I posted earlier in the summer about a new spot that I was using the Monster and my Puffer drywasher at; well, I went ahead and claimed it so I could have a place to go play all the time😁The process was a great learning experience, and the guys at our local BLM were really helpful to a newbie like me!

That is awesome Peg. Good for you.👍 You have a bit of hard work ahead of you but some fun times ahead of you as well. Got to love what you have got yourself into. Looks a great spot & love how you are going about it. You shouldn't miss anything that is yellow & heavy. :biggrin: Looks like a bunch of fun & the area is all yours. Go girl.

Best of luck out there

Peg,  Next time I go, you'll have to hire another guy to move all those rocks...LOL.  Gets me tired just looking at the photos.  Now...looking at the gold sure can give me a boost though.  Keep it up girl as I know you earn it. JWD.

      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. 🙂

      Does every metal detector differentiate between junk metal and more valuable metals such as coins or gold? If yes, then how it does?
      Thanks in advance.
