Hi all,

thanks for the comments.

Bill- I've been taking care of business around home. Wife's health keeps me on a short rein, didn't ride my m/c but a couple of miles in the last year or so. Got out w/ my Minelab once, so the nuggies will have to remain waiting a little longer for me.

Rimshot- thanks for the comment. The gold is most unusual for sure, thanks to Ma Nature.

Garimpo- as soon as I dug that nugget up, I recognized the dog resemblance, as I know she would much rather be with me than waiting at home. Maybe I will bring her along next year. I think Reno Chris showed up about the time I found some of those nuggets, he thought they were kinda cool too...

Don. Really nice gold. Bet you miss those good times. This is a great thread and like seeing what other odd nuggets other members have found. Keep them coming.

Don,

Nice gold! I do remember those early Minelab big green searchcoils.

I have a photo somewhere of Chuck from Texas swinging his big trashcan coil when he was 80 or so...

Hi Chuck,

Happy Birthday! It is good to hear from you!

I think that is the picture I was thinking about.

Good memories out there on the RP placers, with you, Gracey, Havasu Bill, Little Bill,

Smokey, and a bunch more...

This odd looking slender nugget reminds me of a golden bone, sort of. I do not believe it is wire gold. I've seen a few similar slender nuggets found in a nearby area of the San Bernardino Mountains. GB2 sniffed it out despite damp ground.
