    Gotta love those bees!

    Hi Dave it was so great to see Terry find that chunk of gold. But I know the real gold hunter that has found ten times that much gold and so do you!😀 I would rank you as one of the top Gold and meteorite hunters in the Southwest!

    Gotta love those bees!

    I had a nice welt but nothing like yours!
  4. Nothing like getting a deep target and removing 8-10” of dirt with the target still being deeper. The temperature was around 100 degrees outside and I was starting to sweat. Another 3-4 scrapes at the hole with my pick and the target was now moved and ready for recovery. The nugget was in my scoop and out of the ground, all mine! All of a sudden I felt a whack to the back of my neck. Now the nugget was back in the hole with my scoop and my neck was burning and throbbing. All I could think about is the picture of Bill Southern with all the swelling from the bee sting to the face he posted a while back. A few seconds later two or three buddies of the first bee decided it would be fun to join in with the mayhem. It is a good thing I was down in a wash where where no one could see all the commotion. I also learned the GPZ coil makes a great bee swatter! Once the dust settled and I had the nugget safely back in my truck it turned out to be .79 grams the other nugget from earlier in the day weighed .40 grams.

    12.6 gram gold specimen

    Hi Morlock I found a couple videos on YouTube for specific gravity tests. You have to get creative to complete the tests how you suspend the gold etc. both test show around 3.62 / 3.595g of gold.
  8. Great feeling when you dig up a piece of gold after digging trash all day. The specimen weighs 12.68 grams. Specific gravity test shows around 3.62 grams of gold.

    New Cold Find

    Wow great find it looks fresh!Great fusion crust I would bet there are more pieces in the area.
  11. Hi All, Thanks for the compliments. Sonny
  12. Hi Bill, I was hunting for both gold and meteorites but now that the gold bug has bit heck with meteorites. No just teasing a man can never find enough meteorites.
  13. I can't tell you how close I was to writing this target off as another bullet or surface trash. So many times after I get a strong surface signal and the target moves after the first boot swipe I write it off as trash. This is where I have to thank the guys on the forum ( You have to dig every target). I cannot tell you how excited I was when I noticed the glimpse of gold sticking out of the scoop of dirt! 22.6 gram specimen.
