SHOT Show 2022: Detecting Excitement

New products, special appearances, and face-to-face networking with buyers and media will highlight Minelab’s return to SHOT Show in Las Vegas

Chicago, IL (January 11, 2022) – Minelab, the world leader in metal-detecting technologies for gold prospecting, treasure hunting, and landmine clearance, is all-in for the SHOT Show’s much-anticipated 2022 return to Las Vegas.

After last year’s event was canceled due to the pandemic, Michelle Meyers, Minelab Global Vice President of Marketing, says her team couldn’t be more excited about returning to the world’s largest trade show for the shooting, hunting, and outdoor industries. “We’re embracing the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s (NSSF) call to be all-in at this year’s show,” says Meyers. “In addition to launching some exceptional new products and reconnecting face-to-face throughout the week with our industry partners, this year’s SHOT Show represents a great opportunity to continue to drive our brand’s momentum within the shooting sports and outdoor communities. The silver lining of this pandemic has been a historic influx of new and reactivated participants in just about every outdoor activity. We’re anxious to remind everyone in the industry what an excellent companion pastime metal detecting is to hunting and the shooting sports. Whether you’re a retailer, distributor, or a member of the outdoor media, we invite you to come see us in our booth to have a conversation about how we can work together to satisfy the current, unprecedented interest and consumer demand for recreational metal-detecting products with our industry-leading technologies.”

Located in the Venetian Expo Level 1, this year’s Minelab booth (#41516) is a can’t-miss stop for SHOT Show attendees.

Exciting New Products

Come explore the Minelab GPX 6000 smart, all-gold detector powered by new Geo-Sense-PITMtechnology on display in the 2022 SHOT Show New Product Center.

The new Minelab GPX 6000 smart, all-gold detector is the fastest, lightest and simplest way to find all types of gold in one machine. With automatic features and an easy-to-use interface, the GPX 6000 is ready to find gold from the moment it’s switched on. And because GeoSense-PI continuously adapts to changing soil conditions during use, there’s no need to adjust any settings; simply swing the detector and find gold. Detect longer and remain more comfortable with premium ergonomics that contribute to a lighter swing. Weighing a feathery 2.1 kg (4.6 lbs), the new Minelab GPX 6000 incorporates serious features like carbon fiber shafts, a streamlined and intuitive control box, signature U‑Flex™ armrest, and a new Li-Ion quick-release rechargeable battery delivering up to eight hours of operation on a single charge. The durable and reliable GPX 6000 includes a versatile 11″ Monoloop coil for an ideal balance between ground coverage and pinpointing small gold pieces, as well as a larger 14″ double-D coil to detect gold accurately in the saltiest of environments. Both included coils are waterproof to 1 m/3 ft.

Don’t miss out on growing consumer interest in the metal-detecting market in the coming year and beyond. The Minelab Team looks forward to meeting you at this year’s SHOT show to discuss how our technologies and products can meet the specific needs of your business and customers.
