Default Georgia Metal Detecting Laws

Good Evening All,

It's been awhile since I've metal detected and I've been in Georgia for awhile but have been hesitant due to the laws here.

Does anyone have any updated guidance on the laws in Georgia? I have done a lot of searching, but can't find anything other than the Archaeology board or whatever saying that you need written permission to metal detect on Federal/State/Private property. I know that some counties may have different ordinances, but I can't find anything regarding the counties around me. I'm pretty hesitant to go out metal detecting (and don't want to ask for private property yet until I get used to digging plugs again).

Does anyone have any official or unofficial guidance? I'm in the Columbia/Richmond county area if that helps at all.

Thanks for the help!
