GOLD MONSTER 1000 outperforms all other single frequency VLF gold detectors!

A graph comparing the Gold Monster 1000's capabilities compares to other gold detectors *Detector sensitivity comparisons are representative only. Actual performance will depend upon nugget size, detector settings and ground conditions.

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!

    Cheap way to start your gold prospecting

    Considering it’s price, I think this is a handy detector. You can move around and get in to spaces that other ones can’t due to its size. Very easy to use so it’s great for a beginner like myself. I have only been out once to the gold areas but I have found a few targets with it which I never thought possible with a detector of this price. Battery lasted all day, used approximately 6hrs and still had charge left. I didn’t find gold but neither did my partner with a $8000 dollar detector. Very happy so far.

    Pros: Easy to use, impressive depth ability considering its price on certain grounds, battery lasted all day and you have a back up pack to put AAs in just in case. Found several items eg lead, brass,foil.
    Cons: It is a small unit with a small coil but it would be better if it was able to fold. You can twist it apart to make smaller for easier travel though.

    Easy to get started in detecting

    The Gold Monster is easy to get started detecting with. Have only manage a few hours use so far. Haven’t found gold but did uncover a penny token from 1858.

    Pros: Easy to start detecting with. Well balanced and comfortable.
    Cons: No real cons discovered yet.
