nice 4 gram piece with the gb2


Recommended Posts

Well before the rains thought i would outsmart mother nature. Was doing outstanding drywashing so picked up some painter's plastic to cover the wash for 60 foot. Rain rain and more rain. Left a sort of rain gage and measures out at 3 inches. A lot of my tarping just did not stop all the water. Out of 60 foot i was able to run 120 more buckets till dry material was worked out. Wednesday afternoon at 1 pm hit some old areas and started popping nuggets. First piece was a one gram in the bottom of a minelab dig hole?? I guess there must of been 2 nuggets in the same hole. Was hitting lots of sitting ducks and a few sunbakers. So i had told the wife if i found a big one I'd come home early. Friday morning im in a new area next to the road digging lots of trash. Hit a very loud signal in some very red hard pack. Digging and digging Can't get the target out. I was just about to give up thinking it was just trash,due to my largest find in the wash was half gram. When i finally have it in the scoop it's just a lump of red. Must be steel or a quartz specimen. Rubbing it on the side boom gold rub the other side boom gold. Left everything in the wash and just had to go toothbrush it. 4 grams so packed up and left early. 12.8 grams total not bad for 2 days detecting.

Boulder,

You MUST have a goood wife for you to leave your hole after two days like that! You are lucky to have found her because she sounds better than the gold you find.
