Was beeping up a little gully, and came across an old tunnel with a nice ore pile set to the side. It had a few neat rocks in it so I felt the need to dig through it a bit :D

Nice finds.... I like rocks-n-minerals almost as much as gold.

Don't think too much, you'll create a problem that wasn't even there in the first place.

 

Be Sure To See Nugget Shooter For all your MINELAB, COILTEK and other Metal detecting needs!

I like hunting rocks , they are slow enough I can catch them.
Very nice looking, I would like to find some like that.
