Nugget Shooter Forums

Recommended Posts

Met up with Boulder dash for a 24 hour hunt. We detected at night for about 6 hours, during a very bright, near full moon. A few nuggets were recovered that night and the following day. After what seemed like miles of hiking equipment in, we dry washed a hillside looking for a source, and we are very, very close to locating it. Time ran out and it was time to get back to priorities.

Heres the take .....Mine on the left and BD`s on the right.  Thats 16 grams on the left and I think BD came out with 10 grams ?

Heres a small area of placering  that I worked on for a while.

Well done as has been said.  I hope you find the source.

You are giving us a lesson in how the old timers did it with the rock stacking.

I love the night hunts.  And if you get tired then you can take a nap under the stars without waking up fried to a crisp!  

Then again, it's pretty obvious neither of you took any naps.  As the others have already said, nice work and thank you for sharing.  It keeps the fire burning.

Some seriously nice bits there, gents..

Adam, when you first came upon this location was it overgrown and 'hidden'..? The hiking in of equipment is telling, so I don't doubt this was originally old timer's workings far enough off any sort of modern day motorized beaten path to have gone un-re-discovered for a good long time.. Your love of "just hiking around" does have its rewards..

And the curiosity question of the day: How was the dry washing take & are you going to post up a pix or two of that here also..? I understand if you're holding them back due to an as-of-yet unpublished article..
