  1. In my almost 50 yrs of MD'ing across six different countries I find myself going back to the GOLD more often than not. Yes I've dug more than my share of Roman coins and even a few scare items dating BC when I swing the history rich fields of England's past. Yes I've pulled a few stunner diamond bling rings in the scoop from the salty seas across the warm water coasts of this world. Yes, I've been the 1st to touch a rare Civil War relic that was lost during battle of our freedoms in the rich soils of our original 13 colonies. On occasion my hand has been the 1st to reach down and pull a treasure from outer space that was sitting on the desert floor just waiting for someone to see/know what it is (meteorite). And yes to this day, I enjoy cutting a deep plug and popping out a silver dollar or even a Merc dime, for that matter from a 100 yr old house. But the reality is I seem to go back to the gold for most of my hunts. Why does it pull me/you more than the other kind of treasure metal detecting? For some, it could be about the money and value of gold? At times I probably think and direct my next hunt to that as well, but yet I've sold very little. I know my wife would rather see me spend more time chasing gold, as she keeps saying to find enough to retire. Is it really about the money though? Maybe it's the solitude of being out in the middle of nowhere and not having to listen to the constant hustle and bustle of everyday life? Being the only person on the side of a mountain and all you hear is sounds of nature around you? How about being in the isolate desert, the 1st (only person) to wake up, make your cup of Joe and watch the sun rise as you figure your direction and plan of attack to find a few Au dinks? I do enjoy my annual hunts with friends and the camaraderie we share. It's so exciting (for me anyway) when someone finds their 1st of something (gold wedding band, 1800's Indian Head Cent, 1st silver coin or even gold nugget. I was there and in a way helped them accomplish their goal. I try to capture the moment and enthusiasm as it's their first and may never happen again. As a pretty skilled detectorist (but always willing to listen/learn more) I do enjoy the challenge of Nugget Hunting as I feel it's one of the hardest styles of MD'ing to accomplish and succeed at. Maybe in a weird way we enjoy the defeat of not finding and or the hardships Prospecting seems to bring? I know for a fact I've had more talks with the man above when on such "trying to find gold" trips. For me, I think it's a combination of all above and probably other reason I've yet to bring up, but at different %'s. I really don't think there is a right or wrong answer on this and why we chase gold over other treasures. What's your excuse and some reasons as I'm looking forward to hear your thoughts?
  2. As a dealer who sells them and tries to keep up with my customers, I've had a few with issues and would say it is more than the norm. No excuse at all but I would guess they are having the same issues we are here in the US for keeping people at work. Just imagine the demand for a new product and at the same time so many people don't want to work don't want to be about anyone and then the Covid protocol kicks in and if someone tests positive, every person around them is sent home. The reality is there are issues with many companies and products right now. I would expect this to go on for another 6 months. My issues with the GPX-6000. 1) It finds gold so easy, I have to bend over more than I did with the other PI's and that's not good on my bad back I got from swinging a GPZ-7000 for so long. 2) It finds smaller nuggets so easy, I have to actually wear my glasses and filter the dirt. Now I have to carry glasses. 3) It's so much lighter in weight and better ergonomics, I find myself detecting longer hours and finding more pieces of gold. You would think this is great, until you realize you didn't get time to relax and have a beer or shot of whiskey with your comrades. 4) I'm finding smaller nuggets with this PI than any other before and sometimes I easily lose them before I get back to the truck. It pisses me off when I admit (easy come - easy go). 5) I find the external speaker works so well and is so loud I just assume the target is near the surface and then find out it's actually deeper. 6) The detector is so compact, it gets lost in my camper. Heck I even lost it in my truck one time and actually drove back home thinking I forgot to pack it. I'm wasting precious time trying to find it. In days past, the GPZ-7000 would take up the whole passenger seat or half the bed in my trailer. No more with the 6000, but I might put one of those beepers on it and keep the fob with me. I lost full size F-350 long bed 4 dr super duty truck one time in a parking lot. That beeping fob saved my ass. 7) The simplicity of the GPX-6000 is boring my brain. Who the hell sells a $6000 detector and all you pretty much have to do it hit the power button and a couple others. How can my brain grasp something I have no control? 😎 Not wearing a big bulky harness anymore is not what I expected. Now I have nowhere to pack my pick and I have no bungee to get in a fight with each time I bend over. 9) The cost of coils and battery is not inline with a $6000 detector. A GPX-5000 battery is $441 and this is only $165. A GPZ-7000 coil is $1000+ and this is less than $400. How is a dealer supposed to make a living selling accessories. 10) The amount of gold nuggets my customers are finding is the best Success of any high end gold machine in many years. Now I am getting accused of planting gold and taking pictures of the same gold over and over. I'm a Karma guy, just saying. Minelab, You ever pull this shit again and I'm done buying detectors. You could go out of business, me too.
  3. jrbeatty - Thanks for allowing us to peak into your and Reg's history book. I can only imagine (no I can't) the amount of knowledge of detectors in the minds of those 6 in the pic. Heck, think of this. What would the treasure pile look like if you took all 6 of you and the finds you've all made through your careers. Heck I get excited and thrilled just being around accomplished TH'ers. Getting to hear stories and read your posts with pics is very rewarding. The ball is most interesting as well and another treasure of its own kind. Thanks again. Steve - Hey now...lets keep it on the low for a few more years, I'm not retired yet and still trying to mine the miners. 🤑
  4. Sevastras - At least you have the top 3 performing detectors for their tasks. Xcal is known worldwide for providing ring bling to beach hunters and divers. Equinox 800 is on a league of it's own right now as a true world class multi use detector. The GPX-6000 is will be the talk of the town for quite some time. Your desire to get away on occasion and just to find anything, will eventually come around to success. I realize your 1st hunt in Hawaii did not produce what we all dream of, but to be fair, either did my 1st few trips. Learning the ropes and always trying to get better will reward you. Thanks for allowing me to be your dealer of choice. Oneguy - The worst part about "that patch", is if you drop it...you may not find it again. If you put it in your mouth to get the dirt off, you might actually not knowingly spit it out....or swallow it. No worries, I always carry a gold pan, just in case. Joe D. - Most of us have those other things in common. But at least we have the tools/toys/detectors to use if an opening of time arrives. How far can you get in a day is the other issue. Thanks for comments.
  5. Nice question Dan and the others have given great input. My experience (on average) is a Patch is never totally hunted out. There are so many variables and even ones you and I have no control over. New detector technology - Usually will get you a few more nuggets (as the GPX-6000 is doing right now). Same detector with a different timing (GPX-5000 and or even GPZ-7000) can wake up a few signals to dig. Same detector different size coil will add a few nuggets to your pouch. Same detector, different timing, different size coil (GPX-5000 & GPZ-7000) Same detector, different direction of Sweep. It amazes me that on occasion I can get a better signal response to a nugget and as I circle and swing at same time, the other direction does not produce the same response? Example, flat nugget on edge in a crack. Same detector different time of the year, which will have less or more moisture in the ground (VLF's have this issue and even the PI's and ZED on occasion). Same detector a year later could produce a couple nuggets. Our soils in the NW states freeze and that many times each year and that causes targets to move up and or down. Same detector, same area but you move some overburden. Many places in NV, they scrape with heavy equipment and then they swing again and could find more gold. Same detector but hunt at night. It's been proven with quite a few detectors, the ground temperature is not as hot and so some sites, you get better depth and a smoother operating detector. Your skill level, coil control, ear will get better and that MOST CERTAINLY can produce more gold on the patch. I could keep going on, but these are a few. FOR ME. I have yet to totally write off any patch that I have found gold. But there are times I might hunt a site and when my mind says it's time to go somewhere else, I listen and do it. When around your patch, definitely hunt the fringes. You can always go back to the old worked out patch if they don't produce. I've been detecting patches at Rye Patch for over 25 years and I'm still finding a few nuggets. See you at the patch.
  6. I've yet to find any, but I do enjoy talking about it. Heck sometimes I try to tell folks I found a few ounces or a big one and they just laugh and think I planted. I don't know, maybe I just dream about digging gold and have actually never done it. I show enough for folks who are interested in a detector to realize not all dealers who sell are the same. A select few of us (Rob, Bill, I ) are pretty active gold nugget detecting dealers. Doc and Chris, probably a few others have earned their stripes as well but have limited time these days. I'll be honest and my opinion. I feel most customers DO NOT do themselves justice when purchasing a gold detector. They search the internet trying to figure out the best gold detector and then go to big mail order sites to order it. I get calls and emails constantly from folks who are having issues with their detector or think it's not operating properly while they are in their backyard. I ask, why you did not purchase from a dealer who actually uses the product and or why you calling me? I hear every excuse in the book. Yea, I actually did find a big gold nugget once.
  7. I've done that exact same thing and sometimes it so stupid, as I know for a fact not a sole is around me within miles. Then afterwards I just giggle to myself. Yes the stories I was told and some of the pics I was allowed to see into Pieter's life were just amazing. Glad to see you, Mr. Beatty still enjoying the hunt and love your wealth of knowledge. If you ever get around to it (maybe you already did), I'd love to see the 27.7 whopper you pulled with the GPZ-7000. Just curious, was it at depth beyond the other big Minelabs of past?
  8. I guess Google thinks me using the term "Gold Diggers" often when I'm trying to sell my product, is of a different era. Heck, I haven't been on a 2 legged gold digger site in at least a week, ok maybe a few days ago.🤣 How often do they track me? Why do they not show pop ups of trucks and hot girls in trucks? Yes ads are what pays the bills, I understand. I think I'll click (c-l-i-c-k) on a few today to help pay some of Steve's bills. What's funny (I can laugh at myself, so you can laugh at me as well - good to laugh on occasion) is of all people, it was Jennifer who noticed the error in my spelling. Why did Spell Check not catch it? Wonder what will pop up if I start googling "crack crevicing"🤫. Anyway, if this thread gets to crazy Steve and needs to be removed, I'm good with it. Everyone take a deep breath and put a little crack in your smile today😏 as it makes those around you wonder why your so happy. That's exactly what this world is missing right now, a bunch of cracking happy faces..
  9. Very good nugget. Your friend does not understand the value of "Quality". A 30" rainbow is like a 1/2 oz nugget to me, quite rare but doable.
  10. The Rookie GoldPanDan catches on quite quick. Yes this particular gold piece is what's known as a REVERSE SIGNAL, which is not the norm. Well done Prospector Dan, well done. Rookie no more.
  11. Glenn in CO - What I so much envy about you and even more than the amazing gold you recover, is that you get to do it with your favorite detecting partner by your side (your wife). You belong to a very elite club there my friend and please hug her, praise her and really let her know how lucky you two are. Now on to that beautiful gold, your abilities of proper cleaning has reached a new level and as a guy who has found my share, I'm envious of your attention to detail. Yes the pursuit/hunt and the surroundings of it are usually the most overlooked by many... but yet is the biggest reason we're out there. The gold is usually secondary. Now you keep doing what your doing and letting us see a little on occasion, golden dreams. Thanks for providing input and drool material. Redz - Yes I know such folks and a select few are customers of mine. On a really rare occasion when I get to see one of them, I might be shown a peak on their cell phone of some rare and raw Au. Sometimes mammoth in size, other times museum quality pieces or just volume of ounces. These few folks don't need peeps chasing them around the hills and or trying to find where they make their living. That's part of who some folks trust me, I've learned when to stay mum. It's a dog eat dog world out there when gold is around and you better know your true friends. Well said. Norvic - I like your words and especially we spoilt. Yes Sir most of us are. Could you imagine what a genuine 49's prospector with his life supplies strapped to the back of his mule, would think of us today and all our high tech gizmos and gadgets. We're spoilt alright and sometimes that's why we live to get out into the unknown. It's nice to just shut it all off on occasion and just listen, walk and see. On a side note, it sure it nice to swing into the coffee drive thru and not even have to get out of the truck.
  12. So this pops up in the middle of me reading one of the posts. Am I on the right forum? And NO!!! I did not click on the link.
  13. Nobody has chimed in yet on the video of something I thought to be of importance. Maybe a few salty dogs already caught on and are waiting for newer non seasoned nugget hunters? Interesting🤔?
  14. Norvic - Yes even some of the Aussies are realizing the importance of proper ergonomics and the performance is even better than I had expected for the majority of gold we have left. Like you, my 7000 is not for sale yet, but it has become a dust collector in the corner. She probably is a little mad that I don't take her out for a spin on occasion. Joe D. - Those around me know, I get excited with a detecting find pretty easily. Heck to be honest, I also get excited if it's not a detector find. Finding a cool arrow head, a nice old bottle or spotting a bull elk, it all gets me going. nvchris - You bring up a great point many of us are missing. The ability to cover ground quickly with the 17" coil to find a patch and then slow down and methodically work said area. Have you sold your 7 yet or keeping it for those deepest of deep nuggets? Also if you don't mind, I love the pic of your partner (dog) and the truck. I also see the cooler, with electrical plug and the cooler is covered with some kind of insulating blanket? It would be nice if you could start a post of the cooler and what you have went from to this and the experiences both good and bad. That would be a fantastic help for some of us who are wanting to solo in the back of our truck. It's becoming quite popular in the US now. Thanks for giving input. GotAU? - Sounds as if you have lived a pretty entertaining life being around a lot of people in the outdoors. Seeing and feeling the weight of gold is something some of us never forget. Gold Catcher - Your perspective of Success is TOPS in my book as well. Yes I sometimes use the term Success in the amount of gold recovered, but the reality of it for me....is the ability to be out there in gods country (may it be mountains or desert) and absorbing what is around me and the beauty provided. YES as well, LOCATION is key. A special thank for taking the time to let us know your preferred setup and settings on the GPX-6000. Reg Wilson - I'd love to see your dance when finding a multi ounce nugget, or hear yours inner thoughts and comments when finding that tip off nugget that is about to bring you a new 20+ ounce patch. Funny how you call .4 gram nuggets (bits) and almost of a (yea down the road when I get to it). 120 bits to the ounce = .4 gram on average for each nugget. In the US, most of us will work that (yawner, whenever) patch out in a heartbeat. I'd so much love to sit around a campfire one night and just absorb some of your true stories of hunts/gold finds. I was honored to last winter to sit around a camp fire in AZ one night and hear of gold stories and recoveries by Pieter Heydelaar. On a side note, I see your profile showing "Gear Used" does not mention the GPZ-7000 any more but shows the new GPX-6000. Do you have any regrets? Thanks for your input.
  15. Yes, very good question Dan and it is worthy of its own post, so I won't give my input yet.
  16. Very well said Steve and gobs of fantastic info mentioned. I want those who are new to the game and or those who play a few times each year to pay attention to these four paragraphs above and his words of field knowledge/testing. If you are thinking of purchasing a new detector, or trading, upgrading detectors, he is telling you the findings he's experienced so far in the area he's been detecting. I posted it on here before the GPZ-6000's came out and some folks had issues with it (which is fine to question a detector not yet in our hands), that I have been with Minelab for near 25 yrs and a pretty good nugget chaser with their different gold detector products. Minelab makes very few mistakes or steps backwards when a new technology machine comes out. I said in the US, the GPX-6000 would be the desired high end detector. It would be the most talked about and posted finds of gold with the GPX-6000 than any other gold detector and that is pretty much what we are seeing. Yes the SDC-2300, GPX-5000 and GPZ-7000 can do a select certain thing or 2 better than the GPX-6000, but overall and for the majority of people who desire a high end gold detector and for the gold we are finding in the US, the 6000 wins EASILY. Thanks again Steve for taking the time to share your knowledge with us as that was quite a write up.
  17. Valens, You never know about me, sometimes I just need to take a trip and as always, detector is priority and goes with me before extra clothing.
  18. Has to be something there for me to want to swing. SD and gold? I watched a series on teli once called DEADWOOD and not sure if it's the real deal. SWEGIN....
  19. It's funny how I get so excited over a find and sometimes it's not near the biggest I have recovered. I guess because I set a goal for a trip to go and dig a nicer piece of gold than what I and most others in the US have been finding. Then if it happens, the emotions release. I'll tell you guys this about me and a select few who I hunt with. Patience is tough for most detectorists and the average Joe (no pun intended) can't hang. Let me rephrase that, the average Joe has not learned the patience game yet. When I go to hunt bigger gold, I usually end up with nothing for 3 full days straight. Heck, I've went 6 days, average 7 hr swing time = 40+hours and not 1 nugget to show for. Then the next trip I could find 2 in the 1st day, but not often. Your turn will come Rob as I know your skill and patience are proven. Thanks for the kudos guys.
  20. Yes I finally did get a chance to hunt for larger gold with the GPX-6000. This video has some quirks and I am sorry. Shooting video is not my expertise as you can tell. Error #1 and many of us do it. Keep the phone Horizontal (left to right) to get full size viewing. Error #2, be sure to have someone else shooting the video while holding camera Horizontal and not shaking as much. Now for the bit of info that many of you may have missed in this video. I won't reply with answer yet, but will give a hint "sound". So yes a get a little excited and yes I mumble and stumble for words. Heck I sometimes freeze up and slowly look around to make sure nobody sees it or me. I have heard other do that as well, why? What would you do?
  21. Flakmagnet - Yes the GPZ-7000 has served me well. I still love the performance but hate the weight/ergonomics. Reminds me of an old girlfriend I had, she knew how to keep a smile on my face, but afterwards my back was worthless for a few days. What's that saying, "hurts so good". Well the truth is starting to show with the performance of the 6000 and the amount of happy customers going home with gold in so called worked out patches, is hard to ignore. We also know the majority of bigger gold in the areas we frequent in US has already been picked. So moving over to the 6000 is just logical for many. To be honest, I actually still own a GPZ-7000. Not sure how long I'll drag it around in the truck as a Back Up though. I think the longer we wait, the less value it will have. The other aspect (I doubt it though, is if Minelab releases a new GPZ-8000) next year or just leaks of onw, then the 7000 prices will really drop. As for upgrading, your call buddy and I have no hard feelings either way. Honestly, as long as you are having fun with what you have and don't feel your have more fun with the new, then keep the old girl. Rick - You have been there this summer since the GPX-6000 has come out more than I, so for those of you who think I say what I do just to make sales, you don't know me that well. Rick don't work for me, he's just another gold digger that does really well and is not afraid to try the new. Your words in the 6000 for RP is golden. Geof_junk - That aussie gold sure looks so nice and wish just the right amount of shine added. Your lady digger Carol must have had surgery swinging that pounder. That picture will go down with you two to your graves and well earned. Would love to hear the true story behind it and the hunt that took place to find it. Thanks for inspiration and a blast from the past. Gold Hound - Amazing pic taken there. Is the handful of Au a season or a trip? Yes I too feel the need for a 14 - 16" round MONO will add some depth to the GPX-6000. Jonathan did mention he felt the GPX-6000 was on par for depth of the GPX-5000, so if that is true, that's perfect and fine with me. You Aussie mates still have untouched ground and also proven ground that has had little pressure with big gold detectors. Yes we have a few in the US, but out patches so small when compared to what I have seen in Oz land. Again, beautiful pic of Au and lets hope CoilTek is getting their ducks in a row real soon. Klunker - I have seen both ends of the spectrum. When I was taking groups to Ganes Creek Alaska, I witnessed a guy get so pissed off he wanted flown out immediately, because he was not finding gold and most others were. . I've witnessed guys wrap a $5000 detector around a tree and have seen a few detectors get air-born across the hillside. Not the kind of folks I prefer to be around, but they do provide a little bit of entertainment. As for just digging up a major find and then doing something stupid, buddy I have to disagree on that part. I once dug a 10 ounce rock (my 1st big honker) and literally dove head first into the pond next to the tailing piles. it wasn't until 10 minutes later I realized my wallet was still in my pocket. The pics of the nugget below is the one that I freaked out. In the 90's while on a detecting trip to England I was detecting with well known TH'er Jimmy Sierra Normandi (a detector legend) started jumping up/down running in circles and thanking god. He and a couple others run over to me and asked to see the gold coin. Heck it was my 1st Roman coin and worth about $2, I didn't care. Then when I did find my 1st gold coin, it was in the US. After I gathered my emotions, I drove to the nearest high point to get a cell signal and called my dad (the same guy who put a detector in my hand in 1972) and started crying like I kid. I was so overwhelmed to finally be the 1st in our family to find a gold coin. pic below. So I do get a little excited and probably do and say stupid shit when something special happens. But I also get very excited when one of my own friends or clients digs a special find. Guess I just like to act silly sometimes. I look forward to hearing your report and the pros/cons of the GPX-6000.
  22. Tom, I'm really big on making/sharing memories with a metal detector. Yes those trips are worth more than the gold itself.
  23. Sometimes the video and or pics give up to much info. I don't mind sharing pics on occasion but locations would get me left down a big deep mining pit. You can imagine how hard it is to find locations that still produce big gold. It take time, long built friendship and trust. Sorry but I won't jeopardize a relationship with friends over gold. It's fun, exhilarating, I get a natural high and love every minute of it. The reality is for me, I don't need gold to survive, but I know of those who do, so I've learned to walk around them cautiously. Yes I would want to know as well. So YES the video is coming. As far of where it was found. I hunt the NW states pretty regularly.
  24. Genuine real Minelab as I was original dealer. (Update- Somehow the pics of the actual detector are not at the top but are posted in here, my bad). Unit has been used and owner recovered gold so it has the standard light scuffs as expected. All factory shipped items come with it. Nothing broken, nothing cracked, nothing missing other than a new owner. I try to take clear close up pics for everyone to see so you know exactly what you get. I've been a Minelab dealer for approx 25 yrs and very well known so you have no worries. $5699.99 shipped and no tax. Yes you can join us at Rye Patch NV for a 3 day training session or this winter in AZ for a 1 day 1 on 1 with Lunk. Pics of Lunk, my customers Success and the gold recovered with their GPZ-7000's is not part of the deal, as I'm not that rich.
  25. If you just purchased a gold detector are you most interested in the finding of any size of gold? Does the size of the gold have any effect on you or does it matter most if you go home with a few nuggets, no matter the size? Is it most important to be driving home from your prospecting trip and you have a few clinkers in your nugget holder? Or would you mind knowing you missed a few small pickers just to find a 1 grammer (a nugget). My asking this question comes to mind as of the last month and a half, I have seen more of my customers showing/sharing pics of Success with their GPX-6000 and many from Rye Patch and surrounding areas. Heck I have a few customers that are already over 100+ count. Nothing big, but they seem to be happy and to me that is what counts most. What's most amazing to this long time 25+ yr detectorist of Rye Patch is the new PI technology of the GPX-6000 and how it's changing my mind and how I sell detectors. You see, I used to say if I wanted to find 10+ pieces of gold a day, I could easily do it with a VLF and small coil. Heck, I used to have many 25 to 30 and an occasional 40 piece day with said VLF. When I would run a PI, the last 10 yrs there at RP, a 10 nugget day is extremely rare, but I've done it. The SDC-2300 really opened some old patches and 10+ days came back. Then those went away and the GPZ-7000 came out. It certainly opened up the old patches again, but even 10 a day was really tough, but I did it more times than most can imagine. Now today, a 10 nugget day at RP with a SD/GP/GPX-5000 is almost failure. In fact I would not even try it. Even with a VLF at RP today, I think a 10 piece day is tough and I doubt but only a few can do it. Here is the catch though. If I did run a VLF to find 10 pickers, I'd have maybe a gram of gold at most = approx $50. Now here is what I'm seeing. The folks who go out there with the new technology PI GPX-6000 is literally tearing it up. Many customers are having their best Success in numbers that they have ever had at Rye Patch. Quite a few of them have had 10+ nugget days, but they never had a 10+ day with their GPZ-7000? No they are not finding the 1 or 2 gram nuggets of old, but they are certainly finding $100 and some even more each day. Heck I'm even getting customers who have yet to take my training going down and finding a few pieces with their GPX-6000 and that was unheard of in times past. The GPX-6000 right now is the #1 producer for gold at Rye Patch and all other previous patches. The GPX-6000 will be doing the same thing this winter is Arizona at all the worked patches and there will be many happy customers. Will there be GPZ-7000's out there in the field, most certainly, but their numbers will not be up even close to what the 6000's will be. Can I find gold at RP right now with a GPZ-7000, YES and I have done it for the last 7 yrs. Each fall I go down and find an ounce of nuggets with a 7. Each year it has gotten harder and harder and last Fall it actually took a couple extra days, but I hit my 1 ounce mark. There lies the problem, it has been out for 7 yrs and for 7 years all the old patches have been covered again and again with a GPZ-7000. From Rye Patch to AZ all the known nugget producing areas have been flogged and if you want to have Success, you better step over to new technology if you want best chance of Success or you can keep swinging the 7 and possibly get lucky for a 1 grammer or 2. As a dealer who sells detectors, I feel Success no matter the size of nuggets is best for my customers, especially the new ones just getting involved. BTW, If anyone is interested, I know of a couple used GPZ-7000s at nice prices (less than the cost of a GPX-6000), just email me for details. So I ask you again. Going home with any nuggets possible to show Success or 1 nugget of a gram or don't care as you got to go prospecting and the gold is just a bonus? There's a twist. Looking to hear your answers and I know Australia will be different perspective, which is totally acceptable.
