Why would an underground conductor experience a voltage drop?

I don't think the effect would even be the same order of magnitude as the intrinsic resistance of the wire. The metal external to the wire might change the shape of the magnetic field, but would not have much effect on the magnitude. You're welcome to try to calculate it though.
Oh I see. I should try calculate that. Thanks for kind answers. Learned a lot!
