Minelab to showcase consumer and landmine clearance detectors at SHOT Show 2024.

Chicago, IL (January 19, 2024) – Minelab, the world leader in metal-detecting technologies for gold prospecting, treasure hunting, and landmine clearance, will be fully detectable at SHOT Show 2024. Located in the Venetian Expo Level 1, this year’s Minelab booth (#41516) is a can’t-miss stop for SHOT Show attendees.

Made famous by the hit History Channel show, The Curse of Oak Island, Minelab DETEXPERT, Gary Drayton, will be in the Minelab booth on Wednesday, January 24, greeting fans and providing tips and other information relative to Minelab metal-detecting equipment and technologies.



Priced to be a gateway into the sport, the X-TERRA PRO offers more for the money than any metal detector, ever.

Topping the list of attributes is simplicity. The X-TERRA PRO was engineered to be easily operated, while still providing the technical edge Minelab is known for. And that advanced simplicity begins with preset Search Modes that instantly operate on frequencies best suited for specific environments, to include parks, fields, and beaches. In fact, each of those terrains offer two unique settings within, to further accommodate specifically what’s under your feet. And when it’s time to take control of your own detecting destiny, Minelab’s exclusive PRO-SWITCH™ technology turns over the reins so you can switch frequencies from 5, 8, 10, and 15 kHz, and detect even deeper.

The X-TERRA PRO’s large, backlit, LCD screen displays easily identified icons for each Search Mode. Moreover, the screen reveals other important intelligence like signal strength, frequency, battery power, volume, and more. More seasoned hunters can refine settings quickly and easily, too.

The soft-touch button array located below the screen is equally as straightforward. Quick button pushes let the user adjust frequency and sensitivity, change terrain settings, employ an All Metal Shortcut, pinpoint targets, and more.

With multiple tone audio options, the sound of treasure has never been clearer — X-TERRA PRO’s advanced audio means you’ll not only ‘hear’ if a target is trash or treasure, but you’ll also be able to gauge its size and depth simply by listening. Enjoy the crystal-clear audio with in-built Speaker (included) or lightning-fast low latency wireless headphones, wired headphones, and waterproof headphones – all compatible and available Minelab accessories.

The daylight may have ended, but that doesn’t mean your hunt has to — with control pod flashlight, red backlight display, backlit keypad, and handgrip vibration you can power on long after the sun has gone.

Feel free to detect creek beds and those shallow tidal waters because the X-TERRA PRO is fully waterproof down to 16-feet (5 meters). So not only can you detect underwater, but you’re also protected in rain and if by chance the detector takes an unexpected dunk in the drink.

Quite frankly, X-TERRA PRO dominates at the beach and a dedicated Beach Mode handles the most difficult saltwater conditions.

And because Minelab is committed to leading the pack for performance and support, the X-TERRA PRO is backed by Minelab’s global network and has up a to 3-year warranty.

X-TERRA PRO offers an array of waterproof coils and is compatible with V12X™ 12″x 9″ Elliptical Double-D (included), V8X™ 8″x5″ Elliptical Double-D, and V10X™ 10″x7″ Elliptical Double-D coils (accessory) so you’ll be prepared for any terrain. X-TERRA PRO is also compatible with all EQUINOX® series coils.

Developed for the complete detectorist, the PRO-FIND 40 pinpointer isolates and identifies targets with advanced technology and offers unparalleled performance. Features include increased depth range, adjustable 5-level sensitivity, Rapid Re-tune, ferrous tone ID, high visibility, and handy lost-alarm. With the PRO-FIND 40, discover coins, rings and gold precisely — on land and underwater — with remarkable depth and speed, and with a 20 hour battery life.


Finely tuned algorithms and circuitry deliver a solid increase in detection depth by 10% (compared to PRO-FIND 35) making PRO-FIND 40 Minelab’s deepest and most accurate pinpointer on the market.


Five sensitivity levels enable you to precisely adjust for maximum depth and minimum noise in all ground conditions.


Audio tones and vibration intensify as the probe approaches the target making recovery easier, especially underwater. A handy LED flashlight lets you operate and identify objects in low light.


The PRO-FIND 40 is fully waterproof down to 10-feet (3 meters)


Rapidly re-tune your PRO-FIND 40 to suit your environment at the press of a button, minimizing interference in challenging ground conditions.


Two different responses help identify ferrous junk from non-ferrous treasure.


DIF significantly reduces interference with an operating detector when PRO-FIND 40 is switched off.


PRO-FIND series pinpointers feature a lost-alarm that sounds after a period of inactive use. This makes it easy to locate your forgotten PRO-FIND 40, even in long grass, so you never leave it behind.


Coil design advancements, algorithm tuning and the new Rapid Re-tune feature make the PRO-FIND 40 the most reliable pinpointer ever. This means you can trust every signal and retrieve targets with ease.
