Today I seen where they was widening a road and I thought the fill dirt would be full of trash so I detected in it. I didnt find much I guess they sift it. I figured it would be perfect with soft soil and many targets it was clean.

Sam, that is a surprise. They must be getting the dirt from some real old area. I've done them myself but I've only ever found clad. A lot of the cities will make arrangements with contractors doing construction work in the area to take their project tailing for projects the city is working on. One city here has a hospital going up on a remote corner which was all wooded. The contractor took all the dirt it excavated to a site where the city wanted to make a sledding hill in one of the parks. I went over not only the piles of dirt dumped by the tandems, but also the stuff they graded and made the hill out of and came up with about a buck in clad for 10 hours of searching. Nice eye though. Maybe you'll have better luck on the next one. Bones is correct. Look for the excavation of the old roads, sidewalks and do them before they fill. Those can be some real jackpots!!
