Default A good gold detector

Hi, I am from Australia and new to this forum. I own a minelab 3500gp and use it exclusively for gold detecting. I have been successful and found quite a lot of gold. I am nearing retirement and want to purchase a second detector for my wife and then travel to remote areas and search for more yellow metal. Nearly every serious prospector in Aust. uses a minelab and they say that nothing else can do the job. Our soils are heavily mineralised. Is there another detector out there that can match minelab for my purpose? I can find nuggets of less than a gram under 3-4 inches of mineralised soil, can anything else do that?
