FRIEND'S NEW MINELAB FIND


Recommended Posts

  • Admin

Hello All,

A friend sent this picture over last night. This is a new find he found awhile back with a Minelab Metal Detector. He used a bit of acid to expose the gold. The piece was orginally covered with quartz, but screamed on a detector. Can't really give any more details on the find besides it's a good hit!

P.S. Yes, it's Arizona desert gold.

Take care,

Rob Allison

Did you let him know that you had a Birthday? Did you tell him that its best to give than to receive?

Did you tell him thats the most WILD ASS nugget you seen in a long time and don't forget I'm your best friend?

That is one beautiful nugget and its exciting to hear of people making finds like that.

Hello Guys,

The nice specimen/nugget was found with a Minelab GP3500. I believe he was using a small Minelab 8-inch round coil. This friend loves very small coils and will even hunt huge open areas with them.

The piece has been etched with HF acid. The piece was originally just a huge chunk of quartz and gold showing from just one side.

That would have been one hell of a Birthday gift! :rolleyes:

Take care,

Rob Allison
