Minelab Gold Monster 1000 Metal Detector

Minelab Gold Monster 1000 Gold Nugget Prospecting Detector
Minelab Gold Monster 1000

The Minelab Gold Monster 1000 is new for 2017 and was created as a relatively inexpensive, easy to operate, high performance metal detector. The Gold Monster 1000 is designed specifically for gold prospecting but may have applications such as micro jewelry detecting.

At 45 kHz with both automatic ground tracking and automatic sensitivity settings, the Minelab Gold Monster 1000 is not only very sensitive to small gold but it is relatively easy for beginning detectorists to use. Here are first impressions from Steve Herschbach.
