Bedrock nugget 3-1/2 gram

Recommended Posts

I had started my morning hunt in a new location. I was in draw on a tree covered hillside that the ole timers had worked with toms and ground sluicing. Great place to look for some yeller! I started on a cut bank next to a few hand stacked rock piles.. nothing but boot tacks and bits of wire. I looked across the small creek to a promising spot on the other side. Dropped my backpack. And started rock hopping across the creek. For what ever reason.. I had my detector at my side, usually it’s shoulderd..as I stepped from one rock to another my detector let out a nice mellow weeeewoooo...strange how some nuggets are found purely on accident. I’m so impressed that my detector picked up that target in 6” of water and my coil wasn’t breaking the surface. That 3-1/2 grammar was wedged down in a crack, took me a bit to get the bedrock to bust apart!! Man I love the hunt!!!

thanks for sharing your story...I could picture it...but yes, strange it is the mysteries of a prospector. I am beginning to think we all have a  leprechaun tailing us on our hunts sometimes dropping nuggets for us to find and sometimes making us go home with nothing.

good story.  I love to hear the accidental finds.  LOL.  And people say gold is not magnetic.  Bull...  if it wants you ... it'll pull you in.  That beauty wanted you to take it home.  Kudos to you for listening.
