The SDC 2300 is a high performance mid-range gold detector perfect for chasing down those elusive sub-gram nuggets on land and underwater. This compact waterproof detector comes with easy-to-use controls and is assembly-free. 

Folds to small portable size, 8.5” (216mm) by 15.7” (400mm).  Fits into carry-on luggage and most backpacks.

Waterproof Capability

Fully submersible to 10’ (3m) for detecting riverbeds and shorelines, allowing you to transition with ease from land to water. 

Rugged & Assembly Free

Military grade construction, one piece detector designed to perform in the toughest conditions. No assembly required.

Easy Patch Hunting

Search quickly and efficiently in hard to reach and remote places to find those elusive gold bearing clustered deposits.

MPF Technology

MPF (Multi Period Fast) technology incorporates extremely 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.

Minelab quality, one-piece assembly free design

The SDC 2300’s mechanical platform is seriously designed and tested to military standards. Our R&D experts have picked the best suitable materials and ensured the product is easy to maneuver and operate. 

Powerful Performance

Minelab's scientists and engineers have 'challenged the best'.

Inspired by the MPS technology used in our flagship GPX detectors, Minelab’s scientists and engineers have ‘challenged the best’ and successfully developed new MPF technology (Multi Period Fast) for the SDC 2300.

SDC 2300 is 'unbeatable' in this mid-range PI class.

Field tests have proven that the SDC 2300 will find much smaller gold than the GPX 5000, and all VLF detectors, in heavily mineralized ground conditions. Field testers have reported that other brand detectors are far below this level of performance and have demonstrated the SDC 2300 is ‘unbeatable’ in this mid-range high performance PI class.
More Sensitive

The SDC 2300 is very sensitive to small gold scattered in heavily mineralized ground.

This gold is often missed by prospectors with both VLF and PI detectors because of the difficult ground conditions and fine gold size. You can now detect the small gold missed in previously searched areas. These small gold finds can lead the way to new patches and bigger gold deposits.
