First day with my nox

I went up to an old gold mining site today to use my new nox for the first time and tryed my luck round the old stacked rocks where there had been hydraulic sluicing way back in the day .I didn’t get anything through there so I went up the creek for a look in the bed rock and it wasn’t looking good till I got an actual signal which was between 9 and 14 on the screen so I bent down and looked in the crack and thought I seen a thin sliver of yellow so I got the tweezers out and pulled out my first ever nugget which is the big one in the photo …so I done a little dance then tryed again and got another signal about 8 inches away and pulled out the next biggest .
I had a bit more of a scratch round and ended up with all this .
Needless to say I’m pretty damn happy with the outcome .the large one is just under 1.5 grm .
