Hello All,

This weekend a partner and I conducted field instructions for two new Minelab GPX-5000 customers. One customer was from the Phoenix area, other drove down from Lake Havasu City. After going over the detector and settings, both customers were out detecting. At the end of the day, Marvin from the Phoenix area ended up with two nuggets shown below. Chip & his wife didn't get lucky, but they had a great time. Thank you both for your business. Don't hesitate to get a hold of me if you have any questions.

Sunday, my partner and I hit a new area not too far away. Within a few hours I scored 5 small nuggets with the Minelab GPX-5000. The ground was pretty hot, but managed to run Sensitive/Extra with Deep audio in this area. Check out the nuggets below.

Overall it was a great weekend. The weather Sunday was awesome!

Chip it was a pleasure meeting you! Was a fun day out in the desert, and Rob, Dennis and Scott were fantastic hosts. Sorry for the delay in posting, it's been crazy around here. Those two nuggets were at the very last minutes of the day, and I can thank Rob and his patience (and determination) for that. The 5000 is a great machine, and it will definitely find you gold in any gold field. It is all about learning about where to find it, and learning to love digging the targets that 'aint'. Talking to Rob and Dennis made me into a 'wanna-be' amateur geologist (schists, precambrian metamorphawha??? lol - time to read!), and if anything - a spark that starts a flame in the ole noodle for knowledge is worth more than any gold nugget of any size. Thanks guys!

If you want to buy a detector from a shop with rock solid integriy and an extreme (and much appreciated) focus on customer service, I highly encourage anyone in the market for a Minelab to give Rob a call. Not only glad to be a customer, but also a friend.

Happy hunting!

Hey Guys,

I appreciate your comments. Like I have always stated before, I treat customers like I would like to be treated if I was buying any product.

Thanks for all your business, we gladly appreciate it along with your friendship.

Take care,
