Hi Folks, thought a review of past and present finds was in order to fire everyone up. So please post nugget photos her, past and new finds. How many pages of gold can we get? I'll start....

Here's a few I have found. All from drywashing. The one in the second pic was just under a gram.

Glory days! This was from a 20' x 50' patch in an area of hot gray basalt ... A very "non-gold" looking spot... The little flat round nugget was the "indicator" I found first with my GB2 and the rest were found nearby with my old' Baboo SD2100 & NF 14" fibreglass mono coil... I found a total of about 5 ozt. in the patch ... Cheers, Unc

Here's a total of what Dad and I have found.

Just shy of 8 1/2 oz.

My favorite being the pizza nugget on the left at 1.27 oz :)
The old watch chain was a pretty cool find at Quartzsite too.

We're going to keep trying to add to it!

I like to keep them in separate containers as to where I found them and when....its the German in me :)

I like Toms MO. Keep each find separate and labeled when and where you found it. Great idea! :thumbsupanim

Thanks Rim, I actually found two pieces like that. Both of them came from the same wash. Both of them weighed in at just under a gram. Both of them were thin enough that you could bend them and probably roll them up if you tried.
