Some New Ngget Additions to the Collection

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Here are a few more gold nuggets I've found over the last week or so. It's been so freaking hot and humid out there lately. All of these gold nuggets were found with the Minelab GPX-4500 metal detector and Coiltek Goldstalker 14-inch Lightweight Elliptical Searchcoil. These nuggets were found anywhere from a couple of inches down to 10 inches or so.

It looks easy when someone posts a bunch of gold nuggets, but I don't want to make it sound easy. For the most part you really have to understand your detector, spend many hours searching and hope you're also blessed with a little bit of luck.

Take care,

Rob Allison

Way to go on the gold nuggets! How much is the weight of them? That 14" eleiptical is the best coil I have ever used. I have found hundreds of gold nuggets with mine in the one year since I got it from you. Those are some beauties for sure. Congradulations!

Hey Guys,

Thanks for the comments.

Mike C - We do have one of those, but these are not from that deal. :D

Matt - Ya, that 14-inch Goldstalker is a killer coil. The total weight on this group is 1/2 ounce.

Uncle Ron - Yes, this is a Mountain area.

Take care,

Rob Allison

That must have been fun, good going Rob those nuggets look very nice ! Post pictures of them all cleaned up? Hey since it is July 4th, I got this email and thought it was good. It doesn't have anything to do with metal detecting for gold nuggets though.

Subject: Did you know this part of 4th of July history?

4TH OF JULY Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed

the Declaration of Independence ?

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before

they died.

Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons serving in

the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured.

Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary


They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred


What kind of men were they?

Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, nine were

farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated, but they

signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty

would be death if they were captured.

Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his Ships

swept from the seas by the British Navy.

He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.

Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his

family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his

family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty

was his reward.

Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton,

Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.

At the battle of Yorktown , Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British

General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. He

quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was

destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.

Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his

wife, and she died within a few months.

John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she was dying. Their 13

children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to

waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home

to find his wife dead and his children vanished. Some of us take these

liberties so much for granted, but we shouldn't. So, take a few minutes

while enjoying your 4th of July holiday and silently thank these patriots.

It's not much to ask for the price they paid.

Remember: freedom is never free!

I hope you will show your support by sending this to as many people as you

can, please. It's time we get the word out that patriotism is NOT a sin,

and the Fourth of July has more to it than beer, picnics, and baseball.
