Would You Do It, Down Under For A Fist Full?

Recommended Posts


Definitely wear a filtering mask.  My brother-in-laws brother was under his house for a very short time and contracted some kind of lung disease from mold .... he now needs a lung transplant.   Even a 1 in 10,000 chance ..... do you want  to be the 1?

But those porches and such are ideal places for those kind of finds....... great hunt.  You have to like treasure hunters that think outside the box...... like privy hunting ..... ya just never know.

Hope they got to keep their haul, or at minimum a significant percentage of it.  I have two 150+ year old permissions coming up this year.  I need to review contract agreements.  Finding stuff is fun, but not getting to keep it -- not as much.

He does some great videos. The ones he used to do for you were works of art....Too bad Minelab quit paying people like Ryan who made youtube videos as I believe it gets a lot of folks excited about the hobby...

      “Let us take you back to Reno over 147 years ago. 
      In the year 1872, President Ulysses S. Grant was about to go into his second term, mining was the main source of economic prosperity throughout the western United States, and the entire state of Nevada's population was less than 50,000 people (1870 Nevada Census). 
      During this time, the Free Masons were a prominent fraternal organization. They lodged their members and had held meetings in several places across the great basin. This includes: where Reno City Plaza now sits, the 13th Masonic Lodge on 1st street, and the recently demolished lodge next to the Whitney Peak hotel.
      During the lodge's demolition in late winter of 2019, construction workers found a tin-container placed inside a large rock of sandstone. The general manager of the Whitney Peak Hotel, Eric Olson, recognized the box as a time capsule placed by the masons. Olson, who also practices free-masonry, asked to have the time capsule properly removed by specialists and be interpreted by practicing historical experts and masons-alike.
      "I knew that it was a time capsule because, as a Free Mason, history is something we take pride in," said Olson. "I wanted to make sure whatever was inside of that container needed to be taken care of properly by a professional."”

      Hello everyone. I've been off the web as it relates to metal detecting for much of the past year. Let's just say life has gotten in the way, it's just been one of those years. I'm a member of ringfinders and I got a call this week I just had to share with everyone. I got a call about about a buried stash of silver in a backyard. According to what I was told, Grandpa had buried a stash of silver coins in the backyard and had only revealed that he had two weeks prior to his death. I was given the areas to hunt (1.8 acre property), but no idea what if anything was containing these coins in terms of container. I was pulling beer can after beer can and nail after nail I got a solid 16 tone on the Nox and I dug it. Turned out it was a 36" pipe that made the tell-tale sound of having something in it. Long story short we had to cut the pipe open and when we did it was awesome. A find of a lifetime, a cache of silver coins.
