I have been working a small tot lot off and on for a while in a small park that has a soccer field in it. Every time I am out there I keep telling myself I need to hunt that field. One Thursday I got up early as usual, and that soccer field was calling to me. As I walked out the door I said I was going to find some gold. My returned answer was a "RIGHT". I took my MXT with the 5.3 coil. I started working the closest corner of the field and it was loaded with heavy deep iron. In fact I was hitting targets that went beyond my 12" depth gauge. I had found a few deep coins (6" to 7"range) and none of my VDI numbers were close to the actual targets. Nothing would lock, jumping around like crazy. I was in some very strange ground. I hit what read as a nickel target and it turned out to be a sterling cross. I'm now into the hunt about 15 minuets and I hit an iffy signal that jumped all over the place. This was in front of the goal post and read 6" deep. After the nickel encounter, I decided to dig it. At 7" in the bottom of the hole I could see the gold. I brought out an 8" long, 14K, 10.5 gram link bracelet. I spent the rest of the hunt digging a lot of trash. In the next couple of months, I found another 3 gold chains. With an MXT in your hands, treasure is only a few inches away.
