Where Should I Start Detecting Metals?

Where Should I Start Detecting Metals?

Just as important as choosing a good place to start our metal detection experience is - no doubt - having a good device place to do it. In my experience, more than a good device one, it is better to directly invest in the best device metal detector you can get right now. Because believe me, it won't be an expense, but an investment that you will easily recover.
Just as the well-known "mantra" of real estate agents is ".location, location, location..." in this case for us to say "location, location, location..." is equally important, but it is necessary to add one more premise to this slogan "location yes..., but never improvise". Carrying out a search for metals that has a minimum of chances of success will require a feed stage and a planning stage on your part. In this line, we will try to guide you from this article.
The first of the rules, or if you want the definitive one to include or discard a place in your list of sites, is to determine if a lot of people have passed through that place or not. Think carefully: in what is now a forest, some battle may have taken place in ancient times and believe me that in those places there is much, much material of the kind you will be looking for and want to find. So that parameter "place where many people have passed" you have to evaluate it not only in the present but centuries ago included.
In that sense, it is advisable to study a little the history of the area in which you live or want to develop your search, if you do not feel able or with time to study my advice is to seek a partner who does. You'll get a lot of data that you can translate into valuable information.
Think open-minded, sometimes the most desperate moments are those that force people to hide belongings underground Both voluntarily and by accident, the most precious things end up buried (coins, jewels, weapons...) and the secret of their existence dies with its owner.
Therefore, in your investigation, you should include places where there have been criminal acts, battles, unresolved robberies, villages, or areas that would receive refugees (who would undoubtedly take with them their most valuable belongings...).
Finally, let's think about your planning. It is advisable to think of routes that include the aforementioned considerations, but from my experience, I would add an interesting factor that gives good results: to be opportunistic (in the good sense of the word, of course). What do I mean? That you take advantage of excavations that are currently being carried out in any area: where buildings are being built, where bridges, tunnels, or new roads are going to be built... in short, everything is served there on a tray and is close to the surface for you.
Let's take a step then! Metal detection is as challenging as it is fascinating. Don't let this opportunity pass you by.
