This is on the Minelab website, not much there now, but I am sure this is where the official release info will appear. They have the page up so it will embed into Google searches, and since it is Minelab, the page should get top ranking soon.

The Fastest, Lightest, and Simplest Way to Find More Gold
New Minelab GPX 6000 makes any prospector an expert gold detector, employing new technology to find all gold in all soils all the time. Source: Minelab Electronics 

Adelaide, Australia, April 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Finding gold beneath the ground isn’t easy, even for the most experienced detectorists. Why? Because challenging and diverse soil conditions can create a variety of complex ground signals that often confuse current gold-detecting technologies… as well as the detectorists interpreting them.

MinelabTM, the global leader in metal-detecting technology, repeatedly stakes its reputation on delivering solutions to the complex problems that get in the way of making more discoveries. Within the realm of gold hunting – from the tiniest flakes to the heaviest nuggets – the search just got faster, lighter, and simpler than ever, with the announcement of the all-new Minelab GPX 6000TM smart, all-gold detector, powered by new Geo-Sense-PITM technology.

GeoSense-PI (Pulse Induction) technology precisely analyzes gold signals while eliminating ground signals, allowing both beginning and expert nugget hunters to hear all gold pieces clearly. GeoSense-PI technology responds to ground signals with great clarity and precision, accurately isolating and reporting gold signals in the most difficult environments – even those once considered undetectable. It rapidly suppresses unwanted signals via three overlapping feedback systems for superfast detection of all gold pieces, placing anyone swinging the GPX 6000 completely in tune with the piece of Earth they’re hunting.

The new Minelab GPX 6000 is the fastest, lightest, and simplest way to find all types of gold in one machine. With automatic features and an easy-to-use interface, the GPX 6000 is ready to find gold from the moment it’s switched on. And because GeoSense-PI continuously adapts to changing soil conditions during use, there’s no need to adjust any settings; simply swing the detector and find gold.

Detect longer and remain more comfortable with premium ergonomics that contribute to a lighter swing. Weighing a feathery 2.1 kg (4.6 lbs), the new Minelab GPX 6000 incorporates serious features like carbon fiber shafts, a streamlined and intuitive control box, signature U Flex™ armrest, and a new Li-Ion quick-release rechargeable battery. Delivering up to eight hours of operation on a single charge, the new, lightweight battery design ensures the GPX 6000 won’t give up the hunt before you do.

The GPX 6000 includes a versatile 11″ Monoloop coil for an ideal balance between ground coverage and pinpointing small gold pieces, as well as a larger 14″ Double-D coil to detect gold accurately in the saltiest of environments. Both included coils are waterproof to 1 m/3 ft. For even more versatility, the new GPX 6000 is also compatible with Minelab’s GPX 17TM, 17” x 13” elliptical Monoloop coil (not included).

The Minelab GPX 6000’s rainproof LCD user interface is backlit for high-contrast viewing in a variety of conditions and allows easy control of user-selectable functions and modes.

Like other proven and trusted Minelab detectors, the new GPX 6000 is both durable and reliable. Tested in the harsh environments of gold fields worldwide, the GPX 6000 can withstand both extreme heat and heavy rains. Evidence of such comes in the form of a 3-year warranty backed by Minelab’s global support.

“Put simply, the new GPX 6000 turns everyone into a gold-detecting expert,” says Philip Beck, Minelab General Manager Engineering and Operations. “Minelab’s GeoSense-PI technology does the hard work of eliminating ground noise and highlighting targets, allowing the prospector to swing, listen, and find gold. We’ve also made sure that the GPX 6000 is a joy to use; it’s an incredibly lightweight gold detector that helps gold hunters spend more time pursuing their passion with less fatigue.”

The 6000 does what the 5000 can do depth wise on larger gold even slightly better, but what’s the point of providing it that way to the market when there is already something much better out there for

Minelab is basically just trying to create their own social media. That's what "detexperts" are, and that's why they are choosing their own no-name relic hunting channels to give exclusive looks into

I think these pictures sum up the GPX 6000 very concisely and also how I feel about those people who continue to suggest my input is biased or just marketing hype!! Tiny piece at stupid depth for

We can try to bribe JP. If everyone chips in $10 for the full specs, maybe he gets weak? 😉 Just kidding of course.

If it is out in other countries you should be able to find websites with prices. As far as I know, that is not the case. Just because some people leaked a peek at a couple demo units does not mean detectors are in stock and being sold.

I’d be surprised at any price decrease in a detector that I guess will be in short supply for a year at least. Africa will probably suck these things up like a vacuum cleaner.

Hi Steve.Do you know how many   people in Africa use a metal detector in   Africa for their lively hood. 

No. But these links and map should help. Look at Codan (Minelab) sales in Africa relative to everywhere else.

Scuttlebutt here says that the release for actual sale is still 6+ weeks away and price will be AU$8K!!!! 3.5 ounces of gold to pay it off.....however, performance is touted as 'astounding'. So theoretically, talented, professional and experienced operators should be able to achieve this without too much effort.

      Firstly my thanks to the guys at Coiltek.
      After dreadful weather here in central Victoria, and recovering from surgery, this morning dawned clear and sunny. Nice hot coffee and before the dew was off the ground I had the 6000 cranked up. Rudimentary reading of the manual the previous day saw the new detector humming sweetly after a short warm up. JP had been most helpful with a few tips on the local Finders forum, so it was quite easy to feel a certain amount of confidence as I ground balanced and paired up the headphones, which are surprisingly good compared to some of Minelab's previous offerings.
      There is a shallow but substantial lead running west to east across my fifty acre property which yielded a small amount of gold to my GPZ a few years back. I had gridded out the most promising area at the time, so it seemed obvious that this would be a good place to test my new toy. Not bothering to take a pick I headed off towards the east end of the block.
      Where on earth did these signals come from? A number were I am sure just shotgun pellets, but a few were at a reasonable depth as I tilted the coil to get some idea of just how deep. The more interesting signals I marked with boot scuffs and will check out within the next few days. I did not get to go back for my pick as a visitor turned up to have me check his detector.
      Initial impressions; Pretty damned good.

      Six Thousand dollars to put out on anything is a large investment to make .
       I just wonder how many of you have committed yourself to buying the 6000 already?
       I’ve had a long talk with one Minelab dealer and he has been told that the 6000 may slow in coming to the US because of the high volume going to other countries. That’s due to the gold rush is there not here.
       For you that live in gold country it may be a easy discussion but for those of us  that don’t we may have to think about it a while.
       I myself don’t have a bass boat parked in my drive with a big motor and trailer so this year I’m going to be good to me .
       I will have a 6000 as soon as I can get  my hot little hands on one.
       How about you is Santa going to come early?
       The Best!

      8 grammer found at 11 inches.  Nothing special as most detectors PIs should see something that big at that depth, but at least we get to see a big one finally found on film.

      I don't know how many 6000s are already 'in the system' as complete units in the box ready for use but the Covid count in Malaysia is forcing them to shut down some things.
      Be prepared for a long wait with the chip shortage.

      I’m wondering if the double D coil on the 6000 discriminates on metal like the 5000 does?

      I went out to what may be my last visit to my silver beach before opening day. It is a lot busier with preparations going on for Memorial Day, but If I am lucky, I may sneak in one more visit. I only need a couple more silvers to make 200. Lucky my wife went along as the heat was starting to get to me. It was nice to have someone be able to go back to the car and take some of the heavy targets and bring me back drinks. Hunted from around 8:30 to 3:30. I was toast after that. I started out again looking for low conductors and on my second hole I found the 10K Class ring. Hopefully, an easy return since the full name was engraved in the ring. Because of that I ended up digging a lot more iron than I wanted to. I was not planning on clearing areas of iron, but finding the ring made me change my plans. I did not get a lot of good targets this time around by clearing iron. Almost all of the silver found was not near any iron. Weather definitely played a part in how fast I dug targets. Full sun all day and hotter than they said it would be, probably around 70, with almost no breeze. So that beach still has good targets for me, but much harder to get in quantity. I guess I will be doing parks or cellar holes on my days off from now on. Time to put away the GPX and pull out the Equinox and learn some new tricks for the parks.
