Nugget Found at Gold Basin Today

Recommended Posts

Got out to Gold Basin a little late today, started hunting at noon. But ended up getting a 5 gram nugget, and a 45 gram meteorite. Found it in a creek bed, a couple inches down, wedged between some bedrock crevices. Just maybe 50 feet down, I dug down to bedrock with a good signal, only to find a 410 casing, thinking this sounded like the same thing I was not to excited, until I saw a little gleam of Gold !!! Also found an old tobacco tin with a mining claim still in it, to afraid to take it out, it looks like it will just shred to pieces.

Dave.

P.S. I posted a youtube video on it also here...http://youtu.be/nVkzzL4dhm8

The gold and the 'rite are great, but that tin with the gold claim, that's history! Sounds like a great day.

Dave,

Great job and did you see what Jason is selling? He showed me more basin nuggets than I've ever seen in one place.

I don't know if you guys need each other but I sure need one of you.

Jason, how many space rocks did you find while getting all that gold?
