Exploratory dig, 1890’s RR Site

March 06, 2021 09:01PM
The ground in Cache Valley (Utah) has finally thawed! I’ve had my eyes on an old railroad site for awhile but my main/close site keeps producing so I had been keeping it in my back pocket until it finally slowed down. My Dad is coming into town this weekend and it felt like a good excuse to go try this place out. I spent maybe 45 mins to an hour picking over a corner of the site. The ground is covered in a thick, matting of laid over weeds but the targets are only 1-3 inches in the ground. Nice, soft digging and I can cut sloppy plugs! Managed to recover a 1930 wheat, Utah tax token, pocket knife, old key, and a big number 2. No modern trash at all. I’m pretty optimistic about this site and really looking forward to seeing what it produces. I was using my Garret AT Max, 2 bars shy of full sensitivity, ground balance at 87, iron discrimination at 31 due to lots of nails.

I love RR sites, but avoid the "big number 2's".
