  1. 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. https://www.minelab.com/usa/metal-detectors/gpx-6000 Minelab GPX 6000 Data & Reviews Minelab GPX 6000 Accessories and Spare Parts Minelab GPX 6000 Owner’s Manual
  2. 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?

  4. Nenad speaks! https://www.prospectingaustralia.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=604239#p604239 and the first cover kit for the 6000: https://www.prospectingaustralia.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?id=36990 Reports coming in from various Australian users, seems the detector does find gold. Now if U.S. dealers could start making deliveries. I have to think that with machines delivered first in Africa, and now in Australia.... any day now?

  5. 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."
  6. 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.
  7. I had a chance to meet up with Jim in ma for a beach hunt. Always nice to detect with a fellow forum member. 🙂 Hit me favorite beach for about 6 hours and had to adjust my thinking, since the bulldozers had mostly buried my silver area. Thanks Guys! 😡 So, I moved over to the clad section to at least get to dig some coins. The ratio of silver to clad leans heavily towards the clad. But there was some silver to be found, including the big silver. 71 coins in all (including silvers). Oddly enough, there was not a single zinc to ruin my day. ❤️ Average depth of targets was about 14”. Some differe

  9. 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.

  10. Why don't most of these detectors perform too great on 10 and 100 gram nuggets? This doesn't make much sense to me, I thought that on nuggets this size they'd be real screamers..
  11. So, I decided to try another beach to see if the conditions were the same to find silver. I spent about 2 hours there before I could not stand it anymore. For such an affluent town, the have the dirtiest beach I have ever detected on. The amount of junk targets and iron were overwhelming. I could not swing without hitting multiple targets. I got a bit of clad, and an 8-gauge shotgun shell casing, so I flew out of there. 🙄 The drive back to my favorite beach was now the goal to save the day. I wandered around for a bit with no luck, so back to the same area where I did good before. I expanded
  12. Went out to 2 different beaches for a mix of GPX and AQ hunting. Tony repaired my headphones for the AQ and also made me a spare set , along with 2 short cables, so I could zip tie the short cable to the machine, and so I would not break the M8 connector. The short cable also converts the M8 to an M12, a more robust connector going to the headphones. So, for the first AQ hunt in a while, I chose my “spot” to see if I could find any low conductors where the GPX had previously run the 18” DD coil. I did not find any coins in that area, but did find little bits of melted copper and lead. So, I ve

  17. I still love my 4500, but I'll be the first to admit that the GPZ7000 gets the most swing time these days. However, nearly every time I pull out the 4500, it rewards me.

  19. I did not think I would get a chance to get out this week, but since yesterday opened up for me, I decided to hit my favorite spot. I had a couple of ideas on how I would work this same area, but in reality, it required a bit of trial and error to get these results. It was supposed to rain part of the day, so I figured I would use the Equinox for the morning. I wanted to get as close to the iron areas as possible, so I decided on the 6” coil. If the rain stopped, I would use the GPX with the 18” DD coil to get those deep dimes, in the other section of this spot. It worked, but I had to make a
  20. Hello all. I’m new to this forum and am seeking advice on my detector. I recently acquired my dads gpx5000. It’s a big step up from my ML xterra 705. He gave me 2 commander coils. An 11” mono and an 11” DD as well as a coiltek 12x18 goldstalker mono. Previous to this, I was interested in the GM1000 because of its ability with smaller gold. My question is can I make this gpx as good or better for small gold as the GM1000 by using a smaller coil. As you can tell I’m relatively new to this. Lol Thank you Steve

  22. 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??
  23. So, I had a delayed start for yesterdays hunt. Between turning the clocks forward, and the cold temps, I did not make it to the beach until around 10 AM. It would have been 17 degrees out with a 20 MPH NNW wind, but lucky for me it warmed up to 23 degrees by the time I got there. 🥶 I did have a big cement wall that I was planning on hunting next to, using it as a wind shield - it worked well. This is also the wall that I can not get closer than 5 feet from, or my GPX goes nuts from the iron inside of it. So, I had a plan. Since there are so many targets in this area that are exposed, and I as
