With all due respect, this does not represent the environment we encounter in ghost towns. They are littered with what we call a "carpet of nails". For this reason, very rarely can you setup a detector for maximum depth and dsicrimination, as you will be deluged with nails and rusty tin can slaw.

As Monte has pointed out many times, most goodies are to be found on the surface because targets don't sink - in fact they can get uncovered by wind and rain. They will be surrounded by the aforementioned trash. Detectors have a hard enough time picking out the coin in the NBT or the Plank test IN AIR. If buried, in our environment, you can bet there's MORE trash on top of it and below it.
