Minelab MANTICORE Metal Detector



MANTICORE with Multi-IQ+ is the most powerful, fastest, and precise metal detector in Minelab’s history. The heart of MANTICORE is its super-charged Simultaneous Multi-Frequency (MULTI-IQ+) engine. This feat of innovation generates an incredible 50% power increase over the best-selling detector series of all time: EQUINOX. When combined with advanced 2D Target Identification (ID) and rich audio options, the detectorist has every bit of vital information arriving at their eyes and ears. MANTICORE is an unrivalled detecting experience that pushes the boundaries of detecting to deliver more power, more depth, and more finds.

Multi-IQ+ is the newest generation Simultaneous Multi-Frequency engine from Minelab, building on the success of the original Multi-IQ. Multi-IQ+ transmits more power through the coil at a wider range of operating frequencies, to light up more targets in the ground. It has completely revamped signal processing providing enhanced discrimination, greater Target ID resolution, improved target separation, and gives you a greater ability to tune discrimination and audio to suit your detecting conditions.

Find desired targets amongst ferrous trash like no other detector on the market with MANTICORE’s exceptional target separation performance.

Exceeding expectations with every swing, MANTICORE delivers improved Target ID stability and close target separation. With customizable Ferrous Limits you have unprecedented control to accept ferrous coins, reject complex ferrous targets, or dial in maximum target unmasking in iron.

1.3 kg / 2.9 lb with an extended length of 1440 mm / 56.7 and a collapsible length of 630 mm / 24.8 inch.

MANTICORE delivers 10 customizable Search Modes including All-Terrain optimised for inland detecting; Beach optimised for sand, surf and seawater zones; and Goldfield optimised for detecting gold nuggets.

Take control of audio with MANTICORE. Hear target information the way you like it via superior audio controls including customisable target tones, suppression of Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) chatter and Continuous Pitch (VCO) audio with ferrous tones and genuine threshold detection tone.

No terrain is off limits with MANTICORE — dive up to 5 m (16 ft) for underwater exploration (IP68 Rating) to find hidden targets others can’t reach.

Having cutting-edge technology inside our Minelab machines is only half the story. Making MANTICORE’s power easy to access is equally as important. That’s why MANTICORE features a large colour screen and delivers the most intuitive user experience ever found on a detector.

There may be a storm raging outside but inside MANTICORE it’s quiet and calm. Improved EMI rejection means it’s possible to operate using higher sensitivity whilst isolating target information — even in the most challenging environmental conditions.

The daylight may have ended, but that doesn’t mean your hunt has to. With Control Pod Flashlight, Display Backlight with Auto Adjust, and Backlit Keypad, plus Handgrip Vibration, you can power on long after the sun has gone.
