detector, so I yelled at him come help me! so told him I had a very deep subject and even joked with him saying it was a gold nugget would be more than 300 grams, so we started digging, after more than a meter deep coil placed inside the hole and I realized that it was still very deep and difficult to locate, so I dug a little more and started using the PRO-FIND 25 to pinpoint, after some more digging I came across 20 cm a yoke and a half large stone when I got the rock in my hand just screaming out because I felt the weight and knew that it was a large gold nugget.

more than 110 grams of gold found with my GPX 5000

GPX 5000

hello to all!

I'm here to share another success story with my GPX 5000 with Coil 15 x 12" Elliptical Mono Commander and my PRO-FIND 25.

More or less in the middle of the second week of February 2014, was working in the same mine that a week before I found a 130 grams nugget, when I came across a soil with a lot of garbage, ( nail, cans, iron, etc. ... more gave me a hunch)

Then changed the configuration to high trash, and continued detecting, dig more than 20 ferrous objects came the first reward a nugget of 23.7 grams approximately 35 cm deep…

Soon after less than two meters away took a nugget of 6.5 grams, and in the same hole and 3 more nails and a piece of aluminium can, my detector reaches many deep targets, then in the same place, I noticed a sign so I dug about 10 centimeters and realized that target was too deep , then kept digging, digging roughly one meter deep, I saw it at the bottom of the hole my reward, a beautiful nugget 79.5 grams.

130 gram nugget found with my GPX 5000

GPX 5000

March 09, 2014 08:00am

hello, I've been metal detecting for more than 16 years, but me, my dad and my uncles are also work in mining, and always with Minelab detectors.

I am a former employee of Minelab Americas DIOGO MILK, in early February I returned to mining work using a Minelab detector, the commander GPX 5000 with the 18" coil.

Within the first week, I was lucky to get a nugget 130 grams, was about 1.2 meter deep.

I was very happy. I advise all detectorists and prospectors buy a GPX5000.

My first day, my first find.

Eureka Gold

March 06, 2014 09:00am

After years of wanting to buy a detector and head down to the Victorian gold fields, I finally pulled my finger out and got a 2nd hand Eureka Gold. (thought I would start basic before going for a GPX 5000). Anyway, packed the camper trailer and off on my road trip to Bendigo. Took me 10 days to get there (I stopped a lot). Awesome town with lots of history. So, off I head towards Dunolly to a shop as a friend suggested to get some pointers on how to use my new toy, but also, got lost down a dirt road.

The extreme versatility of the Commander 15 x 12 Mono.

GPX 5000

February 08, 2014 11:00am

After using a Minelab GPX 5000, the above photo was set up and taken using a march fly as a measuring stick to show the extreme capabilities of the Commander 15 x 12 Mono coil and what is capable of.

While the 15X12 Commander on the GPX 5000 you have the capability to locate the smallest of shallow gold nuggets (some that will not register a weight on scales as above) to the other extreme, where depth and size are also attained.

A fantastic combination and all rounder.
