50 Grams of gold with the SDC 2300

SDC 2300

Here is 50 grams of gold nuggets (1.6 troy ounces) found with the SDC 2300 in California and Alaska, USA. The largest piece is 3/4ths of an ounce. The gold was found over about two weeks detecting time.

Digging out my very first SDC nugget

I did squeeze out my very first SDC gold nugget and it was actually the biggest target of the day. It weighed in at a whopping 0.4-grams! OK, maybe noting to write home about, but gold is gold, and the fact that it came from an old patch was certainly noteworthy. The following day I revisited the patch once again and was able to pull yet another nugget. It was smaller than the first, but still gold nonetheless. The only thing about the SDC I struggled with a bit was the coil design. The angle (or position) at which it sits on the lower shaft is a bit odd, but I think in time it is one of those things a person can get used to. I will be doing a lot more testing in the days to come, but so far I think Minelab has once again produced an incredible PI gold machine…

83 Grams From 9 Nuggets at AKAU

I had long read about people finding nuggets in Alaska using a metal detector but only dreamed about being able to do so. I learned about Gaines Creek and tried to go there. But, by the time I tried to make it up to there, they had already closed to the public.

It looked like all the places open to the public that catered to nugget hunters had closed down for commercial mining. Then, I learned about Alaska Gold and Resort, AKAU, close to Nome, Alaska. I reserved 2 weeks at the end of June 2014.

The metal detector I used was a Minelab X-Terra 705 with the Gold Pack. On my 2nd day there, I found a nice 28 gram gold and quartz specimen. Then my luck turned cold for the next 5 days. However, I finally started to dig every signal, carefully check any hole for additional targets, and recover even the faintest of signals.

Finding gold with the SDC 2300

SDC 2300

July 07, 2014 05:00pm

I got out and did a little more prospecting with the SDC 2300, and got 3 more nuggets, total weight 2.5 grams. The more I use this detector the happier I am with it and its finding good gold for me. I took my brother in law out with me and with the external speaker gave him a few lessons in nugget detecting. There were a bunch of old 22 caliper brass shells at this one place, and I told him we needed to get these out of the way because they would shield us from hearing any smaller targets. Sure enough, we got them out of the way, and right in the middle of where they were was a fainter target. I told him that while larger nuggets would sound like those brass shells near the surface, most gold would sound like this fainter target. We dug it and it was the smallest of the three nuggets shown in the photo.

First Hunt with the Minelab SDC 2300

Using this new waterproof Pulse Induction gold detector I managed to score two nuggets. Keep in mind, this location has been hammered really well by various detectors including the GPX 5000. The detector has amazing sensitivity to small gold and still maintains great mineral immunity. Looking forward to packing this detector to some remote gold locations.

Just to be absolutely sure of my opinions/impressions/convictions of the SDC 2300 I went out for 3 hours to a new location not detected before with SDC and below are the results ..... I dug nothing but obvious targets that a new chum could easily hear.
