GPX 5000

Metal Detector Finds - Purified Gold

I would like thanks Minelab for the best products, I’m South Sudanese by nationality. Living in Ouagadougou Burkina Faso as a refugee, GPX 5000 and GPX-4500 are the wonderful and best metal detectors I came across. I received a lot of phone calls and inquiries by my friends concerning the metal detector, some friends bought GPX-4500 7 in South Sudan, 3 in Chad, 2 here in Burkina Faso, 2 in Niger and still many of friends always asked me how good the detector is and they are planning to buy more.

One friend bought and asked me that his father buried some gold...

Nugget Hunting in Southern Africa

Metal Detector Finds - Gold Nugget

This 1 118 gram gold nugget was found 30cms deep in red iron stone rubble. The nugget is impregnated with very small quartz fragments as can be seen in the photo. The edges of the nugget are rounded off and smooth. It was nestling next to a large granite boulder in relatively flat ground with no hills in the close vicinity. The area has produced one other large nugget and many smaller ones ranging from 450g down to 3g.

GPX-4500 is the Best of All

Metal Detector Finds - Gold Nugget

GPX-4500 is the best of all. This gorgeous piece of gold, 263 grams was found at 80cm deep with 18" Mono Commander coil. I was the only one with GPX-4500 among many other prospectors with various detectors. 6 prospectors claimed that they passed on the exact same spot where I found this nugget but none of them heard that faint signal. Previously the area produced dozens of nuggets and many where of similar size but not at this depth. Minelab, I'd like to thank you very very much for this wonderful detector. Now I'm more convinced that there are many nuggets lying deep beneath awaiting to be found.

Minelab Delivers


July 10, 2009 03:00pm

I purchased my first metal detector in 1999. It was not a Minelab detector and results of this machine were not so impressive and hence made me look for a more powerful machine and that was Minelab XT18000 and I purchased it in 2000. I am aware of several companies that produce metal detectors but I never bought any machine from them since my friends who have such machines never recovered the money they paid for them. They are simply ineffective.
