My opinion mmmmm; well my opinion on the title, honest, no I would not pay the farmer to detect on his land…

Yet when you attend a rally, or an organised dig nine times out of ten the farmer receives financial compensation for fifty or so camouflaged, water boot wearing, scary people to traipse around his land, digging up all of the green-waste he has just spread around his fields, with a smattering of finds or scrap just to tease the person paying for the privilege, or is that just me being cynical…

So what happens when a newly formed club in your area, sets a presdents of approaching a farmer offering £200 a day to detect ? well that’s just, what happened to me, three of my farmers have said yes, where does that leave me, well im not laughing that’s for sure, although all three have said, I do not have to pay, and any privileges I had / have remain in place, for example one of the farmers has stopped all digging operations by the new club, due to the fields being sown, yet I am still allowed to detect until I think its wise not to, so I will carry on until the seedlings are around the two inch tall mark, then I will leave well alone…

Am I unhappy or peed off, yes, but who would turn down £ 200 cash to let someone detect for six hours on a field, and then claim more finance from the group if they find something, I will not blame the farmer, but this is whats happening now to a niche hobby that was once the reserve of a bunch of weird folk walking around with flower pots on sticks, there are more and more people doing the hobby and they have to go somewhere, I have detecting permissions that refuse people to detect because they have someone, but when a paying customer rocks up with £200 for doing nothing, what do you or can you say, except “thank you”

Anti-Metal Detecting in Essex;

No matter what you try to make of this, it is an antiquated outlook, basically saying we are untrustworthy, yet these are the people who are willing to accept anything we find with open arms, a typical, money grabbing body with archaeologists steering the behemoth towards having everything they believe in, but like the origins, behemoth ended up shackled as a pet…

Why, i wonder do people follow like cattle, to the ongoing tirades of archaeologists that to this day are still taught i quote “metal detectors, are useful on archaeology digs, and only in expert hands” un-quote…

it amazes me people will walk & fawn to the death of this hobby, as those that care are getting older, and the new hobbyists are shackled more and more…

Justice is Served;

I have permission to use this from a blog put out by First Texas, which owns Teknetics, this is about the ruling from the American Justice Department & there ruling on counterfeiting crimes against First Texas….

First Texas Products Wins Judgment Against Counterfeiters

First Texas Products Wins Judgment Against Counterfeiters in The United States District Court, First Texas Products, LLC has won a judgment against manufacturers and resellers of counterfeit metal detectors. In its July 31, 2018 order, the court rules that the counterfeiters “are permanently enjoined from manufacturing, importing, purchasing, distributing, selling, or offering for sale any counterfeit metal detector …”
“Guilty as charged,” exclaimed Tim Mallory, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for First Texas. “Guilty in China, guilty in Africa and now guilty in the United States of America.”
“We got ‘em,” said Tom Walsh, President of First Texas. “After chasing the Chinese counterfeiters and their criminal organizations around the globe and learning how certain foreign countries facilitate and inspire counterfeiting of our patents, copyrights, registered trademarks and registered trade names, we now enlist the weight of the U.S. legal system to stop them from conducting their criminal activities within our borders.”
First Texas designs and manufactures metal detectors under the Bounty Hunter®, Teknetics® and Fisher Research Labs® brand names. Years ago, several Chinese factories began conspiring with criminal organizations in the Middle East to produce counterfeit gold prospecting detectors after witnessing the commercial success of First Texas brands in African gold fields. After stealing substantial amounts of First Texas intellectual property, the counterfeiters began selling counterfeit hobby metal detectors in many of First Texas’ main markets, including in the United States and the European Union.
Permanently enjoined from selling their counterfeit products are Shanghai Tianxun Electronic Equipment Company, Ltd, Shanghai Zhangdu Electronic Commerce Co., Ltd d/b/a KingDetector, TheSellingPost.Biz, LLC and Costway.com.

now the above in my opinion, is fantastic news, no more scams etc, well done to the company for achieving this… This is the only company bothering to do this at the moment, as both Minlab & Garret have illegal copy’s out there, which people are buying unwittingly thinking they are the genuine article, when in reality they are very poor quality “knock-off’s” – another thing First Texas has done for customer piece of mind, is to install digitally, the unique code which is your Metal Detectors “Serial Number” when you switch on your metal detector it will run through a serious of numbers, this is your unique “serial number” to your machine, when you first purchase your Teknetics product, you take a note of the serial number, pop it into an email and send it off to First Texas, who then send you back immediately, a confirmation email & thanking you for your purchase of a genuine First Texas product… Easy safe & a great piece of mind…

Reidite…

Ultra-rare mineral that only forms when meteorites slam into Earth discovered for only the sixth time, its called Reidite & forms when meteorites hit with enough pressure to transform zircon, It was found in drill core samples from the buried Woodleigh impact crater, researchers are working to find out if crater’s diameter is greater than 100km..

being an extremely rare mineral that only forms when rocks from space slam into the earth’s crust with immense pressure, this was found in Western Australia, the sixth discovery in the world so far, Curtin University geology student Morgan Cox was working on her thesis and testing drill core samples from the buried Woodleigh impact crater, near Shark Bay, that had been stored in a shed since 2001 when she spotted reidite., it is the first time the mineral has been discovered in Australia, the rare metal forms when meteorites hit the earth with enough pressure to transform the common mineral zircon. Curtin University geology student Morgan Cox was working on her thesis and testing drill core samples from the buried Woodleigh impact crater, near Shark Bay, that had been stored in a shed since 2001 when she spotted reidite
Senior research fellow Aaron Cavosie said it was a microscopic mineral and all of the known occurrences on earth would probably amount to the size of a grain of rice.
‘It’s such an uncommon mineral. It’s always a chance discovery,’ Dr Cavosie told AAP.
The research team is now using numerical modelling to refine the size of Woodleigh, and if its diameter is greater than 100km, it will be the largest-known impact crater in Australia.
The crater is buried below younger sedimentary rocks, so its size is not known and remains hotly debated.
‘Previous research estimated the size of the impact crater between 60km and more than 120km in diameter,’ Ms Cox said.

‘However, our discovery of reidite near the base of the core suggests a larger crater.’
Impacts that cause craters bigger than 100km in diameter are big enough to cause mass extinctions.
The Chicxulub crater in Mexico, which was caused by an impact believed to have killed off the dinosaurs 66 million years ago, is 180km in diameter.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF SPACE ROCKS?
An asteroid is a large chunk of rock left over from collisions or the early solar system. Most are located between Mars and Jupiter in the Main Belt.
A comet is a rock covered in ice, methane and other compounds. Their orbits take them much further out of the solar system.
A meteor is what astronomers call a flash of light in the atmosphere when debris burns up.
This debris itself is known as a meteoroid. Most are so small they are vapourised in the atmosphere.
If any of this meteoroid makes it to Earth, it is called a meteorite.
Meteors, meteoroids and meteorites normally originate from asteroids and comets.
For example, if Earth passes through the tail of a comet, much of the debris burns up in the atmosphere, forming a meteor shower.
Dr Cavosie said the research team would also try to narrow down the age of Woodleigh, which is estimated to have been made 360 million years ago.
He said he hoped Ms Cox would inspire others to study geology.
‘She’s a superstar of a student,’ Dr Cavosie said.
‘Not many years ago, Morgan was in a high school class and here she is making a major discovery.
‘You can make tiny observations and make huge discoveries.’ Reidite has been found in craters in the US, Germany and China, ultra-rare mineral discovered in Australia reveals buried site of ancient meteorite impact

Sword…

The inquisitive eight-year-old only moved to the country last summer and her father is an avid Minnesota Vikings fan, whose daughter has now found a viking swords

 

Note the use of Metal Detectors in the background behind Saga, there being used to search for other relics….

Queen Saga that’s what the locals jokingly say the Swedish girl, eight, who pulled 1,000-year-old sword from lake should be made a Queen….
The inquisitive eight-year-old only moved to the country last summer and her father is an avid Minnesota Vikings fan, whose daughter has now found a Viking swords
The eight-year-old girl has pulled an ancient sword from a lake, prompting locals to dub her the Queen of Sweden.
Saga Vanecek came across the rusted relic when swimming with her family at the Vidöstern lake in Tånnö, Sweden earlier this summer.
The blade is approximately 85 centimetres in length and still has preserved wood and metal surrounding it…

She told VN.se ‘I felt something with my hand and thought it was a stick and then I lifted it up and it had a handle that looked like it was a sword and then I lifted it up and shouted at Dad: Daddy I found a sword!’

The blade is approximately 85 centimetres in length and still has preserved wood and metal surrounding it
The finding of the historic blade has parallels with King Arthur who was given a divine right to rule after being given the legendary Excalibur by the Lady of the Lake.
The eight-year-old has now jokingly been referred to as the Queen of Sweden by locals, who are excited by the fascinating find.According to experts at the Jönköpings Läns Museum the weapon may be pre-viking in origin and is thought to be more than 1,000 years old and possibly date back to the 5th or 6th century.

After a further search of the lake a brooch was also found, with archaeologists excited about what else they may be able to uncover, ALSO Archaeologists are hoping to find other significant finds …a close up of a device: After a further search of the lake a brooch was also found.

The eight-year-old’s father, Andy Vanecek told Local: ‘Why it has come to be there, we don’t know,’
‘When we searched a couple of weeks ago, we found another prehistoric object; a brooch from around the same period as the sword, so that means – we don’t know yet – but perhaps it’s a place of sacrifice.
‘At first we thought it could be graves situated nearby the lake, but we don’t think that any more.’
Saga initially only told her best friend about the stunning find, but has now told the rest of her classmates, prompting a small party.

Unfortunately anyone hoping to get a closer look at the artifact is going to have to wait a year.
Mikael Nordström from the museum said: ‘The conservation process takes quite a long time because it’s a complicated environment with wood and leather, so they have several steps to make sure it’s preserved for the future.’
The inquisitive eight-year-old only moved to Sweden last year from Minneapolis in the US so they could be closer to her mother’s family.
Her father added: ‘The cool thing is that I’m a huge Minnesota Vikings fan, and this looks just like a Viking sword!’

What do you find…

On a lucky day…after traipsing around a field with a cold wind blowing a “hulie” and the only thing keeping your ears warm & from dropping off is your headphones, whilst your nose will not stop running, and your eyes are constantly watering, and the “GIVE UP” gene kicks in, but the disappointing failure side of you gives it another twenty steps, ten more minutes, anything to keep out there a little longer, nine times out of ten it does not pay off, but that one time, oh that one time, repays everything…
