What Will You Find?

My Biggest Nugget

I was told by my friends to buy the Minelab GPX 5000 machine and I am so happy that I bought my Minelab GPX 5000.

I have been looking for gold in the fields for many years and have never been lucky to find such a large nugget.

This nugget weighs 1.2kgs and was easily found with my GPX 5000.

I would recommend that anybody who is serious about finding gold in Mali should buy a Minelab like I did.
