DDAS, 2006, Afghanistan, excavation
The deminer stated that the two mines that he had found earlier that day had only been 5cm deep, and that he did not expect to find another mine so close to the last one [even though the previous three had been with 2 metres of each other], or so deep; he therefore assumed that the signal was not a mine. He thinks that the mine was deeper than 10cm below the surface. He accepts that he may have exerted too much pressure whilst excavating.
