    Had a great time seeing old friends and making new ones and kudos to Jack and Lisa for hosting another great outing. As always lots to learn and had a blast helping folks learn to better use their metal detectors with Kevin Hoagland. I even managed to get out to do some gold nugget shooting for a couple hours on Friday and Saturday! Got these 2 Friday

    And got one more Saturday and below is a pick of all 3 cleaned up some...

     

    Always enjoy the LDMA and GPAA outings and being able to help others learn to find nuggets as well!

     

    Good hunting, Bill

    Likewise Andrew and hope to see you again soon. We will be doing a free outing at Gold Basin in November on the weekend of the 6th ton 8th 2015 and I will post info here as well as at my forum and Face Book This outing is held to get detectors operators together for free advise and fun and we have done one here since 2001 every year.

    Hey Bill,

    Great finds. Anytime you can score at Rich Hill is good. The area has been hit hard, but with the help with new technology of the GPZ 7000 and good users, gold nuggets will be found!

    True that Rob,

    Pick an area, hunt slow and keep that coil to the ground, and dig all targets! I had found gold in this old patch before so I was working very slowly and got a deep low/high signal on the GPZ 7000 after removing 8 to ten inches of dirt I hit the red clay layer and the signal flipped to high/low. Hoped it would be gold then since in the undisturbed red clay and it was at about 14 inches or better deep.

     

    Good hunting, Bill

    Bill,

     Did your machine go "Mellow Mellow"?

    It sure did Greg, funny how after using detectors so long your ear will get tuned to certain subtle differences between iron, lead, gold and other metals. Still must dig all targets, but it is fun trying to guess. Oh and unfortunately lead will sound very similar
