I only now have a Whites MXT and the 3000. MXT for coins and the 3000 for the Gold fields. The only thing I would like to see in my 3000 is a VDI meter. I have dug too many nails, tacks, rusty cans, etc. Minelab 3000 is simple and easy to use.
From the B.C. Canada gold fields.

Using the Minelab gp3000 compared to the gpx3500, 4000, 4500
Now the info that I received is as follows.....if your working a high mineral or high trash area then by all means the the gpx models are the best, but if you were to work low mineral low trash ares like the ground I'm prospecting in then the gp3000 is the way to go, not only that but, you must first start off getting used to the tones and signals that are being received, for example my buddy went out with one of his buddies to prospect in the golden triangle, Victoria, Australia and to his surprise his mate was passing over signals using the 4500 while his 3000 was picking up a stronger signal and that was in a low trash area and yes more gold nuggets.
My message to you is if your a novice then start at the bottom, but if you a gun and know your ground don't let those nuggets pass you by....... cos I'm sure you don't new comers out gunning you on there cheaper model.
They both have there good and bad points but let me tell you this..... it is very hard to find a 3000 model for sale anywhere in Ozzy including on ebay as for the 3500, 4000 and 4500 models, well there constantly being sold all over the world. Hold on to your 3000 when you update don't sell it because they are worth there weight in GOLD....... thanks for reading....
