    Not sure such a machine exists. Our dowsers here claim to find things by looking at a photo taken from space, so they may be your best bet.
    RustyGold and Peyton Manning like this.


    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    Welcome to TreasureNet. That would take a very specialized machine. Your average metal detector goes nowhere near that deep.

    GPR is the way to go, unfortunately most require pulling or pushing a cart or sled across the ground which will be a problem in jungle conditions. There are a few newer GPR units that can be carried. There is even one that you can strap to your ankle and walk with a hand held unit.

    Depending on the size and type of target, an airborne magnetometer might be what you'll need.

    What in the world makes you think something is buried 30 meters down in the jungle? How would you even go about doing it? Sounds like some fantasy treasure legend to me.

    Shokoy, first welcome to Tnet! 30' is way in excess of what any metal detector will do, no news there. Being in a jungle setting makes things even more difficult.
    Dowsing right here on our Earth might not be that crazy of a thing to try especially as a person does not even have to purchase them as you can just make a set
    on your own. Dowsing Rods are simply bent metal so that might include coat hangers being cut and reshaped (you need to confirm this thought on the wire Diameter).
    Just read up on it so you understand how to prepare your mind before testing out your rods. Best of Success............63bkpkr

    Hi Shokoy,
    I have no experience with them, but I've seen a few "box" type detectors online that claim to go down 20 feet. One is the White's 808 Cache Relic Hunter, another is the Fisher Gemini 3. A more expensive option might be a Pulse Star II Pro which is a 1-meter or 2-meter square coil, held by one or two people while walking, but the jungle overgrowth gives reason for a pause. If you're just starting out, consider something used on eBay. Good luck on your adventure!

    This is the brand I recommend, and as a bonus you can get them at your local Walmart.

    Sure, a two box will go down 20 feet, maybe more, but, only on a huge target.......trash can sized and larger.

    Sure, give it a try, but, how in the world are you going to make a recovery from 30 feet down in a jungle? Sounds like an expensive quest, especially since you aren't going to be sure what it is until you recover it.
