Is aluminum tough for some detectors?
I am a cemetery administrator and I am just breaking into a new area which has been laid out with subsurface markers. The markers are cast aluminum with a number plate on top which is about silver dollar size & thickness. My old Troy Shadow II, basically a Tesoro, goes nuts when I try to locate ..just a few peeps and nothing zeroed on except possibly some mineralized stones.
I don't know if it is my detector out of tune or if aluminum (possibly corroded) is very difficult to detect.. What say you?
BTW: I'm way out of practice with the detector..
