rexb Posted May 30, 2007 Report Share Posted May 30, 2007 I got back last night, well, early this morning, from a trip to Northern Nevada. Luckily, I managed to snag a couple stray nuggets. The larger one is 1.12 grams and the smaller 0.51 grams. One photo shows the pair wet and the other dry. The smaller nugget was maybe about four inches deep and the larger around six or so.If youâ€™ve been to Rye Patch youâ€™ll recognize the scene below from the familiar base camp that everyone goes to in that area. Majuba Mountain is in the distance on the horizon at sunset. There were probably about twenty-five or so people out there shooting for gold this past weekend. I saw one guy even find an obsidian arrowhead. Near camp there was an area where a youngster had collected some quartz crystals.He showed me the spot and I dug out some dirt for us to sift through. These are some of the better crystals from that area as well as some found on the surface while detecting. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
