Helping a newcomer, and getting gold nuggets

Hey everyone,

  A buddy of mine Leo Aranza called and asked me he has a a 73 year old Japanese friend Mel who has a minelab detector, who  just got it from Doc, and wanted to learn it and find some gold. I took him out to Gold Basin, made sure he was all setup and let him loose. I tell you what, when I am 73 , I hope I can climb hills and still detect like him. Leo is a very good coin/ relic hunter, that been detecting 30 years, and is just starting on gold.

  We all scored something. Leo ended up with over 200 grams of meteorites, Mel the older gentleman ended up getting a nice little meteorite, and a small 2 gram gold nugget. It was great to see someone get a nugget for the first time. I ended up with almost an ounce of nuggets, it was .77 ounces. and as a bonus got a 586 gram meteorite.

Until next time, mucho oro for everyone....
