Top 3 gold detectors (IMO) Minelab (very expensive as are repairs), Fisher Gold Bug (series), and my favorite, Whites (the GMT is highly sensitive to smallish gold found in NM and it is strictly a gold nugget tool). The Whites MXT series detectors are good for both nugget hunting AND does very well at relic, coin and jewelry hunting too. I swing the MXT almost exclusively these days although I am getting a sweet spot for the Whites TDI SL (pulse vs VLF type unit).

Customer service and USA build quality is tops with Whites. Garrett makes good products, but I havent seen that many in the gold fields. The $10000 (yes ten thousand) dollar price tag on Minelab's top unit seems over the top. Whites makes a competitive unit for well under a grand.

There are some new "kids" on the block, but I believe these proven tools will get the job done.

Important to remember that size and conductivity of gold found in an area or specific location will give one unit a leg up over another and will favor one or the other for quality of the experience and finds.

Google Whites electronics 88061 for local dealer contact, and Ill follow up on any q's you have. Be happy to help get you started with a suitable detector.
