Finally Something To Post:

Recommended Posts

Got out Saterday with a few friends. Went to an old hydrolic pit mostly just to get out and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air. After walking around for about 4 hours, digging the usual nails, boot tacks, bits of old picks 2 feet deep and lead bullets, I moved a rock of the side of a little bench and there it was, my first nugget of 2007, 1 penny weight even. One of the other guys already had 2 nuggets but they were bigger than mine so I kept on going up the hill to the top, cleared off all of the rocks, about a 5 foot long by 1 foot deep area and gave it a check. The noise from the 2.7 penny weight nugget made think it was a nail but you know the old saying, if you do not see it, you never know what it is. Glad I checked. I called one of my other partners over, he is still in quest of a 1 penny weight or better nugget so he could take over the area and maybe score but all he got was a small match head size nugget. All in all, a great day, 6 nuggets totaling 8.1 penny weight, truly and extrodinary day in an old hydrolic pit.
