The Minelab GOLD MONSTER 1000 features fully automatic operation and comes with a choice of coils, battery options and shaft configurations. If you're looking for super sensitive gold performance at a great price, then this is the detector you've been waiting for!

Up until now, there has always been a compromise between frequency and sensitivity when optimising detector performance, because lower frequencies are more sensitive to larger gold nuggets and higher frequencies are more sensitive to smaller gold nuggets.

When comparing detectors, the three curves in the diagram represent each detector’s ability to find small gold nuggets of a certain size, at a maximum possible depth. Most detectors will find a very large nugget just beneath the surface, however a detector’s sensitivity to gold determines how many smaller nuggets will ultimately be recovered in difficult (noisy) ground at greater depths.

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 maximise your gold recovery!


Adjustments and Settings

This metal detector has a fully automatic search mode. What this means is that it will have less adjustments than many other gold detectors on the market. In fact, the design of the automatic search is in direct response to African prospectors in a number of countries who feel that too many buttons for customizing your metal detector are a big hindrance when metal detecting.

The automatic search mode makes it easy for anyone to use the metal detector. For example, the ground balancing is automatic which eliminates the need for ground balancing button. Sensitivity adjustment and noise canceling are also automatic which makes it easy for use in any condition.

The Gold Monster 1000 is adjustable and suitable for all types of difficult terrain. 

The Gold Monster has waterproof coils for safe detecting of shallow-water gold nuggets.


VLF technology for gold

The Minelab Gold Monster 1000 is built to use the super sensitive VLF technology. It operates at 45 kHz, which should be a nice balance between sensitivity to small gold and stability in mineralized ground. Ideally it will be possible to detect even the smallest gold nuggets.

Although sensitivity is automatically adjusted depending on the mineralization of where you are detecting, you still can adjust it manually to suit your specific needs.

This graph explains how the 45 kHz operating frequency of the Gold Monster 1000 is ideal for typical nugget hunting situations.

Awesome Review by Jim

This is an incredible detector that is very simple to use for a beginner with the automatic features. Takes a little more practice in understanding the manual sensitivities, but is definitely top notch with a rechargeable pack that last a long time. My friend has several high end model detectors and was very impressed by the how well this one functions. Highly recommend for newbies like myself. (Posted on 9/18/2018)
