Recruited to try find lost wedding ring in a huge paddock


August 14, 2018 05:38am


A farmer wife lost her wedding ring of 40 years in a paddock and didn't realise, Later the same day they run a plough or some sort of farming machinery over the paddock as they planted it out with grass seed so the ring was likely buried. They're pretty certain it was lost in this paddock so they asked if I could try find it knowing I’ve recently taken up metal detecting and had heard I found an old Gold Miners ring on a prospecting adventure when I went looking for Gold nuggets

The day started off like all of our detecting days; by driving around pondering what site to hit. We decided to stop at a new permission along the shores of the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick, Canada. We dug a few modern targets, but nothing too interesting. I decided to follow the field down to the waters edge and detect the shoreline, as the main site is quite grown up. I found a spot to get down to the shore (a flat spot with a 5' drop to the rocks below).

I had been doing online research to try and come up with some unexplored places to go metal detecting and increase my chances of scoring something unique. After about six hours of research, I had a few leads but nothing that seemed concrete enough without doing more research.
