A Metal Detector is a simple low powered magnetic field generator and sensor. It indicates presence of most metals through soil or rock, although degree of reaction depends on amount of metal present. The detector will generally detect a liter or more volume of metal to a depth of approximately a meter, thought it can detect smaller objects at a correspondingly shallower depth.
