    1800's gold rush saloon burned down (GOLD!)

    went back to my favorite spot again.... its an old saloon that burned down 3 times... the last time in 1914... when i go there its easy to get side tracked cuz there is so much stuff in the ground... lots of lead, iron, brass, marbles, buttons, clay pipes, tokens, barbers, seateds, V's, shields, injuns, copper melted globs, bottles, broken bottle "cryers", etc... i mean you cant even really detect because the machine just goes nuts!.... then when you decide to dig a target, you cant help but just keep diggin... and diggin, all kinds of stuff comes poppin out... anyway this time i was focused on one 4 X 8 piece of land... i brought a metal rake and went down around 6"... then took a few swings... got a nickel hit & out popped this 17 gram hunk of melted GOLD!!! as soon as i get a day or 2 off im goin back... i know there's more!

    Nice!
    It's gotta be awfully hard not to blow a day off of work to get back out there. Looking forward to your next batch of finds.
    Good Luck!
