Seven years.  I got a bit frustrated and paid Ray Mills considerable cash for help.  After an introduction session that Fall, he took my buddy and me to a better place that Spring.  Over the next few days I found 63  mostly sub-gram "nuggets".  My buddy the @@@,  fount 79.

You've got to admire him on two levels, honesty and persistence. It's an interesting topic, a good percentage of people started finding gold when the technology improved, I do wonder how many small pieces I missed with my ground hog, before I found a piece large enough for it to register. At the time we had no choice the A2B was state of the art.
