:) That is some great looking gold! My prospecting buddy from Chilliack find mostly 100 mesh or flour gold. Nothing bigger than a match head. I would say you got a great spot there! For a detector get the best that you can afford. Some thing to considered is the ground mineralization, and the size of the gold in your area. They are a lot of good informations on all the gold prospecting, nugget shooting forums. For small gold you need a detector that is mainly made for prospecting gold... yes there are a few relic/coin detectors that will find gold nuggets, and some gold detector that can find coins and relics. Most of the detectors that are made specifically to find gold can ground balance better, and handle hot, or mineralized ground better. If you can, join a club or try to meet and get out with somebody that have, that do get out and use a detector. Ask questions and more questions, try to "test drive" a detector before separating with your money, and don't overlook the used markets,or the classify "for sale" sections on these gold forums.Welcome, and good luck.

More Au to you, Robert
