Only out for about an hour with my CTX 3030 when my scoop handle broke.

But I hit Gold !!

Nice find!

I'd be less than happy if I broke my handle after only an hour, but thrilled with finding gold.

Oh the emotional rollercoaster! LOL........

Congrats on the Gold! That stinks about the scoop handle, is it easily and inexpensively repairable?

It's a aluminum handle. I will cut of the broken piece and drill a new hole.
If it breaks again. I will buy a carbon fiber handle.

Did you break it digging the gold ? Or did you have to hand dig the gold after it broke ? Nice find !

First I found the ring and then a coin.

Right after that the handle just snapped.

I will fix it.
