    Not a CSA belt buckle BUT!!

    I don't think I've posted a find here before. I got these two pieces last week. after cleaning up the bigger one I figured I should share.
    Found with my GB pro.
    I spend the majority of my time here in the prospecting section down in the basement. I know not everyone comes down there to see our shenanigans.
    Couple of nice ones

    I did use some acid on the larger on so the gold would "pop"

    Wow, that's nice. Sure wish I had a place nearby for gold hunting. The closest I get is watching "Gold Rush." lol I would be chipping out more rock there, maybe a huge vein of gold is nearby.

    Beautiful, two pieces in such a small area might suggest more are lying about ? or someone lost / hid them there.
    Hope you get a banner, I could look at that for awhile.

    I voted.
    This type of thing was one of the reasons I got into metal detecting, but no gold in my county, so I haven't spent any time looking for gold with a detector. This year I am going to.
