They say the best things come in small packages! This is certainly true for the SDC 2300. It’s compact, waterproof and built to perform in the toughest conditions. Undiscovered gold patches on land and underwater won’t stand a chance when the Minelab SDC 2300 gold detector makes its debut.

The SDC 2300 is a high performance mid-range gold detector, perfect for chasing down those elusive sub-gram nuggets both on land and underwater.  From Minelab, the company that knows Gold, this compact waterproof gold detector comes with easy-to-use controls and is assembly-free! Let the versatility of the SDC 2300 open up a whole new range of possibilities for finding more gold nuggets!    Field testers have reported that this all new machine is more sensitive to small gold than any other detector on the market today - PI or VLF - and its even more sensitive than its "big brother", the GPX 5000!   If you are hunting patches of very small fine gold, this is the detector for you.  So you know it performs, but combine this with a very compact form factor plus easy to use controls and it is easy to see why the SDC 2300 will be the gold hunting detector of choice for years to come. 


Here is an interesting discussion from American Digger's Relic Roundup on June 9, 2014 with Gary Schafer from Minelab Americas discussing the new SDC 2300
