  1. Well jeez Rob, once you compared the two specimens I knew right away where the big one came from 😄 It's awesome to see the exposed gold in the smaller piece. Shows you exactly where nuggets come from. Weather out of veins and continue eroding away until they're dust.
  2. Dang makes me not wanna sell my GPZ. No takers yet, it's still for sale. Too bad I could use the cash. Just so damn hard for me to find good areas to hunt. Would have to get back into it hard and spend a lot of time hunting for new areas that I just don't seem to have anymore. Maybe when I'm old and retired 😀
  3. Sounds like some good times. Cool you got the kids into detecting.
  4. Up for sale is a Minelab GPZ 7000 gold detector. Comes complete with all the factory accessories and packaging. Nothing was tossed out.

    Blind leading the blind...? Real gold is the $$ from the commercials.

    Glad to hear he’s doing better. That’s a really scary thing to go through. Hopefully he gets stronger and stronger and makes a good recovery soon.
  7. That'd be a lot of photos!
  8. Wow congrats! I was sad to see a big 4.75 ounce Quijotoa nugget sold at the gem show this year too. Always loved seeing it there, was always too rich for my blood.
  9. Bet it would go quick at the gem show!
  10. A one pound nugget, that was missed by a GPX and just a warble on a GPZ, must have been at some serious depth. Even on end in a crack, because of it’s mass, it had to have been deep to have been just a slight warble.
  11. That's amazing Rob, I'm really happy for you. This will go down in history as one of the monster Arizona nuggets like your other big one did for many of us. What a great feeling to be able to share it with a friend, that's really the best part of the story. Congratulations and thanks for sharing it with all of us. The photos and videos will be marveled at for years.

    Killer gold, great job. Rare to take home that much gold in a day.
