Gold Fever – Minelab changes people’s fortunes!

This past week I was privileged to travel to the Minelab Gold Detector Training session and spend time with Minelab trainers and industry experts in Las Vegas Nevada. It was a fantastic opportunity to train not only with Minelab Engineers and Trainers,  but also with experienced detectorists in the Gold Basin of Arizona, near Lake Meade and the Nevada border.
I spent 3 days in a classroom setting going over the technical and user aspects of each machine, the settings for each soil condition and intricacies of each machine that make Minelab the World’s Best Metal Detectors and the Minelab GPX-5000 simply the best gold detector in the world. On the fourth day a large group of us headed into the Arizona Gold basin to gain practical experience and hunt for gold.

In the photo below I am using the Minelab Eureka Gold, a detector I found very manageable and easy to use.  The ground showed low mineralisation so I had enabled the receive coil boost and the 60 kHz setting to ensure I capture small nuggets that many other machines simply miss.



I am now a Minelab Certified Trainer on the X-TERRA 705 Gold, Eureka Gold and the best gold machine in the world, the Minelab GPX 5000 and I am pleased to say that we did find some gold!

Radioworld aims to give its customers the best possible chance of success with their new Gold Detector purchase . Success comes from knowing the detector, ground conditions and settings,  as well as knowing where to look.

This was an amazing experience and I feel enriched for experiencing it. Minelab changes people’s fortunes!
