Isnt that just the opposite of what it should have done if the halo is true? Didn't you break the halo? Or was there iron in the hole too?
Yes on both. It is backwards of what I would have expected but I'm guessing there must have been an iron halo that had leached from a piece of iron nearby that once broke up allowed the better conductive signal.

All I can say is to try it. No it isn't 100% but it has become a common process for me on those really deep iffy's that could be iron or coin. More often than not it will change once you stomp it. Trust the stomp LOL.

As far as silver and gold they won't halo as much as copper, but the stomp will change the ground matrix and in doing so change the returned signal.
