Quote from the in-game help:

Every possible treasure for Excavation has its own skill level requirement for it to drop, as a result it's difficult to say how much it is helping you. Just keep in mind that the higher your Excavation skill is, the more treasures that can be found. And also keep in mind that each type of Excavation compatible material has its own unique list of treasures. In other words you will find different treasures in Dirt than you would in Gravel. Notes about Excavation:
Excavation drops are completely customizeable So results vary server to server.
