Mark we were out detecting in some washes with a lot of old dry wash workings besides that piece my brother got 3 nice pieces also,in between the pieces of old screen and wire and tacks you would get a good target or two.

That's a very nice find in my book.  2 grams is not small in my 'neighborhood'.

Congratulations !!  :biggrin:

      Got out with my buddy Dave today to do some detecting. We had the plan to try a new area, and if that didn't pan out we would go back to the area I had had some luck the last 2 outings. 
      We struck out in the new area, and headed to the old one. I went out trying to expand on the new patch...no luck. Dave hung around the area where I found the patch 2 weeks ago. I started exploring a bit looking for good ground when Dave radioed me that he had found a couple nice nuggets.  I made a beeline to meet up with him, still working my GPZ when I hit a great mellow signal. Turned out to be a 2+ gram nugget and the start of a 5 nugget patch. Biggest being 3g. We had lunch a made another run for no luck, but a great day nonetheless. 
      My nuggets 6.4 grams

      Dave's score, with a nice big nugget.

      Hi guys, Yesterday Mrs JW & I went to scout some new ground. Found a very likely looking area but had no idea whose property it was. We decided to go to an old haunt that wasnt too far away. I called in to see the farmer to let him know we were there. I asked if he knew who the property owners were of the area I had the interest in. He did so he gave me a name & a phone number. Just happens to be the property next door to the large glass jar full of gold story I told on Simons gold/diamond ring find post. It was getting too late to make that contact & to go back to that property so we just stayed where we were & I detected on there. Got skunked with both the Zed & the Nox with the new 6" coil. Bugger.
      Come sunday I thought I would try to rectify that. Didnt travel too far from home & didnt get out until after midday. Was to a spot I hadnt been to since my GP 3000 days where I had got a few bits. I don't know why but there was just heaps of rubbish. I didn't recall this much rubbish back with the 3000. I had visions of another skunk. I started heading back towards my wagon & thought I would try one more spot that seemed very unlikely but there had been some mining activity here in the early days. There were a few remains of old tailing races & water ditches & a bit of bedrock showing. Was making hard work of it with just more rubbish & no gold to show. I got a signal over some bedrock & it lived on down a bit more than a lot of the rubbish targets had done. So I was getting a bit more confident. Hacking into a crevice & the signal was still in there.
      Finally it was out. Waved the magnet through the dugout pile where the signal was now coming from. Signal still there. Could have been a .22 shell casing like so many had been. Or its lead bullet head as others had been as well. But it wasn't.
      Looks a bit like a snake's head. 
      1.14 grams
      Beat the skunk. But that was it. But I was happy with that. Cheers
      Good luck out there

      I decided that since it's been a while from my last visit to one of my favorite gold hunting locations It  was time to charge up the batteries, brave the heat and find some gold.
      Only managed to dig up these 3 little ones but still it was a good day 🙂

      Some one found a nice little nugget with the EQ 800 using the 11" coil,
      John.

      A gold nugget - claimed to be one of the biggest ever found in Britain - is reported to have been discovered in a Scottish river.
      The gold, dubbed the Douglas Nugget, weighs 85.7g, and has been estimated to be worth more than £50,000.

      This should get all you UK guys inspired to put down your coin detectors and go gold hunting, the Nox users are already part way there. 🙂
