The legendary performance of the MXT is like having three metal detectors in one! This detector is as comfortable hunting for coins in the park as searching old battlefields for relics. Its easy operation and performance were designed by prospectors for the tough task of finding gold.
Three separate programs give you versatility with different target responses, display info, and audio frequencies for Relics, Prospecting, and Coins/Jewelry.
Relic: Specifically identifies buttons, buckles, and bullets with three options for tone ID.
Prospecting: Iron Grunt for targets with high probability of being iron.
Coin/Jewelry: Coin/jewelry/trash target ID with distinct tone IDs.
All modes have automatic ground balance, overload alert, VDI range of -95 to +95, and 3-easy-to-adjust controls:
Gain maximizes sensitivity and depth. Threshold allows you to hunt with a slight hum or hear only the sound of detected targets. Dual control functions differently in each program.

Multiple GainsNot only did I find coins the first day and jewelry in the first week, I had a ton of fun. I was so focused and involved in the searching that I completely relaxed and my stress level went to zero.
Fine machineBeen using it as a coin shooter for years but lately, my son and I have developed an interest in prospecting. I have no doubt this machine will serve me well to check my header piles from my Keene 140. I'll use it to high grade mines and look for nuggets/specimens in dredge boat tailings. So far, no complaints with coins. I started out in the late 70's with a White's 2DB. Then had a 6000D followed that with a 6000DI pro.. With the higher frequency, the MXT still speaks White's special language and does well in all types of ground with the exception of soggy high water areas. Now that the ice off in our secret location, I'm out of here.
best detector I've ever hadSince getting my White's MXT, Nov. 21, I have found 9 civil war bullets, 3 buttons, a chunk of lead and melted lead, and a pistol all on 1 site with the exception of 1 bullet. also an 1857 half dime, an 1897 Indian head penny, wheat pennies dated 1909, 1914, 16, 18, 19, 20, and 28. also 1 mercury dime, a 46, silver dime and 2 buffalo nickels. all coins from a single picnic grove. this machine has great depth and precision!
It certainly does find targets. Lots of them.I am still trying to get used to the discrimination part. Nickels ring up the same as pull tabs. aluminum caps ring up like quarters. I hope to learn some more of the tricks in proper use soon. I seem to be digging things I should have skipped over. I have watched the 4 video's on youtube and they did help. How about some advanced video's now?? I am not at 5 stars yet, but will keep trying.
My MXT is just Awesome ....!First week I paid for my MXT in Nuggets 3/4 oz in one afternoon Biggest one was just over 1 Penny weight....... Love it have not used for much outside gold but I am sure the other to setting will prove just as good ........Thanks White's for making this awesome detectoer....
High Level Metal DetectingWith the MXT White's did a big throw. This machine is deep, accurate and can be used in most, if not all, environments. What I love on this machine is, it is set up in no time to best performance to the area to be hunted. Even in EMI loaded areas it will bring up relics, coins and jewelry. Don't forget the great amount of coils from White's which can be used. So this is a new, high level in detecting to me.
Great MachineI bought my White's MXT in 2003. After retiring to Nevada in 2007 I stored my MXT and basically forgot about it. I also lost touch with the online detecting communities and have not kept up with technology changes in the hobby. I felt it was time to take my MXT out of retirement and visit some of the many mining ghost towns in Northern Nevada. As I began to research the new machines I was very happy to discover that my White's MXT is still considered to be a top of the line detector. I feel this is attributable to the amazing engineering White's puts into their products. A big thank you to White's engineering and I hope to share some interesting finds in the near future.
Best detectorI've had my detector about 7 years, had a gold prospector before could not find as much as my newer MXT. I took it up to Nome a few years back and had some trouble on the beach trying to get it balanced. It took 3 day messing with it for about 3 hours a day, I found GOLD with it. Found the problem was there was so much fine gold the it would not ground balance. But it works great every where else.
It is a good machine but it is noisey. Spot on with nickels and quarters. Silver rings real good. Gold rings another story.I bought this metal detector cause of the name and the good reviews it had. It really is a good machine.
It takes sometime to get to know it so play with it alot. Gold rings have really been a challange for me with this machine. As with all gold rings they are in the pulltab range and seems kinda flakey at times. I do miss the multitone other detector have. This one does have two tones but only in the relic mode. I might have researched it more and gone with the MXT PRO over this one in the beginning. I wish someone who really understands this machine would write a book on just finding gold rings. I have heard so many opinions on sounds, VDI's, headphone selection. It gets kinda confusing.
