First 08 Nugget

Yo, All...After coming back from N. CA from my Dad's ending and all, I finally got out for a short time at LSD...Back up to one of my old spots where a few years back I beeped up an ugly little black and gold nugget...The recent rains scoured out some good spots...I'm still not as able to concentrate on beepster as I need to be, but I specked a turn and flat in the bedrock...Scraped it down a foot or so and got a strong signal...Popped up this little 3/4 gram nuggster with some strange dark, non-magnetic rock...Almost looks like obsidien...Just like the smaller bit I found in this spot a few years back...It's good to be back home...Taking a little time to readjust...Thanks to you guys who have sent condolences...Cheers, Yer Unc in the Dubyah

Hi Ron,

Glad to see you're back. Nice find on the nugget too. The black stuff on the nuggie is manganese. I have found many pieces of gold in Yavapai County with it attached. Some of the smaller pieces were completely coated with it and I almost threw them away. Check it out.

Ben
