    A glittering prize from Battery Hill

    Hi all been spending my hunting time still on the side of Battery hill near some of the old hard rock mines. After spending the first few trips clearing all targets in the clay, i decided the area was clear enough to change the settings on my GPX to deep search. Turned the Gain to max 15 and turned target volume and threshhold right up. Turned the stablizer right down to reduce excess noise.Moved really slowly over ground all ready covered. Took me hours to find a couple of targets.One being a old hand saw stud and the second a piece of saddle reef quartz full of veins of gold. In good judgement i think theres over 25 grams of gold in the quartz .later today i will be heading back out.

    Every target has a story. Some are more complex than others!

    Hope you find more gold on this place.
