    garrett at pro finding question.

    Hi, I'm hopping someone can help me find what exactly I have found. it's a big chunk of melted metal the size of a tea cup plate, it's heavy. At first lead came to my mind but what's making me question my judgement is the reading I got. I believe is a solid 90 every time I pass it by the metal detector. it was about 10' down the ground, I found some burn coal or sort of ash around it. my guess is someone melt it it and lost it in the ash or just left it for garbage.

    Metal detectors cannot tell what kind of metal you have, they mostly just measure conductivity and large pieces of aluminum or even iron will give you the 90 reading. On a coin sized object 90 may mean silver but that doesn't apply to large objects. Quite likely melted aluminum as digging says. I hope the 10' down is a typo!!

    You can get a test kit off Amazon for a variety of metals - handy for this hobby. I'd agree it's likely melted cans though. I get silver signals on cans often.

    If it's heavy it's not melted aluminum. Got any pics to share?

    that is good to info to know. I don't think is aluminum cause of the weight. lead is my guess. and yes I meant 10" not feet lol
