Find elusive sub-gram nuggets on land & underwater! 
The SDC 2300 is a high performance mid-range gold detector, perfect for chasing down those elusive sub-gram nuggets on land and underwater.  This compact waterproof detector comes with easy-to-use controls and is assembly-free. 

Quickly find more gold patches and more gold nuggets!
This amazing 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 

Minelab quality, one-piece assembly free design.
The SDC 2300’s mechanical platform is seriously designed and tested to military standards. Our R&D experts have picked the best suitable materials and ensured the product is easy to maneuver and operate. 

Compact and lightweight for ease of use.
“Like a kid at Christmas I tore the box open and lifted out my new toy – a Minelab SDC 2300 detector. There is not a box full of parts to assemble, just this little detector all folded up, and nothing quite prepares a person for just how small the SDC 2300 is the first time you see it.”

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 mineralized 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.

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.

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 - VIC, Australia

Military grade construction, one piece detector designed to perform in the toughest conditions. No assembly required.

SDC 2300

Easy Patch Hunting

Search quickly and efficiently in hard to reach and remote places to find those elusive gold bearing clustered deposits.

mpf technology

MPF TechnologyMPF (Multi Period Fast) technology incorporates extremely fast Pulse Induction switching between Transmit (Tx) and Receive (Rx) detector signals. Therefore minimal residual transmit signal is present during the receive cycle, enabling clear sharp detection of very small gold.

Expert Reviews

“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.” - Bruce Candy [Chief Scientist Minelab Electronics, GPX & SDC Inventor] “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, GPX & SDC Inventor] “I ran it over some spots with nasty ground mineralization and it just ignored the ground and the hot rocks - but it didn’t ignore the gold.  I ended up with 8 nuggets for 2.7 grams on the first day out with the SDC, and 6 nuggets for 2.1 grams on the second day..“  - Chris - California, USA“I’m not going to claim nothing else would have found it but this little 0.67 gram piece is the sort of gold the SDC was made for and it banged out loud and clear at a few inches.” - Steve - California, USAThis new “Super Detector” from Minelab will be living permanently behind the seat of my 4x4, just waiting to be unfolded and let loose on those unsuspecting gold “nugglets”.   - Jonathan - QLD, Australia“More recently I got to test the SDC back on my home turf in Queensland where I’d spent 4 solid hours detecting a month or so earlier with [another brand detector] for no gold! I knew in my heart there was gold there but the effects of extreme variable mineralisation and high voltage power lines had taken their toll, not so with the SDC 2300. First nugget came within seconds, 2 hours later and I had 14 nuggets in my hand for 4.5 grams of gold.“ - Jonathan - QLD, Australia
