Small Group personalised detector training offered on the range of Minelab Metal Detectors [SDC/GPX/GPZ]. Whatever Minelab Metal Detector you own it pays to be trained.

  • Detector Technologies
  • Indicators and the clues they give
  • Vegetation
  • How to setup your detector
  • Correct Detecting Technique
Gold Nuggets, Minelab GPZ5000

Groups are kept to a maximum of [2] Detector operators, partners can attend, thus ensuring every participant gets the maximum learning experience during the day. Keeping the group size small also allows for adapting the training to the operators particular needs. All participants will need to bring along their own metal detector for the training session, and ensure they have a valid Miners Right available here. 

Minelab Detector Training is currently available on the following models:

  • Minelab GPZ 7000
  • GPX Series
  • SDC 2300

The training session runs for 4-6 hours and costs $160pp, we meet at 9:00am, meeting point is Parkview Bakery Maryborough to grab a coffee and food. We then head out to a test patch to start the day.
