The Elf gets some gold

Recommended Posts

Dad and I met up with Luke and Dean today. Luke was generous enough to take us to a spot that he had gotten gold out of before.

We detected all morning and found various rusty treasures. I was in a wash that had been drywashed extensively from the 30s I would say. As I got to the top of the wash. I bumped into Dean and he was going down to another area. After parting ways, I detected up the wash some more and decided to head back to the truck. There was a little trib that led up the side of the hill about 50 yrds down from where I was....what the heck. Went back to it and about half way up the hill I get a smooth sound. As I dig deeper, it starts to reverse like iron...dang it. more rusty treasures. Well imagine my surprise when I see this nice 3.7 gram nug in the scoop! YES!:yesss: Its been a while since ive gotten anything of size and and I think I owe it to my new Elf detecting hat! Ok maybe the good Lord plopped it there to break my stinky skunk. :) What a great day and a great find.

It was a good thing you didn't have to walk farther back to the truck.   :4chsmu1:

When you got back....

It looked as though your face could barely contain the smile that was trying to erupt !!  :ROFL:

Congrats on a long awaited and well deserved chunk of gold !!

AWESOME   :D

Hey,   Now there's a nice nugget!  Looks to me that I need to get out of the cold Prescott Valley area and venture down there to have a look-see for myself.  You "must" need some help carting all those nuggets out, or at least splitting up to cover more ground to find where they are hiding-out.  Glad to see that you snagged a nice-one.  Gary

NIce, Tom... I recognize that spot and hunted it years ago with my GB2 for little or nothing ... I know it was hit heavy back in the day but it obviously still has something for new technology and skill...Way to go! ... Cheers, Unc
