About us / The Owner


 The SDC 2300 is a compact high performance mid-range gold detector perfect for chasing down elusive sub-gram nuggets on land & underwater.

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.

The SDC 2300’s mechanical platform has been designed and tested to military standards. Our R&D experts have selected high quality materials and ensured the product is easy to maneuver and operate.

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

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

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

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

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.

The SDC 2300 gold detector audio response provides discrimination in the form of pitch and tone when the coil passes over ferrous or non-ferrous targets, similarly with amplitude and duration for shallow and deep targets. A louder, shorter sound will indicate a shallow target while a quieter, broader sound will indicate the presence of a deep, large target. A target that sounds off multiple times each swing will invariably be a near-surface or surface target.
