Christmas Gold

Recommended Posts

On Christmas Day at Jackass Flats, I was out trying out some track settings on a drone debating whether to go detecting, run around on the Can Am, explore, or just do some photography. I went out on Christmas Eve and found a few dinks so I wasn’t in a big hurry to get out detecting on Christmas Day. That was decided when I ran into ArticDave and James heading out on Patches to check out some new areas, so we hitched up and off we went. I took the Monster for a walk up one wash while Dave and James hit some others.  Within 15 minutes of heading up the wash, the first target the Monster sniffed out was the coolest shaped nuggets I’ve ever found in AZ. The rest came after moving some overburden and hitting other exposed bedrock over a couple of hours. It was a great time out with Dave and James on Christmas Day. Looking forward to heading out again with those two fine fellas.

Thanks Tom!! Wish there was a great story on the shirt. I had it covering my camera case but the brush was so thick driving it got snagged on something and was pulled out of the Can Am. I'll keep an eye out for your gear; so I can see where you have been.

The gold gods demand sacrifice:worship:

I heard Mike mumble something about never taking his shiny new Can Am down that kind of trail before...that's what happens when you follow ArcticDave :evil1:

It was good fun. I'm sure we'll find it next trip up there.

It was about 2.8 Adam Can't recall but the whole lot was just under 5 grams. All Monster finds with the 6" coil

Thanks MN!! I had flipped it over and was joking with James and Dave calling it the "Testicle Nugget" but to keep it PG13 I flipped up calling it the Cactus Nugget
