Lost Gold Ring at White Pines Lake in Poco…Found!

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)











After a couple of nice sunny summer days (finally) the phone started to ring. This young man had lost his white gold wedding band in five feet of water at White Pine Beach in Poco. This lake is beautiful and you are not allowed to search here without permission. I received permission to find the ring and leave, this was good news as you could imagine how important it was for him to have it found. He’d only been married for nine months and I could tell how bad he felt about losing his ring. My only chance of finding his ring would be if it was in the first 5 feet of water, as I don’t dive…But we do have a diver from Squamish who would’ve come out to help, if it was deeper then I could search. I started my search and it was pretty quite with only a couple of signals before I got the loud proud signal that turned out to be his white gold wedding band.




Because the young man took reference marks of the area the ring was lost in, it made my job so much easier! This could have taken many hours of searching if he didn’t mark the area the ring was lost…That being said after this quick search I headed out on another water search where someone had lost their ring but couldn’t tell me where it came off their finger…The search area was as long as a soccer field and I spent 5 hours with no luck…So if you think I find everything, I don’t, I can only find what is there to be found.

Thanks for reading my blog!

Metal Detecting…For a Lost BMW Car Key in Poco BC…

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I received a call from a young lady who found my metal detecting service on the internet today.

She had lost her BMW car key that her husband threw to her but unfortunately he threw it to hard and it landed in the bushes behind her… so they thought.

They had spend over 3 hours searching for the key and the lady had to take a day off work as she only had the one key.

The cost to have a new key cut would of been outrageous! I had to find this key for them!

When I arrived at the location her husband was still in the bushes digging around.

I took my VW key off my keychain and asked if it was similar to the key they had lost and he said it was.

I then asked him to go to the spot from where he threw the key, then I had his wife stand where she was when he threw it to her.

I then told him to throw my key the same way he did with his key… He thought I was crazy because If I couldn’t find my key then I’d be stuck there…But I knew I’d find it with my detector, if need be so.

This proved to be a good thing as I got to see the direction and how far the key flew in the air. It was in the other lot on the other side of the fence, so I started my search there and within 5 minutes I got a good signal and her husband moved the bushes and there was the key!

It wasn’t a diamond ring…But the smile was just as big!

I love my job!
