Metal detecting finds - gold nugget

Minelab came to the area that we have many small miners looking for gold using panning with wind. Minelab wanted to show the miners how the metal detector works. After showing them how it works, I took the X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack to use in the area they have been working in now for over 3 weeks and have not found that much gold. We know that the gold is there as others have found gold nearby.

In 1 hour, with the Minelab X-TERRA 705 Gold Pack, I was able to find a nugget in the same area that they have been working in for the last 3 weeks. I was very surprised and very excited.

I am now telling everyone that they must buy this machine if they want to be rich in Burkina Faso.

Thanks for the comment! Here at Minelab, we thought that this was a great story – the first of its kind from this Region – and felt that it satisfied the judging criteria. We love receiving Success Stories from around the world so keep posting and you never know, it could be yours that wins next month!

This man may have found "one gold nugget", but with almost certainty the find changed not only his life but provided hope to many others that may have nothing. Now that he joined the ranks of Minelab Success Stories winners, he is also a hero for his people and a beacon of success. Demonstrating that if they are willing to put forth what diligence and determination they too can be recognized and acknowledged as was he. My find that placed me in the Success Stories back in Feb. 2012 could be questioned by many too. I see the story that is not written in Apanga's writing, and I am very happy that he won and I am proud of his success, he found a gold nugget which is something that I have yet to find.

Never used a detector before and to find gold in an hour is fantastic and using an X-TERRA 705 very well deserved just think what he could do with a GPX 5000 feed more than his family.

Bravo,orpaillage traditionnel est pénible et dangereux au Burkina Faso....
Avec les détecteurs tu as juste qu'a t'abaisser pour ramasser écolo pas de puits pas de galeries et pas de morts............
Orpailleurs africains soyons responsable et respectueux de notre globe.
