Gold Prospecting Christmas Gift Suggestions

Minelab New Detector PlannedHi everyone
"New model After the Minelab 5000? There has been a lot of rumours about an impending new model of the Minelab 5000"
We only discussed that in the last newsletter and were told by Minelab that there will not be one for a while.
But of course they were speaking of a replacement for the Minelab 5000 which will not happen for at a minimum 12 months.
However it appears that in response to market needs (and maybe the emergence of the Garrett ATX PI) there will be a new Pulse Induction detector which will fit somewhere between the XTerra 705 and Minelab 5000. It is the Minelab SDC2300, here is a picture and link to their site.
Your Loved "Metal Detector Operator" Ones Christmas Gift Suggestions;Christmas gifts time is here so here is a suggested list of items you can buy for your loved one (Or for yourself - if You've been good!)
Udo and I have some Specials as well so if you are thinking of buying the Goldmine Finder or a Protective Metal Detector Bag now is the time to do it.
SPECIAL 1 *** A Metal Detector Bag with a free Matching Control Box CoverWhy would you buy an expensive metal detector and not invest a few dollars on a protective metal Detector bag to protect it.
If you purchase a metal detector bag before Christmas Day we will also include a matching Minelab 5000/4500 control box cover for no extra cost to protect your Minelab Control Box..
The bags will be posted to you (postage applies) or you can pick it up in Perth if you prefer. I will even deliver it if you live in the Northern Perth Suburbs.
You don't have to do anything it will be included in your package when you order the Metal Detector bag. Just order the bag and I will include the control Box cover when it is posted.

SPECIAL 2 *** Goldmine Finder CD with a Free Copy of the Historical Gold Mines CD
This is our own product and it is a very good aid to finding and locating the GPS Points of gold mines, alluvial areas, dryblowing areas and prospective target areas in WA. $45.

Give One of Dr Fagan's CD's on Prospecting in WAThis will really be treasured by the Gold Prospector or metal detector operator.
Dr Fagan has taught Geology at the Kalgoorlie School of Mines and he is a renowned authority on Geology and gold in WA.
He has some CD products available for around $30 like " Basic Geology for WA Prospectors" and we recommend them.
The Dr Robert Fagan CDs are available at your local metal detecting Store see below.
A Hipstick or Control Arm
It can be tiring when you out out detecting for a few hours with a detector without a control arm or a hipstick.
A Control arm ($50 to $60) makes the Detector easier to swing and takes some pressure off your should and and swing arm and a hipstick takes the pressure off your shoulders and back and transfers the weight to you hips.
My wife Sue is a real fan of the hipstick and would not be able to detect as long without it.
Spare Stuff for The Bush
A Spare Bungy kit and bow knuckle ($25-$30).
A Spare lower shaft ($45)
A Spare Minelab 12v Vehicle charger $35)
These things break and its always nice to have a spare when you are out in the bush, there aint no shops out there to buy one!
Whatever the metal detector your fanatical friend has is there is always equipment spares that will be appreciated.
How about a subscription to Gold Gem and Treasure Magazine?
How a subscription to the Gold Gem and Treasure magazine for 12 months (around $60)

An External Speaker
