G’day from Western Australia

Hi there,

My name is Billy and I am a full time Metal Detectorist, whether it be on Dry Land, Beach, or Under Water.

I have decided to start this website so I can catalogue all of my finds on the internet for myself, friends, and visitors to see what I find on my adventures through out parts of Western Australia on my Treasure Hunting trips.

I am not exactly a professional Treasure Hunter, I am just an amateur detectorist, and in my opinion the defination of Treasure is basically anything worth money, something shiny, old, it can be a 1 cent coin or an old silver six pence coin, a beautiful diamond encrusted ring, gold, silver trinkets, ear rings, number plates, anything really that I can admire.

At the moment I use two types of Metal Detectors.

The first one is the Minelab E-Trac

E-Trac is Minelab’s most technologically advanced detector, incorporating unique Full Band Spectrum (FBS) Technology. Its sleek, sturdy design, innovative control panel, intuitive menus, clear LCD, robust lightweight coil and comprehensive targeting options set E-Trac apart from any other detector available today.

The second is a Minelab Excallibur ll

Minelab’s unique BBS 17 Frequency and Ground Rejecting Technology makes the Excalibur II the ideal machine. This amphibious detector can move from land, beach, wet sand conditions to underwater depths up to 200ft (66m) seamlessly. More Info here

I have a lot of luck with both detectors, finding Gold and Silver Rings and plenty of old Coins on nearly all occasions I have used them.

I also use a home made Sifter which I made from an old Garden Cart and some PVC Plumbling Pipe, Security Mesh which I use just by shovelling beach sand on it, sifting it and finding coins, I also use this in the bush around old bottle dumps and have had some great success find coins and jewellery.
