As I was lounging around, thought I would open some boxes I packed 3 years ago when I came to Cebu and retired from California. One of my hobbies was using a metal detector around beaches and parks. So thought I would tune up my detectors (Whites MXT for rings/coins and GMT used for gold nuggets and such). I checked the internet for detecting in the Philippines and only saw license requirement if you are hunting treasure, else public lands(beaches) are permitted, private land with permission. My brother-in-law has some land in the foothills that has strange Japanese marking in stone and has an unexplored cave nearby. I know about being cautious cuz some areas might be booby-trapped. I found some documents for Japanese markings here from WW2. I will be checking that area soon. Anyone have any experience in this area. Also, I live in Cebu and looking for some nice sandy beaches nearby. On the western side it is pretty much rocks for beach. Not a good medium to detect thru. Any detectorists out there I can converse with? Today after tune up and new batteries, tried out the field in front of my house. Walking along I had about 15 kids helping out to dig the spots. Alot of bottle caps, but for 1 hour I did manage to find P19 in coin. Kids were impressed! Just need to find better location.
