3.7 oz Gold nugget found with GPZ 19.jpg

Thought I would share one of the finds with the new coil. Spot had a minimum of 4 different GPZ 7000's over it with 14 inch coil. The GPZ 19 picked up this 3.7ounce at 2 foot deep in any setting. Very quiet at first but was screaming after a few scrapes with the pick.
