After detecting this little no name gully 4 or 5 times it was getting hard to find a target, but today was my lucky day. I got a broad, mellow inverted signal that gave me a gut feeling I was on something good. It was up on the bank of the gully in some nice red mud. I was hopefull , but so many of these type of targets can be a deep piece of trash. Down a foot or so it was out in the pile and I couldn't see it because it was all covered with slimey mud . I got it in my hand first grab and started mashing up the handful of mud and then I saw the flash of gold. Wow!!! I was in shock for a few minutes. No matter how many times you pull out an ounce plus nugget, the incredible thrill never diminishes. Gpx 5000, and 14"E Nuggetfinder. 1.2 troy ounces.----Bob

Congradulations Bob, that's one heck of a nice nugget you have there. I bet that made your day (it would make my whole year).

Awesome ouncer, Bob!!! I was beginning to think you'd uprooted yourself to the land of the dinks! Not just an ouncer, but a unique, high character beauty ... These days, that'll be at least a $2500 collectors' piece ... WTG ... Cheers, Unc

Bob--what an incredible find! Excellent nugget--a true heart-stopping beauty. And, you're so right about how finding it never gets old.

 

All the best,
