The nice thing about belief is it is impervious to facts. No matter how many times it is explained that there is no transmitter sending magic signals to Minelab, people still think its true. Something

Back in July we were speculating on a new Minelab trademark filing for Geo Sense PI. Looks like now we have an inkling what that was about and that it is related to the upcoming GPX 6000 model. Here a

I’d be more worried about some of the mobile phone apps that you download for mapping, no one seems to have a problem walking around with one of these tracking/logging/listening devices in their pocke

It sounds increasingly like Geosense is a better form of automatic ground balance that perhaps automatically adjusts your sensitivity and settings to suit conditions if enabled.

 

Nothing here folks.  Everyone on this forum wants to tweak things and not rely upon 'automatic' settings.  haha

Probably pinpointing assistance, target on-screen visualization, and better ground balancing. 

I posted these as a guess when this Geosense logo was first registered, but worth revisiting since it still adds up. See this patent for "ease of use" regarding what sounds like target pinpointing and spatial visualization, maybe even with multiple targets on screen simultaneously. And this other patent to see how this might incorporate ground balancing too.

Going one further, check out the patent just granted a few weeks ago. So with depth analysis, we might get some kind of 3D target in-ground visualization coming eventually assuming this stuff isn't just for their military machines? The filing date was early enough it could maybe make it into a 6000?

Depending how accurate it is, that sort of thing can lead to a sort of target discrimination in places where certain trash tends to be shallow and nuggets tend to be deeper, or if it can provide some basic target geometry information. And the whole thing also makes me wonder if they might be trying for target size/geometry visualization too, though accuracy would really make the difference between that being useful and just being a curious gadget function. Totally off in the weeds guessing here though so it's moot.

If you take it to a flogged patch ... what will you see?  They must have seen something in testing.

I wonder how the 3D visualization, that they have for the military applications, would work on those tiny 0.05 g nuggets that you can barely even hear? Unless of course you hunt in Au and shoot for those monster nuggets that we always see here on the pics. 🙂 Perhaps the word "Geo" refers more to better ground sensing as Simon points out. But we shall see. I still think some sort of discrimination, like a supercharged version of the GM iron meter, would go a very long way and that you can use at your discretion. This would differentiate to the SDC and GPZ. Perhaps for this purpose the Geosense technology could be supportive. This would open up the use of a high end gold machine in super trashy ground, something right now only the GM can do with limited reach. In areas where tens of thousands of miners worked for decades a useful iron probability meter on a high end gold machine would surely come in handy.

And once they figure out how to discriminate lead from gold they can set the price for the machine to whatever dollar value they want and not worry about sales....

To follow their own marketing terminology, what would the experienced user say are the best features for the SDC and the GPX 5000?

SDC2300 - MPF (multi period fast) pulse induction, ease of set up/use  

GPX4500/5000 - large coil selection (DD, Mono, Concentric); multiple timings; multiple settings for ground balance & audio; ability to operate + set up manually for more experienced users or in presets/auto tracking for those wanting an easier set up + operation; manually adjustable rx gain/stabiliser; tuning manually adjustable

      Are JP et al trading in their Z7000s in favor of the 6000?  Is this the "Go To" machine for everyday prospectors?  From initial reports it would appear the 6000 excels at sub half gram nuggets in OZ soils, but isn't expected to compete with the 7000 on bigger/deeper gold.  Here in the US, will I have to sell a kidney for the luxury of having both detectors?  It may be some time before us CONUS prospectors even see the availability of such a machine, do I sell the 7000 before the market is flooded?  Does anybody know what the recovery time is for a kidney donor?

      Apr 19, 2021 The Gold Rush Guy - "Great to finally get the new Minelab GPX 6000 and take it out for a run. Very impressed with its sensitivity, especially the depth of even small pieces of gold. Apologies with the video quality. Will rectify in future hunts."

      The first video I've seen by somebody that knows stuff. 
      4/18/2021 Digging with PhaseTech - Well, it is finally out, and finding plenty of gold already! The Minelab GPX6000 was a fun project to be involved in. Here's the first of many videos where I will showcase finds, tips and techniques, comparisons and just having fun with it in the field.

      From luckystrikegold.com.au/product/detectorgpx6000/:
      “UPDATE 14/4/21 We are expecting the new GPX 6000 in next week in very limited quantities.”
      Not a peep out of U.S. dealers, but maybe Minelab is telling them nothing.
