    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?
