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.

Compact Size

Folds to small portable size, 8 ½ ” (216mm) by 16” (406mm).  Fits into carry-on luggage and most backpacks.  Minelab has designed a SDC 2300 carry bag show below, but this unit will fit in most outdoor type backpacks used today for hiking, backpacking and exploring.

Waterproof Capability

Fully submersible to 10’ (3m) for detecting riverbeds and shorelines allowing you to transition with ease from land to water. Now you can use your Minelab GOLD detector in all wet weather conditions allowing you to stay on the goldfields for longer, even in the rainy season.

Rugged & Assembly Free

Military grade construction, one piece detector designed to perform in the toughest conditions.  Very similar to Minelab’s F3 Military version metal detector.

The SDC 2300 gold detector performance is above the X-TERRA 705 and Eureka Gold and below the GPX Series. This detector offers an entry to Minelab’s Pulse Induction (PI) gold technology. It offers greater versatility in rugged terrains and for recovery of underwater gold because of its waterproof capability, ergonomic design and telescopic multi-position shaft.

2 reviews for Minelab SDC 2300 Gold Metal Detector “New Version” – 100% Waterproof

  1. [email protected]

    Great detector in a compact, easy to use package. Literally just an on/off switch and sensitivity switch. Anyone can use this powerful little detector to find gold. The small 8″ coil is particularly handy to use in bedrock, really easy to poke around boulders and crevices. The technology in this detector is unique in that it’ll find the nuggets that were too deep for VLF detectors and too small for PI detectors. The ultimate prospectors combo would be an SDC and a GPZ for cleaning all the gold out of old nugget patches.

    This is a super little machine that can pick up most anything a 7000 can find if you are in shallower circumstances. Also if the ground is damp and there are storms around it performs in many ways easier and better than the 7000. Yes, the coil head is smaller, but overall the 2300 has lots of features that make it a great buy. First is the size and weight; then comes ease of use with a very easy learning curve and finally, it is waterproof. Gotta love it.

    As always, Rob provides simply the best customer service and is always available to answer questions. I would not buy from anyone else.
