Improve Your Chances of Finding Gold: Buy a Minelab Equinox 800 Metal Detector from Lucky Strike Gold Prospecting

Metal detecting is a fun way to enjoy the outdoors, stay active and maybe even find a few treasures along the way. If you are involved in this hobby for fun and the occasional find, you probably aren’t too worried about getting your hands on the highest performance metal detector on the market. If you want to increase your chances of finding gold and other goodies, though, you should make sure that the new Minelab Equinox 800 metal detector is on your radar.

The Launch of the Equinox Series

For a long time, Minelab has been the biggest name in metal detectors in Australia and New Zealand. The company’s range of high quality detectors—such as the much acclaimed CTX 3030—are favoured by prospectors and treasure hunting enthusiasts everywhere. The forthcoming Equinox series, though, is said to raise the bar even higher.

According to Minelab, the detectors in the Equinox series—including the Equinox 800—will render single frequency VLF metal detectors obsolete. The detectors in the Equinox range will be multi-purpose and all-terrain models. Users will be able to adapt each device to suit the ground conditions in the area where they are prospecting. They can just choose a mode that suits their location and go from there. This feature will improve the speed and overall effectiveness of the Minelab Equinox 800 and all other detectors in the series.

Equinox series metal detectors will also feature what Minelab calls Multi-IQ. This technology turns the Equinox metal detectors into multi-frequency devices, which will also speed up object recovery time.

How to Buy an Equinox 800 Metal Detector

Minelab has not announced an official release date for the Equinox series just yet. However, we are proud to say that Lucky Strike Gold Prospecting will be carrying both models from the series once they are available.

The two models of the Equinox series—at least that Minelab has announced so far—are the Equinox 600 and the Equinox 800. Both metal detectors will include similar features, such as multiple modes and Minelab’s state of the art Multi-IQ technology. The 600 will be a little less advanced, offering three detect modes (Park, Field, and Beach), four frequency options and support for wired headphones.

The Minelab Equinox 800, meanwhile, will offer four detection modes (Park, Field, Beach, and Gold), six frequency options and support for both wired headphones and Bluetooth wireless headphones. The suggested pricing for each model is AUD 999.00 for the Equinox 600 and AUD 1299.00 for the Equinox 800.
