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.

Minelab USA had not said anything to us in the last couple weeks, but it could be because nobody at Minelab Australia has told them anything?

We just finished our 1st training at Rye Patch, NV. and the customers on the list for training on their GPX-6000 had to roll back to the coming up June session.  I would hope my Staff and I will be able to put some time on the GPX-6000's before we train in June?

Either way, I am excited to get the GPX-6000 out there and finding a few more ounces of gold this year.

Training for what, Gerry? That thing is supposed to point you to the gold, right?😉

It will be nice to hear about how that session with the 6000’s goes for you guys, looking forwards to your review from the field!

Well Gerry, Minelab themselves appear to know very little. 

I have mailed them several times over several weeks for updates on ETA and finally got a reply today saying words to the effect 'We aren't sure, some dealers in Aus may have them soon'

There has been more useful info in this forum than from Minelab.

Fortunately I have JP as a local supplier and know I will be looked after.

We had a few units arrive late this afternoon, with more hopefully on the way. 🙂

      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.
