Quick trip yields three small nuggets!

Recommended Posts

I finally made it back to the Big Az the weekend of the 18th! This time we were in prospecting mode for new areas and as usual, we hit it hard and took advantage of the time I was there. We did drop in on one of the Big Bug Mining District claims and that’s where I pulled these three from ‘eddy spots’ where bedrock crosses the wash. These came from places that started with no signal whatsoever, I just felt that gold would stop there when the wash was flowing, so I dug a bit with my pick, then detected again with my 2300 and was rewarded!

Nice job. I recently started doing exactly what you are describing, raking likely looking areas with the blade of my pick. I haven't found anything as nice as your nuggets, but I have pulled a couple tiny pieces that way, and will keep doing it!

Regards, Kyle

Thanks! Yes, I got tired of getting schooled by my buddies as I would go through an area, detect the likely spots, but then they would come behind me and pull gold, many times from those spots! I finally got it through my thick head that maybe the gold is there but I just didn’t look hard enough, LOL. I’ve been working hard to rub the ‘green’ off since I’ve only been nuggetshooting a few years. The SDC made a gigantic difference for me but I’m definitely seeing it’s the detectorIST and the work you put in, more than the machine itself! I can only give the credit to my buddies that have worked hard to teach this Texan how to find gold, and this forum that offers so much information!
