  1. Hello All, Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and an upcoming New Year - 2023. It's been hard to break out prior to Christmas, but managed to sneak out the day after for a hunt. I spent the entire day with the Minelab GPZ 7000 and the NF 12" Round Searchcoil and ended up with a nice handful of gold (small patch or pocket found). Not shown are the 100+ trash targets ranging from boot tacks, wire, can fragments, bullet casing, lead bullets and more. Glory to the Great Lord for allowing me to finish the season with a nice pocket of gold and hopes of a great 2023 prospecting/metal detecting season. 71.70 Dwts of nuggets or 3.58 Troy ounces of gold.
