Oh No! someone is in a big trouble!!! -Newlyweds

Another interesting hunt last night - a very sanded in beach, but!...
... i was wondering why my rings counter had "0" at PlT/PD .... so we changed that!

Found this nice Platinum Ring :

The ring metal value is about 250$NZD ,but what is more important- it has engraving with a name and a date..... and a date is DAY/ December 2014 ... So sad.. person just got married, went to the beach and lost it....

So what have i done so far: i called
and was told that team that is authorised to access records to look up people who were married on the date and also match names are away till 5 January,

So, if couple married in NZ, i will be able to find them next week.

So for now feel free to share this on facebook and see if people will come up

HeartStopper Ring.....

Forgot to post this Episode of my detecting,

Went to Wet sand beach couple of days ago, IT was one of those moment, when you see glint of gold in the scoop... :

..But turns out a crappy plated Alloy.

Had an interesting find though - handmade Talisman in a shape of Horseshoe :

The rest of the finds (Silver cross on silver chain) :

The Earring is interesting as it was low signal on STX - right in the godl range, it has no corrosion as i would expect on any junk jewerly , also after scratching heavily - there is no other alloy and also kinda passes 9CT acid test, still not sure though. Weight exactly 7 Gram L

Junk +1

Max's hard road to ElDorado

Still chasing those gold rings , so here is summary of the last extensive hunts,


Had only about 2 hours before work and that was right before low tide,couldn't even stay during low tide hour.

I found an exposed rock formation and started to look in all the crevices , the result as below:

Unfortunately no Gold, just 3 junkers and 4 Silver.


having a day off i decided to go to same rock formation and hit it hard as i was sure- some gold was hiding there.

Glad i did :-)

Both 9 ct + silver ring and 3 silver coins.

Here are all the finds from thsoe 2 days:

The big chains is either very low silver content ,like.500 or junk, not completely sure.


Had a lazy day and instead of going to the beach, went to my "drinking spot" to pick up my usual 20$ in coins. no treasures though (silver /gold) so no picture


After very sunny and weekend and packed beaches (but very Low Tide during the day) i decided to go in the evening to one of local beaches to do dry sand.

While i was wondering around, a runner girl came over and told me that her friend lost 2 sentimental value rings (one silver, one alloy) and it would be nice if i can find them. I got her number and 30 minutes later both rings were in the scoop. Unfortunately no Photo to add to my website but 40$ as a reward is good for me as far as i was already at the beach.

Anyway, i scored another 2 silver rings in the dry sand and a total of 24$ (4 were spent on the BUS)

The close up of a very awesome silver ring with lots of crystals :

Tuesday - today

Wasted time at the beach, went wading, but wind and waves picked up quickly from a calm state- so had to leave as was almost impossible to balance.

So, many many hours detecting in the past 5 days and as a result, only 2 gold, 3 Junk , 7 Silver and a return job.

Happy Hunting all!
