My first nugget


Recommended Posts

Way to go! Not to ask for any secrets spots, but where abouts did you find it? I remember the feeling of getting my first nugget at the Red Chispa Claim up near Ridgecrest, and it stll makes me want to get out there and find some more.

Way to go! The Red Chispa has shown a lot of people their first nugget. A couple weeks ago I gave a guy a quick lesson on the Gold Bug Pro and within 30 minutes he walked back over to show me 2 small nuggets he found... said I should have charged more for the free lesson. lol

Hope to see you out there or at a PCSC meeting sometime.

Thanks everyone. I was using my ATGold with a 4.5" coil. It was in cemented gravel in the wall of a hole that was already started. The wife still needs to find one with her Gold Bug Pro. We joined the PCSC a few weeks ago and will try to attend the meeting on the 15th. We will try & go back out next week end again.

We out yesterday and found 5 more. The largest is .254grams. All five total is .494grams. I'll post a few pictures later. :-)

 

Sweet!

Glad your finding more. That will "tune" your ears at hearing them.

Congrats.
