If you're looking for super sensitive gold performance at a great price, then the Minelab Gold Monster 1000 is the metal detector you've been waiting for!
Up until The Gold Monster 1000 metal detector, there has always been a compromise between frequency and sensitivity when optimizing detector performance, because lower frequencies are more sensitive to larger gold nuggets and higher frequencies are more sensitive to smaller gold nuggets. Most detectors will find a very large nugget just beneath the surface, The Gold Monster 1000 operates at an intermediate 45kHz and a high-speed 24-bit signal processor giving it the perfect balance to find gold of all sizes with a great range of depth.

An 18 kHz detector will normally have a depth advantage on nuggets ≥ 1.0g over a basic mid-frequency detector, and a 71 kHz detector will have a depth advantage on nuggets ≤ 0.1g. The advanced GOLD MONSTER 1000 uses an intermediate 45 kHz frequency AND a high speed 24-bit signal processor. This primary combination greatly boosts sensitivity to gold beyond that of other single frequency VLF detectors over a wide range of nugget sizes, without introducing excess noise and false signals.
The GOLD MONSTER 1000 also has improved ferrous/non-ferrous discrimination and copes better with conductive (salty) soils than higher frequency detectors, making it the perfect choice to maximize your gold recovery!
GOLD MONSTER 1000 outperforms all other single frequency VLF gold detectors! Detector sensitivity comparisons are representative only. Actual performance will depend upon nugget size, detector settings and ground conditions.
"I found my first nugget within an hour; funnily enough it was in a detector scrape from previous excursions. All up I found many pieces of gold, the deepest being 3 inches in variable hot ground."
Jonathan Porter - Professional Gold Prospector, Australia- “I was able to find nine small nuggets (flakes) so easily that it was a bit surprising! Total weight of all nine is 7.8 grains. None were deep, maybe 3–4 cm at most. Just enough however to be just out of reach of the SDC and too small for the GPZ.”
