Default The nuggets I found

Just to add on to my find. Here are the nuggets after sluicing the dirt. Luckily, my buddy has panning and sluicing skills! Thanks AK! He spent all day helping me! Learned a ton too!

I don’t know yet. I still have more buckets to sluice. It is going slow because it is all in clay dirt and we have a small sluice

Kilbreath85 and I sluiced some more yesterday. Got a few more nuggets, flake, and dust. It’s hard work since it is in clay. 3 hours for 2-10 gallon buckets . Still waiting to see a gold coin in the classifier. Good news is I have a hot water spigot. Lots of jealous miner ghosts watching my operation .

Man, I know that'll be worth some $$$$ in gold value if you turned the nuggets in, but it would almost make for a great display, the nuggets beside the coins..... Too cool!!!!

These will be a family heirloom. I will live in eternity until some ungrateful jerk down the line dumps it all in a CoinStar!

Keep on Enjoying and Digging but don't work too hard. To me there is no feeling like taking gold from the ground or even seeing others doing well is a Joy. Best Regards.
