Happy Ridge Nuggets


Recommended Posts

Yo All...Spent a few hours gridding the ridge top Monday... Discovered that in areas where shallow red dirt covers caliche, they be nuggies...Got three for a total of 2.4 DWT ... All three were down about 6 to 8 inches embedded in the top of the caliche...Got'em with my 4500 and good ol' 17" Nugget Finder mono fiberglass coil ... Before I cleaned them up all three had a thick layer of caliche on one side ... Together with the larger one I found Saturday, the total comes to 6.5 DWT ... Sure is fun hunting that ridge top ... That 4500 ROCKs once you start getting it figured out ... Only took me a little over a year...Duh...Cheers, Unc
