Accurate Locators Inc. Metal Detector Testimonial by Mark McIntyre

In 2002 I purchased my first metal detector. Through the rest of the year I familiarized myself with the detector and different detecting areas and one of the best spots that I found was the Covered Bridge in Wimer Oregon.

There used to be a picnic area there and the bridge was build in the early 1920's so I was hoping to find coins from that period - which I did. I found two mercury head dimes, and lot of wheat pennies. I became pretty familiar with the sounds that the unit made, this particular unit didn't have a meter on it - tone recognition only.

In 2003 I moved to Hawaii - my son invited me to come over and stay with him for a while so I shipped my belongings and my detector. Being resort beaches I was hoping to find lots of jewelry and whatever. I would go out early in the morning to the beaches before the crowds came out. There were certain beaches where I knew the majority of the tourists went and I searched those beaches the most. I wasn't having very good success finding anything of value, but found a lots of old room resort keys, old tent equipment - metal stakes - lots and lots of aluminum pop tabs and bottle caps, but no success at finding anything valuable.

Over the weeks that I detected the beaches I found one very expensive diamond & and platinum ring. One that looked just like it is shown here.

The ring was found at the water line during low tide, the coil was submerged. As fast as I could dig a hole it filled up on me. Finally after a lot of very fast digging - I was using a plastic scoop - I finally got down deep enough that the scoop pulled up enough sand with the object inside. After sifting through the sand, to my surprise, was this beautiful diamond and platinum ring.

I didn't know what to do. I realized at the time that the ring had been in the water a long time. The setting was quite bent in. 3-stone channel set. No stones were missing. I felt I should go report the finding of the ring. But I didn't. Being my first find of any value I was so happy and so excited, I instantly took the ring down to the local pawn shop and had it appraised. It was appraised at $3k and I eventually sold to the pawn shop for $1500. After that there was another long session of recovering nothing until one day I was back at the water line using the same detector and this time I recovered a silver and garnet ring, with the aid of the sand scoop. All and all I had a great time and the detector paid for itself many times over.

Thanks Accurate for the great recommendation!

Testing the Gold Hill Legend (Gold Hill Pocket Mine, Oregon) Metal Detection Equipment Testing

Testing the Gold Hill Legend

By Mindy Michener

In 1857, the dream came true. Gold that would have sold for more than $14 million at today’s prices was ripped from the side of a minor mountain somewhere in the land surrounding the small town of Gold Hill , Oregon (Mayo). This was no mere placer dust; the miners came back victorious from the hills loaded with pure, solid nuggets sledgehammered directly from the rock.

Today the legendary Gold Hill gold fever lives on in father-son prospecting team Wayne and Chris Good and their local friend, Gary Michener. Michener, a fourteen-year local in the region, has been prospecting a nearby location on Gold Hill private property for years now, pulling out about four ounces in gold. His take has been mostly dust garnered via a pickaxe, a rock crusher and a genie- not the most high tech way to mine. The going was slow, but gradually Michener became convinced that there was a fantasy pocket just waiting to be found somewhere very, very close.

The lode and he circled around each other for years; he was unable to pinpoint it exactly, coming upon only frustrating traces. With the technology of the Goods, however, that all changed. Wayne is the owner of Accurate Locators, Inc., with an office in Gold Hill itself. His company provides some of the most modern equipment available today for surveying and finding underground objects, from old dumps to quartz veins to buried treasure. Michener took the big guns up to his prospecting grounds and finally, what he’d suspected was confirmed; all the conditions were right for a big pocket.

The gear Wayne Good made available works differently from standard metal detectors, which were what Michener had been relying on. Instead of sending out a signal and then sounding when a target bounces it back, his USA equipment, or “Underground Surveyor Apparatus” functions in a way that allows much more precise locating and analysis of an item and therefore, less labor wasted digging fruitless holes or finding junk (Tyson). The USAs measure differences and can be calibrated to distinguish between very specific types of matter, depending on what specifically the user is searching for. They measure the electromagnetic field of the ground, showing any variances on the computer 3D software in vibrant color (Accurate 7-8). Michener found their pulse with blanket antennas are easy to use, even for ‘old-timer’ used to more mundane methods.

Up in the densely wooded mountains of Gold Hill, Michener and the Goods tramped around on dirt roads and through poison oak, knowing the prize was just underfoot. They used pulse induction, an advanced R&D special receiver, and electromagnetic tools to target two large, potentially profitable quartz veins running down the mountain, almost directly in the area Michener had zeroed in on over time, and was able to trace gold veins with Wayne ’s specially designed vein tracer. Today, their digging has yielded even more evidence that a large pocket, retrieving a nice gold trace lies very near, waiting to be found. If the reputation of Gold Hill holds true, someday soon it will earn its name once again and Michener will finally track down the treasure that has eluded him so far. The treasure waits just out of reach, but now, not for long.

The USA Imager Underground Surveyor Apparatus™ Uncovers An Ancient Tomb In Turkey!

Archaeologist Viewing Tomb At 10.14 ft. (3 meters) & Gold At 24-26 ft. Deep

Treasure Found In Tomb
Archaeologists detecting with the USA Imager Underground Surveyor and in the process of discovering where the Ancient Tomb In Turkey is located. The treasure image in Turkey was later located by the legal and invited archaeologists who's mission was to see if they could locate an image of the tombs with a USA Imager Underground Surveyor. This treasure and a large amount of gold were in the tombs.

Yet don't go there and hunt without all of the permits in place. Twenty American treasure hunters are serving 10 years each for hunting without a permit.

Turkey is known for treasure and it is called the cradle of much civilization. Abraham brought his father there to Haran. The Assyrians, Sumerians, Hitties, Seleucids, Greeks, Romans and Ottoman Empire all possessed it at one time or another. It is the bridge between Europe, Asia, and near the East. The ancients have buried there people with their fortunes for thousands of years.

The archaeologists searched for the unknown target (a royal tomb, thousands of years old). The USA Imager Underground Surveyor equipment allowed them to discover the depth and approximate amount of gold buried in each tomb which was removed by the officials from the Turkish government.

Artifacts Located In Mexico With Multi Sensor!

Stone Artifact
From Jalisco Mexico!
Hello Accurate Locators,

I have your 3-D Multi Sensor Pro and the scanner works beautifully and we have learned a lot through digging. On my site in Jalisco Mexico, I passed the scanner 4 times for 7 seconds each row and we noticed 3 dark blue targets. One of the targets showed 1.9 meters deep so I talked to the people and we decided to dig.
In 3 hours of digging, we got to a stone. A stone that was more like a block, with only soft dirt around it. The stone turned out to be 24 inches wide by 36 inches long. When we lifted the stone, we saw some jewelry and some stone and cooking items. As I lifted the one side, it broke some of the dishes, as we were not prepared to find something like this. We then started digging toward the other blue targets and found more cooking stuff.
New 3-D Software!

At other sites, we have found many other things including large hacienda keys 12 inches long. We are looking forward to upgrading to your Runabout scanner very soon.

Manuel from Jalisco
