What is a “Detector Hunt Party?”
The Lost Dutchman’s Mining Association (LDMA), hosts multiple detector hunts and training across the United States each year. Participants will take advantage or industry leaders to educate the use of a metal detector, teach techniques and then swing their detectors in the search of hunting for all types of coins, silver, tokens and more. All participants will receive an extra “goodie or two” just for joining the treasure festivities.
It is more than just Swinging a detector. . . .
You will meet people from all over the country, that love the thrill of what they can unearth when they hear mineral tones fill their headphones. Always a good time for all … even the kids too!
Multiple Hunts and trainings . . . plus a few competiotions!
There are hunts for everybody … brand new to detecting, the pro, and even kids will hunt for treasures.
