First Trip With the SDC

Post by shorty on Mon 01 Dec 2014, 10:29 pm

I thought I would share our experience with the SDC.
Earlier this year we found a patch which produced over 140 nuggets.
I found the patch with my 5000 and 18” Round Nugget Finder Coil.
Next June ran her 4500 firstly with a 12” Round Nugget Finder and then after raking several areas she used the Joey Coil.
We purchased our SDC last week so as we had 5 days off we thought we would go back to the patch  and see what the SDC could pick up.
After going over all of the raked areas the SDC only found 2 pieces .07 and .20 in ironstone, the targets were very clear and crisp.
The 4500 did a great job on this patch, we will see if the SDC can find more on other patches next detecting season.

I certainly agree Chris a good operator of a 5k or a 4500 will get just about anything the SDC will find and its not a replacement but still a versatile companion to your kit. the toughness of its design and compactness makes it ideal for a lot of people and the ease of use will assist many to find gold. i tried mine out on the salt lakes around wongan hills on the way home and it was very stable and quiet. i quite liked it myself and will be great for Kas.
cheers for the report guys. nice couple of nuggets there. oh i got some ali bright and the species are dissolving quite fast and looking great.
