About This Website

I created this website to provide information about prospecting and metal detecting. I got started prospecting in the early 70s and purchased my first metal detector, a White's Coinmaster 4 in 1972. I have been at it ever since.

I was involved directly in the business for 40 years as a multi-line dealer. However, my partner and I sold our business to the employees in 2010 and now I am a guy enjoying life. :smile: This website is a fun project that offsets its costs with Google Ads. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. All I can do is to promise not to go overboard with them. There is no vested interest here in people buying or using any particular product or equipment.
