2019 Old Dominion Relic Dig


We Look Forward to a Great Hunt!

The Hanover Metal Detectors Club has sponsored this sell out event for the past 11 years.  We only open it to non-members (because we know where most of the treasures are!!!).

This year, our members will enjoyed a fun and eventful day.  

See the photos below of last year's hunt.

Our participants will find seeded and authentic Civil War relics in addition to tokens that will be redeemed for high value prizes - including new metal detectors.


2019 Event & Location

Our dig takes place rain or shine on Saturday November 9th.

The hunt is limited to the first 100 individuals registered. Registration deadline is October 25th 2019.

Every year, we provide two hunts on a Civil War site in Central Virginia and cater a delicious barbecue lunch in between.

Participants are notified of the location and directions two weeks before the event.

Diggers can expect to find tokens and "seeded" relics, in addition to the possibility of finding native relics.  Hunters can expect to get at least 60 hits.

Tokens are redeemed for prizes at the end of the hunt.
