    10-20 meters That's roughly 33 feet down minimum and 66 feet max. I hate to rain on your parade but I don't know of any detector with that kind of capability in lieu of your target. Maybe a mag or 1 meter loop would detect an army tank at those depths, but I doubt a metal barrel/drum. Better talk to a dowser...and make sure they have a big backhoe

    thanks darren for the insight... ive tried dowsing .. its fun, the thing moves ... but I didn't get anything. anyways, maybe somebody can help find a good plan for do-it-yourself metal detector that can detect metal drum about 10ft. or so.. i can't afford buying one...

    thanks

    If you are only wanting to go 10 foot or so a 2 box would probably do the job. Fisher makes a very good 2 box machine..

    Hi Teburshock:

    What is your location? I have a magnetometer and gradiometer which might work if the object
    is ferrous (iron bearing). I am in Florida.

    Also you could get with a survey company and see if you could use one of their fluxgate magnetometer
    probes. They use these to find utilities, wells and property markers that are underground. It might have enough range to locate it.

    Re: deep seeking detector 2

    10 foot shouldn't be as much of a problem, Teburshock. I have a inexpensive (about $120) deep seeking pi unit you can get the plans for. Go to http://forum.treasurenet.com/index.p...ic,4718.0.html and scroll down to the pictures to see one and then the plans are a couple of posts after the pics. Two boxes are good, but they are tricky and can give false signals if they aren't balanced properly. I have one made by Discovery. PI units are much more reliable. The one I have will look past the smaller items and only detect large items. Good luck.

    thanks guys for your reply.

    Dinkydick thanks for the offer but I'm in philippines.
    Darren I'll see if i can buy the parts for that projects. making and assembling electronic project is is not a problem, usually we have problems in availability of the parts. and also $120 is almost 2 months wage for me . anyways thank you for all your help.

    I'll try first the one from geothec 2 box project. This will be my first treasure hunting. I'll let y'all know what will happen.

    I have a first generation Gemini, as you know, that's an excellent/national brand of a "two box detector"!
    It has to be "fired up" and adjusted!
    I haven't used it for years!
    But! It's still in excellent shape.
    ? ? ? If it works,? ? ?I'll be glad to send it to you!? ?
    You pay JUST! for the shipping !
    ? ? Of Course!?
    And! After you find and open up the treasure......
    I'd appericate, if You can send me a sample or two!
    ? ? I'll pay for the shipping!?

    Very generous of you, cptbil I noticed "Duke" at the bottom of your post. Did you find a partner? How's it going so far this past season?

    Re: deep seeking detector 2

    cptbil thanks for the offer! yeah why not, ill pay for the shipping. maybe we can arrange how to ship the MD.

    My story how I got into treasure hunting; a friend of mine came to me asking if i could help him sell his platinum bar. so i helped him, and I found out that it is very hard to sell that kind of an item. it's much easier to sell drugs than a platinum bar . but anyways during the time when i was looking for a buyer my best friend said to me that he knows a treasure site, a lots of them.

    the treasure site: it is on a private land, an old man told the owner of that land, that the father of the old man was killed on his land during the WWII, and the Japanese buried some treasure on that land. During the war the old man's father was POW, and they were force to make a tunnel about ten meter deep near the river and the Japanese blew up the tunnel with POW and treasure inside. the old man described the location. And of course, at first they were skeptical. so my friend went there, by the way the owner of the land is my best friends uncle. they found they location, they found the mouth of the tunnell but it was covered with a big rock. so they dig a hole about 2 meters from the mouth of the tunell and when the hole got leveled with the mouth of the tunne, they found that the soil was wet and when they step on it their feet got burn. so they stop digging. then they dig again ten meters ahead and now they use dowser rod. they found just stones six meter under. tomorrow I'll attach the sketch of the area so it won't be a confusing story.

    I know I need a good detector for this project. I'm not asking for a financing here. even though i don't have much money to buy a metal detector. thank you all for your offer and suggestions. if ever i find some treasure on this I'll post the picture.
    by the way they say the site contains 2 barrel of gold bars. the size of that barrel 2ft in diameter 3 ft in height. you estimate how many 6x3x2 inch gold bars in there
    if you're skeptic, don't flame me, just ask question... ok?

    Re: deep seeking detector 2

    cptbil, I'm willing to pay the shipping, and also I'm willing to give you a sample or two. even if I have to pay for the shipping.

    Darren, the MD that made looks like the MAXI-PULSE 5000, can its reach the deep of 6 to 15ft? how deep will it reach?

    Dinkydick how deep will the a magnetometer and gradiometer can reach? base in your experience.

    Re: deep seeking detector 2

    First of all, be careful of the 30ft claims some of the mfg's advertise. I for one don't believe those claims.

    To be honest, I don't know if my detector will go 6-15ft since I've never dug that deep for any target nor have I air-tested it at those depths. For a barrel? Yes, probably 6ft. Can't say for 15ft. I'll see if I can pull it out this weekend for an air test and see if I can get some measurable results.

    Teburshock:
    What part of the Philippines were you from and your project? What you need I think is a japanese sign reader. Have you not notice any signs in your site? We have spent millions of pesos for MDs but these gadgets will only mislead you because most treasure sites of the **** have many decoys to confuse and lost you to the right area. We even used satellite locator and scanners but to no use. You might just experience digging a 30 foot hole and find an object only as big as your wrist.
