We were recently shown some great finds by a Miners Den Bendigo customer-
I was out detecting with the Minelab GPX 5000 metal detector with the 11” Commander Mono Coil in a spot near a quartz reef. We found a small piece of gold on the Saturday, it was the only piece we found but decided to return on Sunday for a more thorough look, as we thought the spot had more potential.
Returning on Sunday I began detecting and heard a faint signal and began digging. After about a foot down, and underneath a very large quartz rock, I unearthed this quartz specimen with gold showing all through it. A specific gravity test on the rock suggests approx. 26 grams of gold within it. We also found several other nice specimens and nuggets in the same area.
