First Pilbara Piece

Post by WifesNightmare on Mon 02 Feb 2015, 7:22 am

Gday from the newbie.

Just wanted to share my excitement and a few photos of my first ever find.

Found this little beauty 300mm down using a GPX5000 and the DD coil supplied that my wife bought me for Xmas.
If you could have seen the little dance I did when it came out of the hole, you might have wet yourself laughing.

Anyway, I promised the wife that she could have the first nugget that I find and as promised I delivered it to her with great pride.

Since doing a little cleaning of the piece it has dropped a little in weight but looks real pretty now.

Its down to 18.32 grams at the moment after a bit of cleaning. Pretty sure it stay around that weight now as it only has a tiny piece of quartz trapped on one edge.

Congrats on the first piece and what a beauty it is, you must have been rapt. Nothing like a piece that size to keep you keen.
