Out again

Hello everyone. Hope you all are enjoying your sunday. We made it out again today to the spot I found the half ounce speci 2 weeks ago. This time I talked my dad into coming up for a day. My friend Larry FINALLY found his first detector nugget. It weighs in at 2.1 grams and is really solid. I was the next to find one. It weighs in at 4.1 grams. Dad had to get headed home soon since it's a 4 hour drive back to where he lives. So he wanted to give it one more go after we ate a little snack. I pointed out an area I thought would hold a nugget. After an hour or so I heard him yell. He had just found his FIRST minelab nugget. I hurried over to check it out and he was laughing because only a very tiny spec of gold was showing. I cleaned it up and there was a nice sandwich of gold between two quartz slabs. I am really excited for him. It weighs in at 4.8 grams. My boys found alot of cool stuff. My little guy found a VERY RARE 1989 nickel HAHA. He was a little mad when he saw the date. My oldest found some really cool stuff but I still have to get pics. Ok everyone, have a great rest of your weekend. 

I'll post pics when I can. It keeps telling me the upload failed.

Sounds like another great day. I bet your dad was pretty stoked. Can't wait to see the pics.

I'll be heading out next weekend. Hoping for my first PI nugget.

It is really nice to know about the entire family enjoying the day out finding things.  That is as important to the rest of us as your finds.

Keep posting.

Father , good friends and kids, you just can't get any better than that. A fun day with some shine also works for me as I watch the rain/lightning and hail. John

Finally got the pics shrunk down to the size needed to post. Here are the pics from last weekend. In the top one with the coin, mine is on the top left. It's 4.1 grams. Larrys is the top right. It's 2.1 grams. And dad's is on the bottom. It's 4.8 grams. If I was to guess, his has about a gram of gold in it. Thanks everyone,  and hope you all had a great easter.

I DO have a cell phone.. Older model tho.. It makes calls.. It receives calls.. That's it.. I think it's analog.. All I know is I need to put a dime into what looks like a USB port before it'll let me dial out.. Every three months a guy from AT&T drops by to switch coin boxes in the battery base.. Last time he was here he gave me a new shoulder bag to hold the battery and base cos it was ripping out through the bottom..

PS: Oh -- Nice Au, Dan & crew.. :4chsmu1:

Here is my boys finds for that weekend. The 3 buttons have the face of a chinese warrior on them. The buckle is really neat also. Then the nugget on the bottom is Larrys all cleaned up.

Jeez, Dan.  Those are beauties!  Nice work.  And those non-gold finds are sweet as well.  I never run across that stuff.  Wish I did.  Keep 'em coming!
