What Will You Find?

Our Lived Completely Changed

My name is Mohamed Khalif and my family lives Moyale, Kenya.

We did buy a Minelab GPX 5000 and from the day we got my detector, it only took 2 weeks to find more than 550 grams of gold. We just couldn't believe that it could be so easy to use and find so much gold with a GPX 5000, even my father is using the detector to find gold.

Here in Moyale, Kenya we now have a very big rush for gold and people are still out finding gold in the remote areas.

We thank God and Minelab for the opportunity's that we now have been given.
