SDC Gold 5 Feb 15.jpg

Yesterday I went to a place near my town and managed to find 4 nuggets with SDC 2300. They're 0.3, 0.4, 0.6 and 3.9 gram. The 3.9 gram nugget, I found at the depth of about 6-8 inches. I have also attached a photo to show you. Thank you Valentis for helping me to own this great detector

Successful day in Adelaide Goldfields

SDC 2300

February 08, 2015 08:00am

Had a lovely half day detecting in the Adelaide Goldfields today. In particular the Gumeracha Goldfields. Went to a spot I haven't detected before, and concentrated on areas just below a reef. There was quite a lot of bird lead shot. On the second or third signal, out popped this lovely 1.3 gram solid gold iron stone specimen. My second largest for this goldfield. Thanks again Minelab for creating such a beautiful machine in the SDC 2300. Have now found over 5 nuggets in South Australia and over 50 in Victoria.

Last Trip for 2014

SDC 2300

January 02, 2015 08:00am

The grand total for the trip so far is now 23 bits for a total weight of 27 grams. Not too bad for a couple hours work. I decided it was time to return back to camp for more fluids and some- thing to eat. After the evening meal I was planning what was to happen in the early morning before it got too hot but the wind picked up and was blowing a gale and the salt was getting blown off the lake straight into camp which made it pretty uncomfortable, so it was time to pack up and think about heading home. By the time I had packed up camp it was 2200hrs so I moved away from the area found a sheltered spot and got some rest. There will be another day that I will return to that area and use the SDC2300.

minelab best metal detector finds gold pay for trip.jpg

But what you can’t put a price on was the fun we had finding those elusive little nugglets out in the warm sun of the Corner Country. Nor can you put a price on the incredible scenery that can be found all around Tibooburra.
Some of our favourite scenery can be seen while driving the back track off the Cameron’s Corner Road to Nuggety Gully through to Tunnel Hill, it is a photographers dream. Our three weeks in the Corner Country was extremely enjoyable and thanks to the SDC2300 we found enough gold to pay for our trip, what more could we ask for?

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.

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.

diamond ring found by SDC 2300

SDC 2300

August 01, 2014 08:00am

Wading over towards the sand bar I heard a faint break in the threshold, stopped to investigate and started to scoop. Two scoops later I saw this magnificent platinum engagement ring with a 1.5 carat diamond in my scoop.

You never know what you are going to see in your scoop when you use the SDC 2300 on the beach or in the water, but you do know that you are not going to miss any metal target your search coil passes over.

First Trip with SDC 2300 Strikes Big Gold Nuggets

SDC 2300

July 27, 2014 08:00am

Went to Nome, Alaska and stayed at AkAu Mine for a week. The tailings piles are from the earliest gold rush to Nome area. These have been pushed several times each year for the past three years and the SDC 2300 still produced some heavy nuggets there. I am very impressed with this rugged detector! Way to go Minelab you have a winner because it can stand up to the weather and rugged conditions of Nome prospecting.

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

SDC 2300

Video Success Story

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…
