Gold Nugget Metal Detecting

Gold Nugget Metal Detecting

Watch as this prospector working a new nugget patch finds a handful of gold klunker nuggets, 1/2 oz to 3/4 oz.  Using a Minelab  GPZ 7000 gold detector, finds almost 3.5 ounces of gold nuggets in 3 days!  Gold Nugget Metal Detecting  yellow though

Interesting question and answer from this video:

Question; Anytime I see someone find and dig a nugget on camera I always wonder how did you know when to turn the camera on? How did you know you were going to find gold right in that spot? In order for this to be real you would have to keep the camera on the whole time you’re out detecting, and then edit out the hundreds and hundreds of hours of detecting when you don’t find anything????

Answered this in the other thread. Short answer is the camera isn’t always on, there are times when you can be more confident it’s a nugget due to particular conditions or familiar areas, and sometimes you just have to brute force it and deal with hundreds of hours of video with nothing but trash. I think it’s easy for people to see videos like these and underestimate how much time it truly takes to make the finds and then put the videos together. Which is also why I couldn’t come out with a new video every week, you have no control over what you find or when it happens, and Youtube unfortunately punishes content creators for that.

Great information and videos. Have you had any success in areas where the ore/Mineralization consists of sulfides? Once again thanks for the videos. Always grateful for people who are willing to share their knowledge and experience.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Nuggets are gold fragments weathered out of an original lode. They often show signs of abrasive polishing by stream action, and sometimes still contain inclusions of quartz or other lode matrix material. A 2007 study on Australian nuggets ruled out speculative theories of supergene formation via in-situ precipitation, cold welding of smaller particles, or bacterial concentration, since crystal structures of all of the nuggets examined proved they were originally formed at high temperature deep underground (i.e., they were of hypogene origin). Other precious metals such as platinum form nuggets in the same way. A later study of native gold from Arizona, US, based on lead isotopes indicates that a significant part of the mass in alluvial gold nuggets in this area formed within the placer environment.
