Detecting and screening

September 06, 2018 06:06PM avatar
A few weeks ago I went to a logging camp I hunt frequently and tried a trick I heard Monte relate about hunting where we usually park. My parking spot did not yield coins, but I did find the Red Cross pin in the first picture. When I got home, cleaned it, and researched it I found it should have had a red "plus sign" in the center.

Another day I went back and took an 1/8" classifier with me, thinking I might get lucky and find the missing piece. I used my detector to locate a targa and then scooped the dirt into the classifier, screening the "target dirt." The items on the small blue square in the second picture are the results of the screening, nothing too exciting, but I wouldn't have found the button or the little toy man if I hadn't been using this method.

The rest of the hunt was typical detecting but there are so many signals it makes me wonder what else is hiding under the dirt. I like the compact half ( I think ) which appears to have a silhouette under a plastic cover.

Using small screening or sifting devices.
