What We Do
The Old North State Detectorists
is an association of ethical metal detecting hobbyists
Located in the Piedmont-Triad area of central North Carolina
We will search your yard or homestead to find and recover lost items and relics. Have you found something and are just curious what it is? Contact us!
Metal Detecting is our hobby. The fact that you can't predict what you'll find every time you hunt makes metal detecting fun and rewarding. Some items uncovered might include nails, discarded pieces of iron and wire, keys, bottle caps, shotgun shell casings, jar lids of all types, and pulltabs, which we call trash or junk. Then there are times you will locate some sort of jewelry item or clad coin and occasionally that treasured old silver coin or historical artifact.
Call us if you've lost that wedding ring or jewelry in the yard or lake. Our members have a multitude of different styles of land & water metal detector machines to search lawns, gardens, underwater locations near shore, and boat docks. Deep ground searches up to 30 feet in depth can be performed with our 2-box style deep seeking detector. While searching your property, metal trash such as old rusted nails, bits of lead, aluminum, and iron will be removed at no charge.

We help the Archaeology folks too...
See our Historical & Archaeological Work page for locations where the Old North State Detectorists have helped locate, recover, and preserve history for future generations.
Occasionally, a club meeting will be held in the field at a hunt site prior to the start time.
Be sure to check the Calendar of Events page for the latest information and location map.
Members will be emailed the location and address of secret hunt sites several days prior to the event. Open site hunts will be displayed on the web page with a location map and weather forcast box.
Guests are welcome to attend the meetings and observe the hunts, but must be a current club member to participate.
