The Metal Detecting Code of Ethics

Just a few simple guidelines we try to hunt by

1.Try to avoid plugging, but if you you absolutely must, ALWAYS fill your holes.
2. Limit your digging tools to a probe, a knife or a small serrated trowel when searching parks, schools or other public property.
3. Leave your searching area cleaner then you found it by removing the trash you find.
4. When detecting the beach fill ANY holes which may endanger joggers or others.
5. Obtain permission before searching any privately owned property.
6. Be a friendly and courteous ambassador for the West Coast Prospectors and Treasure Hunters Association.
