Metal Detectors

Metal Detectors Cannot Distinguish Between Iron Metal and the Iron-Nickel Metal of an Iron Meteorite

if I’m wrong on this one I’d appreciate be corrected by someone who knows more about metal detectors than I do. Metal detectors may be able to distinguish between U.S. nickel and penny coins, but they can’t tell if iron metal contains enough nickel metal to be a meteorite. Iron meteorites are alloys of of iron and nickel that containing 4-30% nickel.
