Followup from 1oz accidental gold nugget find

Post by golddiggerdave on Wed 16 Jan 2013, 6:08 am

Hi All,

I had previously posted about an accidental 1oz gold nugget found with a Minelab CTX 3030 that one of our staff members found. He went back to the area the following weekend where the 1oz was found with his GPX 5000 and here is what he found below. There's a great video below too which shows him picking up the signal and discovering a great speci.

"Going back to the site where I found the 1oz gold nugget with my Minelab CTX 3030, I took out my Minelab GPX 5000 to see if I could pick up some more gold nuggets.

I spent most of the morning digging junk targets but did manage 15 small pieces. In total for the half day I found 8 grams of gold, including a nice 4 grammer.

I also found a great Californian gold rush belt buckle from around the late 1840?s period. It was found about a foot deep in old gold workings. There is so many targets still to dig in this site i anticipate months of digging ahead.

Below are images of some of the finds for the day."
