Can a uboat or ship avoid naval mines through speed?

So say theoretically theres a uboat or german ship (destroyers for eg) that can run at 25 knots or more

is it possible that the uboat would or ship would have travelled far away enough from the naval mine before it detonates even if it passes directly above the mine?

and im always curious as to whats the lethal kill range of naval mines used against uboats in ww2 as well :D
