    Diligent Geologist: Does it find treasure when no deposit is found?

    When you search with Diligent Geo for a particular deposit there are 3 results that can happen:
    1. It finds the deposit and it is 50% larger
    2. It finds the deposit and it's NOT 50% larger
    3. There are no deposits available

    There's also a chance to find 2 "great treasures".

    Under which of the 3 results above can you find the treasures?
    Any 3 of them (where the treasures are independent of finding or not finding a deposit)
    OR only 1 and 2 in which you find a deposit?
    OR only 1 in which you find a larger deposit?

    His bonus does not work at all with stone or copper and you will not get any treasure if there are no deposits available to be found.

    But he always gives 50% larger deposits with every other deposit type (marble, iron, coal, etc..). As for the treasure, each deposit type has a difference chance to get treasure:

    marble 25%
    iron 35%
    coal 50%
    gold 50%

    copper and stone are 0%

    So the chance to get treasure is the SAME as the chance to get a larger deposit?

    If this is true, searching continuously for Marble gives the most chances to get treasure over time.

    Searching Marble every 3 hours for a week is 56 deposits with a 25% chances to get treasure.
    14 on average.
    Searching Iron every 6 hours for a week is 28 deposits with a 35% chance to get treasure.
    9.8 on average.
    Searching Coal/Gold every 24 hours for a week is 7 deposits with a 50% chance to get treasure.
    3.5 on average.
    Searching for Titanium/Saltpeter/Granite every 48 hours for a week is 3.5 deposits with a 75% chance to get treasure.
    2.62 on average.

    I believe you always get the bigger deposit, regardless if you get the treasure or not (except stone and copper). And yes, marble is the most benefit per time.

    Has anyone noticed we aren't getting as many battle buffs as we originally did with these? I started keeping screenshots of what I am getting and will keep them for a week and post here but for weeks I almost never received any of the large cats or weak point. When I do get a battlebuff is it usually choc arrows.

    This is what I had been getting back in September from these and although just covered 2 days was typically of what I was getting all the time.

    and this is what I am getting now. And I notice just because I said I wasn't receiving any weak point now I got a couple - still no large cats or ranged support though and a lot less battle buffs overall
