$12,000.00 Ring Returned!


May 05, 2014 10:00am

What are the chances I'd be reading the lost section on Craigs List and go find the ring? that's just what I did. Let me start by thanking Minelab for making the best detectors on the market today. I've owned 16 Minelabs and all were great. I now hunt with a GT and Excalibur. 

I contacted the girl on Craigs List to get a better idea of where on Tybee Beach she lost the ring. She was on a float tube in front of life guard stand #4 about waist deep. on the 4th day of hunting I got that sweet sound of Gold! 4 scoops later, there it was in my scoop! I got out of the water and sent a pic of it to her... she was so happy. that evening she drove 3 hrs to pick it up. she was very happy to get it back as she had just gotten it a week before. oh and I was happy too with the $2,000.00 Reward!!! now I can buy another Excalibur!

Knowing that Detecting is my passion... My amazing fiancée told me to do some detecting on our destination wedding to MoBay Jamaica. So the CTX3030 was packed and off we went. I had several days of Great Detecting on the Montego Bay beaches, scoring 3 gold rings, 4 silver rings gold and silver Neck chains and an array of other jewelry. all this and a beautiful Flawless wedding ceremony.

Earlier this month I had the opportunity to help make someone’s Easter.  My hunting partner Brandon  “Dr. Tones” Niece called to say an acquaintance, Molly, had just phoned him in a panic.  “We kind of have an emergency man”, he said.  Molly’s sister had lost a piece of jewelry outside during their Easter gathering.  Everyone else was still busy with family dinners but Brandon knew I was spending Easter alone.  “Is there any chance you could run out tonight and take a look?”, he asked.  Besides being the right thing to do; my choice was made easier since it would give me an excuse to quit working on our broken sprinkler system.

First detection

parc St Sacrement-bague base Ste Foy-1.jpg

I bought a X-TERRA 705 this winter and waited till last week to use it because in Quebec, winter has been cold and snowy. I had never used a metal detector before, except 30 years ago, with my uncle, when we dug a 1 meter deep hole in my grand-parents back-yard to find a big iron sheet.

So this week, I have detected in 2 local parks (about 10 hours in total) and I liked the thrill to discover (modern) coins. I m starting to get to know my detector and it seems a very good machine!

1966 high school class ring found and returned to owner

A 1966 ring-2.JPG

A few months ago I and a detecting friend were using our E-TRACs at an old school playground about 120 miles from home when I got this interesting and strong signal. The thought came to me, "10,000 pull tabs for each gold ring" and when I got to it, BINGO, this long lost class ring popped out! After nearly three months of research and many contacts, I was finally successful in returning the 1966 class ring to its rightful owner. Priceless!!!

Take a Bite out of Detecting


April 16, 2014 08:00am
gold teeth.JPG

Out detecting an old picnic grove from the early 1900 in northern New Jersey when my E-TRAC shows a 12-12. So I dug a plug about 8' down and see a piece of gold foil, after pulling it out of the hole I turned it over and saw the teeth marks. I found someone's gold dental caps. Passed over the hole again and pulled out an old beer bottle cap. Guess he used his teeth to open the beer.

Jáchymov - Cradle U.S. dollar

CTX 3030

April 07, 2014 08:00am

I'm trying everything possible, so I wanted to find nuggets. As you walking in Australia or America. But there is a problem - nowhere near us has gold. In our region, however, since the Middle Ages silver was mined. I have read a few clever books and found the nearest possible location. I chose Jáchymov.

In the area are pure crystalline silver and the local silver veins often based directly on the surface and Schottenbergu (now Castle Hill) and Türckenbergu (today around dimensions guards and hats) were reportedly even finding the 'grass' or in the roots of uprooted trees and with a little luck we might be able to kick some nice coin. Maybe rare Jáchymov thaler.
