Hello All,

Managed to turn this specimen up on some old ground this weekend. The piece was just a whisper of a target, probably a good 20-inch or deeper. Was surprise it turned up to be a specimen, weighing 2 ounces, but probably only has 1/4 to 1/2 ounce of gold within. A pretty good find when gold is at $1,800+. Hope you all turned up some good stuff this weekend also.

P.S. A couple of members have stated they can't see the pictures that are uploaded through this Minelab forum. Please let me know if you can open up the picture below.

Sweet find Rob. Picture came up fine. I had trouble the other day though. After I posted a pic I got an error message saying I didn't have permission to view it...LOL Seems to be an intermittent thing.

Thanks for sharing your find.
