Goodness Rich, that is small. Gotta have confidence you can locate them now. When i tried it all id find were the tiny square nails (mot much bigger than brads) and lead bits.

Well done. I'm sure there is a clanker waiting for you out there! Glad you got out and exorcised the cabin fever!

zincoln,

It is tiny at 1.2 grains. In comparison, the two shotgun pellets are 2.2 grains each. Finding those two lead pellets really did instill some confidence that my detector / coil and settings would find 'pickers' and bigger if I came across them. And despite the tiny size, the little nugget gives a good clank when dropped into a glass vial or into the green plastic scoop. The density of gold is pretty amazing.

I have a lifetime of geology to learn, but it is a lot of fun. Looking forward to a trip out kickindirts direction before it gets too hot. And maybe another visit back to AZ.

Hope you can make it. . .

Proof that sometimes a tiny thing can bring a big smile.
