This will make it almost impossible for an attacker to use a mine detector or metal detector to locate your mines.

In spite of the current tight money situation, most weapons builders manage to slowly increase the supply of tools and raw materials in their home workshops - yet they fail to expand their technical reference libraries at the same rate.
