First GM1000 Nugget -- A Nice One

Recommended Posts

My Texan son-in-law is visiting for the holidays.  So I took him with me for a half-day to some open range in Southern California on a cold, windy, not so sunny day.  I used my 7000 and he used my Gold Monster 1000.  He is not a prospector and had never used one before.  His familiarity with metal detecting is minimal having accompanied me on maybe 3 or 4 day trips over the past 16 years.  On those occasions he used a GB2.  So I figured that after I gave him a 5 minute crash course on the 1000 he could pretty much operate on his own without the need for me to coach.  But I wasn't expecting him to nail this 4 gram beauty, especially after the snow began falling.  Nor was I anticipating my own return home covered with skunk stripes.  I suspect not many nuggets like this surface very often out of the Pecos.

Wouldn't surprise me one bit if that package (the nugget, the detector used, 1st time prospecting and the story as laid out & presented)
ended up being a Minelab Find Of The Month winner.. Isn't typical of me to promote, but this whole thing is pretty exceptional.. Nice find, ^5..! :thumbsupanim
