2018-02-07 Oakville, Ontario

I received a text message from a fellow sled head Mark B to let me know his neighbour lost his 14k gold wedding band somewhere in the snow and to call him right away.

I call Tony H immediately. He advised that he was shovelling the snow and also walked down the road. He advised that the snow plow had just gone by. It was -7C and within 20 minutes of speaking to Tony H and headed down to Oakville.

As the story goes, Tony took off his gloves and within 5 minutes realized his wedding band came off. I started to grid search the driveway. Tony felt it could have been on the roadway so I continued onto the roadway. After 40 minutes I was drawn back to the driveway as the more questions I asked I felt he lost it when he took off his gloves. Within 5 minutes and 2′ off the driveway in 1′ of snow….BAM! Had a great tone on my Minelab Excalibur 2!! Tony was a great sport and very happy not to sleep outside in the dog house in the frigid temperatures!

Here’s a little video

 

July 31/17 Lost Gold Eagle pendant playing Volleyball @ Professors Lake~Brampton, Ontario

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

Received a phone call from a young man from Malton, Ontario. He was playing volleyball on the weekend with his Friends at the beach volleyball area at Professors Lake Brampton, Ontario when he noticed both his gold plated cross as well las his 14k gold eagle pendant was missing because his large chain was broken. He was heartbroken more the the eagle pendant was missing as is it was a gift from his Aunt.

After obtaining permission from City of Brampton staff to metal detect for the young mans jewellery, I met him there in the early evening. (Lucky I work for COB!!)

I started without him as the skies were getting dark and was worried we would have to leave due to the storm approaching and our personal safety. I started grinding the west beach court….then the east. Within 20 minutes after the young man showed up and advised he was in the south court….we found he precious 14k gold eagle pendant. No luck in finding his small gold plated cross but he didn’t mind.

He was gracious enough to make a donation to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation Snow Run 2018 Charity via my link!!

 

 

July 26/17 Lost precious wedding band during Charity Foam Run Clairville Conservation Area~Brampton, Ontario

from Brampton (Ontario, Canada)
Contact: 1-647-383-6891

I have great Friends who notified me that they had sent my ring finder information to a fellow Church member.

Boris T of Mississauga had recently lost weight and decided to participate in a 5km Charity FOAM run at Claireville Conservation Area in Brampton, Ontario.

Met Boris at the location immediately after work. He was AMAZING!! He had spoken to Friends that video taped his participation in the event. They narrowed down the location to the one FOAMED up obstacle. He had is beautiful wedding bank going into, up, over and when he came out…..his precious wedding band was GONE. Boris continued on to finish the race with a very sad heart. His 10th wedding Anniversary was coming up soon…..

I was a bit embarrassed that I had left my Minelab Excalibur2 detector on…the battery was dead. Thank goodness I had a back-up…the newly acquired Garrett AT Pro which I had only played around with. UNDER TWO MINUTES…..I FOUND HIS RING!!! I was amazing…..Boris was overcome with happiness. He was truly so grateful and happy.
