I'm surprised at how much gold they're still finding over there. Most of the triangle has been flogged to death since the mid 1850's.


Detectors: CTX 3030, X-Terra70, Pro-Find 25 Oldest Coin: 1866 English Penny
2018 totals: $1780.51AUD (637x$2, 337x$1, 101x50c, 273x20c, 337x10c, 463x5c, 329x2c, 498x1c) and 208 foreign, collectable or older Australian/English (pre-decimal) coins.

Bonzer Nugget and nice Live Dig Vid! I'd be blathering like a buggered bandicoot!


Detecting is the study of Mankinds interaction with topography, the untrustworthiness of pockets, and metals desire to return to the Earth from whence it came.
