Went out last eve,put on the 17" NF thought it would be good practice for my trip over next week.IT worked got to dig some deep targets.luv to dig those deeep holes,Dug one well over a meter,pulled out a 11+ kilo and a 4 kilo copper i beleave wont really know till i clean and test them.I find copper & silver in same ore.All be it the silver is more rare.IT was a good work out.think I'm ready for some gold digging on the Quad bike tour.SWING TILL IT SCREAMS THEN DIG>>>KELLY   here's a before and after of the one in my hand when I'm standing behind the truck.9.3oz slug of copper,cleaned in lime away.

Pilbarachad I did find about a egg sized speci once near stanton AZ known for big gold,had a week or faint signal.Was using a gold bug detecter,when i crushed the rock i got 1.5 grains that is the only gold to date with my detecters. The guy with me found four that week a 2.5oz speci with lots of spider web viens running around white qaurtz beauteful,2 -1.5 grammers and a big speci with about a fingernail size gold showing on the corner.In the area a 26 oz was found the week befor we were there.SWING ON AND GOOD LUCK>>KELLY
