Time to watch targets

X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack

March 18, 2014 10:00am

Hi some time when my targets are watches down from the beach, I have a little wonder about who lost it, how he lost it, and maybe there is some history behind the watch, so it's a bit of a time travel thinking about lost objects and their history or past. In the picture the white face is a Roman quartz, black face is a Smith &Wesson with compass, gold one is a genuine Citizen, white face is a Compass, last one is a Swisstime, interesting collection no doubt X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack is what I use, anyway good luck and happy hunting, and don't forget to fill your holes, bush or beach thanks.

Find of a Lifetime

Saxon Find (Found nr Maidstone, Kent, England)

By Greg Sweetman (Nr Dover Kent, England)

Like any dig, there is always going to be that “what if?” that goes through your mind whenever you walk out onto that field. Never knowing what you are going to find is the reason why all of us addicted detectorists keep coming back for more. Fuelled every now and then by the ground giving up its secrets with a find, and sometimes something rather special.

Costa Rica Riches

X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack

March 05, 2014 11:00am

The Envision Festival in Uvita Costa Rica is a gathering of young earthy party people. My wife and I happened to be in the area 3 days after the closing of this yearly festival. We brought out X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack from Canada for this type of moment. For two days we were allowed to sweep the grounds with our 705. There was so much coin in the grass we had a hit every 2nd sweep. Mixed in with the coins were various bits of jewellery, silver earrings, silver ring, brass Buddha, silver necklaces, buttons, broaches, silver beads. The list goes on. It has been one of our best detecting moments ever. Check out concert grounds, festival sites, demonstration gatherings. etc. Thanks Minelab we are hooked on treasure hunting.

Lost in the Hawaii sand, a ring finds its way back to Alaska newlyweds

Excalibur II

March 05, 2014 10:00am

On vacation in Hawaii in November, Sam Simeon presented his girlfriend, Julie Douthit, with a ring. They told family members who were on vacation with them that they were going to get married as soon as they got back home to Glennallen. After that, the plan was for Julie to travel to San Diego where Sam is stationed with the Navy.

Sam, 20, and Julie, 19, are Glennallen High School sweethearts, king and queen of their senior prom in 2012.

Julie knew the ring was coming, she told me last week. They didn't have the means for a fancy wedding or for both of them to have wedding bands. Instead, there was just the engagement ring. She picked it out. It was made of gold with two heart-shaped birth stones, one emerald and one topaz. Their names were engraved inside along with the phrase, "Our love grows stronger." It wasn't until Julie slipped it on her finger in Hawaii, though, that she noticed the ring was just the tiniest bit too big.

My best finds with Minelab

My best finds with Minelab.docx

Hello everyone who is satisfied with Minelab metal detectors in the same way as I have been for more than two and half years. I consider Minelab metal detectors number one in the world market.

My first detector X-TERRA 705 helped me to find lots of interesting things including coins, badges and even a golden ring. Despite I was happy having it my aims were bigger and I decided to replace my X- TERRA 705 by something new. The reason why I chose CTX 3030 was absolutely clear. I wanted to search underwater treasures as well. My first time underwater experience was amazing because I found a gold pendant. I have been using CTX 3030 for more than six months and I have already found many pieces of silver and gold jewellery including some rings. I would like to share a photo of the most successful day I have ever had. I was exploring a bottom of a pond, where people usually swim a lot, and I found three silver and two golden rings.

Finally! A Gold Ring

Sovereign GT

March 03, 2014 09:00am

Finally a Ring of some worth. I did cheat though as a guy I know asked me if I could look for his Wedding Band that he lost approx 14 years ago while out fishing in waist deep water. He showed me the spot and the next morning armed with my trusty Sovereign GT and a very low tide I gave it a go. Tuning the detector on the beach I got a signal and out popped a 1881 English 3 Pence, Cool, A good way to start the hunt. The target area was a low craggly reef that runs for a 100 meters or more out to sea . So of I went detecting as I go, couple of pieces of junk and 3 sinkers later I was in the target area and got a signal down between a largish crack in the reef. Bit of digging and moving the rocks and lo and behold there it was, His lost Wedding Band. I really didn't hold a lot of promise of finding it after such a long time with all the rough seas that you can get along this piece of coast but as we know Gold is heavy and it just stayed put, pretty much where he lost it. Took it to him and he was over the moon to get it back. So a happy ending all round, I got to find my first Gold Ring And he gets his Gold Wedding Band back after 14 years in the Sea.

Lost People


March 02, 2014 10:00am

During the time of having my X-TERRA 305 I have had such an awesome privilege of sharing with people. It is the easiest machine to learn and have great success with it. I love the beach and probing the parks with a screwdriver. Saves on plugs.

I have acquired another detector from Minelab in Australia for $300.

This detector has given me the privilege of taking people out and talking with them with their life's issues. It has been great.

No Photo but the opportunities to help people mean more than money or treasure.

I have found in excess of $375+rings etc
