Metal Detecting & Prepping An Old Well For Excavation

In this video we do the following: Teach a quick lesson on how to find sites to metal detect, clean out a well for future digs, and find some kick butt treasure! Metal detecting this old 1800’s homesite pays off.

Visit our website at for more tips on metal detecting and information on metal detecting gear.

This is the second hunt for us. Although we have found a fair amount of iron trash, some of it has been really cool iron targets including one muzzle loading shotgun barrel. On this trip Scrap Iron finds a 1870 three cent piece and Kevin finds a gold plated ring! I dug up some iron crap. We got some good footage from the quad chopper for our video trailer.

And yes, this is old footage from last fall. I forgot that I never made this into a video! I can’t believe I forgot to complete this but glad I found it. We hope to metal detect this site and get out to finish our exploration of the well sometime this fall.
