Hi Guys and Girls
My 1st ever metal detector and my 1st time prospecting I just bought myself a GPX 5000. 1st time out I went to Ophir in NSW as it is around 20 minutes from my house in Orange. Searching through some old broken dirt around 5 minutes drive from the camp ground I came across this lovely 13 gram specimen which is around half quartz.
Got my heart pumping when I seen it was gold and not a bottle cap. Thanks to Kim at Nuggets From Down Under in Mudgee for being so helpful in my purchase of my detector.
Cant wait for my next days off to get out again
