Minelab Gold Monster 1000 Metal Detector

The GOLD MONSTER 1000 Turns Beginners into Experts
with Fully Automatic Operation in an Easy-to-Use, High Performance Detector

GOLD MONSTER 1000 Outperforms All Other Single Frequency VLF Gold Detectors!

Monster Performance Graph

*Detector sensitivity comparisons are representative only. Actual performance will depend upon nugget size, detector settings and ground conditions.

Up until now, there has always been a compromise between frequency and sensitivity when optimizing detector performance, because lower frequencies are more sensitive to larger gold nuggets and higher frequencies are more sensitive to smaller gold nuggets.

When comparing detectors, the three curves in the diagram represent each detector’s ability to find small gold nuggets of a certain size, at a maximum possible depth. Most detectors will find a very large nugget just beneath the surface, however a detector’s sensitivity to gold determines how many smaller nuggets will ultimately be recovered in difficult (noisy) ground at greater depths.

An 18 kHz detector will normally have a depth advantage on nuggets ≥ 1.0g over a basic mid-frequency detector, and a 71 kHz detector will have a depth advantage on nuggets ≤ 0.1g. The advanced GOLD MONSTER 1000 uses an intermediate 45 kHz frequency AND a high speed 24-bit signal processor. This primary combination greatly boosts sensitivity to gold beyond that of other single frequency VLF detectors over a wide range of nugget sizes, without introducing excess noise and false signals.

The GOLD MONSTER 1000 also has improved ferrous/non-ferrous discrimination and copes better with conductive (salty) soils than higher frequency detectors, making it the perfect choice to maximize your gold recovery!

    Q: Can you submerge the coil at all or get wet without destroying the detector


    The coil on the Minelab Gold Monster can be submerged. When using the Gold Monster in or near water, just be very careful not to get the control box wet because it is not waterproof and the water will damage the machine.

    Q: How many feet does this detector go down


    Most people contact us to know the depth a metal detector can go. There are a lot of factors that play a part in depth. Most hobby detectors are VLF (very low frequency) and the depth depends on the soil conditions and the target size. When it comes to hobby detectors, we like to safely say the size of the coil is about how deep it will go. For example an 11 inch coil will typically pick up targets at 11 inches.
