New Member Located In Yuma Arizona

Recommended Posts

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

Welcome aboard and I am sure that someone will be interested in helping you out.

If I didn't have so much on my plate for the next year I would be jumping on your offer.

I do not dive, but I am in posesion of my grandfathers Ocean Pearl if you know what they are.

Good luck on your adventure, and please post some of your finds.

That sounds like a great offer to the right people! Wish i could be one of them!

  May i suggest advertising in the Treasure Coast area of Florida on several forums! Those guy's and girl's on their off salvage season, are experienced, and may be available for part of the year!

Good luck with your hunts!👍👍

If I would have met you in 2010 ... I was ready for treasure and had plenty of time and interest.  I just didn't have someone who had the research bug to go with at the time.

Now I've got a wife and two little kids as treasure finds!

Steve and Lunk are down your way part of the year.  I've detected a few times around Yuma and liked it.  I found a few nuggets and know there is a lot more.

Hi TG,

Welcome to the forum. I have sent you a short txt. I metal detect and am a certified (but infrequent) diver. I love history and as a kid I cleaned boat bottoms and did a little wreck diving in Long Island Sound.

      Hi all, I have been enjoying the forum for about a year and read it almost daily.  I have been detecting since the mid 1980’s  I started with a very used Garrett BFO and didn’t find much with it but, many years later I bough a Whites GMT and did pretty well.  Now, I’m really enjoying the Equinox 800. I think the Equinox is almost a perfect machine for me and I couldn’t be happier with it.  Anyways I hope to add to the forums in the future.

      Hi I'm josh. I'm new to the forum. I have been lurking here for a while and thought it's time to join! This has to be the best detecting for gold forum I have seen. Thank you all for the generous tips. I see some familiar people on here from the tnet. Hello all!

      G’day from Central Queensland, Australia. I’m Rob Shepherd (mates call me Shep or Sheppo, hence the user name). I’m relatively new to the prospecting game, only picking up a detector (GPX5000) seriously for the first time in August of 2020 and since upgrading to a GPZ7000. I feel relatively privileged to be living so close to some of the richest goldfields in Queensland and absolutely love living here. 
      Happy to be a part of the community and look forward to seeing the posts here and the knowledge being passed around 👍🏻

Have used plenty of Minelab detectors and some teknetics and been detecting for about 10 years now, looking for Ward to exploring the forums more and interacting.

      I had been detecting for over the 25 years with many good finds and good times. Went to many organized hunts, meetings and belonged to 2 clubs. Caught an autoimmune as well as a neck/head injury which has made me make some huge changes. Was a fishing guide for 22 years, gave that up, sold the boat, sold the truck, played in a band etc etc. Finally after 6 years the Drs all keep telling me "you need to get out and move around if only for a little while". I tried with my DFX 300 which was just bought prior to this, but it was to heavy to swing for me. Tried my regular DFX, the CZ20 with the belt and nope, nothing worked (they both for sale now). My wife talked to a friend of mine who I used to hunt with and he recommended the Minelab 800. Well, it is much lighter for me and I was able to get out for 1 hour the other day.  She also bought me a Lesche digger that was the exact height as my walking sticks to which I use that as my walking stick now. Worked out well. Hopefully little by little I can add some time but for now even a little is great for me. Here is a pic after my first time out in 6 years with the new 800. Take care everyone. There is always someone else worse off somewhere and never give up!
