I showed Wayne the area where that gold was found and left him to it. My first signal at this location got me my first piece. My second piece was found a while later. Unfortunately Wayne battled hot ground where he was. The detector really gave a good signal but when the dirt was removed and broken up, there was nothing.
The 2 pieces weighed a massive 0.08 gram and 0.04 grams.
The 0.08 gram piece was just a “that sounds strange” signal. Once I removed the leaf litter it brightened up considerably. It was only about 5mm in the ground. The other piece must have been just under the dirt or right on top.
Wayne has only had his detector for about a month and he was using the Nugget Finder 12” mono coil.
We gave I a bit of a test with the 0.08 gram nugget inside the bottle and it just picked it up. Then we tried it on the ground and the nugget gave a very good signal. These tiny pieces are almost on the surface and so his detector shouldn’t have any problem locating them.
Good luck out there.

I've found a few tiddlers that need putting up on this forum myself, but not till I go over this area of ground a couple more times.
