Default Warm Weather, Coins, Gold, Bling. Been A Good Week!




I managed 3 hunts in some of my favorite spots. Lots of coins to be found. I love those one and two dollar coins, as they really bump up the totals.




Here's some bling I dug. I also got a token.




On my gold prospecting hunts, I dug some nice looking petrified wood and a piece of coprolite




There must have been some fairly large turds in places many years ago.




And, my gold! About 4 hours worth. I shoveled about 6" of gravel off a gravel bar, about 60' x 12' which took about 10 hours.

First of all, very nice finds! But I am just curious, but about how much is the gold worth?

Thanks! It's the hunt, the adventure, the finds, the story and the photography which makes up the adventures. We all have great stories to tell.

I am guessing I have about a gram of gold. Our gold is about 97-98% pure, which makes a gram at today's price about $40.00 US.

A couple of years left, and I will probably retire. Can't wait!
