    1+ Oz gold nugget !! WOW!!

    I posted this in the Today's Finds and was asked to share it over here too!! I thought it might be a good fit here as well!!

    Even though I do detect for gold, on this day, I was using the CTX and relic hunting a gold camp. But I know that the readers on this forum will probably appreciate this find more so than a turf hunter or relic hunter. I have found gold with my GPX5000 but score my biggest with a CTX!! Go Figure!

    What a surprise this was!!

    I got the dig on video if anyone is interested in watching it. I get a bit excited and have a few slips of the tongue!!

    Banner worthy find
    (nomination sent)

    FYI I noticed that your scale is set to: oz.
    Gold is bought and sold using ozt which is the troy weight
    So the weight of your nugget in ozt. would actually be referred to as 1.2760t oz or 25.52 dwt (pennyweight) by the prospecting community.
    Either way It's still a 1oz + nugget!

    GG~

    That was an amazing video guys, congrats on all of your silvers too!
    You didn't use half the amount of swear words I would've used if I'd found that beauty!

    Most definitely "the find of a life time"!!!

    awesome dig and nice seated coins to boot
    Never be scared to ask Permission, the worst thing that can happen is a "No", but usually it's a "Yes".
