Hi everyone, Happy New Year.

I got out for my first trip for the year to Castlemaine and managed to pick up 4 small pieces.
It was a fantastic day in the morning with very little wind and sun.

From the top they weighed 0.11 gram, 0.06 gram, 1.2 gram and 0.43 gram.

The 1.2 gram was one I almost walked away from. At first up I was expecting it to be rust given the signal dipped from one side of the coil to the other. The ground was quite hot. I had dug down about 5 inches and then had trouble locating the signal again. I dug one more bit out and the signal was out of the hole but still difficult to locate so I put the detector in “severe” to see if it disappeared due to being mineralization or if the signal was still evident. It was still there so I returned the detector to “difficult” and located the clay lump it was in. Breaking open the clay I was surprised to see the small lump of gold, but rather happy.

A good start to 2021.

May you all find gold in 2021.

Regards Axtyr.
