Minelab Metal Detectors President, Peter Charlesworth said the devices detect small nuggets and fine-threaded specimen gold in mineral rich soils about a meter deeper.

Where can I buy one, a meter deeper than the current detectors? FAR OUT! Maybe it's the new GPZ version 2.

Looks like it won't be long and the market will be flooded with clone detectors now they're making them in Africa.  One out the front door, two out the back.

"Al Hilali Group General Manager, Amged el-Rashid said the price for the different models of the detector devices ranges from $2300 to $12500."

I'm always confused.  When an Australian company, in Africa, partnered with Dubai,  lists a price what currency is it in?

So that squelches the rumor that Minelab is phasing out the X-Terra.  Or maybe its going to be a limited release market for African fossickers.  But if the Vanquish doesn't have a gold mode there is still room for the X-Terra in their product line across the globe.

Fischer is too busy making Skis to worry about detectors :laugh:

Kiwi is easy to understand, we speak the same language as Americans, although we speak it properly.  🙂

This article is aimed at their local market being a local website, and they have the prices in the Ethiopian birr in the story.

https://www.ena.et/en/?p=9037

Al Hilali Group General Manager, Amged el-Rashid said the price for the different models of the detector devices ranges from 65,000 birr to 350,000 birr.

65,000 birr is 2,243.17USD at today's exchange rate so I assume the GPX 4500, and $350,000 birr which I guess will be the GPZ is 12,078.60USD

I'm a bit puzzled about where the X-terra fits into this as there is no way the X-terra is the 65,000 birr detector, it has to be the GPX. 

Seems our Ethiopian friends are going to be paying big money for their detectors.

Do you have a link to the press statement you're talking about?  It would be even more interesting with the current rumours of the GPX 4500 being discontinued, perhaps just in certain regions this is going to be the case.

      I see the Minelab GPX 4500 is being discontinued. If the price goes down is it worth it to pick one up or has what replaced it that much better? Perhaps a premium will now be asked for the remaining new GPX 4500's? Is now the time to buy??

      Seen this on Chris's forum.  Strange that it is only the SDC and the Gold Monster.

      There are quite a few newer folks on the forums and some are about to purchase a gold detector.  I want to give you an update.
      My Field Staff Experts and I will be offering our 1st of 2019 season a 3 Day Field Training on Gold Detectors, Friday April 12th - Sunday 14th.  I was just notified a couple can not make it and one other from back east won't either.  This means I have 3 openings right now.
      Any customer who purchases a gold detector from me of $2500+ can take the class for free.   With the GPZ-7000 promo going on right now and you getting the additional 19" coil (valued at $1500).  Purchase one of these from me...ATX Deep Seeker, GPX-4500, GPX-5000, SDC-2300 or GPZ-7000 and you get a variety of classes to choose from.  Yes I also offer a 15% Military discount on Minelabs.
      How good is our training?  Just ask the folks who have taken the class (some of them are on this forum).
      Please do not think you are going on a gold hunt.  Our training is for Educating you on the proper use of your detector.  Each of my staff members and I will be plugging in our headphones into a splitter with your phones and into your detector while teaching you the sounds to walk away from and the ones to investigate.  We'll be explaining how to tell ground noise from a genuine target doing the details over and over.  Each of us say the same thing, but in different words/tones, so after 3 days of instruction, you actually start to understand.  From past experiences, the most gold is usually found on the last day, as you are starting to put everything together.  We teach much more with the detectors, their technologies but I won't go into detail.
      Contact me direct with any questions.

      and he needed to confirm my address to ship my repaired compadre back to me.  I sent in my compadre, I think it was last October, for warranty work.  Then, two days later I read that they had laid off all their employees.  Hadn't heard a thing since and wasn't overly distraught since I hardly ever use the compadre and I had a new equinox.  But, out of the blue yesterday Vince calls and says he put a new disc pot and a new coil on my compadre and is sending it home.  So if anyone else here had shipped one for warranty work and thought they might never get it back because the company went under there's still hope.  It seems he's still working on making good on all the warranty claims as long as they were made before they decided to call it quits.  I'm actually now looking forward to getting that little compadre back!  I never did use it a whole lot, but it has found me two gold rings.
