Going back to the site where I found the 1oz gold nugget with my Minelab CTX 3030, I took out my Minelab GPX 5000 to see if I could pick up some more gold nuggets.
I spent most of the morning digging junk targets but did manage 15 small pieces. In total for the half day I found 8 grams of gold, including a nice 4 grammer.
I also found a great Californian gold rush belt buckle from around the late 1840?s period. It was found about a foot deep in old gold workings. There is so many targets still to dig in this site i anticipate months of digging ahead.
Below are images of some of the finds for the day.
