You have to find a small pocket. It may be closed off for several years again. This spot quit producing back in 2012 and was open for a short bit

Frankly, with a haul like that, I wouldn't blame you for answering questions with, "Oh, I found them on the Pacific Ocean beach in Ohio."

🤔 Not sure I want to know either.

Nice hunts Itsa. Somehow I get the feeling you were double dipping.

I know you been there. Cremains is when after they cremate someone and a person sprinkles them on the beach, any gold used for teeth or even jewelry left on melts and turns into a nugget. I don't keep cremation tags. But look at it like if the deceased want to gift me some gold i won't refuse.

That is a fact! Thanks Tom!

In the battle of Thermopylae the Persian Armies demanded that the Greeks surrender their weapons. King Leonidas responded saying "Molon Labe." Translation "Come and get it".

Outstanding finds Larry. I have the same problem with snow birds following use here. I've driven to another local beach and had then get out of the car beside me. Once I got back in the car and drove about a mile south and while I was detecting they showed up and came down and ask if I had found anything yet. I told them I'd found two guys that were pressing my Psd off button. They don't speak anymore, I wonder why? If I'm lucky enough to find something I usually don't show it and I'm almost to the point I don't post it. Congrats on the CTX love and I bet you have to deal with Kap's depression. I know the gold Queen is not used to coming in second. Happy hunting Buddy.
