strange find
« on: December 25, 2017, 09:57:08 AM »
hello to all members I'm new here so if you can help? I have attached a pic of what I found about 1 meter under ground in Cebu, I'm just a little confused regarding the 2 different rocks and shapes, I've covered the hole underneath these rocks so nothing falls in and I used my metal detector in the discrimination mode to just gold and its reading high around 90, can someone lighten my curiosity please?

What do you mean "two different rock shapes"? I see abunch of rocks there and nothing that sticks out as any kind of marker. The two layers seem different and could potentially indicate a burial but it could also be natural.

What metal detector are you using? Is that the Nokta Goldenking? Dont get too excited about the reading just yet. You may have something and you may not. I dug up a lot of junk with my Makro Jeohunter because it kept telling me rusted steel was gold and "100% valuable".

What made you start digging there in the first place?

thanks kilonova I meant the two different colors as when we were digging the dark color rock was very hard to break and as we broke it underneath the dirt/soil was very loose. I'm using a garrett 400 so when I put the detector under the dark color rock it sent a high reading in discrimination mode just on gold,
There are no pipes cables or structure there it's on the hills in Cebu knowing the locals and married to a philipina makes it easier. We have 2 sites and one is guaranteed of a find. As my wifes grand mother has been in that mountain all her life, she knows there was a Japanese camp site there on the mountain hill as we own property there so no problems with digging in private.
I will keep you posted with pics and videos and hopefully some loot.

Cheers
