First outing with the SImplex +

Got a chance to take my Simplex out for the first time this weekend. On Saturday, I hunted my backyard which has been in my family since the early 1900’s and found a sterling silver ring and several clad pennies. Sunday, I went to a friend’s property with several foundations dating to the mid 1800’s. It was loaded with old iron, but I was able to find an equipment token for the Old New Straitsville mine which in 1884, striking miners pushed burning coal cars into the mine owned by the New Straitsville Mining Company, setting the mine ablaze. The fire still burns underground to this day.

It's definitely interesting history and depending where you are in the area you have to be careful where you walk or you may find yourself falling into the mine.
