First Gold in a month or so....

Recommended Posts

With Covid and isolation the honey do list all of a sudden grew...form painting my daughters room to replacing the flooring, replacing hot water heater, to need to paint my house, replace composite roofing and so on. I did take a brief time out and dusted off my ML 4500 and hit some old patches with the intention of slowing my swing that a snail could beat me in a race. I cranked the detector on , backpack on, and started working a dirt road near a seasonal stream I worked before and found some nice pieces..I got a nice soft deep sound almost could be mistaken as ground noise form the iron minerals. I took the pick and scrapped off about half and inch and noticed this was solid packed clay, after about 4 -5 inches..I plucked this little .80 gram piece.

Very nice !!   :cowboypistol:

When you know there's gold in the dirt, 'slowing down' takes on a whole new meaning.

Congrats !!  :thumbsupanim
