Minelab GPX 5000 Gold Detector


This Minelab GPX 5000 has been a popular detector for years that is capable of fitting a range of different coils to enhance it even further. It is a high-performance detector that uses pulse induction and advanced digital processing to find gold in various types of ground, especially highly mineralized ground.

Some of the main features and benefits of the Minelab GPX 5000:

  • Uses MPS, DVT, and SETA technologies to provide high sensitivity, depth, and stability for finding gold in challenging ground conditions.
  • Eight soil timings that allow you to adjust the detector to suit different types of ground, such as salt, iron, and mineralized soils.
  • Six preset search modes that give you easy switch on and go detecting. You can also modify and rename the search modes according to your preferences.
  • Increased RX gain adjustment that lets you fine-tune the sensitivity level for optimum performance.
  • Automatic and manual ground balance options that make it easy to adapt to the ground conditions. It also has a quick-trac button that allows you to quickly reset the ground balance.
  • Has audio adjustments that help you maximize the target signals for your hearing ability. You can change the threshold, tone, audio type, signal peak, response, target volume, volume limit, and stabilizer.
  • Iron reject feature that allows you to eliminate unwanted iron targets from your search.
  • Motion control feature that allows you to match your sweep speed and optimize the target responses.
  • A tune (noise cancel) feature that allows you to minimize the electrical interference from other sources.
  • Backlight feature that allows you to read the LCD menu in any light condition. The backlight also has an adjustable timeout to help preserve battery power.
  • It comes with a charger, batteries, headphones, harness, bungee cord, and a carry bag. It also comes with two coils: an 11'' Double-D coil and a 15'' x 12'' monoloop coil.
