Minelab SDC 2300 Gold Detector
All Terrain Gold Detecting
The SDC 2300 is a compact high performance mid-range gold detector perfect for chasing down elusive sub-gram nuggets on land & underwater
This compact waterproof detector comes with easy-to-use controls and is assembly-free. Quickly find more gold patches and more gold nuggets!
The SDC 2300 was field tested by Minelab professional testers in real gold fields (heavily mineralised) and delivered proven results."SDC 2300 strikes gold in field test land previously hunted by another (brand) midrange machine" - Minelab field tester
“You will find more small nuggets and fine-threaded specimen gold in mineralised soils with the SDC 2300 than any other gold detector, including the GPX 5000.”
“The SDC’s unique advantage is ultra-low ground noise in mineralised and saline soils AND very high sensitivity to fine gold and fine targets (like chains) at the beach.”
- Bruce Candy [Chief Scientist Minelab Electronics, SDC Inventor]
Folds to small portable size, 8.5” (216mm) by 15.7” (400mm). Fits into carry-on luggage, tough cases and most backpacks.
Fully submersible to 10’ (3m) for detecting riverbeds and shorelines, allowing you to transition with ease from land to water.
RUGGED & ASSEMBLY FREE
Military grade construction, one piece detector designed to perform in the toughest conditions. No assembly required.
EASY PATCH HUNTING
Search quickly and efficiently in hard to reach and remote places to find those elusive gold bearing clustered deposits.
The SDC 2300 is very sensitive to small gold scattered in heavily mineralised ground. This gold is often missed by prospectors with both VLF and PI detectors because of the difficult ground conditions and fine gold size. You can now detect the small gold missed in previously searched areas. These small gold finds can lead the way to new patches and bigger gold deposits.
The SDC 2300 gold detector audio response provides discrimination in the form of pitch and tone when the coil passes over ferrous or non-ferrous targets, similarly with amplitude and duration for shallow and deep targets. A louder, shorter sound will indicate a shallow target while a quieter, broader sound will indicate the presence of a deep, large target. A target that sounds off multiple times each swing will invariably be a near-surface or surface target.
Minelab quality, one-piece assembly free design. The SDC 2300’s mechanical platform has been designed and tested to military standards. Our R&D experts have selected high quality materials and ensured the product is easy to manoeuvre and operate.SDC 2300 is compact and lightweight for ease of use.
Minelab's scientists and engineers have 'challenged the best'. Inspired by the MPS technology used in our flagship GPX detectors, Minelab’s scientists and engineers have ‘challenged the best’ and successfully developed new MPF technology (Multi Period Fast) for the SDC 2300.
SDC 2300 is 'unbeatable' in this mid-range PI class. Field tests have proven that the SDC 2300 will find much smaller gold than the GPX 5000, and all VLF detectors, in heavily mineralised ground conditions. Field testers have reported that other brand detectors are far below this level of performance and have demonstrated the SDC 2300 is ‘unbeatable’ in this mid-range high performance PI class.
It will open up all of the old fields that were previously thought worked out:
“It was found in an area that we have been using for training in the Whipstick Forest (Bendigo) for the last 15 years - The piece weighed 0.05 grams and was recovered at a depth of about 2 inches... Fantastic machine - It will open up all of the old fields that were previously thought worked out” -Dave, Victoria, Australia
