From Minelabs Facebook page:

"Thanks for your comments! For those people that have questions about the product name; Minelab’s new ENTRY-LEVEL specialist gold detector, the GOLD MONSTER 1000, has been designed to meet the needs of both consumer recreational enthusiasts and small-scale artisanal gold miners around the world. In order for this exciting new product to be distinctly recognisable to these diverse markets, Minelab has created a universal logo that reads left-to-right in English language script and right-to-left in stylised Arabic script. The Arabic pronunciation of GOLD MONSTER is “Wahesh Al Dahab”.

Further to the dual logo, Minelab will be providing 5 languages on the product carton and 8 languages in the Getting Started Guide to make the GOLD MONSTER 1000 our most universal detector to date. From America to Australia to Africa, and everywhere in-between, the GOLD MONSTER 1000 offers the newcomer to gold detecting their best chance of success!

[Note: The GOLD MONSTER 1000 supersedes Minelab’s Eureka Gold VLF detector.]"

Interesting - obvioisly aimed at the African gold market.  Fully automatic - same goal as FT announced a while back.  Looks like ML got to market first.

Crikey, gotta give it to Minelab, they have the media term "feeding the chooks" down to a fine art. Get us "cackling" amongst each other, "chaffing at the bit" in anticipation of release day. Have they cracked the mineralisation barriers holding VLF back? Just gotta find out...........back to the future maybe?

      This is a previously posted screenshot from the Minelab introductory video of the GM1000. I did a little quick paste work to block out distractions in the screenshot. Its worth a little study as regards the rod assembly. The GM1000 here is sporting the 5" round coil.

      With it's extra sensitive VLF performance, Minelab's new Gold Monster should make a superb meteorite detector:
