  1. If this has been posted here already I missed it, sorry. But, wow...
  2. I saw some of the guys in Australia make a Trumpet to deflect the sound upward from the speaker on the sdc. Great idea, but shipping was a bit much, so I cut a 90 pcv fitting in half and used velcroe to attach. Cheap little project and does add a noticeable increase in sound coming up from the speaker.
  3. Hillside Detecting for Placer Gold Nuggets Armed with a Minelab SDC 2300 and a White's Gold Master V-Sat Jeff and Gary (Two Toe's) try some Hillside detecting for Placer Gold Nuggets. High bench gold in the morning and River deposited gold in the afternoon. We moved a lot of rocks and brush looking for those elusive Nuggets and didnt go home empty handed !!! Our Hawaiian buddy Tim ( Blue Lead Gold Productions ) likes to send me pictures and video of what we are missing on the island during the winter months so I've included a few clips from him in the video. Hope you enjoy the vide
  4. Hi! Another classic question,but i have a ctx3030 with 17inch coil and do mostly detecting in the saltwater.It goes deep and thats what i'm looking for,depth,,I know that SDC2300 is a PI machine and very sensitive to gold.But when it comes to depth comparison in saltwater and knowing the SDC2300 has 8 inch coil,then the question is which detector goes deeper?is it worth buying that expensive unit just for saltwater beahhunting?
  5. I bought a house in meadview about 4 years ago. Every couple months when I go there I try to get over to gold basin to do some detecting or drywashing. It took me a couple years to find my first nugget out there and its been a couple of years since then and I havent found another. I swing an SDC and I've read people have done pretty good out there with that model. I find plenty of lead and boot tacks a inch or two down but not much deeper than that. What settings are people using out there? How deep down are people finding the gold? Would I be better off with a different model that ca
  6. Here's the 1st video Minelab USA did for TV. You might know the English sounding dude from FL. What's interesting is we were able to see Minelab Mine Detector as it turned into a gold detector. The comments towards the end about seeing what's in the ground before you dig it, I'm still waiting. Do you feel, we'll see a detector that can actually see the item or at least the shape of it with any accuracy and if so how long out?
  7. Glad to see Simon is back. I know there are previous posts about SDC battery compartment seal, I had problems with mine this summer. Here is the background that I have posted about before. I dredge in an old cut that wasn’t cleaned that good into the bedrock. The bedrock is a quartz muscovite schist that through frost shattering and dissolution is deeply weathered making it easy to dredge into for a couple of feet. Because it is a cut the water is always murky and work is done by feel. A couple of years ago I dug a big section that I thought was cleaned up. Previously
  8. With the fantastic weather in the Rye Patch region during the month of October, I was chomping at the bit to get down there, but my summer job didn't end until the 30th. It still took me a few days afterward to get everything wrapped up, so I finally hit the road and met up with Gerry and friends at Rye Patch the following Tuesday. The detector training class we were scheduled to give that weekend ended up being cancelled, thanks to a winter storm that was forecast to move into the area on Friday. Needless to say, having only two days of optimal detecting conditions before being snowed out and
  9. Four used ones advertised on The Classifieds in the last couple days, one sold already. Seems like Gerry’s circle of people... you know something the rest of us do not know Gerry?
  10. Hi there fellow yella hunters, ive been prospecting for gold & gems for about 5yrs now in nth nsw.Have mostly been alluvial working with sluice & pan.Found some ok gold, enough to keep me interested.Thought i wld step up to a detector to enter a new & exciting chapter in my prospecting journey.Ended up buying a brand new sdc 2300, i was so excited & proud of my new acquisition.As soon as i unboxed it i had an uneasy feeling with all the screaching & wailing as soon as i switched it on.I persisted with all the best advice & did get it to settle.I am on my second detectin
  11. OK so apparently I don't have a good understanding of what type of metal my detector and find. I've only had my SDC for a week or so and I'm new to metal detecting. I put two of girlfriend's earrings on the surface of some soil and here are the results: White gold (or platinum I'm not totally sure) earring: SDC doesn't sound off at all 14K gold earring: SDC produces a very faint sound Again the earrings were on the surface of the soil. My detector is finding things like bullets, nails, aluminum foil, etc just fine. I also buried an old gold plated tooth about 6 to 8 inche
  12. First off... Really liking my SDC so far and have only about 18-20hrs on it so far. Most places I hunt are pretty trashy so the Goldmonster is usually my weapon of choice. My question regarding the SDC is about threshold change over targets. I've been finding myself usually only digging targets when the threshold goes from a steady tone to a higher in pitch and softer tone? When I get a lower in pitch signal tone from the steady threshold I find myself passing on these lower than threshold pitch signal tones? In your opinion am I on to something as far as trash or gold? I'm basically lazy
  13. Hey guys I just got my new SDC last week. I see a lot of folks on youtube using a cover for the control box portion of the metal detector. Is this something any of you guys use? If so, can you recommend a particular one? Thanks! PS, I plan on taking this detector with me backpacking.

  15. Minelab are excited to release a new enhanced version of the the popular Minelab SDC 2300 metal detector. With availability from mid-June, the new enhanced SDC 2300 will now include re-designed headphones, an armrest protector and a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery. A clip-on coil joint protector has been added to the swivel joint for added protection of the coil joint while detecting.

  16. My question is not a substitute for the WM08 , what I would like to do its match it with a non ML Transmitter, is anything available? Background: Wifes 2300 did not come with Bluetooth Headphones like the Nox or a better, the Z's WM12 speaker with Headphone jack. I have set up an ebay Bluetooth Transmitter on the 2300 and a ebay Bluetooth receiver connected to the dealer supplied amplifier carried in her back pack to drive a speaker on her shoulder. The Transmitter and Receiver are the Bluetooth V2.1 + EDR which I understand is faster with less latency that the Bluetooth V4 or V5 but
  17. First time out with my new SDC and the damn thing shorts out every time I set it down or bump it? Then it starts it's warm up all over again and I continue to hunt until I gently bump it or set it down again? Seems to have got better towards end of 4 hr hunt where I only dug about 35 targets (no gold). It might be the batteries not making good connection but I did have the trap door completely shut. Anyone else ever have this issue before with the SDC???? Hate to have to send it in...…
  18. My favorite detector looks to have just gotten a lot better with Coilteks new line of coils for the Minelab SDC 2300. Not sure how it works changing coils yet but I’m excited. Now I just need a 10” coil for the Zed. https://www.coiltek.com.au/coils/gold-extreme/
  19. OK, I`ve found the courage, I think, Stripped the SDC right down the C/Bs with pot switches, coil plug, H/Dphone plug complete as per image below weighs 216 grams. This section complete with a couple of 3.7v LiPos hard wired in with the Pro-Sonic transmitter also hard wired, giving 3 Mini USB female plugs to charge .LiPos will be probably rectangular type that have their BMS in cooperated. Doubt I`ll used the SDC coil shaft as whilst it is quality feels heavy compared to say the GPX shaft. Anyway I`m "pissing into the wind" until tis a goer so will post back once and if it survives
  20. This poll is designed to see who is currently using either the Minelab SDC or GPZ detectors with a component of identifying anyone who actively uses both. (I hypothesize there may be a selection bias in this forum in favor of more detectorists who use the GPZ even though sales of the SDC are much higher.)
  21. I just got a screaming deal on a SDC 2300. So just inquiring if anyone has any more experiences with the aftermarket coiltek coils? I'm seriously thinking about getting some to make the SDC a patch hunting machine.
  22. Anyone have any ideas why an SDC2300 may not be powering up?? We have used 2 different sets of batteries that work fine in another unit. Not much to troubleshoot except the batteries and off/on switch. {{{SOLVED}}}}}}} Was working fine when it was last used. Hate to send it to Minelab---they may be tiring of me….. 😏
  23. I would like to start a thread of peoples opinions on what they found between these two machines with various coils. I love my SDC and have found my biggest and smallest gold with it (8”). My GPZ has definitely gone deeper for gold (14”). I am about even on the total count for each, weight a being different story. I understand that if you only have one detector then you want coil options, but if you got both I wonder what would be a better bang for your buck? A 10” Xcoil at $1000 or a 11”Coiltek at $310. Thats if they compare at depth and sensitivity. Norvic I would love for you
  24. My Order of Coils for the SDC-2300 landed. I'll be shipping Friday and Saturday. Let me know which ones you want and be sure to get a Hardware Kit too. I look forward to hearing and seeing your Success. Photo is one of my Field Staff and some of the SDC-2300 gold he found with the stock coil. Just wait until he gets to swing one with the other coils. Gerry's Metal Detectors
