Congrats Adam - that looks like a great place for detecting and dry washing this summer - or at least when things dry out. Maybe an article later for the ICMJ or a video for you tube or both.

Nuggets can be born smooth, but if you look at the surface closely with a jewelers loupe, you can tell the polished surface of the water worn nugget from the etched surface of the naturally round nugget that was just formed that way.

On Brownnugget's "molded" gold - yep, it can happen that way. I have a spot that gives sparkly shiny gold as its formed against the smooth sides if individual quartz crystals. We've all heard of the old saw that "all that glitters isn't gold" - well this stuff is the exception. Its gold and it sparkles like glitter. The quartz veins here are like gobs of little individual quartz crystals pressed together rather than the usual waxy massive quartz veins.
