The Fastest, Lightest, and Simplest Way to Find More Gold

New Minelab GPX 6000 makes any prospector an expert gold detector, employing new technology to find all gold in all soils all the time

Chicago, IL (April 21, 2020) – Finding gold beneath the ground isn’t easy, even for the most-experienced detectorists. Why? Because challenging and diverse soil conditions can create a variety of complex ground signals that often confuse current gold-detecting technologies… as well as the detectorists interpreting them.

MinelabTM, the global leader in metal-detecting technology, repeatedly stakes its reputation on delivering solutions to the complex problems that get in the way of making more discoveries. Within the realm of gold hunting – from the tiniest flakes to the heaviest nuggets – the search just got faster, lighter and simpler than ever, with the announcement of the all-new Minelab GPX 6000TM smart, all-gold detector, powered by new Geo-Sense-PITM technology.

GeoSense-PI (Pulse Induction) technology precisely analyzes gold signals while eliminating ground signals, allowing both beginning and expert nugget hunters to hear all gold pieces clearly. GeoSense-PI technology responds to ground signals with great clarity and precision, accurately isolating and reporting gold signals in the most-difficult environments – even those once considered undetectable. It rapidly suppresses unwanted signals via three overlapping feedback systems for superfast detection of all gold pieces, placing anyone swinging the GPX 6000 completely in tune with the piece of Earth they’re hunting.

The new Minelab GPX 6000 is the fastest, lightest and simplest way to find all types of gold in one machine. With automatic features and an easy-to-use interface, the GPX 6000 is ready to find gold from the moment it’s switched on. And because GeoSense-PI continuously adapts to changing soil conditions during use, there’s no need to adjust any settings; simply swing the detector and find gold.

Detect longer and remain more comfortable with premium ergonomics that contribute to a lighter swing. Weighing a feathery 2.1 kg (4.6 lbs), the new Minelab GPX 6000 incorporates serious features like carbon fiber shafts, a streamlined and intuitive control box, signature U‑Flex armrest, and a new Li-Ion quick-release rechargeable battery. Delivering up to eight hours of operation on a single charge, the new, lightweight battery design ensures the GPX 6000 won’t give up the hunt before you do.

The GPX 6000 includes a versatile 11″ Monoloop coil for an ideal balance between ground coverage and pinpointing small gold pieces, as well as a larger 14″ Double-D coil to detect gold accurately in the saltiest of environments. Both included coils are waterproof to 1 m/3 ft. For even more versatility, the new GPX 6000 is also compatible with Minelab’s GPX 17TM, 17” x 13” elliptical Monoloop coil (not included).

The Minelab GPX 6000’s rainproof LCD user interface is backlit for high-contrast viewing in a variety of conditions and allows easy control of user-selectable functions and modes.

Like other proven and trusted Minelab detectors, the new GPX 6000 is both durable and reliable. Tested in the harsh environments of gold fields worldwide, the GPX 6000 can withstand both extreme heat and heavy rains. Evidence of such comes in the form of a 3-year warranty backed by Minelab’s global support.
