Your Favorite Nugget.....


Recommended Posts


My favorite is a small perfectly formed nugget found in a bedrock crack with a Gold Bug II. It was a rather large crack with about a 1/4 pan of material. I scraped the sand and small rocks into my gold pan and washed it in the Salmon River of Northern California. Out of the black sand popped and golden nugget in the perfect size and shape of a cucumber seed. I garden a lot and was just amazed about this golden seed and how it must have been polished over the years into this shape. Just brilliant in contrast to the black sand around it. I think I still have it somewhere. If so, I’ll post a picture.
