They say the best things come in small packages! This is certainly true for the SDC 2300. It’s compact, waterproof and built to perform in the toughest conditions. Undiscovered gold patches on land and underwater won’t stand a chance when the Minelab SDC 2300 gold detector makes its debut.

The SDC 2300 is a high performance mid-range gold detector, perfect for chasing down those elusive sub-gram nuggets both on land and underwater.  From Minelab, the company that knows Gold, this compact waterproof gold detector comes with easy-to-use controls and is assembly-free! Let the versatility of the SDC 2300 open up a whole new range of possibilities for finding more gold nuggets! 

"You will find more small nuggets and fine-threaded specimen gold in mineralized soils with the SDC 2300 than any other gold detector, including the GPX 5000." - Bruce Candy

What is MPF (Multi Period Fast) Technology - MPF incorportes extemely 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.
