Minelab SDC 2300

SDC 2300

September 08, 2014 08:00am

I have recently purchased a Minelab SDC 2300 from Pilbara Prospecting Supplies and left for a short trip to the Pilbara.   

I am writing because I am so impressed with the machine and its performance.

Within minutes of tuning and using it, I found my first small nugget of gold. As I hadn’t been prospecting for approximately 8 years I was quite surprised and thought someone had missed a piece.  

To my amazement, I found another 8 small nuggets within another 30 minutes. Obviously others had missed this little patch. I moved onto an area that I knew had been well worked, even with the Minelab 5000 series. To my amazement, I again started picking up small pieces of gold.  I thought to myself, this is some machine.

Bling in the sand !!

Our local beaches cut for a few days last week thanks to a howling east wind and big swell. I managed to pull some gold out after a six month sanded in period. The CTX 3030 with the 17' coil took care of business.

Ring Find.jpg

Darren and Michelle were over the moon when they heard the news in the morning that their ring had been recovered 10 days after it was lost. They are not local to this area having been on holiday but they were keen to make the journey back to collect their lost wedding ring. It was decided to meet on the beach where it was found and they were able to tell me in detail of the moment it was lost and I the moment it was recovered. They explained that on the day it was lost a group of friends had searched for 3 hours in an attempt to recover it.

minelab detector finds roman figure.JPG

We said goodbye and I walked with detector on towards my car at the border side, and on the spot where we all walked a few times and met at the start i received a beautiful loud tone....and digging 32 centimeters deep i did the found of my life....a bronze roman statue. I search for 32 years and this was my happiest metal detecting moment of my life...
I reported the found to the Archaeological service for identification, and this came back.

17th century coin out of the San Francisco Bay

CTX 3030

17th century coins.jpg

It’s interesting that these coins were found around 100m apart (and a couple of years).

The San Francisco Bay was discovered by Europeans (Spain) back in 1769, and both coins predate this discovery. If a Chinese ship made it into the bay prior to 1769, that would be very interesting. But there are many other possibilities as to why these relatively old coins were found at the same bay site.

As with the E-TRAC, I’m very pleased with the CTX 3030.

Good Things Come When You Help!

CTX 3030

August 22, 2014 10:00am

When we got to my house and I washed the brass object off my eyes almost popped as I could see the words Abraham Lincoln! I knew immediately what it was as I have seen pictures of a couple others that had been dug. It is the 1860 Presidential token/medallion that had the tintype photos of Lincoln and his running mate Hannibal Hamlin inserted. Of course after being in the ground for at least a hundred years the tin types were rusted out but still I was pleased with this historic item!

Pile of yellow in the scoop!

Excalibur II

August 22, 2014 09:00am

Pine said he was going to be there as well and he was. I am a touch taller so I was able to get a touch deeper but it only yielded a few clad coins. after a bit my arm was throbbing and I went shallow so my shorts could dry. Pine and I were chatting and swing pretty much next to each other when he got a signal we both thought was going to pan out to be nice. But it ended up being a bling earring. About 10 to 15 feet away I got a foil signal on the Excalibur II and figured it was going to be another foil safety seal from a bottle. Well I shook the scoop and saw the glimmer of a GOLD pile in the scoop. I think I shouted at that point. Well it is a SWEET 26in 15.3 grams (total weight) 14k chain and Dolphin pendant. I ended up with $4.44 in clad an earring and GOLD!!! Just awesome!!!

The SDC and Me

SDC 2300

August 21, 2014 09:00am

If you’re looking for a prospecting machine that can go anywhere, ignore hot rocks and hot ground while sniffing out the smallest of nuggets, then look no further. The SDC lives up to the hype and then some. This machine will become a staple in any prospectors tool set. I’ve nicknamed named mine “Ole Blue, The Skunk Chaser” because I have yet to get “skunked” while using it.
