Thanks TG/Ian.  Yes it has been some time, I'm plagued with one to many family commitments at the moment. Just in case some people on here might be thinking I'm hitting areas of private ground, I can assure all here, I aint. All these bits of colour, were found on/over flogged to death crown land. The trick here is to pick an area carefully (where one thinks or believes good gold might have come out from in the past) & go low & slow, working the ground methodically, listening for the faintest break in threshold response.  
I get a good laugh when I see someone swinging a coil faster than Speedy Gonzales can run, whilst moving over ground like a whirly whirly. Shocked Q35

Thanks Camohunter/deutran. The largest bit of colour found, (on the shallow bank by the side of a 3 foot boulder) gave a faint signal. It was sitting in a clay, 13 inches down.  A further 18 inches down, 2/3 feet away, in a shallow, narrow, worked feeder, could be seen slate/bedrock.  
I can only conclude & ask myself, what else could be sitting in the ground between where the nugget was found & the bedrock bellow that we're not hearing?
This is why I say, the only thing thrashed to death, is not the ground that gives us no further signal responses, but the limits of our detectors depths.

Thanks Harry. Picked up within the first 5 minutes of switching the detector on. The only other target response was a part rusted old nail further up for the whole 3 hrs of ground time spent. This tells ya that the locality has had the eyes picked out of it. Clean of all junk targets. Shocked

Hi Con congrats on your great finds.
Talking about low and slow and flogged out areas,using the 2300 det I always get small lead shot, and the same day I got a signal that was less noticeable than the tiny lead shot I was finding.
Almost left it but decided to re ckeck again ,and  got the same tiny signal again, and low and behold, I scored a .03 grammer now thats a tiddler.
Now that was hard to find as well, as yours,so any time you want to swap, let me know:lol!:

0.03 grammer Shocked Nah, there's no way known I can compete with that size slug of gold hapalogh. The smallest in that picture weighed in at 0.4 gm. Although we shouldn't be by-passing &/or leaving behind any loud signal we come across, without seeing what the target is, it's those very faint signal responses  we should pay careful attention to. A faint signal in the ground (less a pocket or section of highly meneralized ground) can only be one of 2 things, a very small target closer to the surface, or like in my case (& on/over the 4 larger nuggets found), a larger target deeper down bellow, just within detector/coil reach.

Thanks Pete. I know see what you mean (with the forehead, eyes, nose & chin looking up to the heavens). I'm always in awe when through orientation of any nugget, tends to take the shape of some some other living creature. My luck can't keep going on like this forever. I'm bound to switching back to finding the real tiddlers soon. Shocked Q35

G'day fellow prospectors

Just when I thought it was all over, netted this 19gm bit of gold, in heavily worked/thrashed ground a couple of days ago & only now after an ultrasonic bath, posted it up. Considering it gave a good clear signal, & was only a measured 11 inches down, embedded in clay in amongst slate, I cannot understand how anyone could have missed it. My first bit of gold for the new year & it had to be the biggest bit so far? Shocked
Nightjar, I think you're on the right track about the hoarding a gram or three part.
