C'mon Frank. Let's hear the story. You don't have to post the coordinates.

Seriously. That specie looks better every time I see it.

Hey Frank,

Awesome piece of gold you found there. Over the years Quartzsite and produced some biggies, specimens and solid nuggets. Hope you're able to score a few more in the area before it plays out.

Keep us updated,

Rob Allison

Hey Unc, they're ALL pounded ain't they ???

Hit it in a wash, thought it was gonna be another rusty can or piece of metal.

Interesting signal at first, then after moving 3 good sized rocks from digging the hole the signal turned to aawww f#$% another large trash piece

(overload) at about 7-8 inches. Then I kept digging I was using the Ol Turdy-5-hundred with a 16" NF SL mono (love that analog) and even though

I cut a good sized hole I couldn't be quite sure exactly where the signal was from with the large diameter coil on.

So I called up the hill from where I was for Glenn and Mike to come down Glenn had a 5000 with the new 6x8NF coil on it so that was perfect for getting

a direction on the dig.

Once I got that I started digging deeper in that direction at about 12-14 inches I started taking big scoopfulls 1 at a time out and waving it over

Glenns coil

waiting for him to say signal or not. Then 1 scoop had the target and I dumped some into 1 hand and it was still in the scoop,

then I picked out this good sized rock out of the scoop and just before I waved it over his coil I looked at him an said Tell me you don't have a signal anymore thats what he said NO SIGNAL !!

WOWSA WOWSA, in my brain I knew I had something good then in my left hand a dirty rock that gave an overload,brushed it once with the other hand an saw a glint of color, thats all it took popped that baby in my big mouth and it came out a muddy hunk of gold an quartz.

Then the dancin started ,... I looked like the ol timer in Bogarts "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" jumpin an praisin Mother Earth !!!!
