They're a lot different types of metal detecting and a lot of different places you can go to metal detect. We will look at three different ways to metal detect water and beach detecting, gold prospecting, and treasure detecting.

This is one of the fastest growing types of metal detecting as until recently metal detectors were not readily available for underwater detecting. Metal detectors can search at depths of up to 200 feet which is more than sufficient for your area river, lake, or pond.

You can basically go anywhere and start metal detecting and find some type of treasure.
Where you metal detect and the places you go is completely up to you, but one thing is for certain there is a lot of treasure out there to be had if you're on the lookout you can snag it.
