A while ago I was at home looking on the internet when an old racecourse caught my eye. As I searched TROVE I became more intrigued. The racecourse had operated on and off for about 25 years and eventually closed about 1900 because of the distance it was from town. Searching old maps of the area revealed a “Racecourse Reserve”. It was on private pr...

A Lady was at Seacliff beach South Australia and lost her ring late in the evening.She and her son tried to find it but couldn’t. She was sure she knew where she’d lost it but try as they might, they couldn’t find it.

Eventually she was told about the Southern Seekers Metal Detecting Club & phoned the President.He agreed to meet them back at the beach about lunchtime the next day.

After a number of sweeps of the beach where they believed it had been lost ….. they located it.It was still where she had lost it but overnight it had sunk down to about 1foot deep.

As you can imagine she was overjoyed in getting it back.

We don’t know the value of the ring but it weighed in at 4.5grams and as you can see it’s a big ring with row after row of beautiful diamonds, each one set with individual heart shaped settings.


The problem with worn skid plates.

Worn Skid plates

Hi all!

We’ve all heard the motto of go low and slow, when we go metal detecting – which is one of the ways that we can increase our finds. This can be hard to do for novices to metal detecting – but with a little practice, it becomes second nature. If you raise your coil four inches off the ground for instance – th...

Sometimes you can get in a rut with your detecting – heading back to the old workings from the
1800’s to find a few small nuggets here and there. There has definitely been a lot of gold found from
some of these areas – and advances in coils/detectors has allowed us to revisit those areas time and
time again, with more nuggets found – but do you ever d...

On The Hunt for Goldies....

During a recent Expo that Miners Den Australia attended in Sydney I had a spare day to go and do a bit of coin hunting around the area. Wayne from Minelab Electronics was there to assist during the event. My usual approach is just to target the $1 & $2 coins at these event sites

We found a closed bar with a grass patch wit...

Why it pays to be thorough……

I quite often see beginners and new detectorists lacking in quantity of finds, so I often ask how are you working the areas? The usual response is just walking around swinging.

A good example of this was a few weeks ago at a local sports field, there was a fellow detecting there already when I arrived. Watching him, I cou...

Knowledge is everything, don't be afraid to ask!

After detecting another park for an hour with nothing historical turning up I started talking to a local and they mentioned a park down the road had quite a bit of history.

I immediately changed spots.

After criss crossing the park i found a hot spot and picked up a 1920 silver shilling and an 1898 Brit...
