Mine detection became more difficult when the minimum metal mine ("plastic mine") was developed. This meant that mine detectors had to become far more sensitive in order to detect the small amounts of metal contained within the mine.

In developing more sensitive detectors, real world experience soon revealed another technical challenge which arose from attempting to detect mines in mineralised soils. Due to the metallic characteristics of mineralised soils, the newly developed more sensitive detectors would "alarm" on the soil. In many instances, the only solution to overcome the effects of the soil was to reduce the sensitivity of the detector. However, this defeated the original need for high sensitivity to detect minimum metal mines. Consequently, the potential to miss mines during clearance operations increased.

To combat this problem, Minelab developed unique technology that automatically removes the effects of mineralised soils but maintains sufficient sensitivity to detect mines. This break through in technology quickly made Minelab the detector of choice in many locations around the world.

To date, Minelab's ability to combat the effects of mineralised soils remains superior as concluded in several internationally accredited evaluations.
