Nugget Hunting a Hydraulic Pit
Me and Gary @Two Toes head deep into the Sierra's in search of those elusive Gold Nuggets the Old timers missed.
Yes I include Gary in with the Old Timers as he has Detected this spot before. Nugget Hunting in a Hydraulic pit isn't the easiest thing to do but it's one of the funnest and most rewarding ways of finding Gold.
On this adventure we take three different Metal Detectors The Minelab SDC 2300, White's TDI, and a White's Gold Master V-Sat this allows us to use both Pulse Induction and VLF technologies in our search for Gold and Treasures.
Watch as we pull those Gold Nuggets the old timers missed over a hundred years ago out of the ground !!!!!
Gary finds a old Lead soldered painted Can with Gold inside what did the Old timers us it for ? I find Six musket balls encased in rotting wood how long have those been there ?
Plus Many many old square Nails !!!!!
Thanks for watching I hope you enjoyed the adventure we sure had fun finding all the cool stuff and wondering what and how they used it.
All of the Sierra Nevada national forests will be closed to public entry as of Sunday evening due to extreme fire danger.
Claim holders are supposed to be treated the same as in holders (private land accessed by forest roads) but I'm sure a claim owner would be in for a #&// of a battle if he/she were to attempt to access a claim.
While the forum was down I continued hunting my usual spot. The ground is hard as cement and I require a sweat band on my head but it is still fun. I have found easily 20 plus pounds of lead at this site. I have found tons of random junk I don’t post and a few of the latest good finds I will post. I must say I am still using the DEUS and have come to really like it for ghost town type hunting. It really does separate well in iron if you move slow. The little tag thing was rolled up and I magnified it but still not sure what it says. Oh and I’m usually CVISChris but things have changed
This effort deserves a vote of thanks from all of us.
Hillside Detecting for Placer Gold Nuggets
Armed with a Minelab SDC 2300 and a White's Gold Master V-Sat Jeff and Gary (Two Toe's) try some Hillside detecting for Placer Gold Nuggets. High bench gold in the morning and River deposited gold in the afternoon. We moved a lot of rocks and brush looking for those elusive Nuggets and didnt go home empty handed !!!
Our Hawaiian buddy Tim ( Blue Lead Gold Productions ) likes to send me pictures and video of what we are missing on the island during the winter months so I've included a few clips from him in the video. Hope you enjoy the video.
