Muggy Morning Gold

Recommended Posts

Hey all...

I made it out the other day for a quick hunt before the sun burned off the clouds.  I returned to an area I'd been before, and decided to hunt a hillside near "My First Dink Patch".  This area has been hunted by many detectors over the years and it took over an hour before I found my first trash target.  A little bit later, I found a target signal behind the trunk of a little bush.  After some digging and some screwdriver/bedrock action, the target was out.  Another little scrap of rusty metal.  :idunno:  But wait, there's another target in the hole.  :head:  Some more bedrock loosened up and scraped out, and this little guy came to the surface.  A nice .58g specimen.  :yesss:

I was using the 5000 with the 11" mono commander.  Fine gold, gain 9, stab 9, very slow....   I knew the ground would be wet, so the EVO stayed home.  I doubt it was more than three inches deep.  Even when it was in the scoop, it wasn't very loud.

Luke
