MXT Finds a 10oz Brick of Silver

A few weeks ago my buddy Dave and I went to a local park in Puyallup, WA with our DFX’s to do some detecting and after a couple of hours and very little to show for it, we called it quits. Today (Oct 22nd) another friend, Rich (he has an MXT) called me up and asked me to go to the same park and work it.

At first I thought Na....been there done that, but as anyone who has the bug knows, I went. We went to an area in the park that in my mind would be less productive and started swinging. Long story short I found more coins in 20 minutes than I did in the two hours previous, but my buddy Rich….well he found a 10 ounce brick of pure silver. Moral of the story; if you don’t look you don’t find.
