Mr Pocket: My Finds Day 2

Recommended Posts


I honestly don't know how JW does it.  There is more to it than equipment.  I was on the Gold Bug Pro most of the day digging masses of shotgun pellets and small scraps of metal, yet no gold.

You'd think in among that would be one little nuggie but no, especially when JW got 5 and by the looks of a majority of them they were well within reach of the Bug! 🙂

There is something I am yet to learn, and I think it's "where to look"

Well done as always JW, you finding them like that keeps me motivated 🙂

You’re a quick study, Simon; I believe you’re about to unlock another level-up!

JW, another great photo-prospecting ride-along.

You definitely have unique ground conditions vs. where I hunt, and you seem to be a wizard on your Z: tiny pieces like that are amazing finds!

Thanks for the tag-along, and all the best,

Lanny

You are certainly a fine tuned machine Mr JW, as those 5 dinks don't even break the gram mark.  You my friend are on your A Game.

      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. 🙂
