Spotted it before it entered suction nozzle, or it would probably rolled right on through due to amount of quartz. Second pic - after spotting a 2 dwt "baker" lodged in a large vertical pressure
    crevice, we spent a month trying to reach bedrock. Water was 2 feet deep, then 8 feet of large loose cobbles and boulders up to a thousand lbs. When
    we finally hit bedrock there was the gold, laying in a little trough parallel with the current. it took about 3 days to advance a foot on bedrock due to big and unstable boulders trying to slide into the hole. The gold ran out in ten feet but it was sure fun while it lasted! Pic is a portion of my share.
    Nice stuff .

    Hoser yer a tough act to follow but I'll give it my best here.
    After just about 5 years of detecting in the great state of Arizona I got "lucky" and swung my minelab over this 2.49 ounce beauty. It holds just under 2 ozs. of ol yeller in it.
    When I first got it out of the earth from about 16 to 18 inches deep it was covered with dirt an not recognizable until I caught a glimpse of yeller on it then I popped it in my mouth because I didn't have any water with me to clean it off an get a better look at it. Well it looked like an upper denture with 2 vampire fangs so we aptly named it the Vampire Nugget.
    Hope yall enjoy the pics as much as I do.
    Hapy Huntn everyone.

    Finding GOLD
    Hoser

    Please feel free to show as many of those pics as you care to, it serves as a inspiration to what can be found with hard work, know how, and dogged determination. PS..... Nice piece Frank, very unusual shape. My son won this nugget in a raffle and we call it the Miami Dolphins nuggett.

    Prospecting
    This is my only sluice find so far, I loaned my Bazooka out to the local mine shop to test out to see if they want to carry them.
    I only used it once with 1 bucket full.

    One bucket full from cleaning out a couple deep cracks and a chunk of dead grass that was growing in it, reduced nicely.




    Here is my best single sniping find except for my nugget.



    My nugget is at the end of this video. I found this on my 2nd day.




    So much fun.
