  1. So do i track down the living relatives?

    I had about an hour to kill after work Friday. So i tried to think of a place i could go that didn't require a long hike in the woods first. One of the first places that popped into my mind was this old house foundation right next to the road, in the town i grew up in. Local legend says there...

  3. Moar River Gold!

    I spent yesterday playing in the river with my propointer and ATpro and found 5 bricked cell phones (one has an SD card we are going to return to the owner) a sterling ring, and this chonky gold ring. It's pretty crude which makes me think it may be from an amateur jeweler in South America. Its...

  5. Magnet fishing for the first time. 1st shot of me on here.

    May 30 - Back at the river again! Completely packed ever since the Covid lockdowns eased in the few past weeks.

  6. Treasure Trees

    I've read that Native Americans used to "train" trees to grow in such a pattern that acts like a map of sorts. I came across two trees that look really out of place, and I'm wondering if there's anything to it. Not sure if it helps or matters, but both of these trees are located on a property...
  7. River Rock Finds - Identification Help?

    Found these two rocks today! This first one is just a normale quartz rock but I thought the way to quartz looked was really neat. It reminds me of a black & white tree frond. And on the other side is a swirl pattern. But the coolest find was this one! It looks to have an extremely clear white...

  9. Recent river finds: a good year for gold

    Been out probing those river holes this year. I feel like my carrots paid itself off now! The 5 along the knives on the left are all marked 14k. Nice patina from sitting at the bottom of a hole full of hematite, nails, chain links, and such.
  10. Detecting the River for Civil War Relics. Many finds.

    I've been wanting to get in this particular river since I first started metal detecting but the drive is rather long. I was finally able to find the time and we ended up having a great day on the water. I was proud of my little 4hp motor too. It got us back up river (2 miles) to the boat ramp...

  14. I found some gems/stones in a river with no idea what they are.

    So a couple of years ago in England, I went to High Force which is a big waterfall and tourist attraction. It was a geographical trip so we had to observe rock formations etc, but whilst I was in the river, I found 2 purple-ish natural stones with a very nice shimmer to them. Since they were...

Thick base and emerald green...
