First nugget for brother

Post by snapper on Mon 28 Jul 2014, 5:51 pm

G,day, well my brother hired a GPX 5000 for the weekend and I took him to an area that I havn't been to before.
After and hour his 11" coil was making all sorts of sounds and I couldn't get it quiet so took the coil off and put my 11" minelab coil on for him, it made a huge difference.
No gold so we had some lunch and hit a new spot further up the track, within 10 minutes after lunch I watched from a distance him digging a target and then seen this huge smile on his face, first day out detecting and he struck gold, I can't remember how long it took for me to find my first nugget but it sure wasn't the first day.
I told him to stay in that area as it might not have seen a detector before as the gold would have been found by most detectors and before long had 3 nuggets in his tin.
Below; a very happy brother with his first nugget which was in some conglomerate and once freed it weighed .93.
Total weight of his 3 nuggets was 1.55 grams.

Well Done, nice to see a smile, it took me a long time before I got my first nugget, and I worked in an area there was gold, my son was finding gold there, and all I got was junk... Sad 

But gold is gold, no matter how small amount, it beats coming home without a rattle in the bottle...

Good on ya mate..

younger brother by the looks stu    just kidding mate.
it's awesome to see that smile when they pull there 1st one out off the ground, my bro must of pulled a wheel barrow out junk before he got his 1st, and now he just hassles me when can we go again lol.
might squeeze a quick trip this weekend out east from Perth, a bloke says he pulled 37.8g's off a lease 2 weeks ago, 1st time detecting ever,using a goldbug pro and in 2 days, sounds like a load off shite and told him so, anyhow he organised permission for me to enter the lease and said try it 4 yourself and then tell me I'm full off it.oh did I mention this lease is 1.5k's from a major town on the great eastern highway
sounds like a challenge, one that may be to good to refuse.
cheers
