Default * Gold in the Mud *

Big day today,well over 4 hours digging! .. that's a lot for me!

Found a spot at low tide where the mud was hard just under the sand.
Started getting a few sinkers,so I griidded really hard .. result a 9ct band,4.2 grams.

At the next beach, lots of digging, greenies,a 1950 shilling and an old silver ring.

Certainly am,and like a lot of others I put a lot of hours in each week.
Also using my Equinox makes it easier .. I'm able to squeeze in a few more hours with it.

Their you go again, finding more rings. I know them days that are worthless. You just can not get that coil over something good. But look at your load of rings this year. Won't be long you can buy a new truck.
Enjoy your post Meggie.
