    Looks like a great day to me! Good work, trash likes to hide the gold!

    Sweet finds, and thanks for the little story to go with the picture, enjoyed it.

    All the best,

ID:	1697058. i think this may be the last for this location, but what a way to finish it off. 7 grams. i clued a friend in on the location. it will be a good test to see how good the zed really is.

    for those wanting to know the results of the zed...... 1 nugget was found, about .6-.7 gram. looks like the 45 can hold its own.
