The Nokta AU Gold Finder Finally Scores!

Recommended Posts

Hey folks, it's been a few months since I last posted after buying my new detector. I'm on vacation now and I finally got a chance to hit an old hydraulic sluicing area up in the Sierras about 30 miles from my house. This area has been hit hard over the years, I'm sure, but there is still gold to be found!

The nugget hasn't seen too much river wear, so it probably didn't travel too far from the source. It weighs about a gram, and it's the first gold nugget I've found in about 10 years. That's the last time I had a gold detector.

Interesting story...About 16 years ago I asked the good Lord to help me find a nugget to make a pendant for my wife for our anniversary, and he gave me one. But dummy me lost it a few years later, and I've felt bad ever since. So I went out this morning and prayed the Lord to give me a replacement nugget for my wife, and he came through again! haha Tomorrow we'll find a jeweler and have a bail soldered onto it.

My settings were Disc 2 Deep, Boost on, disc filter = 0, isat/mask = 1, sensitivity = 6
