The Minelab GPX 5000 is the most powerful
gold nugget detector produced today. Alaska Mining & Diving Supply
founder Steve Herschbach has been tremendously successful with the
Minelab SD/GP series detectors. Steve started out with the Minelab
SD 2000 and has used every SD and GP model made since the SD 2000
was introduced, and he got the first GPX 5000 sold in Alaska. Steve is by no means sold on any one brand or model of
detector, but when it comes to finding large gold nuggets in highly
mineralized soils he believes a Minelab SD or GP series detector is
simply the best for the job. The worse the ground mineralization and
hot rocks get, the better the SDs and GPs will compare to other detectors.
If you want a detector that will find large gold nuggets deeper than
any other detector, you need look no further than a Minelab pulse induction

|Little or No
Gives significantly greater depth on medium to
large targets in areas with nil to very mild ground
Finds a good variety of target sizes in mildly
mineralized ground. Similar but more powerful than
Normal. It is capable of an improvement in depth, but is
also more susceptible to interference and ground noise.
Provides the best signal response on small gold in mild
to medium ground mineralization.
Gives great performance on a wide range of soil
conditions, and target sizes. It is a good default
timing to assess a new area.
(GPX 5000 ONLY)
Provides the best signal response on small to large gold
in salt saturated and mineralized ground conditions. It
will operate very well on salt lakes and beaches.
(GPX 5000 ONLY)
Finds sub-gram gold nuggets that Enhance cannot. It is
more sensitive and detects deeper than Enhance.
Runs quietly in most heavily mineralized, variable and
"hot rock" infested grounds using a monoloop coil. It is
more sensitive and detects deeper than Sensitive Smooth
but can be slightly more affected by severe ground
Is optimized for the most severe, heavily
mineralized, variable and "hot rock" infested grounds,
even when using a Monoloop coil.
