What The GB2 MISSED!


Recommended Posts

Yo Everyone...As I planned yesterday after finding that cute little DWT nugget in a hidden tailing pile area, I went back out today with my repaired Nuggetfinder 14" E Mono to see if there might be something deeper...HOLY FREAKIN' COW, WAS THERE!!!!....The gnose gnats were horrible, but my second target turned out to be this quarter ozt. beauty...It was down about 10 inches and I know that the day before I scrubbed the area good with the GB2 & " coil...My scuff marks were easy to see... :icon_mrgreen: ... So after takin' a bunch of phone camera pix, I was alreay ready to head out of that gnat infested wash....As I walked back to my 4-wheeler, I saw another coarse tailing pile that I had really massaged with the GB2 the day before...As I scrubbed the 14" Nuggetfinder (on my ol' Baboo SD2100, of course) I got a sound I was sure had to be a spike or something similar...One big whack and pull with my pick and I saw the Nugget pop out and roll down the face of the pile...I was, and still am, boggled...Almost one full ounce (.89 Ozt) and, as you can see, a real beauty with awesome character... Hope you'll all forgive all the photos, but, to celebrate getting my Nuggetbone honed down to a fine point, I took a buttload o' pix...Total of 1.13 Ozt....Not a bad hour of snortin' gnats & gigglin'... :woohoo: ... Cheers, Your dancin' Unc in the Dubyah

Ron: That potato chip looking coil of yours can really sniff them out! A GB2 teamed with a 14" Mono on my older model GP Extreme get me good results -- but I ain't got nuthin lookin that good. Way to gooooooo! I hope you giggle all the way to the bank.
