Minelab X-Terra 505 Metal Detector


The Minelab X-Terra 505 is a high performance intermediate detector. An excellent machine for experienced detectorists who demand more advanced functionality and performance.

Multiple Frequencies : 3 kHz, 7.5 kHz, 18.75 kHz make the X-Terra a very versatile all-around metal detector for both high and low conductor metals like silver and gold.

Let the adventure’s begin!



Minelab X-Terra 505 Metal Detector with 9″ (7.5 kHz) Search Coil is a great  detector dedicated to coin, relic and treasure hunting. It has Manual Ground Balancing that allows a stable performance even in the toughest mineralized ground conditions.

The precision of its multi-segment notch discrimination makes it easy to eliminate “junk” and identify good targets. Recovery is further enhanced by the 505’s Depth indicator and rapid recovery Pinpoint function.


  • Minelab’s proprietary VFLEX technology, the new class of single frequency detectors – you can change the operating frequency simply by changing coils.
  • Compatible with low frequency (LF) 3kHz coils as well as medium 7kHz and high frequencies 18.75kHz. The LF coil option is ideal for hunting large, deep targets. All X-TERRA Coils can be used on the X-TERRA 505.
  • Increased Ground Balance capability, range now (0-50), allowing the user to adjust to ground mineralization.
  • Extra detecting pattern – Now features three preset detecting patterns, that can also be customised, plus All Metal mode.
  • Choice of 1,2,3 or 4 Tone ID’s plus Multi-tone Target ID (19) response options increasing your flexibility in deciding how target signals are represented.
  • Larger discrimination range allowing for finer discrimination of high conductive targets.
  • Increased Noise Cancel range, now 5 manual settings, allowing greater choice of detecting channel. Increased Target Volume Adjust range, now (0-30), allowing better target response.
  • Threshold adjustment, with a range of -5 to 25, allowing the user to set threshold to level where slight variations from either very small shallow, or very large deep, targets can be noticed.
  • Fast recovery Pin-Point with variable tone and graphical indicator.
  • Depth indicator, updates continuously, even in Pinpoint mode.
  • Positive reflective LCD display.
  • Runs on just 4 x AA batteries.
  • Ultra lightweight, balanced design (only 2.9lbs).
