I still have a few secret spots over by you Steve, but the pass isn't open yet. This place I just went to also has produced large nuggets. The largest nugget found in Montana was found in the next gulch over. It was 27 troy pounds. The gold bearing gravels cover a 20 square mile area. I'm doing my research to get further up drainage into better nugget territory. I found a fault zone and will be heading back to investigate that spot on a gold bearing creek.

I guess I was wrong. I haven't heard about these ones.

      I got out to Tarnagulla today for about 2½ hrs and as I was detecting back to the vehicle I got a birdshot sounding signal where someone had done a light scrape of the ground.    Down about 1" and I really thought I was chasing birdshot, but when I had it in my hand, until I put my glasses on, I thought it was a rusty piece of steel. 😲

      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.
