Hello all,
My fiance and I are from Uniontown, PA. We are new to this. I have always wanted a metal detector since I was little and used to pick out my Christmas gifts from the SEARS Wishbook. Needless to say, my parents never thought it was appropriate for a little girl. So this year for my birthday, my fiance finally bought me one for my birthday and hid some jewelry in the yard for me. He is the sweetest!


We are both excited to get started... We are geocachers, but this kicks it up another notch. We live in a very historical area and have a Yahama Rhino to get into the areas that are less traveled. We would be interested in meeting up with people who can show us a little how to work this metal detector. As far as I have read, it appears that is going to be most of our battle in finding anything. In the yard what we thought was possibly a musket and a coin, my 90 year old grandfather told us that it was a bearing and a washer, lol.

We live on/near 100 Acres, that once was a coal/coke mine. The DER or DEP (???) did a 4 million dollar project to clean it up a few years back. There was a 100 ft mine shaft that I used to play near that we didn't know was there. The guy that owned the house beside us ran a metal fabricating shop. ( Fred Scango of Fayette Equipment in case anyone has heard of it.) The mines are in Jamison. The patch houses are still here but many families have bought and renovated them into single family homes. I have heard that my area used to be the old Nutt Farm, (ha ha) which may explain a lot. I would definitely appreciate any information that anyone my have about the mine, the farm, or the equipment shop.
