    Killer gold, great job. Rare to take home that much gold in a day.
  2. That is a cool one I watched the whole thing. They were definitely out there doing the real thing.
  3. Some gold would be nice too..

    Really cool book. The other older one on Rich Hill is great too.
  6. Here's a toad!

    That’s another beauty. Bet that has a nice heft in your hand.

    Holy crap lucky you! Biggest I’ve found there is 5 grams so far.

    Holy crap, nice one!
  9. Yeah good stuff around that lake right... 😎 Thanks for the comments everyone. I found a nice 3.5 gram nugget just above these two about two years ago and the wash below is gold-bearing too if you can wade through all the trash. Lots of nooks and crannies I still need to check.
  10. Hit an area I've been detecting for a few years in southern Arizona over the weekend. I've found some nice gold there in the past but it's been about 2 years since I've found anything new there. Found these two in a dirt slide that was eroding down from some hillside placers down into a big wash. Never really hunted a steep hillside like that before but I was in the mood to 'think outside the box' this weekend. First nugget I found was the one on top. Mostly a small gold/quartz pebble. It was sitting right on the surface. Then about 3 feet away the bottom nugget was down a little deeper in the red clay. This nugget is solid gold. I knew it was a nugget as soon as I swung my coil over it. Nice mellow sound we all love. Total weight is 1.86 grams.
