No dealers can only buy so many dozens of detectors before all their finances become invested in stock. if it's 4500's, that stock might not move at all. all the dealers I phoned said "NO MODS" on any detector & the only price I got from them was $3500 for a second hand 4500 with & parts and accessories but it had to be in top condition. Go figure. Mad

Gday

The late in the season release of the the gpx 5000 etc is part of the reason for the low trade in value of the 4500's, as most dealers are going to have to carry them in stock until next season, and also that is why Ebay and all local sales papers have been bombarded with second hand ones for sale as some people are wanting to get back a better price than what is being offered as a trade.

You have to feel sorry for the poor sods that after waiting months to get their hands on one finally got it just to find a new one realeased a short time later, particularly the people who ordered several hoping to make a fast buck on them.

By the start of the next prospecting season there will no doubt be used 5000's for sale too, so sit back and relax theres plenty of time, and if there are any issues with the new model they should have all come to light and be dealt with by then too.

cheers

If, as we are led to believe that most owners of the 45s have found kilos of gold.....then why not just go the nugget stockpile, grab a handful, plonk it down on the dealers counter,take the 5000 and keep the 45 for a spare.....why worry about "trade ins".....and the dealers will have a good cash-flow.

Gday Sandy2010


I did actually think about that but there was only one hitch no dealer wants to pay the going price for the gold, they want you to pay retail price for the detector and take mates rates for the gold you give them for it.

Anyway I am happy with my 4500 for the time being and am currently working on the second kg found with it Very Happy .

cheers

Yes correct. Not worth selling and anyway - if possible would be best to keep your current 4500 for a spare...........buy the 5000 and with all the deep big nuggets you will find, you can easily pay off next months credit card bill for the $6,500. You only need a 5oz or 2 x 2.5oz ........ to clear the debt. Then you are cash positive and have a free detector. As you never know when you need a spare! Its always a long way home. Acan jocolor

I am still hoping to buy a GPX 4500, at a price that won't set me back if I sell soon after (I have only been out 3 times with a friend and his detector).

If you have one and want cash instead of trade-in, PM me (preferably within 300km from Melbourne Vic).

Thanks

Still seem to be fetching between $4000 and $4500 on Fleabay and my bet is they may drop a tad as more flood the market then will settle back up around $4400 to $4500.

The price point of a new 4500 will stay the same but with another coil, probably the 11" mono thrown in.

Why be in a hurry to buy the new toy, My 4500 with a 12" or 16" round nugget finder coil is finding gold from .1 up to 16grams,
You have to be sure of finding lots more gold that the 4500 wouldnt find before you can justify spending the $3000 change over to a 5000.
thats my thoughts anyway.
happy hunting

G'day Harrysheroes.

For anyone with little experience in the prospecting for gold game,i can understand the justification.
For others who have been in the game many years (although still regarded as hobby first) need no
justification. Every previous model i owned more than made up the difference(gold wise)to invest in the
newest upcoming model.Even more so now with the current gold price reaching new highs.Thorough research
and actual ground time,are the keys to success.

Cheers kon61.

4500 trade in price Empty My Story

Post  shelby23 Tue Nov 02, 2010 11:39 am

Hi artrix
I am lucky and have a gold bearing Quartz seam on my property with old Diggs
I am told that is what they are called and they must have been keen as the ground is like concrete and there was a lot of deep Channels in the ground were they were looking.
I have been told over 50 years ago the Area was always popular after a flood of rain with people having there favorite secret panning spots.
After a long drought and the passing of time the old timers are ghosts now.
I have been in the area for 10 years now after getting out of the Army 12 years ago and done 20 years in the Army before that and love hiking the area with my dogs.
I have had to find my own information by walking and marking things on my GPS and Google Earth has been very helpful
The local Historical Society has no information so I am guessing the Miners in the area 120 years ago were not willing or able to write about there finds.
My favorite recent story is 4 years ago when the Timber Reserve next door was transferred to a National Park.
So there was a Ranger sent into check the area by foot for a report, anyway while walking up the creek in what I call a huge Hidden Valley, with the creek being the only entry ringed by a high mountain range around it.
The Ranger spotted a sun baker in the Creek 8 ounces nugget and was of course very excited at this great fined.
The story goes that when he got back to the Rangers Office in Gladstone the guys were jealous of his fined.
They started saying well if you were working for National Parks then you should hand the Nugget to the National Park department.
As he was very religious and they said that God would tell you that would be the right thing to do of course they were only stirring blokes, you get in any work place and yes when it came to God and Gold he kept the Gold Nugget.
I heard this from 3 different sources to make shore it wasn’t made up.
The reason the Creek was so cleaned out at the time was there was a fire and a good rain after the fire to clean the ground.
I have no Idea how the fire started before National Parks took over just on of those thing I guess?
I used that time to look around at the time and found quartz seams for my GPS that are covered in growth now.
So I have narrowed down roughly where the 8 ounce Nugget was found and NO I am not selling any Treasure Maps this is all my own research in my own head and no one I know wants to go there. lol
If the quartz seam in the National Park runs directly North-South like all the other quartz seam do in the area.
Then this seam with large bolder quartz in the National Parks is at 106 Meters above sea level then it runs through the mountain and runs out on to my property at 106 meters above sea level.
I used Google Earth Ruler to confirm my Bearings and they worked out spot on.
This spot is were a Chinese mining camp working a quartz seam 120 years ago
I heard 2 brothers worked it for what they call Grub Steaks or like a work for the dole. One of the brothers died his grave is there they say I haven’t seen it for my self though d The other one left when the Grub Steaks stopped.
Now that I have my new GPX4500 I can’t wait for the creek to go down and have another look around where it runs through the Chinese camp I had a friend find targets in that creek with his GPX3500 due to health issues were not dug up and when I went back with my Eureka Gold detector it wasn’t up to the job and now will be a dust collector on my cupboard.

Regards Neale From Biloela Queensland
