GPX 6000

We finally get a glimpse of the long awaited Minelab GPX 6000! The rumours have been swirling for the past 6 months so it is very exciting to have this serious gold detector finally being released by Minelab, the leading metal detector company in the world. Minelab are designed in Australia for our conditions and the Minelab gold detectors are second to none in the world for finding gold. As the name suggests, this detector is placed between the GPX 5000 and the GPZ 7000 which means that it is a serious gold detector with the added bonus of new technology. As soon as it is released Darren will be testing this detector and letting you all know what he thinks. Stay tuned!

About Us

40 Long Years of Prospecting

I started prospecting with my Grandfather when I was a teenager. My Grandfather took me  goldpanning and then I graduated to detecting after being inspired by a work colleague who had a metal detector and kept bringing the gold she had found into show me. I bought my first metal detector, a Garrett Deepseeker and I was hooked. I still remember the first gold nugget I ever found. Wasnt I excited! Since then I have found hundreds of ounces of gold nuggets just by using a metal detector.  The thrill of the hunt has kept me passionate about gold prospecting. In 2017, this all consuming passion has lead us down the path to opening Lucky Strike Gold Prospecting, a prospecting equipment shop assisted by a friendly, helpful team and all the equipment you will need in your search for gold and treasure.

    After being referred to Lucky Strike by a mate I ordered a GPZ7000 and some other items. From the first phone call they were friendly and professional. Brilliant to deal with. I’ll be back soon to get my brother a Z too.

    Never used a metal detector before but was desperate to find my wife's missing wedding ring lost in our jungle of a yard.
    They recommended a detector that was easy and explained how to operate it. Very professional and helpfull through
    … More entire process.
    Found the ring in 10 minutes saving a lot of heart ache and worry. Now we are thinking about renting a couple and taking a trip to try our luck.
    Great store and staff.
