Digging and detecting


Recommended Posts

Welp............went out today with Dad/Dave/James. Went into a couple of spots we have both found nuggets in.

Dad and I dug up 4 buckets of dirt and put them in the Yoto and Dave was down lower drywashing.

We met up around 10 and went out detecting.
BLAH!!!!...............No nuggets and 4 buckets had some fly poop in them. Welp Least I know where NOT to go drywashing :_
It was still great to get out and hunt with buddies.

Heres a vid of my Trommel running the dirt tonight.

Hey at least it was golden fly poo. Plus time out with pop and friends. Can't beat that.

Glad you guys were able to make it out today.  It's getting warm.....    :Just_Cuz_06:

Looks like some chunky fly poop.  Maybe a few more buckets....  up, down, left or right could have been the motherlode.

Oh and nice trommel too.


I built it about 3 yrs ago.

Used in line skates for the barrel rollers, Go Kart sprocket for the ring gear, Old windshield wiper moter from some car to turn it.  I did splurge on the matt for the sluice. It is Gold Hog. The stuff is really good and catches minute gold. :) The rest of the stuff I had laying around in the junk yard to put it together.  Cost bout 100 bucks total.

Its a great small set up for sampling stuff.
