Stan's Patch Gives One More

Yo, All ... I think only Billy and I know about this patch, at least by this name, but an a old, departed friend turned us on to it and it has produced some very nice nuggets, up to a half ounce for me and I'm not sure what for Billy ... Anyhow, I made a late run today to the LSD and hiked a couple ridges to get in ... Quite a bit of wire and rust bits but the ML4500 seems to ID them pretty well, even with a mono on ... (NF 14 Mono, original fibreglas) ... Low/High... My first not Low/High was this cool little half grammer ... It was down about 6" and made a nice mellow sound, unlike the trash I found before and after ... If it weren't for the fact that big deep nuggets make the Low/High sometimes, I'd quit digging those targets, but, as everyone says, if it beeps dig it and if you don't I guarantee you'll pass over some gold ... Anyhow, heres a couple pix ... I thought I did a short video, but, as usual, operator error prevailed ... Fun day at the LSD! ... Cheers, Yer Unc in the Dubyah

Hey way to go Ron!

It sure is a nice sound when your 99% sure its gold huh?
And, then you dig down past where any trash or lead would be and the

excitment level goes up.

Glad you got it.

Today is Stans birthday. Kind of ironic you posted this. Wish I would have had a chance to meet him.

That's amazing!!!! Maybe I knew that subconsciously or? I do know I hadn't visited any of the patches I hunted with him in years but yesterday I was heading out and made a snap decision to visit this one particular patch...Stan and I traded a couple of patches both in the LSD area and the Rich Hill area ... His raking is still somewhat visible... In fact, the little nugget I found was right at the base of one of his raked areas.... Cheers, Unc
