Tip

Dig out your own treasure


Some people wrongly consider "treasure hunting" with the use of a metal detector, as a potential source of enrichment. However, as almost all metal detector treasure hunters will testify, this activity is almost completely of an entertaining nature and rarely brings any real valuables.

All metal detectors can be set to detect different levels of signals coming from the metals, buried underground. According to its settings, the metal detector finds bigger or smaller objects, of different metals, buried deeper or more superficially. What most people aim for is gold. Lost rings or chains, old gold coins etc.

Coins are the most common "treasures" found with metal detectors.
They can be found more or less easily both on beaches or buried in fields. In the latter case, it's easier to find older coins rather than modern ones; witnesses of history, lost in more or less ancient times. Many metal detector hobbyists like collecting them as historical tokens, engraved with images and scriptures from the past.

On the other hand, beaches are abundant with modern coins that people lose, for example, when dropping the wallet in the sand, or when shaking the towel, forgetting they had been hiding money or jewelery in it.

Rings are also often lost in the water and washed ashore by the waves.
Therefore, the two places on the beach that may prove the most fruitful, are the round-shaped areas where the waves touch, especially at their tip, and the farthest outskirts of the beach, where people usually set their towels and belongings, and where they are likely to shake off their towel, dropping "treasures".

Good luck!

Is it ok to keep the stuff you find on the beach with a metal detector?


In general yes - finders keepers! But if you are on a private beach, national park or historic site, it's not necessarily yours to keep. In some places you need permission to use the metal detector and it's best to get that in writing and keep it on you while you are hunting.

Is it easy to find gold on a beach with a metal detector?


Gold is more valuable than silver and often comes with gem stones etc, so finding it on the beach is a great thing. But - gold has low conductivity and falls into the same range as pull-tabs and foil. So if you sift those types of items out, so that you don't' get so much junk, you could also be sifting out the good stuff.

I want to start metal detecting. Where should I be looking for stuff?


You can look anywhere you like at the beginning just to get used to using it. Some people love to metal detect on the beach.

It's best to go to a place that has a high turnover of people at the site over a long period of time. Here are a few suggestions;

Parks, beaches, picnic groves, flea markets, amusement parks and old churches.

How does the Draper stud detector work


It produces a tuned magnetic field of it's own, and when a live wire or a nail enter that field it changes the loading in the detector's circuitry throwing it off tune, and depending how it is thrown off determines ifit is a nail, a wire or a live wire.

It is the same basic principle of a metal detector you would use onthe beach to find metal things.
