    We had another good good day Thursday with 20 gms all up. I got 10,26g detecting, and Trent panned out 9.5 g for 2 hr dryblowing... Funny part was that Trent sent me an email yesterday urging me to quit f-ing around and find some gold....he said we needed 6 g for 3ounces total... i could only get 4 g yesterday,,,so I was bummed a little.. When I got to his home this morning I reached down like I normally do to get yesterday’s gold, but I found two bottles...l.one was my 4 g and the other was the 10,62g I got the other evening, ,, he had forgotten them in the total... lolol so yeah, it’s kind of a good problem when 1/2 ounce can go missing and we don’t know it...ICAN say he was happy to see the bottles today because we are off this weekend, Queens birthday! By the way he said he knew I had the gold ...it was just a test! My big Yank a...

    Had a good day all around today! Ran the dryblower this morning for a couple of hours and got 8:5 gms... After we went to town and had a cheeseburger and chips,I came back and started detecting...... (well maybe I took a short 💤) I ended up with 7.7 grams for the evening.....not bad for a Yank.. Going to bed soon! Only 40days left ...... me 😭 Trent🎉🎊🎈🍷🍹🍾

    There is a video of the dryblower on this thread. It is pretty simple..scrape with a backhoe. Detect, then, dryblow, then reclaim.

    No problem there Fred. I had been using Trent’s 5000 because it was quieter for me. And that could be operator error. Also I noticed I was getting larger nuggets with the 5000. Nothing wrong with the 7000 I have had 2 of them 🤠 The way we have been working this old worked ground, is to scrape the old piles off the virgin ground and hope there is gold there. We also look for deep ground that had never been pushed and exploit it. of course none of this happens until Trent checks his maps to see if we have a fighting chance. Remember the dryblowing is the primary concern, nuggets are a bonus. so after we dryblow, I take the 5000 with either the 16” NF round or the 17x13 NF Evo.... to quickly pinpoint, after a target is located, I use the sdc... makes it easier instead of diggging bomb craters. In the last 5days I have dug 20gms with the 5000. And to give a simple answer, I just like swinging it. To each his own... Heres what I got this evening.... after we ran 20 ton thru the Dryblower

    I have to give a little background on this area we are pushing. Detecting, and dryblowing... It was supposed to be flogged to death years ago..it's only 15k out of town. Anyway, Trent has been scraping for dryblower dirt, and I get to detect in the evening. We keep finding gold...after the third time scraping it is still giving up bits. I have to jackhammer 90% of them but I love that because I know for certain they are gold! I have been using the 5000 with a 16 nf the cherrypicking the first pass. Then the EVO and the 2300 after that.... The last few days I have been using a 5000/ 17x13 evo and a 2300 I traded for my 7000 . I really like the combo for this work. The last two days I have pulled up 1/2 oz with that combo. 8.01 today...🙂 Carry on!

    Just now backing my car up with the ginny on board to power the jackhammer...Got another one on the cap. 🙂 Hey I need a favor. Could you draw me a schematic of the external battery lead you made for the 5000? With a dean's plug.

    I think maybe he works smarter not harder at this stage in his career And if you didn’t use a jackhammer here you wouldn’t get the gold I have been digging mate.
