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!
Twice the ADVENTURE ! Now get the best of both worlds by using the 7.5 kHz coil for all around detecting and treasure hunting, then quickly swap to the 18.75 kHz coil for finding those elusive small gold nuggets when prospecting.
Now you can detect for longer by using the rechargeable battery as your main power source, and keep the AA battery pack as a backup. You can also use the supplied headphones to cut out more environmental noise and pick up faint target signals of even more treasures.
CTX 3030 Vinyl Carry Bag
Carrying your CTX 3030 just got easier. We are debuting a new carry bag for the CTX 3030, which can also be used for convenient transport and storage for other Minelab Treasure and Gold metal detectors. The sturdy vinyl bag provides more height for the control box ( user interface ) to comfortability inside and provides a zipped storage compartment to safely keep other accessories.

September Winner’s Story
WONDERFUL WOT I have been detecting for a few years now and have always been a bit of a slowcoach. I often go out hunting with a mate and it is usual for him to cover many times more ground than me. Sometimes being slow and thorough is a good thing but for recently dropped modern coin hunting I wanted a faster way to cover more territory and reap the rewards. For these modern coin hunts I use my great old workhorse the Minelab X-TERRA 70 as it’s light, precise and a pleasure to swing.
I was very pleased when I learned that Coiltek had gained the rights (the first ever to do so) from Minelab to develop and market a new, bigger coil for the X-TERRA range of detectors and I got straight on the phone and put my order in. On the release day I was at their doorstep and purchased a new 15” 7.5Khz DD WOT coil.
I soon learned the benefits of this nice addition to my X-TERRA, it was sensitive, light for size and the TID numbers were spot on. Within a fortnight of part-time hunts it had paid for itself in coin finds. At the beach it helped me cover larger areas than I had ever done before in a typical 3 to 4 hour session and being waterproof I had no worries if I wanted to do some shallow wading.
However, I mainly I wanted to tell you about 5 park hunts over a month with this special coil. All were 3 to 4 hours long. The 1st hunt netted $68 in coin, and some silver jewellery. The 2nd was at the same park and I scored $107 and a 5gram 9ct gold ring. The 3rd was at a new park and I bagged $50 odd and a 4.9gram 22 ct gold earring. The 4th and 5th were at the another park and brought home $132 and $258 plus silver jewellery. $258 in coins had my coin bag straining at the straps with the weight but put a big grin on my face.

Find treasure anywhere with your pocket metal detector! Minelab Epic Find uses your iPhone camera to simulate real-life metal detection, with special audio cues to help you learn and distinguish among the varying tones and values of different treasures like Golden Nuggles, or mysterious relics like the Sheriff’s Remains. Unlock five popular metal detectors from Minelab, the industry’s world leader in metal detection technology, and hunt across four worldwide locations.
Detect Mode: Use your iPhone camera to scan the ground until you hear or see a change in tone.
Pinpoint Mode: With your potential targets detected, pinpoint them by running your finger over tiles and listening for tones. A Target ID (TID) on your detector interface will help you differentiate metals and strategize which digs to pursue.
Dig Mode: Tap on individual tiles to reveal finds. Be frugal and accurate with your taps; you will have limited battery life on your detector, as well as fluctuating patience levels.
Locations: Hunt for pirate treasure among the tropical islands of Florida, western relics in the desert mountains of Arizona, war relics in historical battle fields of Virginia, and gold along the western coast of Australia.
