If I didn’t know where you are from, I’d swear these are Valley Oak trees in the Sierra foothills in central California’s motherload country! Some of my favorite places I’ve been!

Yep...looks exactly like where I live

I was able to earn a little yellow heavy metal from Lake Tahoe.



Last pic - My CTX-3030 says something metallic in the rock.


Thanks for sharing those amazing pics of your detecting exploits Gerry. You are definitely a well travelled exponent of our fantastic hobby. ?

Some Photos from Vic and WA Aus.

Whites 6000D and Aus Whites GoldMaster from early 1980s on the beach after Gold jewellery.


Panning South of Ballarat. Note proper Steel Gold Pans.  ? 


VIC. Claim I took out after finding 26+ oz in one day.


The brother-in-law on claim.


WA.  Where I found my largest bit, 3500 gm with nearly 17 ounces of gold. 


General Area of above.


Same area but wide view of general spot.


A photo that was used on another forum that has now gone the way of many others.


Four hundred small bits about 0.3 to 0.4 gm each.


I bet you wish gold was $2000US back then.....$$$$$$
