17 Gram Nugget with the GPX 5000

While detecting in Arizona with my GPX 5000 I heard a faint signal on a small basalt boulder due to the iron content in it. The signal was much stronger on one end of it. I took a few swipes with my pick about 3 inches from it and pulled out a1/2+ ounce nugget!

Thanks Minelab for a fantastic detector and a great hobby!
