Yes, at 45KHz it is getting very GB2'ish

More like GMT'ish. Going by the size of the hand full of nuggets in the video that mentiond JP Field Tester, 12 nuggets in 45 minutes,  they weren't too shabby. Very interesting. I didnt see what size the two coils were.  One looked about 5" round. Wasn't too impressed with the guys sweep pattern at 42 seconds in on the video. Cheers.

It's funny... I tried looking at the specs on the Minelab site as per the instructions and link in that thread, and I can't select Gold Monster 1000...

Maybe Minelab do have forum scourers, and they saw that the cat was out of the bag a little early .

I recall that the same thing happened before the GPZ 7000 was released: just before the official announcement, you could view the specs using the same method of comparing detectors on their site... up until it was all over the forums. Then the option disappeared until it was officially announced/released.

Ok Steve when you get your hands on one. it would be great to see a shootout between new minelab monster, Gb 2, Gold Racer, and new Fisher gold detector when they are all available.  What is a the 1000 in the name of the minelab for? 1000 bucks, 1000 cc, 1000 sweeps an hour?

I'm going to just keep on using my 20 year old gold bug 2. I'm scared of monsters.

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.]"

      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:
