    Deep search companies/contractors?

    Newly registered member, and this seemed like best spot to ask for help since I couldnít find anything through Google. We have reason to believe that a significant amount of silver was buried on a now deceased family members property. It is a relatively small area where it is believed to be buried (perhaps 200 ft.≤), and weíve been told that it was buried at least 3 feet deep. Given that a typical personal detector wonít locate anything that deep, can anyone advise me of the type of professional (in the Atlanta area) - or even a specific person or company - that I could pay to help me locate something that deep? We are a little concerned about the risk in an outsider learning where it is, but Iím not sure how to avoid that. Can anyone help? Thank you in advance.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    I sure am. Hoping to find someone that has that tech. From what Iíve seen, that equipment is thousands of dollars and would be a one time use for me. I canít find any place that rents that out.

    How much silver? What kind of container? What makes you think it's at least 3' deep? Most people who bury things, don't dig down that deep. If you think about it, there really isn't any advantage to burying something deep as opposed to shallow. Once something is underground, it's out of sight. Digging deeper just takes longer and makes you more tired!

    If the container is metal, or, the target(s) are big enough, you might be able to use a two box detector to locate it.

    Rent a PI detector and find it yourself if you donít want to spend a fortune on a detector. Grid off areas where you suspect the contents are. A good PI will pick up a soda can at 3ft + Youíd be surprised how deep new detectors can detect larger objects. When I first started detecting, I dug out an old paint can with my AT pro at the beach which was for sure over 2 ft.

    Confidentiality is number one...

    be VERY careful on disclosure of location until you have met with the person in a place of notary and have them and a witness on YOUR SIDE sign a confidentiality agreement and contact for recovery with percentages.

    and even then be very limited on any details in which would point to any potential locations UNTIL said person is ON property and ask questions an dig every signal EVEN IF this person says it is not anything.

    Agree to do search until found and make each day a full one... until found.

    This is and should be your first move... for the less people involved the better.

    Thanks to all. As I mentioned above, I canít find a company that rents out anything other than a typical personal detector like the one I already bought and tried. Garrett Ace 250. Thatís why I asked if there were companies for hire that did this kind of thing. And yes, as I mentioned I am very concerned about privacy and will do all I can to protect myself. The widow of the person that buried it indicated he told her it was around 3 feet deep. Can anyone help me on where I can rent the type of detector I will need, in the Atlanta area?

    No. You are talking about a high dollar metal detector. Nobody rents those, thats why you only see cheap, entry level type machines available. If you think the treasure is likely there, invest in the detector yourself, do your own searching. You can sell the detector when done and recoup the majority of the cost. If you wanted somebody to come in with their equipment and spend their time to search, you can plan giving up a large chunk as the finder fee, or else paying a very hefty per hour rate regardless of finding or not. This also SHOULD involve some detailed legal contracts.

    My thoughts as well to those replies above. Try to recover it yourself first b4 getting someone right away. Like said.. the less who know the better. If you canít rent one I would do exactly what Jason said. Buy yourself a good PI for starters and go at it. Use your Ace 250 first to clean off the top 6-8 inches of targets then try a PI to go deeper.
