The new Minelab X-Terra 705 Gold Pack is now available for sale through Rob's Detector Sales. This unit is selling for $698.95 and comes stock with the Minelab 18.75kHz Double-D Elliptical Searchcoil. Please read below for more details on this detector. I currently have them available and ready to ship.

Minelab X-Terra 705 Gold Pack


The ever popular X-TERRA 705 is now available in an all new Gold Pack configuration. The X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack comes with the 18.75kHz Double-D elliptical coil as standard, to give you effective depth and ground coverage out in the field. Using 18.75kHz as the standard frequency coil, the X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack is especially configured for gold prospecting, with advanced Iron Mask Discrimination and Ground Balance functions, which are perfect for detecting in mineralised goldfield ground.

The X-TERRA 705 offers the ultimate detecting experience. Capitalising on the versatility of the range, the X-TERRA 705 can be used for gold prospecting as well as for coin & treasure hunting, simply by switching between available pre-programmed modes. Thanks to Gold Prospecting and Coin & Treasure Modes you get a gold detector plus coin, treasure & relic detector all in one!

Across diverse detecting conditions and in the toughest environments, the X-TERRA 705 delivers optimal performance with ease. An all-purpose detector capable of all types of detecting, from gold prospecting to coin & treasure, relic and beach. Performance and features driven, the versatility of this detector makes it without question, the leading detector in this category.

The specialised Prospecting Mode has improved sensitivity making the detector more sensitive to small target signals. The Prospecting Mode can be used in highly mineralised, 'difficult' areas. The high frequency Double-D coil that comes standard with the X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack offers advantages, as its great at handling these conditions. The Prospecting Mode is ideal not only when searching for gold nuggets but also for small relics and some types of jewellery.

Packed with features and offering you the ultimate in flexibility, the X-TERRA 705 is a superior detector that will find you more, more often!

Perfect for when you want an easy to learn and simple to operate detector that finds you gold.


•Minelab’s proprietary "True Digital" VFLEX technology, the new class of single frequency detectors allowing you to change the frequency simply by changing coils.

•Standard 18.75kHz Double-D elliptical coil provides effective depth and ground coverage, plus the coil’s high frequency is extremely sensitive and perfectly suited for finding small pieces of gold.

•Compatible with low, mid and high frequency waterproof coils - all 7 X-TERRA accessory coils can be used with the X-TERRA 705.

•Automatic/Manual Ground Balancing, Tracking and now with Tracking Ground Balance Offset adjustment. This creates a performance advantage in certain areas such as wet/dry sand transition and hot rock locations, by setting the balance slightly positive or negative.

•True automatic Ground Balance eliminates false ground noises so you can hear elusive small gold signals.

•Four preset detecting patterns that can also be customised plus All-Metal mode.

•Adjustable Iron Mask – designed for Prospecting Mode. This feature allows you to find desirable targets lying close to ferrous metals.

• Effective noise cancel reduces interference.

•Threshold tone for more accurate target ID interpretation.

•Two Pinpoint Modes: Auto and Sizing. With the new Sizing feature, the user gets valuable information on target characteristics including shape and size with variable tone and graphical indicator.

•Target ID stability – precise, solid responsiveness in high-trash areas enabling you to efficiently and effectively search sites with a high concentration of junk.

•Also a great coin detector with highly accurate discrimination and numeric target identification.

•Positive transflective LCD display providing a back light only in dim light conditions enabling better screen visibility in poor lighting whilst saving battery charge in well lit conditions.

•Depth indicators, update continuously, even in Pinpoint mode.

•Runs on just 4 x AA batteries.

•Ultra lightweight, balanced design (only 1.3kgs) so you can enjoy detecting for longer periods.

Hi Rob, quick questions:

1) What is length of 'coil short shaft' for X705? or how many inches shorter than the stock (oem) shaft? Suzy is 5'2" and may need to go that short-shaft route.

2) A techy question... What is expected depth increase of round 10.5" DD coil, compared to 10x5" DD coil? (is it 10%, 20%, 30% more depth?) Going from 5" width to 10.5" width on a DD should increase depth and I'm sure there's a formula someplace, but I haven't been able to sniff it out yet.

Many Thanks... Keep Smiling... Fritz

Hi Rob, Interesting reply from ML on their X705 digital vs sine wave question I asked. Bottomline they are using digital 'processing' to enhanse X705 sine wave signal by adjusting automatically the frequency to match the unique individual coil performance. Think of sine wave as wearing a fuzzy coat, they are now able to trim off that fuzz with super tight frequency adjustment. see below:

I just bought a X-TERRA 705 believing it was 'new' digital signal technology. But reality is, it only has digital electronic 'processing' not digital square wave signal technology. The X-TERRA 705 does use improved analog sine wave frequency capability. I am confused by your statement above that X-TERRA 705 has "digital frequency range". Please explain...

Many Thanks... Mitkof

Hi Mitkof,

The X-TERRA 705 uses digital electronics, called VFLEX to both generate the transmit sine wave and process the return signal. Whilst the transmitted signal is an analogue sine wave it is generated by digital electronics. This is an advantage as digital electronics, unlike analogue electronics, is capable of generating a mathematical perfect sine wave. This is important and improves the detector’s sensitivity because any changes in the received signal are due to the environment (targets, ground and electrical noise) and not due to any imperfections or distortion of the transmitted signal.

Another advantage of the X-TERRA 705’s VFLEX digital circuitry is that the transmitted sine wave‘s frequency is digitally matched to the coils frequency. No two coils are exactly identical, as small physical variations have an effect on the coil’s frequency. If the frequency of the signal from the control box does not match the coil’s frequency then the transmitted signal will be distorted, reducing the detector’s sensitivity. VFLEX uses digital communication between the coil and the control box to determine the coil’s exact frequency. This allows the control box to know the exact frequency of the coil and adjust the frequency of the transmitted signal to match the coil’s frequency. So if the coil’s frequency is 3.049kHz then the X-TERRA won’t just transmit 3.000kHz as an analogue detector would. It will adjust the transmit frequency to exactly 3.049kHz reducing distortion and therefore increasing sensitivity.
