Dreams come true via a GPX 5000

13 Nov 2013

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!!!

Thanks Minelab for the great machinery. You are the best.

The Benefits of Recording finds made by Metal Detectorists in Europe

23 Oct 2013


Over the centuries, historical items, such as coins and artefacts have been discovered in the ground. As far back as Edward the Confessor finders were rewarded for items of Treasure Trove, although in ancient times this was intended to bolster the coffers of the then ruling monarch and there was not much concern for their historical importance. However we now live in a more enlightened age where the importance of such finds is recognised for their cultural importance to the nation.

Most farmland both in the UK and the rest of Europe, contains some level of archaeological material and it is recognised that a large proportion of this  would be vulnerable to degradation or destruction by modern invasive agriculture practices or succumb to other factors such as development pressures, if it were not recovered

Success in the goldfields of Zimbabwe

Minelab gold detectors are responsible for major gold finds across the globe, including just recently a 5.5kg nugget found in Australia at 60cms depth using Minelab’s GPX 5000 valued in excess of US$300,000!

Many Zimbabweans are also using the GPX Series metal detectors with enormous success. Just in recent weeks, a prospector in Zimbabwe discovered a 1118 gram nugget using Minelab’s GPX 5000 and a group of 6 prospectors discovered an 850g nugget with the GPX 5000 in the Matabeleland region and days later another lucky Minelab user pulled a 99 gram nugget from the ground in nearby Bulawayo.

Out and about…with the Scouts at Mr and Mrs Sheckters place.

Metal detecting is such a rewarding pastime and it is always nice when the time and effort spent in gaining permissions is repaid in making an interesting find or two from a new field.  Our hobby can also be rewarding in many other ways and it is this belief that has always been a fundamental part of the Southern Detectorist Group’s way of doing things.
