Now I am bit

Post by shakergt on Thu 15 Jun 2017, 8:23 pm

Yay found my first ever bit of gold. It was only .5 of a gram but it's a start. Now I have the bug. It must have been my lucky day as I did a good grid of the area I found it with no results. Only found previous dig holes from other prospectors. Must have been a bit that got missed.

We all started, like this and the "gold fever" only got better.
Good luck, you have your first now you are on a roll.

That first piece is a magical bit and will live with you for the rest of your detecting days.Once you become accustomed to your machine the rest of the bits will follow.

nice to find the first bit, you never forget it. I'm sure more will follow now shakergt, just make sure you take your time to thoroughly cover the ground your on, better to do a small area well than to rush around covering many KM's and miss the target that leads to a great patch. low and slow always.
cheers
