Minelab's most technologically advanced detector sets new industry benchmark!

The E-TRAC is Minelab's most technologically advanced detector incorporating unique Full Band Spectrum (FBS) technology and SmartfindTM discrimination. Its sleek, sturdy design, innovative control panel, intuitive menus, clear LCD screen, robust lightweight coil and comprehensive targeting options set the E-TRAC apart from any other detector available today.

Minelab has taken the groundbreaking step of incorporating a USB interface – the E-TRAC Xchange (see the Images & 360 page for pictures). This enables you to connect your metal detector to your home computer to download and upload your E-TRAC settings, user modes and discrimination patterns. There are a number of sample patterns you can try located on the specifications page. You can build a resource library charting your success with your E-TRAC storing your valuable settings for your favourite sites - never worry about losing your most successful settings again! This advanced feature is also designed to allow you to quickly configure the E-TRAC at the touch of a button to particular detecting environments and preferred targets so you can spend less time messing about with settings and more time out in the field doing what you love doing, detecting.

When it comes down to it the E-TRAC will locate valuable metal objects in a variety of mineralised ground conditions such as extremely salty soils, seawater, wet beach sand and highly magnetic ground conditions. By using the E-TRAC you can become one of the many successful detectorists who combine their passion for the outdoors with the excitement of discovering valuable coins, relics, gold and jewellery on a regular basis.


  • Utilising FBS technology with simultaneous frequencies ranging from 1.5kHz - 100kHz the signal received from the detectors coil is analysed from a wide range of responses. This allows E-TRAC's advanced signal processing to analyse more target information so that target identification is more accurate. 
  • E-TRAC Xchange USB functionality - create, download and upload your favourite E-TRAC settings and save them to your computer or Xchange them with friends by email. 
  • QuickMaskTM with independent ferrous and conductivity rejection level adjust - a fast and simple way to edit patterns. 
  • SmartfindTM - a unique two-dimensional scale of discrimination graphically representing both the ferrous and conductivity properties on the same display working to eliminate signals from undesired targets and accepts signals from desired targets. 
  • Discrimination scale with radical realignment improves target ID and the recovery rate of good targets at depth. 
  • Four pre-programmed Minelab user modes for switch on and go detecting with specific Settings and Patterns suited to Coins; High Trash; Beach and Relics. 
  • Four user mode slots so you can personalise modes to suit your specific target preferences and detecting environment. 
  • Refined threshold adjustment level on a 1-50 scale for greater precision to suit your requirements. 
  • Pinpoint with audio and visual indicators on two modes making target size and identification more accurate than ever. 
  • Ground Setting options of Neutral and Difficult allowing you to adapt easily to benign or the most challenging operating conditions. 
  • Trash Density settings - High ensures you experience fewer false signals in high trash environments while Low is perfect for cleaner sites. 
  • User-centered keypad and menu design – fast and easy to use with intuitive icons and logical menu sequences. 
  • Clear resolution visual display panel 72mm x 48mm - designed for optimum visibility in all light conditions. 
  • Ergonomic, perfectly balanced Handle Assembly ensures longer periods of detecting without fatigue! 
  • Ultra-lightweight waterproof 11" Double-D waterproof coil for versatility with sharp, accurate pinpointing and depth.

The 3rd generation Explorer surpasses anything you've seen for depth, sensitivity and superior discrimination!

The Full Band Spectrum (FBS) circuit automatically transmits multiple frequencies simultaneously.



Minelab Explorer SE PRO

Better than the Minelab Explorer XS, II
 The increased frequency range means that the signal received from the detector coil is analyzed from a wide range of responses.
This allows the Explorer SE to analyse more target information so that the Target Identification (ID) is more accurate.
Ground balancing is automatic with Minelab's advanced digital filtering. Whatever field conditions you encounter, from dry clay to wet black sand or rich loam,
Minelab will find what you're looking for.
Minelab's unique FBS technology means deep, sensitive, accurate detecting.


Hidden treasures are now within reach with Safari!

Powered by Minelab's FBS multiple frequency technology, Safari combines deep, sensitive and accurate detecting for anyone demanding both simplicity AND performance!

Safari uses advanced digital filtering to eliminate the influence of ground signals, automatically. Experience easy, seamless detecting whatever the field conditions!

With its High Trash Density setting, Target Ids and audio tones are updated when sweeping over closely spaced targets FAST! This improves the recovery of deeply buried high conductivity targets in a trashy environment and allows you to more accurately identify the type of target found.

Accurate and easy to use, press the pinpoint button and watch the Safari zone-in on the precise location of that precious target.

With four pre-programmed Detect modes, you can choose from Coin; Coin & Jewellery; Relic or All Metal. Each individual mode contains the optimum settings for identifying the characteristics of your preferred targets, allowing you to maximise your time in the field.


  • Ultra-lightweight 11" Double D waterproof coil combines high performance, great depth and sharp pinpointing.

  • Four pre-programmed Detection Modes - Coin; Coin/Jewellery; Relic and All Metal.

  • Four Programmable user modes

  • Linear -10 to +40 discrimination scale. Accept/Reject functionality.

  • Fully Automatic and Manual Sensitivity control options.

  • Pinpoint with audio and visual indicators for accurate detection.

  • Trash Density - High ensures fewer false signals experienced in typical coin and relic environments, Low is ideal for clean sites.

  • Threshold adjustment level on a 0-40 scale.

  • Target Volume Adjust - adapts target signal volume to suit user preference.

  • Noise Cancel - automatically selects the quietest, most stable channel for detecting.

  • Menu Interface - Intuitive menu structure for fast and easy access and adjustment. Clear view target depth gauge; Target ID number; Target Icon (in Coin and Coin/Jewellery Modes); Mode indicators and Graphic Identification Bar showing active discrimination pattern.

  • LCD Screen, 64 x 128 pixel with adjustable contrast settings.

  • Long lower shaft as standard allowing extra extension for user comfort.

  • Robust, well balanced design for comfortable detecting over longer period.

  • MSRP $1195.00, MAP $999.00

Explorer SE 8" coil

8 Inch FBS Coil & & lower shaft

The 8 inch Explorer coil is great for detecting areas of high rubbish content. If two or more targets are located under a coil at once, the discrimination can sometimes be effected. By using a smaller, more precise coil like the 8" coil, you are able to pick up individual targets and accurate identification of each one separately. The 8 inch coil is very lightweight and ideal for searching around hard-to-get-at locations.
