Typical ghost town mask

May 13, 2019 08:09PM
I ran another experiment today. I put my IH into my moderately mineralized test bed at 3". I still maintain there are processes that could cause a coin to get this deep. I actually don't think it needs to be that deep for this experiment to prove worthy.

Anyway, I place ONE piece of rusted can slaw on the top surface of the dirt above the coin, and the coin was no longer detectable. The slaw I used was picked up at a ghost town for the very purpose of using it for testing. Actually I have a bunch of it :-)

See the pic for the slaw I think anyone who's ever hunted a ghost town, has seen plenty of!

There are so many variables, we have to recognize that there is no 'perfect' in "The Real World."
