Buried Car/Time Capsule located with EMI | Houston, TX

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems (GPRS) of the Houston, TX office was called by The City of Oak Ridge North to locate a buried car. The city buried the car 30 years ago as a time capsule with personal items from the community inside. Mitch Halquist and Nate Loyola, technicians on site, used EMI (Electromagnetic Induction) to locate and mark out the potential burial location. In the photo above, the EMI data shows the red/yellow area to be a highly conductivity area which would suggest a large metal object. While still on site, the city began to excavate the suspected area and after about 6’ of earth had been removed, the doorframe of the “time capsule” was exposed. This buried treasure was found!

GPRS of Houston, TX office covers Humble, Spring, Tomball, The Woodlands, Cypress, Katy, Missouri City, Pearland, League City and Pasadena, TX.
