I fully agree that the ferrous matrix means many things are masked. There is iron a foot deep at many of these sites. Find it all the time.

I have done what you are doing with magnets not as strong as yours but looks the same. In nevada, we managed hotel fobs and sheep tags following a 'cleansing'. At Lonesome arch i cleared a 10×15 foot area and pulled out a couple gallons of nails...and didn't come close to getting them all. The pile is still there. Finally gave up. Had to rake, then use the magnet. Nothing nonferrous rang through. They concrete in and the magnets i had would not pull them subsurface. Just too much iron to do any meaningful area.

Good luck. Curious to see how it works out.

Re: Real world masking hope your broom is as strong as the magnets. Some big iron in those old sites. N/T

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