Minelab's ALL New GPX 5000
Metal Detector

More Features and Functions make the GPX 5000 the best gold detectors in the world!
Minelab GPX 5000 Metal Detectors
Serious detectorists know that GPX detectors find gold much deeper than ANY other detector, in ALL ground conditions!
  • NEW: Fine Gold Timing gives even more depth and sensitivity than Enhance — bring home more nuggets even from ground thought to be completely worked out!
  • NEW: Salt/Gold Timingis great for all nugget sizes in salty ground — outstanding at the beach!
  • NEW: Coin/Relic Timing is the deepest ever for benign ground conditions
  • NEW: Improved electronics for increased target sensitivity and ground balance performance (includes improved Enhance Timing)
  • 8 Soil/Timings is like having 8 detectors in 1, find more gold in ALL ground conditions.
  • 6 factory preset Search Modes for switch on and go simplicity
  • Automatic Ground Balance options to suit all conditions
  • Increased Rx Gain adjustment allowing more precise sensitivity control and better performance
  • Lightweight Li-ion Battery with inbuilt Speaker Booster capability
  • Two Search coils 11" Double-D coil plus 11" Monoloop coil as standard

GPX 5000 Sensitive Smooth
Sensitive Smooth
(GPX 5000 ONLY)

Is optimized for the most severe, heavily mineralized, variable and "hot rock" infested grounds, even when using a Monoloop coil.
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 Fine Gold
Fine Gold
(GPX 5000 ONLY)

Finds sub-gram gold nuggets that Enhance cannot. It is more sensitive and detects deeper than Enhance.
GPX 5000 Salt Gold
(GPX 5000 ONLY)

Provides the best signal response on small to large gold in salt saturated and mineralized ground conditions. It will operate very well on salt lakes and beaches.
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
Gives significantly greater depth on medium to large targets in areas with nil to very mild ground mineralization.

GPX 4800 Relic Finds

US field tester "When I first discovered the spot it was easy to dig fifty or more bullets in an afternoon but in time the count had dwindled down to 5 or 6 in an equal amount of time. My trip there with the GPX netted 78 bullets that the other top ranked detectors had missed."

UK field tester "...although this site had been cleared of all targets using the GPX-4000, I still managed to get lots of good strong responses from targets around 10 inches deep."

GPX 4800 Finds Gold Aus. field tester "I counted up all the small gold I have found in this site, so far it is 419 pieces for 210 grams ...and thats in well searched, extreme ground!"
