Detector hire. Should you wish to hire the latest

Keepers in Kalgoorlie West Australia. Bookings for the
hire are essential. adds about $35 per day.
Why the Mine Lab GPX5000 ? At the moment in W.A, the only machine
to use is the GPX series.
The ground where gold will usually be found is extremely
magnetic, and to date only the GPX can be relied
upon to penetrate those conditions in deep ground.
However, we are always open to other brands, as Bill
tells me he has personally found more gold with an
early Garrett detector, but he has not used the latest
other brands. So please do not underestimate other high
end gold detectors.
