A bit of metal detecting and some gold


Recommended Posts

  • Admin

Hello All,

After a weekend of field instructions, I need a little bit of time on my own to swing the GPX5000. I found a couple interesting relics, one being an old tape measure and the second being a Old English Tobacco container. The date on the back of the Tobacco container says, "made in USA, 1890." :o Both of these items were found within some old placer workings besides the pick tips, boot tacks, wire and other iron rubbish that you normally find.

I also ended up with a few nuggets too boot for the weekend.

Take care,

Rob Allison
