Platinum Wedding Band Found..!! Toronto, Ontario.

  • from North York (Ontario, Canada)

I took a call from Nick this morning about his platinum wedding band he had lost last night while playing indoor volleyball at North Beach Volleyball in Toronto.
We agreed to meet this afternoon Wednesday October 17, 2012 at noon when North Beach opens for the day.

Nick had already gained permission for us to search for the ring, but I was warned that because it is inside a warehouse, the concrete under the sandy volleyball courts was filled with rebar.


I met Nick at noon and he showed me where he had been playing the night before on one of the courts.

He wasn’t quite sure where on the court the ring was lost as he was spiking the ball and diving for it as well so I decided to start a grid search from one end of the court to the other.

After getting my gear together and turning on my detector, I could tell right away that was a lot of electrical interference from inside the warehouse and could also clearly hear the rebar beneath the sand.
I lowered the sensitivity on my machine and only listened for strong, repeatable targets.

After a few minutes we found a few coins and on my second lane of the grid, I got a nice heavy hit in my earphones. After pinpointing the area and using my pin pointer, I was happy to see Nick’s ring come out of the sand.

I’m happy we found this fast as there was so much interference in the warehouse. It would have made a long search very difficult.

Nice to meet you today Nick and I’m really happy I could help out.

Take care,

Mark Ellis
