About Girls Rock Metal Detecting


Girls Rock Metal Detecting was born out of a single YouTube video after Siren Kimmie, the HDIC (Head Darling In Charge) of Girls Rock Metal Detecting was asked to "take over" Thrills in the Dig's YouTube channel for one day. The response was overwhelming. It was at that moment Siren Kimmie decided to start a channel of her own, not only as an means of documenting her finds, but as an outlet for her creative side, and to celebrate the ladies of metal detecting.

GRMD History

July 2015 Girls Rock Metal Detecting made it's debut on YouTube, with a Facebook page (Girls Rock Metal Detecting), blog (Girls Rock Metal Detecting The Blog), and website (GirlsRockMetalDetecting.com) soon to follow. Often showcasing lady diggers and their finds, Girls Rock Metal Detecting's aim was to foster a postive spirit and encoruage women (along with their male counterparts) to support one another throughout the community.

The summer of 2019 saw Girls Rock Metal DetectingHeavy Metal Detecting teaming up to integrate the rockinst, relicist, ladies and gents in the world, together in one Facebook community. Not only a place to share finds and experiences but We Rock Metal Detecting serves as a hub for educating all levels of detectorists with a libarary full of useful information which is continually being updated.
