Minelab Gold Monster 1000
Minelab is the go-to brand to get the best gold metal detector. Their GPZ and GPX series host a variety of models suited for beginners to pros. Here’s what you need to know about the Minelab Gold Monster 1000
- 45kHz VLF
- 5inch/10inch DD search coil
- Automatic ground balance
- Waterproof coil
The Minelab Gold Monster is perfect for finding the smallest of gold flakes and nuggets in areas with a lot of trash, thanks to its high VLF frequency. It offers two search modes, all-metal, and gold, and comes with an automatic ground balance to adjust to new locations as you move.
Moreover, the waterproof DD search coils allow for better depth when hunting in highly mineralized soil. This makes up for the VLF frequency that doesn’t work as well with mineralization.
