Those coins looks great so maybe that soil drains well - I would go back and put up with the hot rocks.

Thanks BigTony (and everyone else)

the site is not only elevated compared to others in the area/on that road but the soil is sandy which allows for it (the site) to drain extremely fast/well -- that's why I chose this spot on that day because it had been raining for a good week off/on here in Michigan and many (and I mean many) fields/etc. are flooded/saturated making it impossible to hunt unless you like "mud feet" (lbs and lbs of mud caked on your boots (and detector, shovel, etc) which in turn gets all over the inside of your truck = NO thanks! lol

But the "hotrocks" weren't the biggest problem on this site Tony

the worst is/was the EMI due to those huge powerline towers (but then) when you add in the hotrocks with the EMI from those towers PLUS the machine gun iron infestation of the site itself = it all adds up to an extremely challenging site to hunt (especially with any machine that has a large/r coil attached)

which is why I want to go back with a higher frequency machine and smaller coil to sift it another time or 2 before they plant crops in the field.
