Trash and Treasure Valuable discoveries make this hobby fun and interesting! If every time you find only unnecessary garbage, most likely, your detector will end their lives in a cupboard collecting dust! You will find values, if you really want it and seek. But do not expect that you will come across a valuable material, and you'll find a lot of junk! There is no way to avoid this. When we return to the search, about 60 – 80% of what we found, immediately gets into the trash. However, much depends on where you're going and how well you know your metal detector. Choosing a good metal detector We all want to have the best metal detector, but many simply can not afford it, or just starting their hobby and do not want to spend a large amount. Of course, having a good expensive metal detector will give you an advantage over other search engines, but in our own experience – this is not the most important thing! If you spend a little time in the library and learn your local history, you'll find places that others never visited. And probably have goals lying just a few inches under your coil.
What is dig? Best place – to apply your first metal detector – the beach. Dig until you learn all types of signals. Most appliances built with a small amount of discrimination that helps you avoid a large number of objects such as nails, foil, etc. But the more you ignore, the less choice of what you'll find. For example, if you ignore the traffic jams, you'll miss nickel, and small gold ring. Be careful with this! Do not start in an area that heavily overloaded signals, it will bring you crazy. Begin your practice with a beach, or better yet, from your own backyard.
When to dig? If you know the place, which brings together a good "harvest", try to visit these places after heavy rain when the soil is saturated with water. In a damp basement high conductivity, and you can find valuable information on the most depth. In addition, after the winter, when everything melts shifts the soil, thus may appear objective, which previously could not be detected. Go back there and check everything again. Investigation of new places there are many ways to find new places to search. You do not even have to go to the library, although this is extremely useful. There you could "dig up" some old dusty books and karty.Internet growing rapidly in the past several years, a lot of interesting new information. All you need to do – type in the search engine 'History ' region or city, and examined closely. Or find some old pictures and postcards. Look at these parks, beaches, important buildings, etc. We hope our advice will be useful in your endeavors. Good luck!
