Another nice looking haul again. Soon you will have an ounce in short time, but a lot of work for it.

Good luck on your next outing and could you please send me the GPS numbers of where you were at, just so that I don't run into you while I'm out there.

I'll do better than that.  Gold is from up on Notellem creek, just north from the old bridge about 500-600yrds up is an old pine snag and acrossed the creek is a large boulder, just up on the bench above the boulder...start scratching those cracks!!!!!

I was dredging in No Cal in the 80s , had to put gear on backpack & climb into creek [ 4-10' wide x 1'-4' deep ] end of summer .

Was working an area where I could just keep my head out of water bareilly , and feel around like racoon and then wait for the water to clear .

Bedrock was on one side ot the creek and dropped quickly , felt a CRACK then bedrock into the creek .

About the 3rd time working this crack - about one inch or so at the top , I looked down again with goggles on and while my face was in the water - I screamed [ maybe the 1st I remember ever screaming ] reached down , finger wide - looked much bigger , at the top of the crack was a nugget that was shaped like a heart , got on the scale latter and it weighed just under 3/4 ounce 😉

Started retiring from union carpentry 😉

      Had another good month hunting the low tide wet sand slopes at a few local beaches. Some large surf eroded out a few areas, lots of black sand and lots of targets! Spent half the time in "All-Metal" and half in "Tone Mode".  For me, tone mode comes in very handy when weeding out those annoying pesky tent stakes when there is an abundance of them on the beach. I ran stock settings for tone mode and it worked out great at one of the beaches I was working that was littered with tent stakes!  The find of the month was a nice 14k LeVian ring, the surprise find of the month was another gold tooth crown, which makes my 3rd for the year! Acid tested it and confirmed it's 18k. I see Compass found one recently too. You would think the cremation process would completely melt the crowns into blobs, I guess the heat doesn't reach that point? Anyway it was a fun month. I went out recently after the oil spill for a night time negative low tide hunt, beaches were pretty sanded in unfortunately. I did encounter some tar blobs on the beach, but I always wear muck boots when hunting the wet sand anyway so I had no issues with oil on my feet. I was surprised to see a surfer out in the night time waters and also someone walking their dog on the shore..
      So totals for the month were:
      10k - 2.1 grams
      14k - 15.7 grams
      18k Dental Gold - 4.1 grams
      925 - 3.65 oz
      Thanks for looking, GL & HH out there!
