I relocated to Yuma Arizona 2 years ago after finding the USArmy 1853 steam paddle wheel Uncle Sam. I am always looking for people to metal detect with, I work wrecks all over the world. When I’m not investigating wrecks, I’m out swinging a detector. Anyone that wants to put in some miles I’ve got lots of hunting ground, in and out of the water. Currently involved in three ongoing Spanish ( Shipwreck projects, currently researching a fourth, actively involved in the search for an English 1587 wreck etc. today I got up at five am to hitch the boat in order to go explore a new area of desert, accessible only by boat, the two people going with me blew me off. I’m trying to find others that are more committed to actually searching for the gold and not just talking about it. I have found it before because I understand that to find the loot you got to get some blisters, and wear out some boots. No one ever finds treasure sitting in front of the T.V. If you don’t dive no worries, we find a lot out of the water too, if you dive and don’t have gear, no worries I’ve got more than most dive shops. From Polaris razors to boats to ships, fully equipped to, metal detect,sonar, mag, ROV, UAV, dredge, dig, lift, recover and preserve. I’ll do modern salvage or crime scene dives if the price is right otherwise I stick with going after gold and historical finds and meteorites. Home is Yuma, current projects are Arizona, California, Oregon, Washington, and Mexico

Hello from the West!
I go by the name Tree, given to me by some jokers making comments about a jacket I wore once!
Anyways, my number one is gold prospecting; detecting, drywashing, and panning. In that order. Though I am interested in other methods of course. My number two is general rock hounding. My mantra is, “Always be prospecting.” And it is always suitable!
I have been aware of my prospecting habits for 7 years now and there’s no sign of them ever going away!
I am seriously, seriously grateful for these prospecting forums. Where a great variety of knowledge and ideas can be communicated and the inspiration that perspires from that is magnificent! So, I’m hear to learn and occasionally share some stories. Because sometimes you just need to read a prospectors tale!
Hi everyone, I'm an older fellow here hoping to get a few tips and tricks on how to do a bit of gold searching on my property. I'm nearing retirement and this could possibly be a descent hobby to get into.
Been detecting for just over a year now, have two machines a Simplex+ and a Vanquish 540 (won the vanquish in a raffle). Found some interesting things including coins on nearly every outing, hoping to gain some tips & tricks from the wealth of knowledge here.
