Clicking on the links at the top gives you access to great features that will help you find your "find of a lifetime", such as historic maps, instructional videos and much more. If you own or are considering purchasing a metal detector you will find helpful information on the "tips" page. Minelab users will find an array of useful information on the site... and more will be coming soon!
Remember to visit the Web Store for metal detecting accessories. More hard to find metal detecting related products will be added in the near future.
Feel free to browse the photo galleries featuring my own metal detecting finds. Nearly all of these finds were dug within 30 miles of my home, and many were within a mile!
I hope you find the information useful and look forward to hearing your feedback!
June 2015- This past weekend was my first time out in over a year with my trusty Minelab Excalibur 1000. My old battery was no longer recharging, so this past winter I invested in a water resistant AA pack and did my best to waterproof it for use in the surf by applying some plumbers putty around the gasket. I got to test the seal out pretty quickly, after someone came running up to tell me that his wedding ring had slipped off in the rough waves of the incoming tide. A quick search and recovery... after about 5 minutes in chest deep water, I got the ring in the scoop (on the first try)! The silver pendant in the photo above was found right next to the spot where my friends were relaxing under their umbrellas, so they got to watch first hand as I dug it. Then, only a few feet away, they watched as I dug the chain and crucifix as well!
