    Minelab has become the metal detector of choice for serious relic and treasure hunters. The Equinox 800 is a robust, fully submersible, lightweight detector offering Minelab’s Multi-IQ detection engine. Multi-IQ revolutionized metal detectors by combining the search capabilities of multiple detectors into one. Multi-IQ works by utilizing multiple detection frequencies at the same time to identify targets in salty, mineralized or trashy soil. No more carrying multiple detectors or wondering what you missed because your detector only focuses on one target type. The Equinox 800 is ideal for detecting on beaches, along river banks, lake shores or out in the field.

    The Equinox performs extremely well in all environments. The Equinox can be submerged in up to 10 feet of water and offers great detection even in salt water. Multi-IQ technology allows you to identify targets with confidence so you spend less time digging trash and more time digging treasure.

    High Plains Prospectors offers all the gear you need for your next metal detecting adventure including coil covers, search coils, carbon fiber shafts, finds bags, sand scoops, shovels, and books.

    Once you have an Equinox 800, you’ll find that old ground that has been searched for years can hold new treasures which no one has been able to detect before.

    The Minelab Equinox 800 redefines the all-purpose metal detector for serious detectorists. The Equinox is adaptable for all ground types and all target types. The Equinox is a formidable gold detector with a specific “gold mode” to help you find those elusive nuggets.

    User Interface:

    Equinox 800

    I recently received my Equinox 800 package. The staff was friendly and helpful guiding me in the right direction for what I was looking for. They went above and beyond to give me the package I was looking for. The Equinox 800 is a great detector and easy to use. It came with the 15" coil which works great on the beach.
    I would recommend High Plains Prospectors for all my needs.

    Thank you.

    Great service and inventory!

    New to metal detecting. Had done some research on what I wanted before going to High Plains Detectors. The owner, Josh, was great! He answered all my questions and was very helpful. I purchased the Minelab Equinox 800. Still learning, but having a great time! Very happy with this machine and the outstanding service I received! I highly recommend seeing Josh. The store had everything you could ever want or need.
