Every day, important historical artifacts are lost due to such factors as land development and decay in the ground.   Detecting365’s goal is to support the detecting community by sharing informative aimed at assisting detectorists of all levels meet the challenges they face in the field related to such things as research, permission, equipment and technique.   We want to see as many relics saved as possible.

Founded in 2013, Detecting365’s mission is to support jewelry, coin and relic hunters through:

  • Informative, yet entertaining, detailed articles aimed at assisting detectorists of all skill levels (beginner through expert/veteran) continuously improve their detecting skills
  • In 2016 and beyond, the detecting environment is different than it was 30 years ago.  We provide completely new detecting concepts and techniques aimed at hunting sites that have been heavily hunted yet produced relics in the past.   Many of these concepts sound crazy and/or unconventional, but they have been proven to work.
  • To promote detectorists that write useful articles and create useful videos by syndicating their content and exposing to our fanbase.  These detectorists receive the credit, blog and video traffic from our site.  Contact us if you would like to add your content to Detecting365 at no cost.

Clark Rickman has been detecting over 30 years – since 1983.   Among other things, he has dug over 1200 silver coins, rare Confederate plates and buttons, and a George Washington Inaugural button, all using the techniques freely available on Detecting365.   Clark has an engineering background, and sees detecting as a never-ending continuous improvement process.  He is continually experimenting and looking for new methods to add any small advantage to his techniques.  Clark’s hunting partners will provide testament that he is a master at permission, and his passion and detecting skills are without question among the best in the nation.  He is known for consistently rescuing considerable relics from some of the most hunted out sites in Middle Tennessee.  Clark was recently recognized by the Middle Tennessee Metal Detecting Club with the title of MASTER HUNTER, the club’s highest annual honor.  Clark enjoys writing and sharing his continuous improvement detecting journey  – incorporating both traditional and unconventional techniques – with Detecting365’s audience.

Detecting365 spends thousands of dollars per year on personnel, server fees, software, and support of detecting organizations such as the Middle Tennessee Metal Detecting club in the form of an annual sizable cash donation, and providing monthly prizes such as detecting equipment and finds to raise money for the club’s operating expenses.

Beginning in 2016, we are negotiating with major manufacturers and distributors to advertise their products to over 25,000 monthly visitors to offset our considerable expenses.  For more information, please contact us for more information or to schedule a phone conversation or on-site presentation.
