    Lost ring search

    I have a question for AT Pro users. I am going on a specific search for a wedding band. It has been lost for a little over a year. 2 challenges; most likely run over by a lawnmower and also the site is heavily littered with all kinds of metal. Brass, iron, aluminum and cast metal. No way to discriminate here is there? Dig it all?

    I'd recommend you grid the area using stakes and twine and slowly search every square foot. Take your time and really analyze every signal. What I run into when looking for a ring is the person that lost it has a general idea of where they think it is, but they are usually wrong about the exact location. Yes, you will be digging a lot of signals but keep in mind, the ring won't be very deep, hopefully around 1 to 2 inches.

    Be sure to ask what it's made of. That will help you to narrow down what you should be listening for. Also it would be best to use NO discrimination.

    Good luck if its a lady's wedding band it will probably be low VDI I 2nd the NO discrimination advice. Probably going to be in the 40-45 range though.

    I'd start by digging everything 40-58 . Generally rings will hit a narrow vdi whereas junk will bounce more up and down the meter. Of course if theres junk really close or under the ring or the ring is on its side (or cut open) it could skew the numbers any which way even into the iron range.

    All my gold finds came in with a solid or tight target ID number only varying by a digit at the most.

    What TBuckets said.
    Dig gold numbers first, maybe you'll get lucky.
    If not, expand the range of numbers to dig,maybe 30 to 70 and work your way to no discrim if you have to.

    If it's old, I'll dig it, dive on it, detect it or sometimes when I get lucky just bend over and pick it up.

    IMHO:

    You need to grid the entire area with flags (Lowe's flags package around $10 dollars) marking each area. You are using the AT Pro so start digging signals +/- 45
    to 60 first, but be aware I've found gold rings above (69) and below (38) these numbers. I believe the item will be no deeper than 2 inches, so think and dig shallow. Also, Loco-Digger had it right...the ring will have a "roundness and solidness" to it and the number will lock on. You will know what we mean when you find it.
    Lastly, most of the recoveries I've made were NOT where they said it was lost, so keep that in mind.

    Good Luck and let us know of your outcome!

A sunkist whole can locked on just like one of the rings! I know that I will know when I come across it, I just don't want to miss it .. and so I dig. No luck this time!

    Keep at it, if its there you will find it!
    Just don't dig the deep stuff yet! I believe the item will be 1" -2"max, unless they have move some dirt around!

    Good Luck...

    Back off on the sensitivity till you only heart a ring about that size 1 inch . Swing BOTH ways flat on the ground before you move a step
    Good luck keep us posted.
