Testing methods i cant find an accurate method for get depth, i know asking with questions is the easy way but have to be another way; i meaning over pictures not walking the site.

Im testing this:
Put a wire over the center of target, have to be made it with one metal contained in the target, so, start reading the serie of target (in the center) then move, always over the wire, move pendulum over the wire getting away from center until feel a light blockage or barrier; then measure distance from center to blockage. Looks its aproximate to depth but its fall short; maybe the blockage mean other thing, like edge of a field??

This is my method,,,All minerals have what is referred to as a "HALO" or cone of energy that comes to the surface at a 45 degree angle from the target. To determine the depth of a target--------

1. Stand over your target with the L-rods crossed.
2. Slowly walk away from the target and the rods will open and point ahead.
3. Inch along until the rods form an inverted V with the tips about 1 !/2 inches apart and mark the spot.
4. Measure the distance back to your target. That's how deep the target is.
5. If you measured 1 foot the target is less than 1 foot deep.

Easy, piece of cake.
