My 2016 awesome nugget looks like this......

Hi Folks,
Keen to see the Nugget for 2016 that was your best for the year. Doesn't have to be the biggest, just the one that gave you the most joy and perhaps was the hardest to find.
My Best Nugget is pictured below.
Happy Hunting and look forward to seeing your favorite GOLD Nugget I thought I better add.

Thanks, you probably seen them already but was a month or so back when I was just practicing with the 5000 I picked up haha, turns out the detector is working well. You will see a big chunk next year from me I reckon.

I was happy with these little nuggets, not because of the size but because they were found in an area i had cleaned out with Minelab coils.
 I went back the next day after finding the last two i could hear with the Minelab gear and returned with a Coiltek Elite 11".  They were of varying sizes and all easy to hear. Hard to pinpoint when out of the ground due to the way the 3 coils are wired.
