Metal Detecting Wet Ground

Recommended Posts

I always thought that my detector ran better on damp ground.  I run a VLF and it might be different with a PI.  I hate soggy wet ground especially when it fills up with water all the time.

Hey Fishing8046,

   I have noticed over the years with the Pulse Induction metal detectors I have been able to get more depth and found gold I missed.  I'm not sure if the ground is more conductive, or if the wet ground is eliminate more ground noise.  That being said, it's seems to work with the PI's at least.  If you have any old patch, I would recommend running across it a few days after a rain when the ground is moist, not soaking wet to see what you might turn up.

I find that wet soil in alkali ground is horrible to detect in, near impossible.
