Hello everyone, I was able to get out and went to a little gully that I have had my eyes on for a while. The area is an old ground sluice operation. I was bit irritated after arriving at the site to discover some old dig holes, maybe several years old. I was going to have to see what had been left for me. I went over the better looking ground and was not getting nothing but trash when I moved around a bush to see an open slope with just the right kind of rock and ground. I started up the slope and got loud distinct signal. Just an inch later a small round nugget was rolling down the hill. I went over and over the slope with negative results so I headed up the draw. I came up on a run of schist bedrock covered by some brush. I stuck the Sadie down in the most obvious looking crevice and got a real weak signal. After five minutes breaking the bedrock apart I had my second piece of gold for the morning. I was using the ole 3000 with the Sadie coil.

 

The larger piece came in at 1.16 penny weight and the smaller at .24 penny weight. Headed back to the house a bit early to get ready for Tuesday's hunt and more gold. Thanks, TRINITYAU/RAYMILLS

Nice Find Sounds like you had to work for it a little bit but I would love to find any gold , I am new to the nugget shooting up until now I have only owned the CTX 3030 used it back home in iowa and down here in AZ all winter, now I have a nugget shooter that with my jeep rubicon and or my Polaris razor and I should be able to get back to some good spots. Thanks for sharing !!

Great posts as always Ray. I have that same experience getting excited about untouched ground thinking I'm the first to a spot. Its always disappointing to spot those old dig marks. Of course there's always another nugget or two to squeek out, even if a spot has already been hit. Good swinging as always :)

I don't mind seeing dig holes in a new spot. I know I am better than that previous person and enjoy every time I dig up a nugget in a spot like that. Attitude plays a big part in this game...Congrats on the gold Ray.
