Social Distancing = Gold Placering for Nuggets


Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

   Hope everyone's Health is well with this virus still holding on out there.  A friend and I have been doing a little bit of placering in a wash bottom for gold nuggets.  We happen to hit a crack that had like 4 gold nuggets, biggest one was 6.0 Dwt's, just over 1/4 ounce.  The other nuggets were about 1/2 to 1 Dwt each.  

I shot a short video of us recovering the larger piece of gold.  Video below -

Hey Beatup,

   Just over a 1/4 ounce, as it was 6.0 Dwt's, and 5 Dwt's is 1/4, 10 Dwt's for 1/2 ounce.  Maybe you thought the scale said Grams and that would be just under 1/4.  Hope all is well.

That is one beautiful nugget.  Rob just curios, are you in the deepest section of that wash or how does one decide to take a certain section?  A friend of mine found 10 grams between 3 nuggets in about a 50 ft section of a 400 foot wash.  We are preparing to placer it in a few weeks.

thanks!
