Tips For Metal Detecting Treasure

When it comes to metal detection hunts the question is continuously ‘Where do I search for treasures?’ In hunting for valuables you may also recover some other treasures such as the rich history of a area, the exercise you are getting or the relaxation of being in the out-of-doors. Although the end result might be a hidden gem, detectorists must also keep in mind and enjoy the entire process of metal detecting from the history of a site to the eventual finding of a valuable. There are many ideas where to search for new treasures.

Old trails and areas where people may have gathered together are examples of places that are valuable for hunting treasures. Because so much time has passed, these trails may prove hard to find. The simplest way to find these hidden trails is to find archives kept at local churches or libraries. Coins, caches, and relics are just a few hidden artifacts that might be detected on old trails from long ago. Natives buried caches to come back to and retrieve but something happened to them, they were killed or got sick and never returned. Hidden treasures such as knives or guns may also be detected. Hidden treasures such as coins or antiques may also be found in areas that were used as common get together for town people such as old barns or church areas.

Ending hunting areas are available to detectorist and the most important aspect is to think about where people of the past gathered. Think about where the activities of the people took place such as their work in storm cellars, hanging laundry on clotheslines, and going up and down steps. Around enormous old trees where children played and relaxed away from the sun. Parks where people gathered or played are hidden places for old coins even if they have been detected before. Think about how people traveled and make your way to old railroad depots to look for hidden treasures. Old coins can even be found at old churches. Treasures that have made their way to the surface can be found at building sites.

In city areas, consider road names that may give clues to a previous environment such as “grove” or “trail”. Don’t overlook the grassy areas between streets or new construction sites for detecting and locating valuable targets. Valuables and treasures may also be hidden surrounding inns or long standing buildings of the past.

All of these suggestions should get you pointed in the right direction for a successful hunt. Observe everything around you and visualize where people were to make your hunt worthwhile.
