Detech has introduced two new coils for the Minelab GPX, GP, SD series of Gold Detectors. They are listing them as "New Technology".

They are currently being tested in the Australian Outback.  I will have pricing, availability and more information as I get it from Detech.


Please pm me if interested.

Hey Rege,


I am interested....was waiting to get the Elite around Christmas time, but now you put a twist in my plan...haha...please keep me informed about the new coils. The Detech 10x15 Mono is my primary coil these days. I put on the others for a while but always resort going back to the Detech because of its stability and its not bump sensitive.

Hi Jasong,

As soon as the Zed came out Detech realized the need for some new coils for those swinging the other GPX, GP and SD detectors. They took their time as I and Stinky Pete in OZ asked for some new coil offerings many, many months ago, so much time was involved in research and development.

I have no info on the " New Technology ", only that they listed the coils to me under that heading in an email.

So, I guess they will compete with the others out there.

I expect an initial order soon and will post more on pricing and availability.


Thanks for your interest.

Hi Rege,


Yes I am and I cant explain how it does it....but I do know when I have my D coil on I find gold. I think it has something to do with how dang stable they run. In the beginning I had to throw something on the ground so I knew it was working, realizing its just stable and you can't beat the fact that it passes the bump test very well. The only other coil that comes close is the Nuggetfinder coils I have, but Detech coils are priced better. Can't wait to hear the test results and how well it does compared to the Coiltek Elite 14" Mono.

      Hi. I'm looking for a smaller than the 6x10 DD coil for my White's detectors. Would like to hear how the 7" Ultimate performs depthwise and how target separation is.

      Hey all,
         I was just wondering if anyone else know's anything about these 3 detectors! The flyers where in my new coil boxes! 👍👍

      I am looking at getting an after market coil for the MXT. Has anyone tried one of the Ultimate or SEF coils by Detech on their unit and if so which model and size did you get and how much of an improvement was it compared to the stock coil??

      Detech 13" DD Ultimate coil for V3i, VX3, M6, MX5, and all MXT models

      After a busy week, doing an effort between heavy rain interruptions, I finally finished this work!
      Thanks for all people involved in this project for their knowledge shared...
      Underwater test next week(I hope)

      Hello to all 2 weeks a go i took the plunge and bought the most suitable coil for my needs......its heavier than my other coil but the aim was :
      How deep can i really dig
      And how much ground can i cover
      So i mounted the beast on my carbon shaft after a few rubber washer adjustment i was all set.Tide was good weather was clear but it s dark after 5pm and the beach has mudflats and alone with limited network i won't take risk of getting stranded.Anyway it heavier and after a few adjustment with the SAT ,the gain  and the delay i was all set.
      This coil is blasting targets really hard i pick up the knife at 50cm and dug a real crater ,not many targets except the silver earing and the find of the day a Silver Long cross penny circa ad 1272-1303 nothing really amazing but i could not  find anything old about this area...........
      Next day went back to try the CTX on the right side on the spot and i pick up lots of fishing weights.
      Can wait to try the coil again maybe next Monday

      Been reading a lot about the new Coiltek, Nugget Finder & now Detech coils of late. I haven't had much to do with any of these but have detected a small area immediately after 2 x GPX4500 with the Coiltek Elite 14" mono attached. Although not an exhaustive or scientific test the end result was I got 8 x subgram nuggets from the area with the SDC & the 4500's nothing. 2 of the subgrammers came from adjacent to their scrapings so they knew something was there but was still iffy enough to walk away from. I keep hearing or reading how these coils are transforming GPX's into SDC's or even GPZ's but this short "test", for want of a better word, put some doubts in my mind.
      I've got no doubt that there is improvement in the new coils in how they enhance the target information or audio response of the detector through better windings etc. but I'm not entirely convinced it's as substantial as some make out. My thoughts are it may be about 10% performance improvement  (every bit does help regardless) & 90% of a placebo effect i.e. you buy a new coil excited by the possibilities of it's performance, you regain some enthusiasm & become more positive in approach even detecting more carefully + with more purpose - then when you find gold of course it's the new coil that done it right? 
      Another thing that has me scratching my head is how excited people are about them finding very small gold. My smallest bit with a GPX5000, fine gold & standard 11" Minelab Commander mono coil was 0.03 of gram (I think about 0.46 of a grain) so they have always been capable of doing it even with an unfashionable coil (but still a good one).
      Like I said I'm not doubting that there are definite performance improvements, much like the introduction of litz wire, but I do believe a lot can also be attributed to a refreshed or reinvigorated enthusiasm too. 
      New detectors could also have a very similar affect on us. What do the experts reckon?
