detectorist
 n.— «Just because you’ve got a metal detector doesn’t entitle you to charge unbidden onto other people’s property, Alan cautions. Detectorists must obtain permission to go onto private turf and must register with public lands, state, county and town officials prior to going on those pieces of real estate, too.» —“Club members keep digging for buried treasures” by Valerie Zehl Press & Sun-Bulletin (Binghampton, New York) Dec. 18, 2008.
