Default ** Triple Gold Today **

Nice low tides again this weekend .. I'm not missing out on these.
Found a new cut at the beach today and within 5 minutes I had my first gold,an 18ct band.Checked the same hole again, whats this then? .. yes,another gold band 9ct this time!Also scored a few coins & sinkers too.
Worked the low tide next, and would you believe it another old 9ct signet type ring .. it cleaned up nicely but the stone fell out when cleaning.It appears to be a fake opal stone. Also a nice old heavy silver ring as well.
All in all my best day this year .. another 13 grams of gold for the pot.
Gold count for 2017 now @ 50

3 yellows! With the conditions we've had I'm hoping I can get just one before the year is over.
