You have a better shot with a pulse induction unit...maybe, even that type might not get that deep.
Something called a two box detector will get down that far but this type is best for finding large objects, caches, chests, boxes, large tools.
This kind won't be able to see smaller type targets at all, coins, jewelry...things like that.

Keep researching, you seem to have some specific needs that only a limited numbers of specialty type detectors can fill.
Ok i get it. sorry for keeping bothering you.
Average soil deep is what 1 foot maybe?
i have seen again others detectors, what do you think of?

- minelab gofind20
