  1. https://codan.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/FINAL-INVESTOR-PRESENTATION-20-Aug-20.pdf Metal detector sales up 30% (Recreational 11%, Gold Prospecting 42%) - Africa is the largest market by far (due to gold prospecting detectors) - New gold prospecting model coming GPX 6000 - X-Terra and Safari discontinued - Thirty million invested in Engineering / R&D. No wonder the competition can't keep up! I found it interesting that even with the new Vanquish and Equinox, sales growth is heavily weighted to the gold prospecting models, illust
  2. I just received this email! Important Information from White's Electronics June 18, 2020 To our valued White's Dealers- This is a very difficult message to write, but the time has come for retirement from White's Electronics. We are suspending manufacturing operations at our Sweet Home facility while we re-evaluate the future of the company. It is never easy to make these decisions, however, we are faced with the reality of intense competition in the industry and ongoing counte
  3. As promised, here it is guys:http://noktadetectors.com/index.asp?g=naming-contest
  4. Whites Electronics stop operation in June of this year. Based on conversations with representatives, Whites is looking for a buyer and contemplating other options. For all practical purposes, they are currently not in business. Visiting White's web site, you will notice they have nothing in stock. I seriously doubt they will not debut any new detectors in the near future. It breaks my heart. I think most of us in the detecting hobby saw this coming. I don't understand why White's didn't. They let themselves get woefully behind the 8 ball in the gold detecting arena. The GMT is still there be
  5. I see the Minelab GPX 4500 is being discontinued. If the price goes down is it worth it to pick one up or has what replaced it that much better? Perhaps a premium will now be asked for the remaining new GPX 4500's? Is now the time to buy??
  6. I found a dealer supplier today who still has several New Whites in stock if anyone is looking for one. He has several accessories left as well. It is Whites of the Great Lakes if anyone is needing anything. Was told by them that they were the biggest Whites Distributor and when they got wind Whites was closing they pretty much bought out all they had. I do know they are out of the D2 coil. I needed an 8AA battery pack and that is how I found out about them from the old Whites of the mid south I used to deal with. Anyways, I hope no one minds me sharing this.

  8. Happy and Fortuitous Hunting!
  9. White’s maintained their own forum at http://forums.whiteselectronics.com/ In another sign that the company is not being revived, the forum has now been suspended. Findmall also killed off all their White’s forums due to non-sponsorship. Rest assured that since this is not a company funded or sponsored forum, it will not be going away. If anything I will pay extra attention to trying to lend aid and support to White’s owners via this website.
  10. I just saw an ad on a Metal Detector Store site that said 'Buy a gift card and save 10%! Want to treat yourself? Use the gift card today — it's like saving 10% on your next purchase!' The dealers on this forum should know the 'push ads' out and about. Mitchel
  11. I had been a multi-line dealer since 2005. I moved back to Oregon in 2011 and continued to do so. 75% of the people in my Prospecting club owned Metal Detectors. Of those, at least 75% were White’s. I was living and selling in White’s Country! As a result, I concentrated on that brand. I didn’t give up my other dealerships. I just didn’t order unless somebody needed something. I stocked White’s only. Garrett is a family owned US company with a reputation of excellent Customer Service. Not only that, they’re solid financially. I recently learned that they purchase all the parts i
  12. I never bought here but they looked like a good place to do so. I saw some good buys there, and listing was free. But now they are gone? Seems to be happening a lot in metal detector land these days. http://www.treasureclassifieds.com/
  13. Things look to be over for White’s, as dealers and distributors either liquidate stock, or in the case of some dealers, shut down permanently. White’s has been lining up service options for their customers. These are the latest officially designated places to have warranty work and service done. I have added them to the service thread pinned at top of page.

  14. It's been 8 days since I emailed Nokta. I gave them all the info on the problem and the serial number of my coil. Not a peep or response!!! about my coil issue. I never have not had acompany get back to you in 3 days, let alone 8. I guess we live in a throw away society, They make a great machine, But I do not need this poor service, Even the Georgia service center won't answer multiple phone calls. (wondering if its closed down) In the future I won't bother with the warranty, I'll just go purchase another item ( cheaper and faster that way, also less headaches). Luckily I can afford to do so,
  15. Years ago I thought of a competition of sorts of getting metal detectorists together to go through a 'course' which would be akin to a test garden. BYO detector and see who could 'tell' what was and what wasn't at each stop on the course. This is nothing like that. haha https://minelabmetaldetectors.cmail19.com/t/ViewEmail/j/909B652EEB5D9FC52540EF23F30FEDED/DB0BCE1DBD546B193FEC1D8A50AFD3BD
  16. I tried to call the Sweet Home Oregeon facility. All that happrned was just a recording that kept on replaying over and over. So being an ex Whites dealer I decided to try Whites of the Mid South. Dwight the owner helped me set up my little shop when I got going. Anyways they told me they only had a few units left and they did have a lot of accessories left. I chatted a bit about how sad it was that Whites were no longer. Dwight seems to think the covid mess going on is part to blame. I guess it is possible. I asked them if they were going to pick up another brand and keep o
  17. Steve Howard took care of my warranty issue...I now have a new 6 x 10 coil. I had told Steve I'd buy the old one back. I thought I could cut the mounting ears off, and make a new top, including new ears, and bridge over the spot causing the falsing, and I'd rather have that than no backup at all, and no new products since they were closing. He sent me back the old one at no charge! I also needed the handle and shaft for a GM2 I was trying to buy, and he sent me a the handle and travel shaft at a discounted price! Obviously, the old culture at Whites continues, even though they're going to clos
  18. Ok boys and girls https://omnitron.pl is new dealer of Deeptech products. If you need something just let me know. Thank you.
  19. Coming soon? Not just one, but a series? https://search.ipaustralia.gov.au/trademarks/search/view/2076039?q=minelab Minelab SilverSaver metal detector series
  20. Jin posted this back in April.... The chart claims “5 key products” under development for FY21. We are in Minelab FY2021 right now... it began in July. Minelab has also been registering trademarks since February. Four new ones so far: MF5 Silversaver Series Geo Sense-PI GPX 6000 ????? That leaves just one going missing.
  21. Over on Bill Southern Forum Nuggetshooter. He said he’s off today to Chandler for the above conference and will be back Tuesday knowing more than when he left. So if anyone see’s something posted late Tuesday or the next on Bill’s forum do let us know here. Chuck
  22. Just a reminder. Minelab offers a 15% discount on any Minelab metal detector from the MAP (minimum advertised price) to U.S. active or honorably discharged members of the military. Proof of past or active service is required and must be verified by providing a copy of a DD 214 or Military ID to qualify. The discount applies only to a metal detector purchase - parts and accessories do not qualify. With discount the $799 Gold Monster 1000 is only $679.15. The Minelab GPZ 7000, normally $7999, ends up being $6799.15, a savings of $1199.85
  23. Hello all, Just an update on my 800 that was sent out to ML on July 6th! Just received shipping info for today's shipment, via USPS 2 Day priority mail! Pretty quick turnaround, considering Covid issues!! I had sent in all electronic parts for testing!! And a Repair Center Email below!!👍👍
  24. I just completed a survey that was sent to me via a link in my email. Minelab said it was going to produce informative videos and it asked what kind I would like to see.

  25. An intrepid forum member passed this along. Interesting, as the name does not sound “recreational” to me, more like something for geologists or exploration companies? https://search.ipaustralia.gov.au/trademarks/search/view/2104206?q=minelab
