shep Posted March 18, 2007 Report Share Posted March 18, 2007 Got a chance to try out your pick today. Didn't have a long time to think before getting to use it (a day) about how light it was and how it probably wouldn't hold up. Looking at it, probably wouldn't move that much material, but had to give it a try.Now ground was still a bit moist, but there are rocks that still have to be pried out to find the target.Worked excellent for me! I'm a Happy dog!We hit a "new area" and it worked to all my expectations. Doesn't seem to like big gold yet, but what the hay! 5 pieces= 6.1 dwt!Only 2 b------ about it. First it's not very photogenic (sp?) that's why I had to include a pic of the nuggets on the 14"E NF mono coil. and on the way out it was a bit too short to use as a walking stick (my fault lack of communications) so I flicked it on my belt. Anyway, I cut down to the trail a bit too soon, got into the motherload of poison oak (detecting on the way, mind you); but a good target again (when I finally found the trail), went for the pick and it was gone. Backtracked thru the P.O., finally found the pick. Red handle didn't help as I thought it would, sun caught the blade sticking up just right and we're Happy again!Nuggets soaking in soapy water and I've run thru my first wash w/ Technu (love that stuff!)
