Finding Gold with the SDC 2300

I got out and did a little more prospecting with the SDC 2300, and got 3 more nuggets, total weight 2.5 grams. The more I use this detector the happier I am with it and its finding good gold for me. I took my brother in law out with me and with the external speaker gave him a few lessons in nugget detecting. There were a bunch of old 22 caliper brass shells at this one place, and I told him we needed to get these out of the way because they would shield us from hearing any smaller targets. Sure enough, we got them out of the way, and right in the middle of where they were was a fainter target. I told him that while larger nuggets would sound like those brass shells near the surface, most gold would sound like this fainter target. We dug it and it was the smallest of the three nuggets shown in the photo.
