  • Land/Shallow Water Search

Cost For My Service

For the Cabell County area my cost is entirely reward based (Whatever you feel my service is worth to you) for the surrounding counties there may also be a charge of $20, for my driving expense.

Search Types

In or underground metal recovery, and water metal recovery 5 foot deep or less when water temperatures are warm enough. I have the upmost respect for private property. All holes dug will be filled, and property will be left in better shape than when I started detecting it.

Search Locations

Huntington, WV and surrounding area.

    The most important tool ring finders have is our metal detectors. A treasure hunter without a metal detector is like an angler without a fishing rod.
