Ontario recently had a heavy rain, high winds, followed up by a heavy snowfall.
I had a call from Tony in Caledon who lost a set of keys in the snow somewhere in his driveway.
Tony had fallen in a number of locations because there was ice below 12 inches of snow.
I grid searched the first location, then the second and onto the third with no luck. We circled back to the second location and I widened my grid area. Within a few minutes I had a multi tone hit on my detector, spotted a portion of the keys and proceeded to surprise Tony!
Check out the video of this recovery;
Tony was very happy to get his guys back!
Thank you very much for your donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation! My best fundraising year! Thank you!
Heather R from Milton, Ontario was recommended by a mutual Friend for me to assist in the recovery of her late Uncle Paul’s lost wedding band. He lost his wedding band approximately 6 or 7 years ago at a dock area of Pike Lake while washing his hands in the water. At the time of the lose they couldn’t find his ring and notched out a mark on the dock.
Heather, Greg & Max picked me up and proceeded promptly to Pike Lake that day.
I found a few items (fishing hook/coins and metal) and with-in 20 minutes I found her late Uncle’s wedding band. Heather proceeded to call her Aunt to verify and it was with happy tears confirmed to be his.
A few days later we all met Heather’s Aunt in Brampton for the joyous return of their now Family Heirloom.
I have myself a great new Friend of Heather and her Family and look forward to going back to Pike Lake (with permission) to clean up their beach!! Labour of Love!
Thank you Heather for you and your Aunt’s charitable donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation!! Grateful for your kindness!
Had a Facebook message from a great Friend Tracy A from Hillsburgh, Ontario. Ivan G, a fellow member of the Church was cleaning up the flower boxes in the front of the Church. Ivan arrived home to notice his wedding band was missing. This was his replacement wedding band after loosing a diamond filled wedding band at a golf course over 5 years ago.
I arrived the next evening with Tracy. Tracy filled me in on the details. This was a 2′ wide by 20′ to 25′ length flower box. The areas below the flower planter boxes was 2′ by 6′ roughly. This was a job for my GARRETT ‘CARROT’ PIN POINTER. So “grinding’ with the pin pointer was the plan of action!
I decided to do a live recovery video on “Facebook Live”. We checked the one side below the flower boxes….nothing. Moved over to the other side…I had to remove some of the “Erin Fall Fair” display. The metal chair the (stuffed) gentle was sitting on was in the way. Within 5 minutes I was very happy to find the massive SIZE 15 10k Platinum/Gold ring!! What a WHOOPER OF A RING!! Largest one for me to find!
We went into speak to the Minister. We decided not to keep Ivan in suspense…so Tracy called and left a message that his wedding ring will be waiting for him at Sunday Church.
I had a returned Ivan’s call and offered to help locate the beloved lost Ring #1!! Ivan was very grateful and is very kind in offering a donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Snow Run that I will be riding my snowmobile Feb 2017! This wonderful charity provide financial assistance to patients fighting this terrible disease!! “PAYING IT FORWARD”…rocks!! Here is a link to my “Metal Detecting for Charity” FB page <3 https://www.facebook.com/metaldetectingforcharity/
He said “I never knew there was such an organization of “The Ring Finders”!! I filled him in on the global directory of excellent Detectorists!!
I am looking forward to assisting in finding Ivan’s 1st lost wedding band at a Golf course in the near future!! Stay tuned….
