Hollys first nugget

Recommended Posts

Holly, Lily and I headed out yesterday about Noon for a quick trip to pan some dirt. I took the Sdc2300 with so i could check some spots that I had worked over the last season.  Well....Holly took the detector and started digging targets. Wire.... bullet... wire. Her attitude was still upbeat even though it was just trash. I told her to head for the bedrock and stay shallow. She did just that. She found, dug and recovered a nice little nugget! 

A side note: I was walking about two feet from the truck when I spotted this. Eyeball detecting on the fly. I guess its considered a sunbaker but it was under about 1/4" of water so i dont know if it technically qualifies.

It did. Really deep in some areas that choke up. Some areas are more cleared off and some areas filled in.

You obviously have a very good idea about kids... I remember my parents take my sister and out to a spot that they found and spending great days playing in the water and having a good old time. Unfortunately they never panned gold out... only pirites. But it got me on track to do something more than sit a home. I took all of my finds and stories straight to my parents, i guess to thank them. They are passed away now so it resonants to pass it down..... and maybe she will be better than me some day.

Nobody can go wrong by being a good parent and spending quality time with family makes some good memories! 

Congrats on the gold finding adventure 🥇
