Had an awesome afternoon today out swinging the 4500 in the Central Arizona gold fields. My first ever over an ounce day and single nugget weight record breaker!

Total weight.

 

 

A 1.5 ounce day :) !!! Happy Valentines Day to me :D .

 

I didn't get a pic of the 1 gram nug in the field. It was the first one found. All three were found in a 20' run using the 14x9" Evo.

Absolutely awesome day of detecting!!! :lol: I haven't seen pieces that large come out of that country in a really long time. It's nice to know that a few are still lurking. Congratulations again on cracking the 1+ oz day, I can't wait to see those in person!

"Hey Dean",

Now that you have scored those two nice slug-nuggets, "maybe" you can now afford to get some gloves that cover your fingers and finger tips. :lol:

I usually wear out the finger tips on my left-hand glove from digging. But I always cover my complete hands with gloves, :ph34r: as I have been stung by a scorpion once, (on my pinky finger) and have had "way-to-many" close calls with scorpions, centipedes, spiders of all types, and even a black widow spider (or two). The bark scorpion in Arizona is pretty nasty.

I pretty-much grew up on a ranch down in Skull Valley, and when I was younger took sheer delight in flipping dried cow paddies to see how many scorpions I could find and smash with rocks and sticks (kind of a hobby-thing I guess??). I guess you could say that that sting from the scorpion impacted my life a bit. I no longer flip cow paddies, :wacko: but I definitely have a "0"-tollerance for any critter that my eye sees wiggling from out under a rock, within dried leaves, brush, or pine needles :angry:<_< Gary

Hey Gary,

I too, have had some close calls with scorpions when out detecting. Not so much in the winter up here. You are giving good advice! I do have some full fingered gloves in my kit that I will switch to soon as it is warming up. I've never been stung (knock on wood). I have been bit by a diamond back on my right hand though (in my back yard when I lived in Cave Creek). An experience I would care not to repeat! Thanks for the heads up I appreciate it!

Good job on your success lately!

Dean
