First sunbaker 22.6g AZ Specimen!


Recommended Posts

I can't tell you how close I was to writing this target off as another bullet or surface trash. So many times after I get a strong surface signal and the target moves after the first boot swipe I write it off as trash. This is where I have to thank the guys on the forum ( You have to dig every target). I cannot tell you how excited I was when I noticed the glimpse of gold sticking out of the scoop of dirt! 22.6 gram specimen.

Every time I 'dig' an overload signal, in the back of my mind, I'm hoping for one of those.

Very nice find !!  :thumbsupanim

Congratulations !!

What a beautiful specimen nugget Sonny, I bet you did smile :4chsmu1:Were you hunting gold or meteorites when you found it?

Hi Bill, 

I was hunting for both gold and meteorites but now that the gold bug has bit heck with meteorites. No just teasing a man can never find enough meteorites.

That is a real beauty. I did get out detecting a little bit last Sunday.

1 encrusted rock, large marble size I need to dissolve to see what's inside.

Another that looks like a meteorite. Will grind, polish and inspect.

My biggest and best gold is meteorite gold!
