Minelab GPX 4800 Metal Detector

Great Gold Detectors - Super Beach Detectors - Deep Relic Detectors. A personal note from Kellyco Metal Detectors. For many years we had asked Minelab to produce what we called a "Super Beach" Metal Detector. When Minelab’s SD Gold Detectors were the "Big Guns" of gold hunting, we knew how well they worked on mineralized ground for gold, and thought that the SD’s would work equally as well on beaches, especially salt water (mineralized) beaches when searching for long lost valuable coins, rings, jewelry, and other treasures that sink deeper in sand the longer they remain there.

We asked a well known Detectorist, (NOT associated with Kellyco Metal Detectors) with many years experience metal detecting salt water beaches, and who personally has amassed a large collection of treasures found on the beach to take the SD to any beach and run as many tests as he wanted with the SD detector. Tests on dry sand, wet mineralized sand, dry conditions, wet conditions, low tide, high tide, etc. a real "shakeout". The report we received was little short of amazing! On the beach the SD detector found coins so deep they were oxidized by years of contact with minerals in salt water. Also hard to believe but the SD found jewelry including tiny gold "buttons" (10 to 12 inches deep in the sand) that women use to lock on to the pin that held earrings to their ears. Those very small buttons (or clips) are difficult to find even when they are close to the surface as most are as small as half the size of the finger nail on a ladies little finger, and that is really small!!!

The new GPX 4800 is more than we asked of Minelab. It is more powerful and sensitive than the older SD detectors with special features to make beach hunting more exciting for old beach hunters as well as beginners who truly want to find deeper more valuable treasures under the sands of any salt water beach! Coil is not submersible.

P.S. The GPX 4800 also seems to be a winning detector for Relic hunters having greater ability to go deeper to locate relics and artifacts. Field tests in areas that were previously well searched by other detector models have recovered not just a few "overlooked" targets, but large amounts of targets NOT found by other well known metal detectors.

GPX 4800 Powerful, Deep Seeking, 3 Detectors-in-One, & Easy To Use!
Found More in One Week Than I Found All Last Year!

A recent article by Kevin Hoagland, Minelab’s Director of Dealer Development, made some observations regarding Minelab’s GPX 4800 after hearing almost daily from relic hunters across the country about amazing finds being made, many in areas that were previously hunted out. One new 4800 user who Kevin spoke to said “I am not happy, I am ECSTATIC! I have found more in the last week than I have found in the last year! It is truly like my spot has never been hunted before”. Kevin goes on to say, “relic hunters are seeing finds coming out of the South and East. Areas in Virginia seem to be buzzing about the GPX 4800 as the “must have detector” while we at Kellyco have seen a new interest all across the country from Gold Hunters out west, Relic Hunters in the east and south, to Beach Hunters on the east coast, Florida, Texas and California!

Simple to Use

When asked, "After I get the GPX 4800 is it hard to use?" Kevin answered “SIMPLICITY is the word to use!” The new GPX Series of detectors are as simple to use as the manual makes it out to be.

GPX 4800 is a Triple Threat Detector

Super Gold Detector, Super Beach Detector, and a Great Relic / Artifact Detector

GPX 4800 Sensitive Smooth
(GPX 4800 ONLY)

Great for beach hunting coins, rings, jewelry, and other treasures. Finds large nuggets in salt affected and mineralized ground.

GPX 5000 Enhance
Enhance (Improved)

Runs quietly in most heavily mineralized, variable and "hot rock" infested grounds using a Monoloop coil. It is more sensitive and detects deeper than Sensitive Smooth but can be slightly more affected by severe ground mineralization.

GPX 5000 Normal Mode

Gives great performance on a wide range of soil conditions, and target sizes. It is a good default timing to assess a new area.

GPX 5000 Sensitive Extra
Sensitive Extra

Provides the best signal response on small gold in mild to medium ground mineralization.

GPX 5000 Sharp Mode

Finds a good variety of target sizes in mildly mineralized ground. Similar but more powerful than Normal. It is capable of an improvement in depth, but is also more susceptible to interference and ground noise.

GPX 5000 Coin and Relic
Coin / Relic Detecting

Gives significantly greater depth on medium to large targets in areas with zero to very mild ground mineralization.

    I am 51, an economist by profession and a treasure hunter by passion.
    Treasure hunting is a fascinating domain.

    About 10 years ago, I joined a group of treasure hunters by chance, and since then, this passion has been continuously growing. At that moment, I came in contact with the basic notions used in this field, e.g. treasure, a term with many meanings, referring in this case to gold and silver objects.

    I found out that throughout time various persons, from statesmen and organizations to common people, had hidden certain valuable goods which for several reasons remained hidden and forgotten, only to be later discovered as a result of archaeological surveys, by chance, or, in most cases, as a result of treasure hunting activities.

    My first steps as a treasure hunter were difficult, with many failures and many holes dug for nothing, so I decided it was a far more complex business than I first thought and that I needed information and research, so I started to read and become informed.

    My conclusions are that in treasure hunting there are 3 basic steps to follow:
    1. Researching historical sources and local tales about hidden treasures and family heirlooms, in order to establish the probability of their existence, their general location, and how big they should be.
    2. Establishing the perimeter where the treasure is most likely to be located. In this stage, paranormal searching methods may be used: clairvoyance, induced telepathy, radiestesy. So, in 1995 I took radiestesy lessons, and by analyzing my failures, constant training and progress, I am confident that I can tell if there is a treasure in the area.
    3. Pinpointing the exact location of the treasure, by using a metal detector.

    When I started looking for a good metal detector I came across Kellyco's web site. I liked this site because it's accessible, its design and management are first-rate, it has the widest range of products available, the prices are the best that I could find, and you

    When I first started using my Minelab GTPX-4000 metal detector, I relied more on the meter than the different tones it was sending out. As time went on and my eyesight started to fade I started paying more attention to the different tones it was sending out.

    After mastering all the different tones my machine was sending I started to realize that even though the meter was extremely accurate the engineers had made it to work at it's peak using both visual and audio. together this machine was literally a turn on and go machine perfect for the newbie. I think that treasure hunting has always been in my blood when metal detectors first came out my wife and I were still newlyweds and like most newly weds we didn't have much money to spend so three or four hundred dollars to buy a metal detector was out of the question at least for a couple years.

    By the time we had saved up enough money to buy a machine they had improved drastically. If you wanted to you could crank up the discrimination to knock out all signals by slowly reducing the discrimination you would start picking up more and more metal. Bottle caps and pull tabs would be the first thing you would pick up as you turned down the discrimination. The lower you went the more trash you would pick up. On most machines if you are using discrimination you are going to pass over nickels and gold. that are in once an area has been cleaned out switch to all metal this takes a lot of time but I have a lot of older coins and gold rings this way

    After using the Minelab Eureka Gold for several years, and having good success in fields, parks and schools, but limited success in the popular gold fields of Arizona, I started thinking about upgrading to a better gold detector.

    The week before Thanksgiving my wife and I were invited to Australia the following year for a wedding. Not wanting to give into going to a wedding too easily I decided that in order to go I would need to purchase a new detector. My wife agreed and I made some calls and ordered the Minelab GPX 4000. It arrived the day after a light snow, so I spent the next day or two going over the manual and some DVD information that I had purchased at the same time.

    Several weeks later, after familiarizing myself somewhat with the controls and functions, I headed for Arizona to meet with some friends.

    I arrived there fairly early and set up camp as quickly as possible, wanting to play with the GPX before the others arrived.

    The first thing that I noticed was the sensitivity of the machine. Old miners and and campers had left a large amount of old cans, nails and other metallic junk laying around. The GPX was screaming every time I came near any debris left on the surface.

    I decided to walk a little ways away and found an area to work that was not too trashy.

    Within 30 minutes I got a signal that was just a little fainter than the surface junk had been giving me. I did not expect anything more than some more trash but after digging down about eight inches I hit upon a small quartz rock that sent the GPX screaming, Clearing off the mud and dirt, gold bits started appearing all over the rock.

    Within thirty minutes of starting out, I found my first nugget. This was in a place that has seen hundreds, if not thousands, of detectorists comb through the same desert area.

    This may not be a very technical review, but regardless of the bells and whistles, if you can't find what you are looking for it doesn't do you any good.
