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

Having the promo emails and GPX6000 page up and running on the Minlab website does this mean the gag order is cancelled @Jonathan Porter

Nope and TBH I’m over the whole process.

What are powerlines? 😄

OK, It’s quiet and light, that’s a given. I really can't wait for the report, it will be good when we get those here from the real users, just don’t take it over my digs!  😉

What do you yanks call the overhead wires that carry electricity😏

Most of the desert here has open areas easily detected for a lack of those, but they certainly do create areas that foil a good hunt wherever they occur. I like everyone else must then tend to go where they arent for it, but if the 6000 is truly effective and quiet underneath  powerlines as shown, it will open areas up and we can truly ignore them, hence “what are powerlines?”

If the DD performs really well in salt then a ton of Northern (and other parts) Nevada will be a renewed playground. :cool:

Also, people in some renowned "hot ground" areas in AZ will discover to be true what I've been saying for years but cannot seem to convince anyone of: some of the gnarliest hot ground down there is actually just salty and not "hot". Sometimes a little of both.

A person could easily tell salty and boron laden hot ground just by learning the type of plants growing in an area. Saltbush or shadscale, and iodine bush are good indicators of this, as they are the most salt tolerant shrubs in the Great Basin desert.

So now my staff/I am supposed to train customers:

on their detector. 

on the tools we use.

on the rocks we look for.

on the elevations we like to stay at.

on the kinds of gold our detector hits best at.

on the sounds to ignore/investigate.

on the way to properly recover the target.

on the way to tell lead/hot rocks/cold stones from gold.

on the way to staying in the zone/proper mindset.

but now we have to teach them plants???

Wait a minute.  I could of sworn the GPX-6000 had a video showing "How to become an Expert, just turn it on".

They don't need dealers anymore.  Cabela's, Amazon, Sportsman's, Target, Dick's and Walmart can do that.

I might as well start looking for a new job....

Hey, Gerry do a deal with Klunker, I am sure you could get a partnership going helping him market his golden bird, plenty of downunder managers will be begging for employment once this rebadged Kiwi forces detectors into extinction.

      Hi all, just found on Gumtree Aust a Minelab GPX 6000 for sale. Only the box in the picture. Listed yesterday by Shawn Gib from Sydney. Asking $9000.
      Says your beating the que price is firm. Does anyone know who this is? I take it is a fake so be aware, or someone has one from a dealer? cheers sturt

      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?
