TIBOOBURRA GOLD

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

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

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

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

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

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…

Finding gold with the SDC 2300

SDC 2300

SDC_gold04.jpg

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.
