This cap location has had people digging here for sure, I can see three different excavations now. The first excavation point is very deep. Another was made in the middle of the approach and a third was started in the location that the GPS seems to zero out at. The survey stake has been moved twice now. It was moved from the first location on the NW side of the approach all the way to the SE side and now has been pulled right out.
I added another excavation but made sure to fill it back in, I went down 1/2 meter and dug a trench from SE to NW that was about 2/3 meter long. At 1/2 meter I was just making contact with the orginal black soil horizon, what was ground level before last years work. My latest trench was based on careful measurement but no new information. I actually stopped work when I noticed a nearby power pole that was placed in 1999. The pole is tagged and has a "Danger" - High Voltage sign displayed.
The deepest excavation is well within the 3 meters referred to on the Danger sign. I actually stopped my new trench when I read the Danger sign as I was much closer to the pole than ten feet. I am not going to look for this cap again, I do not think that it can be safely excavated after reading that "Danger" sign.
