A local prospector and BendigoGold customer called into the store to show us some great gold nugget finds he had found in a spot at the base of a hill.
He was propecting with his partner and they were using a Minelab GPX 4000 and a Minelab Extreme metal detector. The GPX 4000 was using an 11DD coil and the Extreme had a 14″ Mono coil.
In total 13 nuggets were found within about 150 metres of each other at the base of a slope weighing a total of 26.2 grams.
The largest nugget was 5.5 grams found in hard ground aproximately 1 foot down.
