Ah, in Europe the climate is almost soft, but not in Russia Sad but sometimes the Cold is happened. So, what the device do you use, for the digging the frozen ground? I don't mean shovel, but something like rock hammer.

Ive read where they use a circle blade cutter on a cordless (18Volt Dewalt) drill but you have to be able to pin-point the target or you may damage the find. You can also mark the target with a nail and a bright orange piece of cloth on it,  then dig it up in the spring when the ground is soft. Just some ideas on frozen ground, i use the winter for research, read treasure magazines(Western&Eastern Treasure)and drink beer waiting for spring. Good Luck....DW

TNT is always an option, hehehe  Shocked
When the ground is frozen at most hunting sites in the Seattle area, I go to the places where there is sand.
Because sand usually drains really well, even if surrounding areas are frozen, the sand is usually easy to dig.
Unfortunately for me, there aren't many places with sand in the Seattle area.

Hello guys,

Have a look at this shovel.  

You are not allowed to view links.

Our hobby, forces us, all year round, to dig in extremely varied grounds: a soft or hard ground, a heavy and sticky ground, a clayey soil, sandy or stony soils, a dry or soggy ground, and even frozen grounds.
Well, in all circumstances, I found this shovel a redoubtable tool.
Its narrow width and its sharp edge mean that it penetrates effortlessly, and the fact that the top of the blade is slightly narrower than the leading edge, eliminates the friction on each side during penetration and therefore a wasted effort, especially in clayey soils.
The cut of the leading edge into two sharp points makes the penetration easier than with a straight edge, and no problems with recalcitrant roots, they are cut without a problem, especially as the soles protections allow a more effective thrust.

Its size and its weight are quite reasonable, and I have no problem to take it for prospecting. Concerning maintenance, let's forget it, as it is made of stainless steel.
So, all meant that, as I am rather lazy, this tool is a dream, and for my use , I find it has many more qualities than those put in evidence by the manufacturer.

Oh yes, I forgot to speak about its strength, indeed I do not know, I will speak of it the day it will be broken; but, given what I have already inflicted to that poor shovel, I think the case is not for tomorrow.

Just a thought.

Maybe you could just purchase a Sod Spade and Cut it the suite?

I have short shovel for digging, but the soil is sometimes very different, and weather too.

This begs the question. Is it worth it?

From an outsider perspective, if the ground is too hard to dig then any items dropped won't sink into the ground at all. Even burying a cache may be too difficult for most people. During the warm season (which I assume is very short), do you find much?

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.
