Max's hard road to ElDorado

Still chasing those gold rings , so here is summary of the last extensive hunts,

Friday

Had only about 2 hours before work and that was right before low tide,couldn't even stay during low tide hour.

I found an exposed rock formation and started to look in all the crevices , the result as below:



Unfortunately no Gold, just 3 junkers and 4 Silver.

Saturday 

having a day off i decided to go to same rock formation and hit it hard as i was sure- some gold was hiding there.

Glad i did :-)






Both 9 ct + silver ring and 3 silver coins.

Here are all the finds from thsoe 2 days:


The big chains is either very low silver content ,like.500 or junk, not completely sure.

Sunday

Had a lazy day and instead of going to the beach, went to my "drinking spot" to pick up my usual 20$ in coins. no treasures though (silver /gold) so no picture


Monday

After very sunny and weekend and packed beaches (but very Low Tide during the day) i decided to go in the evening to one of local beaches to do dry sand.

While i was wondering around, a runner girl came over and told me that her friend lost 2 sentimental value rings (one silver, one alloy) and it would be nice if i can find them. I got her number and 30 minutes later both rings were in the scoop. Unfortunately no Photo to add to my website www.metaldetecting.co.nz but 40$ as a reward is good for me as far as i was already at the beach.

Anyway, i scored another 2 silver rings in the dry sand and a total of 24$ (4 were spent on the BUS)

Tuesday - today

Wasted time at the beach, went wading, but wind and waves picked up quickly from a calm state- so had to leave as was almost impossible to balance.

So, many many hours detecting in the past 5 days and as a result, only 2 gold, 3 Junk , 7 Silver and a return job.

Happy Hunting all!
