black gold

Recommended Posts

I struck oil!!!!!Went detecting today to the Jumping Toad Patch in the Yuma Mountains. I think I found one Ped Leg Smith fabled black coated gold nuggets . It almost fooled me till I scratched it on my zipper to reveal unmistakable gold. Total for today was 5 gold detected and many smaller ones specked by eye for 1.61 grams.

BD,

I think I read somewhere that the black coating on Peg Leg's gold was manganese, is that what the coating is???

Good findings!
