    Short Day Out

    It would be hard to do an accurate SG on that sample due to the other impurities with the Quartz. I would put it in "muriatic acid" (hydrochloric acid) for a week/month and see how it cleans up (rinse well).

    Gold I (almost) Ignored

    I was tricked by nature once. I got a beer can like signal at the base of a tree. It turned out to be a horse shoe about six inches above the ground the bark of the tree completely covered the shoe.

    Gold Monster Ferrous Meter Question

    One thing that I learnt about discriminating is, search in all metal. Discriminating works more accurate if you lift the coil up from the soil till it gives a definite soft signal. At this volume adjust your disc level and/or read your VDI numbers. I know of cases where an ounce plus nuggets have overload the detector disc and their mate has got the prize.

    Serpentine Bedrock - Hydraulic Area

    Dead right FredMason, not many people are aware of this. It is not small ones either, I even had one at 25 gm jump to a super magnet, much to everyone's surprise when they saw it.

    Finally Got To 100 Bits Today......

    Well done OneHundredGuy you may not have an Ounce but you sure have a TON.
  10. JR my wife found 3 chinese coins and a gold half sovereign between Adelaide Lead and Amherst, in the early 1980. They were altogether in a 3 foot square. I found nil.๐Ÿ˜ญ

    Serpentine Bedrock - Hydraulic Area

    If you use a super magnet it needs to have it exposed surface flush with your pick so that it can be cleared with one wipe with your hand. I managed this by using car bog filler and/or selleys-knead-it multipurpose-epoxy

    Platinum Nugget Hunting

    DEMAND (and or manipulation eg Silver a few years ago ) not rarity determines the price of a commodity. In recent years only 160 tons of platinum are mined annually, as opposed to 1,500 tons of gold. GB_Amateur I was aware that prices in the article are not current as it has been in the past.In the past platinum has been used to counterfeit gold and has started to happen gain now due to price gap in the price. By the way I have to get someone to buy my gram of Californium soon as it nearly 5 years old now.๐Ÿ˜€
