Relic Hunting In Karelia

Nights of Coins & Relics

While searching in All Metal mode for the sake of the maximum detecting depth, I had no choice but to dig up all the modern junk - pieces and small wads of aluminum wire, brass casings, aluminum bottle caps, etc. That slowed me a big deal because I had to get rid of all shallow targets in order to get to the deeper cultural layers. The ratio Junk-to-Coin was 5 to 1.
