- Land/Shallow Water Search
Cost For My Service
Metal detecting equipment is expensive and I appreciate receiving a finder’s fee if I recover your lost item. I take the bull dog approach and do not quit without expending my best effort. I do not expect any payment other than the call out fee if the search is unsuccessful. I ask that you pay what you think is fair and reasonable if I can recover your lost item.
Conventional metal detector searches of beaches, parks, yards, water’s edge (wading), parking lots; I go anywhere that is accessible with proper permission. It is your responsibility to obtain written permission from the property owner; I will act as your agent
I am close to many major freeways and will travel longer distances if necessary. I have a $20.00 call out fee and add .50 per mile over 20 miles.
Kensington Metro Park, Island Lake State Park, Brighton Recreation Area, and Proud Lake Recreation Area, are all within 20 miles of my home.
Dan Beale's Bio
I have hunted treasure all my life. My prizes include relics, agates, minerals, jewelry, and thousands of coins. My first and best treasure story involves a gold nugget I found many years ago at the base of a glacier in western Canada. My first metal detector still works and is over 25 years old. I enjoy the challenge of metal detecting and will have fun recovering your lost item.
