GPX5000 & 24" x 12" UFO the old coiltek

Recommended Posts

Hello Nubian,

The Coiltek UFO 24x12 will work fine on the Minelab GPX 5000. As for settings, there are so many combinations on the GPX 5000 I would recommend experimenting with it. For max depth you might want to try using just "Normal" timing. If the ground is very mineralized, you might want to experiment with Fine Gold or Enhance.

Very nice nugget you have displayed in your picture. What was the weight of that Monster?

Talk with you later,

Rob Allison

The 12 X 24 will work great on the GPX5000. As far as setting go, it is more dependent on the conditions and ground type you are working than the coil. Start with you last known good settings, and tweak it from there. You may need to adjust your stability a bit if you are using a bigger or small coil, because the coil is looking at either more, or less mineralization depending on the coil size.
