joined the oz club finally

Post by martinjsto on Sun 24 Sep 2017, 8:12 pm

well after 5 yrs I finally found a nice size nugget of 54grams. she is a real beauty that is already in the hands of the new owner. I have been busy making a cast of it out of lead and slowly coating it with 24k gold leaf to keep as a memento, I figure might as well have the money and a display memento to boot.

cheers

cheers everyone. found it with the 5k and the 14" elite at about 13 inches with a clear stop and dig me signal. the ground is nothing to look at but no rubbish so just about every target is gold.
returning soon so watch this space for updates.
cheers

I called her the Titanic, with the pic in my hand, if you roll your head slightly to the right I can see a broken in half sinking ship with plumes of smoke billowing from the stacks, you can see the windows and front bow relatively easy with a bit of imagination. but thats just me and my wierd aspect on things. Very Happy
