Sorry for the bad photo my camera on my phone is a little cracked but heres a couple bits of Wyoming gold hoping to add some more nuggets to the collection this year but we will see. The biggest is 1.67oz....

That's incredible gold! The big one sure is beautiful too.

Nicely done, and all the best,

Lanny

My dad was using his new Gold Monster on the same patch and has been skunked several times now...any advice on getting the GM tuned up? He was very successful with his Tesoro, but we can’t seem to dial in the monster yet.

The GM does take a bit of getting used to if you're used to using another VLF. When I bought mine I was alread pretty proficient at finding gold with my GB Pro. It took me at least 6 months to find nuggets with the GM. Maybe I wasn't hunting in areas that had nuggets, or maybe it was because I hadn't gotten familiar enough with the differences between those two machines. But I searched in a new area and dug out 8 nuggets in a day with the GM. Mike's settings and ground balancing recommendations are spot on. Don't sweep too fast; it only confuses the CPU! :head:

Here's one I found recently.  TomH took a nice picture of it.  It's three quarters of a gram to give you an idea of it's size.

Nice looking species Luke.  Looks like it is getting rounded around that quartz from traveling a bit.  Great find Bro.

Staycation last week in celebration of wife's birthday.

Spent the week working around the house some but mainly working on the gold claim and prospecting. While I eliminated my skunk by panning some dirt, the wife cleaned my clock by finding three nuggets in the space of an hour. She melded with her Gold Bug 2 and sniffed these small nuggets from the hillside.

We both have many hours / days working this claim and for her to hit these three so quickly stopped me dead in my tracks. I was asking here to come hear signals I was getting on my GB 2 after that. Some times you just have everything working for you, she did that day.
