Fairly sure it was a single print run in 1979 and not reprinted since. Although you can print off your own via the net now.

Mine was obtained as soon as it was released back then. The price was reasonable but can't remember how much, not like today everything is priced as much as they can get.

That is the one. I have a copy and have (as in the book) always referred to nuggets as those lumps of gold being 20ozs or better. Not tiny specks that require a scientific set of scales to even measure.

Never having found a nugget, I can't say. I'm just grateful to have found some large specks! :smile:

 Had a giggle about that, explains why many specks sold on ebay are into the OZ States that refers to smaller than 20oz as a speck, poor unfortunate buggers have to import specks.🤪

So I guess this means that a detector which can find a speck in Australia is really not that great of a detector for use elsewhere? 🤔.        😉
