Same Spot/Another Merc, Silver #22
Quote this message in a reply
Went out after work today because the weather was gorgeous. Tried a couple of those spots I mentioned yesterday with no luck and went back to the place I found the 38 yesterday and 12 feet from where I found the 38, a 36 pops out at about 7 inches. Didn't have to play "Where's the Merc?" on this one. Took my time and cross targeted it pretty good.

The remainder of the day SUCKED! Went back to another spot I had found a Merc at, got a strong tone 3-29 VID at 6 inches and dug my ass off in rocky dry ground for a 1980 clad dime. Threw the towel in after 4 hours. Almost zip on clad. Under a buck. Ohhh, but I have a lot of copper memorials!!!

GL out there everybody!

Ed

No wonder I can't find any silver, you guys are sniping it all!!! Tongue Nice save on the mercola! Ground is the pits here too, which is one of the reasons I've been so poohed about going hunting. But...

Man, nice & breezy out tonight with an October like chill in the air. Love it!

You're really killing the silver, Ed Yes

P.S. - That Hori Hori is AMAZING! Thank you Wink

Michigan,

Thanks! Some of it isn't too bad at all but some that gets little shade and has a high clay mix is a bear. That plug for the merc was 4" deep and the bottom of it came out flat as a pancake from resting on a compacted mixed clay which I dug out another three or four inches. Luckily it rained pretty good here Tuesday night so it wasn't too bad a dig. I search over some areas that have sandstone bedrock 12 inches down and can be as dry as hell even after a rain. Those are the real buggers to dig, as you almost need a small portable electric demo hammer. But I ain't about to drag along a 12# Hilti demo hammer with all the crap I carry around now.
