Nice as always.If you got that much iron a detector would drive you nuts.But A lot of that iron could be valuble.So it is a toss up.Neverknow what you might find.Luck Mcbain.
I started out with nothing Istill have most of it.

Hey NSG.
 I can tell you that all the Arsenopyrite I have ever waved my detector over in NS (GB 2 and Falcon MD20) ALL give a METAL response, so from that point of view you can't just dial-in for gold only.
Arseno drives me (and my detectors) completely NUTS! Sorry I didn't have good news for you in that regard.

It is a crazy amount of pyrite, arseno and regular.
My thoughts exactly on interference, confirmed
now by Beav.   If you have been to The Ovens, you
will understand the extent of the pyrite on site.

McBain, maybe a secondary revenue source from
smelting rusty beach iron.  I use it to keep my tarp
down.

Made a trip to the beach today, one day chickens, feathers
the next.  Today was feathers.  Good to be alive and panning.
I brought a sweat towel and a ziplock with ice and two waters.
30 C and not a wisp of wind.  Horseflies with green eyes after
my elbows, lotsa swatting.  Sweating off the fly dope.   A few
seals moaning off shore.  Wore myself out.  What we do for a
bit of gold.
Gold is good.

 <-thinking-> It could be one of those oak Island relics.One never knows.Could be wrth Millions Fat chance but one never knows.I get tons of old railroad junk,Useless junk.But there were a lot of train wrecks.If I could find one of the brass plates off one  of those wrecks It would be worth a buck.Just saying ,Luck Mcbain.

Got out a week ago.  It was -4 C on the beach, wore a scarf and big coat
had to take it off and pan in sweatshirt.  Nice and sunny but cold water.
Leaky boot caused me to stay for only an hour and a half.  Good lowest
of the full moon tides.  Was able to get to some areas out in the water
that are usually covered by eelgrass and slime.  Nice recovery of gold for
a short time out.  Storms over winter have stirred things up.  The larger
brown nug in the middle I took a needle nose pliers to it and it bent. Very
pleased for a February panning outing.

Got out yesterday and had some luck in an area I have not frequented. 
A fisherman showed me nice gold out deeper.

I always find it interesting that even the smallest bit of Gold, under magnification, still looks just like a large nugget. 

I always like that.

Nice Finds!
Do you need a wet suit to get to that nice gold the Fisherman told you about?
