    153 lbs of Silver.

    Went metal detectecting in the old silver tailings around here and I got a great signal on the F75. It came in at around 67 on the screen. Oh great another piece of tin i thought to myself. Oh well, dig everything because you never know what it might be. After about 35 minutes of digging and having the hole collapse in on me many times I finally saw the target. It was a nice pink coloured rock. That is a good sign since around here a lot of silver has Cobalt in it. That is one of the ways the miners would find silver veins back in the old days. Anyways, after finally digging it out, I couldn't lift it out of the hole. It was too heavy for me. It was also a very deep hole. I had to get a ratchet strap from my truck and pull it out of the hole. It is so heavy that I could hardly carry the thing over the tailings piles and through the bush. I ended up dragging it most of the way with the ratchet strap which finally gave in and broke apart from the abuse. I ended up rolling/carrying it the rest of the way. When I got home I found out the true weight of it. It weighs over 150 lbs. I still have to clean it up. It has cobalt and calcite in it and I estimate it to be at least over 75% silver. I rubbed it up a little bit to show some of the silver. It still has to be cleaned.

    Wow, now that is impressive!!! I sure hope that you follow through and update us all with the final results. Digging that up from within a rockbed had to be a real chore. I hate to admit it, but I do believe I would have given up after getting down 8 or 9 inches without a payoff. My hat is off to you.

    Holy smokes! At today's exchange rates it doesn't need to be gold...especially if your estimate of %75 silver is correct. Nice Job!

    cheers,

    Uh, unless Santa or the Lone Ranger dropped it while going by, isn't there probably more there?
