    My new personal best nugget!

    It finally stopped raining for a day so I got back out to the spot I was at last time. I raked and detected all day with the 15x12 mono coil. I got plenty more targets but all were trash...some deep lead and nails. I gridded the whole area slowly with no more luck. So I decided to go over to the other side of the hill...bam first target was gold! Sweet bright hi-low signal. Easily heard at a foot deep. 6.7 grams Click image for larger version.

    I went back and put in a lot of effort to get more but no luck. Just trash everywhere. I cleaned up a lot of lead and nails. Im not going to say I'm done at this location but sometimes there's only one or two nuggets. Maybe I will try here again when the ground dries up some. On to look for new ground again.
