you cannot drive 300 kilometers with a wheelbarrow, to increase the detection depth you have to increase the power delivered by the transistor which drives the coil, so forget the BC 557 and forget your diagram, if you really want to make a powerful metal detector and acquire a solid knowledge of the subject, then have a look at: https://www.geotech1.com/forums/forum.php

If you search on Google for "metal detector schematic" first 10 returns shows detectors not very complicated, but having performances maybe 10x better than the one you posted.
