The story starts with a British lady who lost her diamond ring while on vacation in the Mediterranean Sea. The ring was no ordinary ring. It was an family heirloom worth a lot of money. The ring feel off her finger while she was in the water. She discovered she needed additional help looking for the ring, so she hired underwater metal detector specialist, George Edmunds and his partner, Julia Stephens to aid her. They all met up at a seaside resort near Palma, Majorca, Spain.
Here are a few take a ways:
1. Most shovels found in hardware stores that are used for gardening will not work. They are made of aluminum and bend easily even after just a half day of metal detecting. For treasure hunters, there are better ways to find possible treasure.
2. One the most requested features on target recovery tools are the serrated edges. The serrated edge gives you the ability to cut into the dirt and pull it out easier than using a non-serrated edge.
3. The serrated edge feature is available on treasure hunting knives, metal detecting shovels and trowels.
4. While having the correct target recovery tool for the job is important, it is also necessary to have the correct accessories. Many treasure hunters carry pinpointers and probes with them to locate the exact spot of the target without damaging the target itself.

There’s nothing better than a powerful combo to find you more loot! To start, Your metal detector can help find a solid, tone target and dig to find the target. You can use the Gold Rush Nugget Bucket to shake away the excess clumps and dirt. You can see if you’ve found more gold pieces! We tried taking out the Nugget Bucket with our waterproof Garrett AT Pro metal detector to test the operation of both units together and we were surprised by the results! When you pour water over the dirt and use your hand to shake away clumps, this is where the magic of the Gold Rush Nugget Bucket starts taking place!
Larger objects will often get caught up in the top screen while the smaller pieces flow through the Gold Rush Nugget Bucket’s patented chamber system. The objects caught in this phase are often easy to catch, but if you are digging in thicker soil and can’t identify your target, just run your pinpointer over the top of the screen until you get a solid signal. Find out what else we had to say and what areas we recommend for detecting with your Gold Rush Nugget Bucket.
