SDC 2300 beats any other mid-range: Anything less is a gamble
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.|
Compact and lightweight for ease of use.
“Like a kid at Christmas I tore the box open and lifted out my new toy – a Minelab SDC 2300 detector. There is not a box full of parts to assemble, just this little detector all folded up, and nothing quite prepares a person for just how small the SDC 2300 is the first time you see it.”
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.|
The SDC 2300 is very sensitive to small gold scattered in heavily mineralised 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.|
It will open up all of the old fields that were previously thought worked out.
“It was found in an area that we have been using for training in the Whipstick Forest (Bendigo) for the last 15 years - The piece weighed 0.05 grams and was recovered at a depth of about 2 inches... Fantastic machine - It will open up all of the old fields that were previously thought worked out” Dave - VIC, Australia
