Minelab currently offers Basic and Advanced level training, as shown in the table opposite, offering a progression from basic through to trainer level to increase local technical expertise and help our prospectors to find more gold.

Our training programmes reflect our commitment to Community and Environment initiatives for the future.

Field training also gives Minelab personnel opportunities to interact with prospectors from around the world and learn more about how Minelab can continue to best serve their needs.

Quick Start Guides and Product Training DVD

Minelab also has Quick Start Guides for the X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack, Eureka Gold and GPX 5000, which include a Decal that overlays the control panel of the detector to show the optimum settings for immediate ‘switch on and go’ prospecting for new gold miners.

For specific information and training on each detector, a Product Training DVD for all Gold Detectors is freely available, as are the Quick Start Guides. Click on the image opposite to download the Quick Start Guide for your detector and for a Product Traiing DVD, please contact your nearest Minelab Authorised Dealer or Distributor.
