    Near where I used to live is an old common & across one part was part of a very old cart track before all the roads were built although majority of people just think it`s a footpath .
    Mate of mine found an old strongbox with all the iron banding & lock rods across it buried under a big hawthorn tree a few feet from this cart track , it was tangled in the roots , he left it there & reburied it as he won`t kill a tree by cutting the roots to get the box out .
    I know it`s still there to this day & often wondered .
    Only organically grown outdoor mj & veg .

      great story. im sure the uk is full nice goodies
      WOW £3.6million or there abouts he got for that lot m8 now thats a find of of a lifetime. And he had done that field for yrs and your right m8 the uk is full of goodies

          anyone recommend a starter metal detector?

          i have been wanting to get into it for many years, and now i have a bunch of land i want to search.

                diggin an ammo dump might put u off detecting b4 you'v even got into m8 the amount of signals you will get will thrash your mind to bits not only that id advise against digging anywere near it m8 hit one decent sized shell with a spade an BOOOOOOM. Must remember they been in the ground for 60 odd years or more very very unstable

                  have you ever tried detecting on beaches ?

                  i wonder would there be anything there other then lost items from people going to the beach?

                    i dont do the beaches here in the uk you must hit the beach after a real bad storm so the beach is stripped of all the sand otherwise all we find is ring pulls an moden coins
                    unlike usa were you find the good stuff in the top sand due to the amount of ppl visitin the beaches

                      Once I built a sluice to evaluate some concentrate from a copper mine.

                      I processed about 600 pounds of mud through the sluice and its density changed.

                      Going in it was about 11 pounds per gallon.

                      The weight of the intermediate concentrate after going through my sluice was 30 pounds per gallon.


                      It is wierd lifting up, heavier than it looks.

                      I paid one place to do a fire assay, and one other semi-retired geologist/ metallurgist volunteered to do
                      his standard battery of chemical assays.

                      Long story short, there's copper in the sand.


                      I may end up selling the sluice. It is 6 1/2 feet long and about 15 inches wide.

                      It didn't bring me good luck, but it helped me learn some mining.


                      I have a friend who does river mining, and he uses a metal detector to help him figure out where to dig. Then he goes in with a dredge and a sluice on a back pack, sets it all up, and processes 2 to 10 cubic yards of river sand. It will yield 1/4 ounce to an ounce plus, of gold, per outing (hard working bust your ass 4 to 8 hours).

                      Key to his process is his metal detector. He is not having good luck, he is performing journeyman geological and metallurgical analyses in the field ... and it all starts with his metal detector.

                      I asked him if I could rent it, but he said no. Other than that he is very helpful. I could understand not wanting to loan out a tool you depend on.


                      So what is a good kind of metal detector to get ?

                      I'm also curious about 'hot rocks', what a local mining supply lady calls 'false positives', e.g. the thing rings or responds, but it's iron or copper instead of silver or gold.
                      I have Limited Tolerance for Zero-Tolerance.


                      Stoned Thinking is my Specialty.

                          mate to be really honest with ya id not advise anyone on buyin an AT pro or a minelab as a 1st metal detector thats a whole lot of money to shell out if you find the hobby isnt for you id recommend buyin a cheap one 1st then if you get hooked on the hobby fair play an upgrade but as i said spendin £500-£600 on your 1st detector is silly imo just my thoughts

                            is there any legal issues in the UK about looking in and around castle type areas?

                            i dont live in the UK but not to far away and there is alot of really old sites some thousands of years old others hundreds that have never been touched. im sure there is some laws preventing this but

                              yes there is my friend we have lots of legal issues here in the uk infact the laws regarding finds an stuff are a fucking load of bollacks to be honest i mean come on if you find 3or more gold or silver coins in the same field that are more than 300yrs old these are classed as an hoard an must be surrended to the treasury (the queen) like fuck she can go an walk miles an find her fucking own if i find it that belongs to leepy fuck em
