The folds, seams and crevices in the gold is stunning. 

I couldn't help but notice those as well. All adding some great character to the gold.

Chris,

  Good to see you got some good pieces out there. Congrats dude !!!  Hope you get approved for the surgery on your appeal. It had been a while since a nice find like that.

Until next time,

Dave

I'm late to this discussion but you are finding more gold while waiting for hip surgery than most of us find while having the luxury of good health. Continued good hunting and here's hoping you heal quickly there's lots of gold in your future.

Filing appeals and grievances so we'll see what happens

One hell of a gold find! Excellent read. As for insurance denial of hip surgery at last minute, OMG is that pathetic yet having 32 years in the American healthcare industry, nothing surprises me HC related ... drop me a message if you so desire, maybe I can help (pro bono) with a terminology advisory on how to structure your written complaints and related matters. Among my lines of work is private investigations specific to the medical field and have had countless battles with parties over fiscal issues. Being scheduled for such a critical need surgery then refused the procedure due to a last day denial doesn't pass the smell test; a "legit" denial backed by evidence would never have reached a point where it was even scheduled.

Hi Mac, I appreciate your reply. I was finally able to speak to someone on the Authorization board of my insurance company. She actually seemed very helpful. She laid out a plan for me to follow in order to get this surgery done out of network.  I should find out end of this week, early next week. If denied again I will definitely look you up. Thank you

Chris, this is awesome! You have done well... this news is good to read. May it work out for you as has been laid out to you by this rep, no further hassles/ headache. It's always interesting to me how it often takes just ONE person in a company to care, to get a good outcome.

      Most of my finds pale into insignificance compared to some of the great gold that is displayed on this forum, but it is what it is.         I got out for a couple of hours yesterday and got this piece about 10 mins after I got there, then nothing.  The good thing about this spot is there is not a great deal in the way of rubbish, so I`m going to spend a bit more time there and hope a few more pieces pop up.     Dave

      That speci I got a couple of weeks ago, I dropped it in Ali Brite about 5 days ago and it came up pretty good.   After it was cleaned the SG came down a fraction, it now sg`s at 2.082 grams gold 🙂

      About 3 or 4 years ago I ran a post about a specimen I got at Tarnagulla at about 6" with pretty well no visible gold, and the sg for quartz said there was maybe 1½ ozs of gold in it, but because there was rock other than quartz, I really don`t know how much gold there actually is.      At the time, I dropped it in acid and then promptly forgot about it till I came across it today.  😲               The main body of it is about half the size it started and there is now gold and gravel in the bottom of the jar.       I`ve taken this photo of the biggest bit remaining, renewed the acid and dropped it back in.         I wont forget it again (I hope).
      Sorry Mitchel, back to the dime   🙂

      I have been scanning 35 mm Slides and came across a guy now resting closer to the gold. He was a real gentle man.   He put a stop to my dredging when he let my wife wear his smaller 16 oz necklace. If I remember right that is a 30 plus oz in his hand. The third photo is my collection of coarse gold I dredged that year.

      Finally got the skunk of the Gold Monster!  All small stuff but I've been in such a drought this year I'm happy to detect any gold at all at this point.  The stuff on the right side of the pan is my oldest son's, he was using his Gold Bug II.  He turned over a boulder and found 19 pieces under it.

      The wife and I got out for a couple of hour detect today and about 1 hour in I got a really iffy signal with the 7000 and it sounded like it was down maybe a couple of inches.    I was really surprised when the hole started getting deeper and deeper and the target was still there. When I was down about 8" in hard ground I got the 2300 my better half was using so I could pinpoint cause I really couldn`t tell where in the hole it was and down about the 12" mark this piece popped out. Looking at it from the side it pretty well looks like a rock but all around the edges there are hundreds of tiny pinpoints of gold.                                                                                                                                   It sg`s at 2.1 grams gold and is my biggest piece in quite some time. 🙂
