How can support services detect and dispose of unclaimed landmines ?

I'm thinking about the PFM's in Afghanistan. Can a chemical fog cause rapid, superficial oxidizing of landmines ? Afterwards, a second part fog reacts with the oxide to produce a photoflourescent layer (?).

    Mostly you use inert mass like a steam rollers and just crush it and set it off, or if it is on the surface you might blow it with a charge, if it is inaccessble they use a special arm scoop. If you have a field you use rocket disperse C4 to blow the whole area and set everything off.

    chemicals would make land useless for growing stuff, and maybe even walking on it. and gases do not go easily underground, where the mines are.
