Beat by a Newby
Took a newby to one of my gold spots on WA gold fields last week, gave him my 2300 and spent a couple of hours showing him what to do, then let him loose.
his first afternoon prospecting he got 6 small nugglets.
Next day he was keen as mustard to get out swinging and got another 25 nugglets.
3rd day he got none.
4th and last day he got another 11, a total of 42 nugglets for 10grams not bad for a first trip (with a little help) think hes got the fever now lol (infact I am certain he got the fever) What a Face
Worst thing is he beat me on nugglet count I got 37 with my 7000 for 13 grams Shocked
Another mate got 27 with his 2300
Team total for 3 and half days prospecting was 106 nugglets for 33 grams  Very Happy  Very Happy  Very Happy
Also attatched a pic of a 2 gram sun baker that I found which took the title of biggest nugglet lol
