A planned bottle digging expedition had been planned 9 months prior with some metal detecting thrown in for good measure.lt involved an 8 hour drive and it was going to be an epic road trip and 7 days away from the family.My Dad(83 years old) who is pretty active was keen to go if his health was good.My dad loves his E-TRAC and gets out most weeks chasing coins
While metal detecting in Lincolnshire, I unearthed a silver World War 1 identity bracelet.
I set about trying to find out a bit more about the soldier, with a hope of finding surviving descendants.
I remarkable story emerged.
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.
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.
