    Natural Limestone (Fla)

    I have a Fisher F4 and have found a very strong signal (90-100) above a large limestone slab. Could this be natural occurring with limestone? My Pinpointer also shows a broad area (square meter) of strong signal on top of the limestone formation. I'm new at this and before I dig any more, I want to know if Limestone can give off this kind of reading. Thanks...

    Thanks for responding. At first, I thought it was an old septic tank cover until I got a better look at it. I uncovered a two foot section and its clearly a natural limestone formation.

    It's probably just some pirate treasure.

    Seriously, check the bottom of your coil to see if there is a silver dime stuck to it.

    Naw, just a gold coin. Must be something else causing the high readings.

    I'd say that reading would be unusual for limestone; I'd be tempted to check it further.

    my question is will a detector read thru 1 - 2 foot of limestone ? i know it will read rebar in concrete .
    if it can read thru limestone then i wouldl say flip it or bust it . of course after you check for any hole that may hold a nail or drill bit or even a bullet ?

    If it was me I'd have to check it... If you scan further on limestone and get no reading, but do in one spot, it's got to be something, right?

    If it was me I'd have to check it... If you scan further away on limestone and get no reading, but do in one spot, it's got to be something, right? Could it be a cache? Won't know without getting to it. I've dug more trash than treasure, but at least it answers the question: "What is it?"

    That answers your question.

    Do you know what "tabby" concrete is? It is a very old 100+ years way of making concrete. It has large rocks in it. Could what your looking at be "tabby"? It could have rebar in it. Don't stop until you figure this out one way or another. Get a big electric hammer drill and see what is inside it. Some of the drills will also accept a chisel blade for busting concrete/limestone. I have one.
    You can lead a man to treasure but you can't make him dig.
