Gold Monster 1000 Gold Metal Detector by Minelab with Free Gifts

Strike Gold with the Minelab Gold Monster 1000!

It is a simple-to-use high-performance gold metal detector that features fully automatic operation and comes with a choice of two coils, battery options, and shaft configurations. 

If you're looking for outstanding performance at a great price you have found your match. This detector will be your best super-sensitive companion when seeking and unearthing your next gold stash! 

This gold metal detector is a state-of-the-art detecting machine that optimizes its performance with lower frequencies being more sensitive to larger gold nuggets and higher frequencies being more sensitive to smaller gold nuggets. So you get the best of both worlds!

An 18 kHz detector will normally have a depth advantage on nuggets greater than 1.0g over a basic mid-frequency detector, and a 71 kHz detector will have a depth advantage on nuggets less than 0.1g.

This advanced machine 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 Minelab Gold Monster Metal Detector 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 discovery!

The Gold Monster is highly recommended for - Coin Hunting, Jewelry Hunting, Relic Hunting, Cache Hunting, Prospecting, Ghost Town Hunting, Competition Events, and Beach/Fresh Water Hunting.

            • A phone number is required by the freight company so a delivery appointment can be made.  
            • Failure to provide this at the time of order may cause a delay in delivery as freight items will not be delivered without an appointment.   
            • A delay in delivery may also cause additional storage fees to accrue that will need paid prior to delivery.
        • Note to international customers: We can ship worldwide where allowed by the Manufacturer. You are responsible for any and all duties or taxes that may apply. (see details below)
          • Customs, Duties, and Taxes: Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to customs brokerage fees, import duties, and taxes after the shipment reaches the destination country. Additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient because we have no control over these government-imposed charges and cannot determine what they may be. Customs policies vary greatly among countries. Therefore, we cannot, and will not, offer advice about taxes in your country. We report the amount of the sale on the Customs form. Please do not ask us to claim less than the actual purchase amount. It is the customers responsibility to know the legality of the metal detectors ordered in their country. Do not order items that are illegal to import into your country. Laws are different in every country and we cannot keep up with them all. It is your responsibility to check with your Customs office to see if your country permits the shipment of our metal detectors to your country.
          • As the buyer, it is your responsibility to find out that information before you order. Please contact your local customs office for information.
          • To avoid a delay in receiving your order from customs, consider the following:
          • Provide us with a phone number where you can be reached by customs when your metal detector arrives. This phone number will be listed on the commercial invoice so customs can reach you to clear your order.
          • Please do not refuse a shipment or ignore requests from carriers regarding duty and/or tax liability charges. Be aware that most carriers will hold a shipment for 5 days after arrival in your country before they return it to the sender.
          • We do not refund original shipping charges for goods that are refused for delivery at customs.
          • We will deduct all additional fees resulting from refused international shipments from your refund.
          • If we are charged for YOUR taxes and duties on the shipment or incur any penalty or lawsuit related to your order or shipment, we will post the charge to your credit card.
          • If the package is seized by Customs for any reason and we do not receive the package back, we will NOT issue you a refund since, obviously, local laws and regulations determine the fate of the package. If we do receive the package back after being seized, you are still responsible for the shipping charges and any other fees plus penalties incurred.
          • We ship via UPS and Fedex for most products, USPS for small parts and accessories, and freight for large products.

          Cancellations & Refunds:

          • All orders canceled after we have charged you are subject to an administration fee equal to $45, this is to cover the cost we have to pay to our payment processor. If you order an OKM product and cancel after 24 hours there is a 15% admin fee if it has not shipped and a 25% restocking fee if it has shipped. This is a fee that covers administrative and shipment fees. 
          • If your item is on backorder and you accept the backorder, we will hold your payment until the metal detector ships. If you decide to cancel before a backorder arrives and is processed for shipping, we will not charge a fee. 
          • If you order has shipped, you (the buyer) will be responsible for actual return shipping charges. Refunds will only be issued to the original credit card that you use when placing your order.

          Backorders:

          • From time to time, a product may run out of stock at our warehouse and the website wasn't updated when you placed your order. In that case, we will send you an email right after you place your order notifying you of the backorder, what the expected time for arrival is, and what substitutes are available in case you are interested in getting a metal detector sooner.
          • The expected arrival time may change due to unforeseen circumstances like a shipment getting held up at the port upon arrival or the factory missing a certain part needed to complete the manufacturing process.

          • Notify Modern Metal Detectors immediately.

          Minelab Gold Monster 1000 Gold Metal Detector with Free Gifts?

          Minelab Gold Monster 1000 Gold Metal Detector is the ultimate detector for the beginner prospecting for gold. I used a Fisher Gold Bug 2 for 27 years and swore that I would never buy a detector that could out preform it. I WAS WRONG. The feature that out preforms, stands out and proves to outshine the Gold Bug 2 is the quick balance. No more guessing if I need to ground balance manually, I have the Minelab Gold Monster 1000 do that for me. I give myself peace of mind by just pumping the coil several times and I am good to go. No more dialing knobs just to go a short distance and then rebalance. The 45 kHz give more range for more than just flakes, it gives me larger nugget's at better depth's. Minelab Gold Monster 1000 Gold Metal Detector with Free Gifts package is an incredible deal and the extras are more than what is needed to start prospecting. It is like getting a beginner's kit and and automatic upgrade to immediate level of prospecting. Getting this machine is a decision you will never regret. In regards to customer service. Daniel will and always will support you. Daniel knows how important customer support is, and you will always want to be his customer for life. Modern Metal Detector is a rare business these days, in which you get customer service, an insane deal and support.

          QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

          Ask a Question
          • How much deeper this machine can detect gold from out ground? Thanks

             
            This question we hear a lot and it is an important one. The short answer is that there are many variables that can affect the depth of metal is detected. VLF (very low frequency) hobby detectors can detect various depths depending on the ground conditions and target size. However, it is known that the size of the coil is usually how deep it will detect. For example, if you have got an 10-inch coil, it will typically detect at a depth of 10 inches.

             

          • I need sknow the dig.la profundidad a puede detectar el Oro ?

             
            Este detector de metales puede encontrar oro a una profundidad de hasta 10 pulgadas bajo tierra.

          • How heavy is the gold monster?

            Detector Weight (with 10x6" coil) : 2.94 lbs (1.33kgs) (excluding battery)

          • Hello. I am interested in purchasing a new detector. I was looking for either the Gold monster or Equinox 800. Can you help with the differences?

            The difference between these two metal detectors would be for what you intend to use it for. Here is some more information to help you:


            Gold Monster
            The Gold Monster has been designed primarily for hunting gold. The beauty of the Monster is its simplicity and it is definitely a more grab and go device. It has a state-of-the-art auto sensitivity to gold nuggets of both small and large in size. It also comes with a choice of two different sized DD search coils to aid you in finding different sized nuggets in different environments.


            Equinox 800
            On the other hand, we have the Equinox 800. The Equinox is also capable of finding gold, but at the end of the day, it is a general-purpose detector aimed primarily at coin, relic, and beach hunting. You can walk around prospecting for gold in the morning and in the afternoon chase coins in the park, all with the same familiar detector.


            Summary
            Once again the thing to look at is what you really want a detector for. If it’s all about gold I would recommend the Gold Monster. If you are looking for an all-purpose machine that includes more tweaking options and can also find gold I would recommend the Equinox 800. The Equinox also comes with a 3-year manufacturer warranty as opposed to the Gold Monster which has a 2 year one.

                    • Failure to provide this at the time of order may cause a delay in delivery as freight items will not be delivered without an appointment.   
                    • A delay in delivery may also cause additional storage fees to accrue that will need paid prior to delivery.
                • Note to international customers: We can ship worldwide where allowed by the Manufacturer. You are responsible for any and all duties or taxes that may apply. (see details below)
                  • Customs, Duties, and Taxes: Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to customs brokerage fees, import duties, and taxes after the shipment reaches the destination country. Additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient because we have no control over these government-imposed charges and cannot determine what they may be. Customs policies vary greatly among countries. Therefore, we cannot, and will not, offer advice about taxes in your country. We report the amount of the sale on the Customs form. Please do not ask us to claim less than the actual purchase amount. It is the customers responsibility to know the legality of the metal detectors ordered in their country. Do not order items that are illegal to import into your country. Laws are different in every country and we cannot keep up with them all. It is your responsibility to check with your Customs office to see if your country permits the shipment of our metal detectors to your country.
                  • As the buyer, it is your responsibility to find out that information before you order. Please contact your local customs office for information.
                  • To avoid a delay in receiving your order from customs, consider the following:
                  • Provide us with a phone number where you can be reached by customs when your metal detector arrives. This phone number will be listed on the commercial invoice so customs can reach you to clear your order.
                  • Please do not refuse a shipment or ignore requests from carriers regarding duty and/or tax liability charges. Be aware that most carriers will hold a shipment for 5 days after arrival in your country before they return it to the sender.
                  • We do not refund original shipping charges for goods that are refused for delivery at customs.
                  • We will deduct all additional fees resulting from refused international shipments from your refund.
                  • If we are charged for YOUR taxes and duties on the shipment or incur any penalty or lawsuit related to your order or shipment, we will post the charge to your credit card.
                  • If the package is seized by Customs for any reason and we do not receive the package back, we will NOT issue you a refund since, obviously, local laws and regulations determine the fate of the package. If we do receive the package back after being seized, you are still responsible for the shipping charges and any other fees plus penalties incurred.
                  • We ship via UPS and Fedex for most products, USPS for small parts and accessories, and freight for large products.
                  • If you don't receive tracking information from us within six business days of your order confirmation, feel free to follow up with us at support@modernmetaldetectors.com

If you order an OKM product and cancel after 24 hours there is a 15% admin fee if it has not shipped and a 25% restocking fee if it has shipped. This is a fee that covers administrative and shipment fees. 
                  • If your item is on backorder and you accept the backorder, we will hold your payment until the metal detector ships. If you decide to cancel before a backorder arrives and is processed for shipping, we will not charge a fee. 
                  • If you order has shipped, you (the buyer) will be responsible for actual return shipping charges. Refunds will only be issued to the original credit card that you use when placing your order.

                  Backorders:

                  • From time to time, a product may run out of stock at our warehouse and the website wasn't updated when you placed your order. In that case, we will send you an email right after you place your order notifying you of the backorder, what the expected time for arrival is, and what substitutes are available in case you are interested in getting a metal detector sooner.
                  • The expected arrival time may change due to unforeseen circumstances like a shipment getting held up at the port upon arrival or the factory missing a certain part needed to complete the manufacturing process.
                  • If the arrival time changes on your order, you can let us know whether you would like to keep the order, substitute for a different product, or cancel the order altogether. 
                  • Once back orders arrive, we will notify you by email with your estimated ship date and you will receive an email with tracking information within 1-3 business days.

                  How to Handle Damages, Exceptions or Discrepancies at time of Product Delivery (Carton packaging appears to have some damage such as ripped, holes, large dents, open carton, or items are missing):

                  • Carton damage requires visual inspection of contents of the unit. 
                  • Modern Metal Detectors recommends IMMEDIATE inspection, with driver present, to verify damage. If contents are damaged, indicate damage on carrier’s paperwork and notify Modern Metal Detectors immediately. 
                  • IMPORTANT: If contents cannot be inspected immediately, notation on carrier’s paperwork must state: “Carton damage, subject to inspection” and list type of damage. 
                  • Contents must be inspected within 48 hours of arrival and actual damage reported to the carrier

                  Carton packaging has excessive damage with the exposed product:

                  • Refuse shipment
                  • Sign carrier paperwork: “Carton damaged and refused”
                  • Notify Modern Metal Detectors immediately.

                  Ask a Question
                  • How much deeper this machine can detect gold from out ground? Thanks

                     
                    This question we hear a lot and it is an important one. The short answer is that there are many variables that can affect the depth of metal is detected. VLF (very low frequency) hobby detectors can detect various depths depending on the ground conditions and target size. However, it is known that the size of the coil is usually how deep it will detect. For example, if you have got an 10-inch coil, it will typically detect at a depth of 10 inches.

                     

                  • I need sknow the dig.la profundidad a puede detectar el Oro ?

                     
                    Este detector de metales puede encontrar oro a una profundidad de hasta 10 pulgadas bajo tierra.

                  • How heavy is the gold monster?

                    Detector Weight (with 10x6" coil) : 2.94 lbs (1.33kgs) (excluding battery)

                  • Hello. I am interested in purchasing a new detector. I was looking for either the Gold monster or Equinox 800. Can you help with the differences?

                    The difference between these two metal detectors would be for what you intend to use it for. Here is some more information to help you:


                    Gold Monster
                    The Gold Monster has been designed primarily for hunting gold. The beauty of the Monster is its simplicity and it is definitely a more grab and go device. It has a state-of-the-art auto sensitivity to gold nuggets of both small and large in size. It also comes with a choice of two different sized DD search coils to aid you in finding different sized nuggets in different environments.


                    Equinox 800
                    On the other hand, we have the Equinox 800. The Equinox is also capable of finding gold, but at the end of the day, it is a general-purpose detector aimed primarily at coin, relic, and beach hunting. You can walk around prospecting for gold in the morning and in the afternoon chase coins in the park, all with the same familiar detector.


                    Summary
                    Once again the thing to look at is what you really want a detector for. If it’s all about gold I would recommend the Gold Monster. If you are looking for an all-purpose machine that includes more tweaking options and can also find gold I would recommend the Equinox 800. The Equinox also comes with a 3-year manufacturer warranty as opposed to the Gold Monster which has a 2 year one.
