Metal Detecting for a lost Gold Wedding Band, Spanish Banks Beach, Vancouver

  • from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)

I received a call this afternoon from a young man by the name of John who lost his wedding band at Spanish Banks beach. He was playing volleyball the day before and felt his ring come off his finger on the very first hit of the ball. He told me he spent 15 minutes searching the sand and finally gave up the search.

We arranged to meet at the beach after he was done at work around 5 pm, because it was a day later and at the volleyball court I told him that we could’ve been beaten to the punch as there are lots of treasure hunters out there looking for gold. One saving factor was that there was 24 volleyball courts in this area, I knew that he had a good chance to get his ring back but you have to prepare for the worst…

John told me that his wife was very understanding and he wasn’t in the doghouse for losing his ring, but it would sure be nice to find it…

We made sure we were on the right court (Court 9) John showed me the area he believed his ring was lost in and I began my search. I knew it would be a quick search if the ring was there but I wasn’t finding it in the area John thought it was lost.

After about 8 minutes of searching I gave John my ring and asked him to put it on his finger and pretend he was hitting the volleyball so I could see the direction the ring went. It went left and that told me that it had to be further left of my grid and bang! Found it…




I love seeing gold in the scoop and the smile that comes with the recovery.

After talking to John I found out that tomorrow was his 4th wedding anniversary… it was Perfect timing to get his ring back!





Happy Anniversary John!


I love my job!
