1st Find - 1st Outing - 1st Time Ever using the CTX 3030 - Mens 14K Pink Gold Wedding Band with 200 Diamonds

CTX 3030

May 30, 2018 03:33am


I have not detected for 40 yrs but always thought I would do it again someday. I occasionally read detector magazines and knew if I did it again I would want a CTX 3030 for land and water so on a whim I bought a used CTX 3030 from a friend in Oregon and he shipped it to me in Toronto, Canada. We ended up going to a Business Mastermind Retreat at a Resort in Jamaica and decided to bring our Detectors - It was winter here and I had not even tried my new/used CTX 3030 yet.

Ghost Town Discovery


May 28, 2018 10:14am


On April 28, 2018, six members of our Okanagan Treasure Hunters Club went metal detecting at the former townsite of Fairview, British Columbia, Canada. Fairview, now a ghost town, was established in 1896 when gold mining activity in the area peaked but by 1920 the local gold rush had ended and the townsite was abandoned. Over the years the buildings were either relocated to Oliver, British Columbia or demolished leaving a wide open field full of sage brush, cacti, rusted metal trash (see our collection below!) and, in summer, rattlesnakes.
