    0.5 gram nugget found yesterday in NH.

    Got out yesterday for some gold panning and metal detecting with the XP Deus with the new 9" HF coil. Please believe me when I tell you that this thing picks up the tiniest specks of gold.

    I was running in 58.8kHz and was finding specks of gold so small, I could barely see them.

    This nugget right here weighs in at half a gram and it damn near blew my headphones off. It was a good day...Click image for larger version.

    You ain't kidding. Until now, the biggest nugget from NH I've ever seen with my own eyes was .19 grams and was found by a friend while crevassing.

    Thanks. Yeah, I'll definitely be back. You know, they say every nugget has its own personality, and looking at this thing, I can totally see it.

    Yeah, I've seen quite a few come out of there. One was a 9.2 gram nugget. We rode up to the Twin Rivers Campground, but then went to a different spot on a brook about ten miles from there to do some mossing and to see what the XP Deus had to say about the situation. That's when I found that half gram nugget.

    This is mossing, but check with local rules first -- it may not be legal everywhere:

    I guess rule #1 is don't get caught. How can destroying vegetation along stream banks be legal anywhere? Our GPAA group in MA lost the use of a nice panning stream due to digging in the bank and causing a tree to fall. The owner heavily posted both sides. So little gain, lost so much.

    Mossing not legal in the White mountain National Forest. Also all the new rules in Maine are do to digging in the banks. A scenic river in Maine pretty much destroyed. Another a logging road was washed out. I know thats were a lot of gold is. But unless its on your own land. Respect others. Keep prospecting alive. I know its very temping.
