What an awesome new patch to find! Gives us all some hope while we endure the many skunked days/weeks looking for new areas!

The first thing that I noticed was that all of the Nuggets were on the west side of that main wash.  I would have to believe that there should be some good nuggets in that wash too. Maybe it was just to deep for the detector.   Awesome mapping! (And of course....nugget finding)

What a wonderful experience to share with your wife, first of all…It looks as though you are highly organized as far as keeping track of what you are doing and what you have found…working outside known areas is time consuming and most times unrewarding. That fact that you are willing to put your time into it is encouraging. No wonder you have success. Thanks for showing many of us what many will never see but hope to find.

Awesome mapping work! I wonder what some drilling would reveal?

I almost always found nuggets when I wandered away from the groups... I am sure there are plenty of patches and stray nuggets waiting for the willing prospector in Oz.

I can't help wonder what's below the surface layer if you got a kilo with a detector!  Very good job on the mapping.

      Hi all, I have been reading this excellent forum for a couple of years and recently  joined. I live in southern Victoria, Australia and have been detecting on and off for about 20 years and have had a little success but nothing to write home about, but I do enjoy the hobby. I currently own a GPZ7000. I think it is quite heavy but it is amazing the small pieces it can find.   This photo is what I have found so far in 2020.   I do quite a lot of trips away where I come home empty handed.   The piece in the middle is 4.92 grams and the total weight here is 6.01 grams. All these pieces were found around Talbot in central Victoria.    All the best.

      Made for another long 10hr day in the Arizona desert out my front door at 0430hrs  and searching dirt at 0700. After about an hour picked up a little 1.7g meteorite high up on one of the ridges and after a another couple hours finally scored a little .2g piece of goodness in a tailings pile on my way back to the Jeep, I raked down the remainder of the pile but nothing else except tiny bits of rusted tin. Drank a cup of coffee and munched a little trail mix while driving a couple miles to a new spot and after a few hours walking up a small wash I spooked a large jack rabbit he darted out a couple feet and then stopped looking at me about 10 feet away so I started talking to him asking where I might have some better luck. He seemed to understand we were at peace together and relaxed standing up and stretching as he listened to my query flopping his long ears side to side he sat back down and peered up the wash in the direction I was heading as if to say just a little farther up. I poured a small pool of water from my bottle on the ground in case he might be thirsty in thanks and continued on my way, my rabbit friend calmly watched as I took his advise Walking slowly swinging zed. After about 10 min in the middle of the wash next to a small bush I picked up a mellow hi lo tone and scored a slightly bigger .7g piece. It was now nearly 1700hrs and worn out from my long day I decided to call it and headed home for a long night of leg cramps from over doing it, but with a little bit of yellow to show for my efforts well worth the pain.

      I just got back home yesterday from wintering in Arizona and am now seemingly a prisoner in my own home due to the virus. I was able to go out detecting many times with only a few skunk days. The last day out, I found this specimen that is quite different from anything I had found before.

      Hey Guys,
         I had to social distance myself, so I decided on a trip back to the old placers.  Like always, digging tons of iron rubbish, this time I must of dug a dozen iron pick tips.  I'm sure they were using the tips to pry open crack and it would just snap off the tips.  I was working with my Minelab GPZ 7000 all day, moving rocks and racking sections of bedrock off.  I ended up with 6.2 Grams of the good stuff in 5 gold nuggets total.  
      I didn't get a picture of all the nuggets or a final shot, but here are a few I took during the earlier hours.  A few pieces wedged in the bedrock cracks.  
      Wishing and praying for health and wellness for you all during these crazy Coronavirus times. 
      Rob
