Where to Find Gold!
Be A Gold Digger!
Gold is one of the most precious metals on earth and it is everywhere! It could be right under your feet. It is estimated that only 5% of the worlds gold has been found to date and there are deposits virtually everywhere around the world waiting to be discovered. The price of gold is increasing as well and the top financial experts agree that it is one of the best investments you can add to your portfolio as the dollar becomes more and more unstable.
Gold is expensive and buyers looking to purchase a bullion may have to wait for periods as long as one month as the supply can't currently meet the demand. If you can't afford to purchase gold - why not find it? It's good to be a gold digger!
Turn A Hobby Into A Gold Find!
Metal detectors have been around since the first one was invented by Alexander Graham Bell in 1881. A better, more portable version wasn't made until 1931. They have now become very easy to operate and vary in price ranges and features depending upon what you are looking for.
Metal detectors are made to find things under the ground that are hidden from our vision. There are several different makers and manufacturers and there are about 5 different basic types of detectors. The basic type for an amateur seems to be a general purpose detector that will alert you to many types of coins, relics and treasures. They can identify types of metals such as gold, silver, iron, lead, bronze, brass, aluminum, iron, nickle and copper. They will not work on objects such as pearls, precious gems or paper money. In general most of them will detect metal objects upto 12 inches underground depending on which type you decide to purchase.
Metal detectors can be purchased with filters and options that can allow you to differentiate better between trash and treasure. The sensors can break down the amount and mixtures of different metals in the objects you can't see. The frequency the detectors operate at are important to study. Lower frequencies are supposed to be more sensitive to objects that are made of metals such as copper and silver. Filtering can also affect things like protection for depth and trash rejection, for example.
There are many clubs and tours that a prospector can join to learn more about tips and techniques. Digging for gold is a hobby that people share all over the globe. It isn't an expensive hobby and you do not have to continually purchase items to add to your collection. You find them for free in your spare time and add money to your collection rather than spending to buy another item.
The basic items a gold digger needs are:
- A book about gold coins and prospecting
- A good map of the area you will be searching
- A Compass (and know how to use it!)
- A metal detector (consult an expert to find out which is best for you)
- Small digging equipment such as a spade or trowel
- A means of communication with the outside world for your safety
As you can see anyone, including children, can enjoy this hobby. It is fun for the entire family.

Searching for buried treasure is a great hobby but before you go prospecting you will need to make sure you are careful about where you search. Permission is necessary to search anyone else's property - especially if you plan to dig on the land and take something away. If the area you are interested in is privately owned you will need to ask the owner or manager of the property for permission.
It is almost always illegal to search on land that has been deemed Historical property.
If the land is owned by the city a good start might be your local Parks and Recreation Department. If the State or Federal government owns the property you might get help by asking the groundskeeper or whoever supervises the property.
Treasure hunting can be addictive and while I advocate this as a recreational hobby some people to to extremes and their lives become a quest for the big find. People have died and been injured on their thirst for lost valuables. A 28 year old woman in Tokyo saw the movie Fargo and died in her quest to find the million bucks that she was sure was buried in the woods in the North Dakota snow. This is a true story. Apparently even authorities and her friends tried to convince her that the movie wasn't real. She died trying to prove them wrong. Have fun in your search but don't get too greedy!
