Re: A Ghost Town "hunt factor" - refinement

Well, my table was only a beginning and an idea, and I was looking for refinements and other variables to include.

Rich and Monte both alluded to the "age factor". So I've included a new variable in my calculation, an age factor. If a town was established in 1920, it gets a 1.0 multiplier. If 1850 1.7, with extrapolation in between. Other factors are very difficult to assign, since we don't know the exact populations on exact dates.

At least I think this new chart has some value.

Well George, as far as "Refinements & Variables" the sites you mention are easy to access public sites. Detectors have been out for approx 50 years or so. Generally, the easier sites have been well picked over more so than the more difficult to detect sites. One might say that the more difficult ( loaded iron/rusted tin) sites could hold more potential today

A Ghost Town "hunt factor" is a serious consideration. Been doing it since late 1968.
