GB INFORMAL OUTING in AZO's: Metal Detecting & Gold Prospecting Forum Posted October 5, 2015 · Report reply A big THANK YOU to Mike Furness for hosting the informal Gold Basin outing. We didn't have a large turnout, but we had a great time. Good food, (SUPER CHILI MIKE!) and good company in a beautiful area. The weather cooperated by turning cool Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Walt was the big winner of the gold finding tournament with first place in all three divisions - first nugget, largest nugget and most nuggets. Discussions with the professionals, Mike and Walt, provided us with an opportunity to pick up some valuable prospecting and detecting tips. Thanks again Mike.
