  1. Hello feom Southern California! I’m a returnee to metal detecting after a 45-year hiatus when I used to play with an old Heathkit MD I bought at a garage sale when I was a kid,. Wow, has the technology changed! My background has been doing fieldwork for environmental consulting work (construction monitoring), and I have a degree in biology and minor in geology. My wife and I are rock hounds, so we go camping a lot to collect rocks and minerals for fun on desert BLM lands. As a biologist, I’ve also worked with bats and have done a lot of mine surveys in the Mojave and Great Basin. Working underground has been a really interesting part of the job as I am a western US history buff as well. So it was only natural for me to be into looking for gold too. Ok, so back to MD’ing.... my interest is in finding pretty minerals that are shiny, as well as meteorites in the Mojave. I recently bought a detector, and am really enjoying learning to use it. I’d really like to thank you guys for helping out with all that as I’ve learned a lot by reading all the materials on this site about it. Cheers, Anthony
  2. Hello all, I’m new to detecting, but didn’t want to buy a detector that was limited in its capabilities. Chose the Equinox 800, along with a Profind 35 pointer. It’s winter here, which means 2’ of snow, so my detecting area is limited to a walk up and down the driveway for now. (Found nothing except Magnetite gravel) Hope to setup a practice garden when spring comes but it’s tough just sitting here waiting! For all you detectorists that are able to get “out and about” this time of year, enjoy!
  3. Hello everyone, my name is Jared. I’ve been detecting for years but just recently added to my collection of machines and picked up a gold Kruzer. I’m hoping to get into some nugget hunting soon. Glad I found this forum, happy hunting!

  5. Hi All from Pokeno, New Zealand. Introducing myself first.Retired and rather reclusive, I hunt mainly beaches, relic, dirt and mud, and a little water hunting. We live rural and I use a Tarsacci MDT8000 95% time and an XP Deus Still have AT Pro and and XTerra 705 for friends, visitors and the odd swing. Sold all other detectors I have had over the years. Steve has grown a great forum which I have followed on and off over the years and gotten to know, so I hope to contribute to our mutual hobby as well in a small way. I changed my avataar to a NZ Womens Service badge to honour the following; During World War II women worked at 'men's' work to free up over 200,000 men to serve in the armed forces. They were encouraged to "do their bit" for the war effort - from manufacturing uniforms, equipment and weaponry; to working in factories and on farms, trams and the railways. They also served in the Air Force, Army and Navy in Europe and the Pacific. Whereas in September 1939 the female labour force was estimated at 180,000, by December 1943 there were 228,000 women employed at the homefront and 8000 in the armed forces. (See NZETC: No easy victory)

  12. Hello, my name is Ken and I live in Northern Colorado. Ive been recreational prospecting for about 6 years now and included metal detecting 4 years ago. I am looking forward to interacting with this community and have been enjoying catching up on some past forum posts. Good luck to you all out there. I am interested in learning about detecting at tailing piles as I have yet to do that and would be very interested to start. I am a member of Eureka Treasure Hunters Club in Denver, WWATS down south, and a few other online forums dedicated to metal detecting, prospecting, and treasure hunting. If you are interested, I run a youtube channel that services the metal detecting community called "Adventures In Dirt" ... https://www.youtube.com/adventuresindirt -Ken
  13. Had the great pleasure to chat with Jerry *** aka tinfoil. For those who might not know this guy, back in the day, 20+ years ago he was one of the treasure hunters who wrote a lot on finding gold. He wanted me to mention that he and Pat are doing good. That he doesn't get to hunt anymore but remembers posting many years ago. He says hi to Steve too.
  14. New member here from Myrtle Beach, S.C. Glad to be here on the DETECTOR PROSPECTOR FORUM with all you fine folks. I've been metal detecting for about 40 years with coin shooter type detectors at on the beach, parks and such. Juse last week received my Equinox 600 and thought I'd do some out of state Civil War relic hunting with my Son. Thanks for having me..
  15. Chris has an excellent article about some prospecting and marketing he did in the recent ICMJ. Fortune favors the prepared and Chris proves it! Congratulations, Chris!!! fred
  16. Hello everybody. I have come for all your gold. You can keep the pop tabs. Seriously.... I had a radio shack junk finder I bought with allowance money as a kid.... dint find squat.... which brings me here.... fast forward to today. I recently purchased the Minelab Equinox 800 from the Forest City metal detectors. Immediately I knew what I wanted.... a great machine that’s waterproof and produces positive results. I’m open to pointers or lessons from anyone...as I haven’t had a shovel in my hands since that kid era. I’m located in Waterloo Ontario Canada. There are miles of beaches within a two hour drive from here. I’m sure they’ve been pounded... but there is a goldmine out there as well as coins, jewelry, and who knows what else where the eyes can not see. If it is out there, it isn’t going to jump out at you and bite you like a snake... you need this technology to do the hard work... finding it. I understand the etiquettes in regards to laws and properties and will respect that. So, all in all, I’m getting back into this hobby. Thank you for having me in this group and I hope to run into a lot of you. I’ll be out there this spring sweeping away.
  17. Been lurking here for a while, but finally decided to join. I started with this grand hobby in 1972 and have been an avid old coin hunter ever since. Mostly use Fisher detectors, but have others as well. HH jim tn
  18. Hi everyone, my name is Nemanja, I live in Serbia. I've been doing metal detecting for about half a year, I have a Garrett ace 400i, mostly searching on Roman Empire grounds and medieval grounds. This part of Europe is a very rich ancient and medieval terrain. So far I have been finding Roman coins, medieval coins and similar finds from that period. I hope to have a good time and share experiences. So much for now and I apologize for bad English ...

  24. Blessed are the swingers for they walk in the shadows of the past. Blessed are the hunts filled with tones of joy. Happy are the panners who strain their eyes for that glitter of gold. Happy are those who never find tabs or slaw. May your New Year bring you tones of joy, glitters of gold, and finds from the past. May your New Year never show you pull tabs and can slaw again. Happy New Year to all and have a great 2020.
  25. I wish everyone a Happy New Year with good finds. Most of all find time to look, swing and enjoy. Mitchel
