Description

What is the performance of the GPX 6000? How does it compare to other Minelab gold detectors?

Short answer:

The GPX 6000 is our best performer on the more plentiful smaller nuggets even in highly mineralised or variable ground. It still retains excellent depth, just behind the GPZ 7000 on larger, deeper nuggets and importantly with GeoSense-PI to maximise the detector’s performance, everyone is an easy-expert.

Long answer:

The GPX 6000 is our best performer on the more plentiful smaller nuggets, going deeper than the Gold Monster 1000, SDC 2300 and GPZ 7000 which are noted for their small gold performance. These everyday nuggets are detected easily, even in highly mineralised or variable ground. The GPX 6000 however isn’t only a small gold only machine. It also has excellent depth on larger, deeper nuggets though not as deep as the GPZ 7000. More importantly the GeoSense-PI technology makes this performance easier to access more quickly for all prospectors.
