Ian Aitken

Sales and Training

Ian has been at Miners Den in Adelaide for almost 5 years now, after working at Minelab for 30 years plus. He has wealth of knowledge on most of all the Minelab Metal Detectors as well as some other brands / models.

“Personally, I prefer gold prospecting and I currently own a GPX 5000 but also own a CTX 3030 for when I want to hunt coins & jewellery. I started out as a teenager panning & sluicing & have been detecting since the mid-1980’s.  When I’m not out detecting, I enjoy bike riding & golf”

Shane Conlin

Sales Representative

Shane has been working for Miners Den Adelaide for 3 years as a sales representative. I have a keen interest in the Australian bush, so when the opportunity came to join Miners Den I was keen to get involved with this very professional team.

“I had previously been involved in the automotive industry for over 40 year, so this technical background has helped make the transition to metal detecting / prospecting an interesting and enjoyable experience.

My favourite Minelab detector has to be the Equinox 800. It is a great detector for people who are new to detecting, giving them the opportunity to experience both gold detecting or coin & relic hunting.

When I’m not in the shop I enjoy gardening and travel.”
