Nice 8 ounce Speci found

Post by AuWanderer on Sun 05 Jun 2016, 8:23 am

Here is a nice 8 ounce speci I found about 18 inches down. It sounded like any other deep target, soft and mellow...thought it was trash iron, but noticed the yellow sticking out from the dirt and knew I had something good. I stuck it in some Whink for a day and this is what it looks like for now. I am hoping to give it a true acid bath..one day. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Viper,

Your probably right, I think its pretty cool as it is now. Shows enough gold in its natural form, could always do a SG test and see the amount inside and sell it as is if I chose to sell one day. I sure did the shuffle... Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy and the first word I said is DAMN !! I just don't find pieces this large often. Its out there....maybe harder to find...but its there.

Thank you fellas............me thinks its time for a mini excavator...and do some pushing. Need to get closer to bedrock as the overburden is deep in most areas....I am hoping most of the gold is down deeper. The ole timers couldn't of hit every square inch with their picks and shovels.
