Green Benefits - Prospecting

Gold miners can use Minelab handheld gold detectors to prospect for gold nuggets.

Using Minelab detectors means that when they dig, they dig for a reason and in the labour-intensive world of small scale gold mining, the ability to find more gold with accuracy is important.

The move to technology is a decision that small scale gold miners are making every day and Minelab works hard to make this change easy by outlining the benefits.
