Default why not use damane for metal?

It seems to me unlikely that Semirhage would go to all the trouble of exhorting merchants when she or one of the Seanchan damane could easily do the job. I remember reading somewhere in TGH that Damane gifted with earth are used to pinpoint metal. Or if Semi could get in and kill the entire Imperial Family, surely she doesnt need to resort to exhortion to get metal? Especially if it was to get adam metal, wouldn't she want to be a little more circumspect?

Unless she really was manipulating Suroth's plan from behind the scenes, even though she seemed not to care whether Suroth gained the Crystal Throne..?
