Tarsacci On "saving Local History"

I watched a couple of nice relic hunt videos last evening on Larry Hogston"s channel. It did well on some deep bullets in some bad ground.

Larry is going behind himself where he had previously ran the Equinox 800. I also have had similar finds. I am wanting some nice rain. My red dirt ground is very dry & hard on digging. I expect the moisture will help the MDT on deeper targets.

      We hit a Colonial site today that will be lost to development this week.  Sorry about the pics left the finds in my pouch. We are losing sites here at a very fast pace.

      Hello All,
          I have a lot of video footage and pictures from earlier this season, mostly around the Summer time.  I'm just getting some free time to get some of the stuff uploaded and posted.  I figured this would be a nice nugget to post and see right before the Thanksgiving weekend.  This piece was found under about a foot of hardpack, caliche gravels.  This particular gold nuggets, as seen in the video was wedged in a bedrock crack/crevice.  Just makes you think how many years (hundreds, thousands?) this piece has been hiding there.  
      The nugget was difficult to remove from hand tools as we didn't want to damage the piece not knowing the actual size or shape.  We ended up using a Hammer Drill with a chisel bit to extract the gold nugget.  
      The nugget ended up weighing right at 1/4 ounce solid.  We also found another smaller one, about 1/2 Gram in the same crack prior to this piece.  I dug the first smaller one out, but knew it was way too loud of a signal on the GPZ 7000 for it to be that small nugget.  Low and behold, we scanned over the spot again and the signal was pretty much just as load as originally.  
      Tool used were the Minelab GPZ 7000, Minelab GPX 6000, Garrett AT Pinpointer, hand tools, picks and the Hammer Drill.  
      Here is a short video below of the gold nugget find and extraction.  Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving.  Thanks God we are able to enjoy such a wonderful hobby searching for gold.

      Yuba River Crevice Detecting for Gold Nuggets 
      Me and Gary head back to Mother Yuba in search of Gold Nuggets and are joined by Tim from Blue lead Gold Productions.
      Let's Find some Gold on Mother Yuba !!!
      We are armed with the Minelab SDC 2300 and the White's Gold Master V-Sat that gives us both a Pulse Induction detector and a VLF detector.
      While me and Gary clear the boulders off Bedrock to detect Tim gets right to Sluicing with his Angus MacKirk Sluice box.
      The Yuba is known for it's small Gold so he should do pretty good !!!
      Moving those Boulders is hard work but that's what needs to happen to expose the Bedrock Crevices and get those Nuggets in our pockets !!!

      Hello All,
         Here is a short video of a very nice crack/crevice we found earlier this year during the Summer Monsoons.  Prior to this find, we were just weekend warriors placering various areas and metal detecting for nuggets finding a small handful of nuggets per day.  We were not finding anything to really write home about, just the common US nuggets from about a quarter gram and up to 3-4 grams.  
      Working one of these dry creeks, we were hitting a few nuggets in the cracks, but found one we decided to chase down deeper.  Normally we don't do this, as digging down several feet or more to bedrock can be a lot of work, especially if you don't recover anything.  We had a wild hair, so we decided to do so and this spot paid off very well.  As you can see in the video below, the crack started off with two amazing gold nuggets, one was 2.2 ounces solid (just a flat lump) and the other was 1.01 ounces.  The gold nuggets were almost side by side in the same crevice as shown.  
      We ended up finding 3-4 smaller gram sized nuggets in the same crevice, but the bedrock popped right up and the gold just disappeared.  It was a great moral boost for the Summer season, as it's normally pretty hot and nasty during the Summer Monsoons in the Southwestern US.  
      The tools we normally use are shovels, metal rake, crevice tools, metal detector(s) and pinpointer.  We were using the Minelab GPZ 7000 with the new Nugget Finder Z Search 12" coil in this video.  The pinpointer we typically use is the Garrett AT Pinpointer (Orange one).  
      Hope you all enjoy the video.  If you would like to follow us on Youtube, make sure you "Subscribe" to our channel to see all the new videos.  
      Wishing you all a Happy upcoming Thanksgiving and a wonderful prospecting season.  Hope you all have some lunkers under your coils this season! 
      Rob
