  1. Yeah I haven't figured out gold with the Nox yet. I've had nuggets from 6 to in mid 20s Chris
  2. I had one standout deep hole, it was also my largest nugget! In Gold Basin I was walking back to to truck to meet up with my buddy Dave. Moving quick but still detecting. I had done pretty well already with a few nuggets, but more is always better lol. I decided to hit a bench in a wash where we had found a few good nuggets. I run my GPZ very hot so I am used to a bunch of noise. I heard something I thought was ground noise, so I ran the coil over again. Nothing convincing. I almost walked away but did a boot scrape, still wasn't convinced. Another boot scrape, and I almost walked away again
  3. Congratulations! Research like that definitely stack odds in your favor! Chris
  4. Well since my buddy Dave showed of his Nevada nuggets I figured I will too. Great thread Gerry. Seeing all the photos I realized I missed the nugget shooting heyday, but that doesn't mean I'm giving up lol!! Here are some of the bigger Southern Nevada gold i found, mostly from the Johnnie district. Cheers Chris
  5. Tailing piles.....hmmmmmm I need to find some tailing piles 😗. congrats to the finder!! Chris
  6. Great finds, and great info, for people trying to learn!! Chris
  7. Great job, that "little stuff " adds up quick!! Chris
  8. Thanks JW, looks like you had a great find yourself. I found this mineral the same way. I was detecting bedrock on a slope and thought I had a signal. 18 inches into the rock I chipped this outnot really sure what mineral it is.. I was hoping for gold though. Best of luck to you, Chris
  9. Yes, a few different models. I have a GMT that got a lot of small quartz specimens out of tailings.
  10. Definitely vein material, a lot of work with pick axes and rock hammers. Overburden kept falling into the hole so it looks dirty. And the gold would pinch out, but wed dig deeper and find another signal. The GPZ definitely helped
  11. Thanks guys, I appreciate it. There was a lot of luck involved. Here are a couple of other pictures.
