What Will You Find?

Good Start to the Month

After last month finding an once with the GPX 5000 I had started this month (May) of in a good way. I found a little run of gold wich had a 4 gram nugget mixed in with them. In 3 days I had picked up over 11 grams wich I was pretty happy about.

I had the chance to go out for a day during the week for a detect wich I don't realy get the chance to do. I was detecting for 3 hours and I was walking up the hill side and my ankle had let go. I was in a bit of pain and thinking I might as well go home.

I took few steps and had a loud signal. I took the top of the ground away thinking it was going to be a 22 shell. I dug down to about 30cm and the target was out, I looked down and their it was a 16.3 gram nugget. I called it a day as my ankle was way to sore but I was happy enough with the find.
