Dreams come true via a GPX 5000

Metal detector finds - gold

We were in Matabeleland region in the early hours of the day determined to search for the gold nuggets. Our first 15 steps as we followed the GPX 5000 with an 18 inch dish were drawn into attention by a heavy noise of a target signal, whose depth was less than a meter. 

We dug the target area and came across a solid 850g nugget. Wow we first shocked and puzzled because in our entire detecting job we had never seen such. The thought that came into the mind was to knock off from the hunt and celebrate the victory!!!

Imagine how surprised I was on the first day of training with Minelab, I found a nugget in Kisumu with the Minelab GPX 5000 during training. I am very happy as I have also found a new place to go looking for nuggets.

Metal detectorist finds gold nugget

Winner of Find of the Month - July, 2013

I have been detecting with Minelab for the last 2 years and have been very lucky. Today I found a 99 gram nugget and then another 21 grams through the rest of the day.

I am very blessed to be using Minelab. I wish all Zimbabweans could have the same Minelab so they can be as lucky as me.

Success in the Kalahari

Metal detecting finds - gold nuggets

I bought my first detector, a GPX 5000 in September 2012 and haven't had the chance to use it as I am always busy with my full time job.

In December, I got it out from the cupboard and took it along to our rural area in the Kalahari desert over the weekend to give it a try. I went out to the ground on Friday afternoon and didn't have much luck for the day.

Metal detecting finds - gold nugget

I was told by my friends to buy the Minelab GPX 5000 machine and I am so happy that I bought my Minelab GPX 5000.

I have been looking for gold in the fields for many years and have never been lucky to find such a large nugget.

Metal detecting finds - gold nugget

Winner of Find of the Month - December 2012

Minelab came to the area that we have many small miners looking for gold using panning with wind. Minelab wanted to show the miners how the metal detector works. After showing them how it works, I took the X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack to use in the area they have been working in now for over 3 weeks and have not found that much gold. We know that the gold is there as others have found gold nearby.
