Thursday's Finds

Hi All,

(I posted these finds on another forum as well so, no, you are not going crazy if you've already seen them!)

Crownking Steve and I were able to get out and do some nugget hunting on Thursday. As usual, Steve beat the skunk with a nice flat nugget :wubu: I, on the other hand, was not as fortunate on the gold. On the way out of the patch, Steve pointed out an area that he had detected some copper nuggets a few years ago so we decided to give it a go. We both did well on the copper nuggets. Here are a few shots of some of my finds.

These were given a bath in a muriatic acid solution to remove the host rock from around the nuggets. Some of the nuggets detected were free of the host rock.

Even though I got skunked on the gold, it was a great day detecting. Thanks Steve!

Very nice! I've never seen copper nuggets before.
