Welcome to the Stone Mountain Treasure Hunters Website!

The Stone Mountain Treasure Hunters metal detecting club is dedicated to the preservation, promotion, and protection of the hobby of recreational metal detecting.  The club is made up of people around the metro Atlanta, Georgia area.

Currently, our membership includes approximately 40 members of all ages, ranging from those with over 30 years of experience metal detecting to the newcomers in this fantastic hobby of treasure hunting. Our treasure hunting club activities include monthly meetings, social hunts, and competition metal detecting hunts for silver coins and prizes. Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings in Duluth, Georgia so come on down and get in on the action.

It is our desire that you will find our treasure hunting club website informative, educational and entertaining. Our metal detecting club membership is mainly interested in three faucets of treasure hunting: these are coinshooting, beach and water hunting, and Civil War relic hunting. We also have members interested in gold prospecting, bottle hunting, rock & gem collecting, and Indian artifacts. Some of our members are owners of mini digger hire company, so you can contact them for bigger explorations.

Stone Mountain Treasure Hunters club would like to extend an invitation to anyone interested in metal detecting to attend one of our monthly treasure hunting meetings. Visitors are given a "goodie bag" with product literature from the various metal detector manufactures, sponsoring metal detector dealers info, a metal detecting magazine, and treasure hunting promotional items.

Most meetings will include a presentation from one of the members or a guest speaker on metal detecting equipment, target recovery methods, how to clean and protect your finds, historical information research or other treasure hunting related topics.

Robert was searching the playgrounds of a local area school and saw this beauty laying on top of the ground. A 14 K gold ring with diamonds, engagement portion of a wedding ring set. The appraisal for this item was ~$3200. Robert uses a Milelab 705.

Congratulations Robert!


Back in January of this year, Andy Cohen found this rare civil war item of two three ringer bullets that had directly collided in mid-air. It was found at a local civil war battle site. Andy was using a Minelab Explorer II.

Congratulations Andy!
