The Minelab SD 2200D
Metal Detector
Gold Detector

The SD 2200D is the most sophisticated, intelligent detector that has ever been made for gold prospecting.
It gives superior performance and is incredibly easy to use, making this detector suitable for the first time hobbyist as well as the seasoned professional The sophistication of the automatic functions now allows maximum time and effort to be spent hunting targets. Many owners talk about how easy the SD 2200D is to use and how they are repeatedly finding gold in areas thought to be cleaned out using previous models.

Here are some of the reasons for this Increased performance - 

Deepest Detecting
everyone's talking about the fabulous depth

Automatic Ground Balance
maintains optimum ground balance so that you are detecting at maximum depth and sensitivity at all times

"Having owned an SD 2000 and two SD 2100's and now an SD 22000,1 went back to the areas where I had detected with the previous SD's. I found more nuggets with the SD 22000 in the same ground especially where it was hot ground (mineralized soil). There is definitely an improvement in hot and deep ground.  The photos are from a six-week trip which produced just over 16.5 ozs all using the SD 2200D. I generally work in highly mineralized ground and the SD 22000 has enabled me to find more gold in very hot ground."

"Since purchasing the SD 2200D, in 6 weeks I have gone over old spots in Clermont, Cloncurry, Tennant Creek and Halls Creek In each spot I have picked up several ounces that I missed with the other machines. This has proven tome that the SD 2200D is a far superior machine than the other SD's."

Les Hamilton
Western Australia

"My SD 2000 was an excellent detector, which I had great success with. When using the SD 2100, I found it to be more sensitive to smaller and deeper nuggets, the biggest was 48 grams. Now I have the SD 2200D. This detector is the ultimate. Within 1 hour of beginning with it, in an area considered to be worked out, I located a signal 24 hours later, my SD 2200D was still screaming over a hole 18 inches deep through solid rock. I finally unearthed a beautiful 20 oz nugget. Further nuggets from 0.5 gram upwards have also been located at regular intervals. I am the envy of my fellow prospectors."

SD 2200D

"Well, even though I initially had my doubts, 1 bought the new SD2200D not only to search for gold but also for antique relics. I went to a medieval settlement I knew of and where / had already found many small objects with the Musketeer. The surrounds of this settlement have been regularly visited by relic hunters for the past 10 years. Today it has been so well searched that there is hardly a chance to find anything, unless the detector is able to penetrate to deeper levels. I turned on the SD and started the hunt, whereby I have to say that the SD is well capable of excluding surface scrap iron. If the iron is deeper you'll recognize it by digging the surface. Well, I started and already after the first few meters I got a good signal. I started to dig and found a Roman silver denarius at a depth of almost 35cm, unbelievable. I continued searching and with every meter I got more signals. I dug and found a bronze coat pin at almost 40cm. Then I unearthed a bronze, partly silver-plated Luna pendant. And it went on like that. In three hours I found more than 15 valuable antique relics as well as many bronze relics. The deepest relic was a bronze dagger at a depth of almost 80cm. The most astounding thing was that I had only moved a few meters. This meant that this spot was virginal again. The detectors of other, treasure hunters were too weak to penetrate into 3,000 year old strata. I handed the finds to the local museum and caused a small sensation. The bronze dagger originated from the Bronze Age approximately 2000 BC, therefore the dagger was almost 4,000 years old. This meant that this settlement already existed approximately 4,000 years ago and not, as assumed, originated in medieval times. I must say that the SD2200D is the most powerful detector available today. It is able to penetrate into soil levels which really contain antiquities. It might well be of interest for archaeologists.

Field Testing the SD 2200D

"The new SD 22000 provides significant improvements over previous models, including automatic ground balancing, push-button noise reduction, and iron discrimination. When compared to other gold hunting detectors, the SD 2200D is expensive, somewhat awkward to swing and it is heavy. However, it clearly finds gold deeper than other detectors especially in really hostile environments containing black sand and hot rocks. For serious nugget hunters the added depth and other enhancements clearly outweigh the negatives. It is a pleasure to use simply because one doesn't have to fight the abundance of false signals normally associated with nugget hunting. Gone are the strong reactions to large pieces of magnetite, the SD basically ignores them. If the detector responds with a reasonably strong signal, one can be almost assured the object is not a rock, but is a piece of metal, hopefully gold. For the really serious gold hunter, the SD 22000 is one detector to seriously investigate. Simply stated, it does a great job of finding gold. As such, I can heartily recommend this detector to the serious nugget hunter who wants a truly deep seeking machine."
