    Calvin, I appreciate your interest in New Orleans, it's vibrant culture and high trash content. We're pretty proud of our trash layer and have been working diligently for many years to improve it where ever possible. Where many places have a few pulltabs here and there I have documented places where pulltabs and bottlecaps nearly outnumbered the rocks in the gravel. It's pretty incredible sometimes. My continuing research is aimed at finding all these areas, and making sure there are no zinc pennies in the ground to complicate things.

    Seriously though.... There is a park near the lake that used to be a boat landing in the 17-1800's and was also one end of a rail line from the lake to the river front. It's been gone for a century and there was even an amusement park there for a long time. I have pulled a few nice finds out of it, but also found what I'm pretty sure is a chunk of old rail in the ground,(still there I'm not digging it out) and probably 10 pounds of trash and I've only covered a small part. The big problem we have here is that most of this city is built over reclaimed swamp land and it was backfilled with trash. Some places like my neighborhood that trash layer can be right under the grass..... It gets a bit frustrating sometimes but I keep at it.

    Also some of this info has been quite useful to me, I now know what kind of detector to use if I ever accidentally lose a truck hood. which from the assortment of car parts that turn up in abandoned lots here I'm guessing is a real possibility......

    With all that history I would keep at it too...I would dig tons of trash, and dispose of it proper, for the tiniest of treasures!

    Where are you cc? Southwest?
    Something like digging Tijuana perhaps. Less rocks.( I mean mineralised rocks) LOL
    My detector goes thru shingles and terracotta plumbing. Lesche, not as easy.
    Some say dig everything. Yea right! How many feet of chicken wire, metal guttering, siding or lenghth of plumbing would they pursue? We do keep at it. And vent a bit more.

    I'm at a fairly remote AZ location. I'm new to detecting so I'm still in my dig everything stage. If I didn't run in all-metal I'd never even hear a peep, lol. A big score for me is a length of chicken wire over one inch long or a salvage-able nail!

    cheers,

    Don't answer that. These guys are maxed on thread knowledge.
    Thanks for most replies. So I'll travel more and go deeper.

    Ray, do you have the layer of little white shells in the ground on that side of the river? Between them and all the oyster shells some spots are just infuriating to dig over here. I feel your pain with the slate shingles and terra cotta man.

    Oh yes. They came from 48 years of Lake P's shell dredging. They'll probably drop 3 inches every 84 years!
    And the lake's comming back now. Should be very nice by spring 2068.

    Here's a little digging tip that might help. In AZ, the desert is not sand as you might think, it is small rocks surrounded by fine dusty soil. It is impossible to dig with a shovel so I use a small 3 tine rake which works great. Might help in the shell area. Frank
