Isn't this a Gold Forum??,..

Recommended Posts

I could have swore that it had been a Gold Forum (at one time),....ya know where you post pictures of real gold nuggets that you have actually found,....and not you tube crap.  Guess no one likes posting any more, so I'll throw these on just for kicks-n-giggles.  Had to move a few boulders "down-deep" on bedrock to get these.  Gary

Well, unfortunately on my end of the world we are under 3 to 4 feet of snow where we detect, so i guess posting gold pics is out of the question for a while.

Dan, you got that right. "end of the world"

So which end of the world are you talking about? The north pole? Or the south pole?

Seriously... someone from you know where showed me a picture of a car covered in so much snow that all you could see was about the top two feet of the antenna. Everything else was buried. Must have been 5 feet of snow and that wasn't a snowdrift. I wonder how many snow days the kids in school use each winter.

Steve, 

Whichever pole has the most snow right now, thats how we feel.

Up top right behind there, the snow is up to 83 inches according to the last check on Friday. Turned out to be one heck of a snow season. Still coming down in my yard right now adding to the 2 feet i already have. Surprisingly the kids here have only had 1 snow day this year and that was this past Thursday. They have had 4 or 5 late starts though.

I cant wait for the melt so i can get back to finding more gold and relics.

This was my last nugget from last season. I know it isn't recent but figured i would post it again. The cool thing about this nugget is, is i dont find a lot of nuggets like this at this spot. Its usually high grade float consisting of quartz, iron stone and some rhyolite. This is only my 4th solid nugget from here.

I kind of figured that there were some out there who where "just holding back" for "Some" reason not posting their finds???  The nuggets that I posted weighed in at 6.86 grams total;....where three of mid-size nuggets plus the second largest nugget came out of the same pocket together.....such a "brief-Rush".

OK, Yes this is a gold forum and has been for like 20 years now, you post the same question at least once a year :ROFL:Here is some Gold Monster 1000 and GP 3500 gold with a few GPZ 7000 bits included, just more into educating than showing off these days :old: Sorry for the crappy phone photo, but camera in truck and I am too lazy to go get it, most all from 2018 with a few from 2019 so far thrown in..... Many of the actual finds are at my YouTube channel in my YouTube crap :inocent:

Not sure "Who" you are addressing your question to, as there have been 6-pictures posted from individual gold finders responding to my question.  Mine came out of Arizona.

Heres some yella stuff from Montana, bigger nugget is 19.5 grams. Also some specimens that were dug out of a vein in an old timers saddle, where they took the outcropping, but missed the gold just off to the side.

Nice looking Montana nuggets you got there,...where you dredging, sluicing, or what to get them??   I have one here from Arizona that resembles you center-photo'd one, only it only weighs in at 5.78 Grams,.....looks kind of like yours though.  Thanks for responding to my post.  Gary

Thanks Gary, they were detected with a GPX 5000 and 14x9 EVO coil. Nice nugget there, it does resemble mine, they have been squashed and rolled around a little bit.

Now there's some nice looking nuggets also,...I see the quartz mixed in with a couple of your nuggets, but is that ka-lee-che (spelling???) mixed in with the other nuggets???  I have found a couple of nuggets down around Rich Hill (here in Arizona) that had ka-lee-che almost covering them.
