Lecture Series: “Gold is where you find it, or not”, Larry Martin

October 18, 2018 @ 7:00 pm

Metal Detectors, Visual Observation, Buried Treasure and
“Gold is where you find it, or not”


This fascinating lecture will discuss and demonstrate how to visually identify gold and silver on the surface of the ground and better yet how to find it with a metal detector. I think we all agree on one thing with regards to digging for gold and treasure – finding it quickly & regularly isn’t possible without the best gold detector. There’s no two-ways about it, investing in a less than adequate device simply isn’t going to work and will likely end in nothing more than sheer frustration. Larry’s lecture and demonstration is to ease the burden for budding newbies and also the more experienced who are interested in improving their chances of finding gold. Various metal detectors will be demonstrated at the lecture. Bring your detectors to the lecture and let’s have some fun testing them out.
