Back to yesterday’s site, just trying to find a hot zone that is not littered with clad and no silver. First hacked at yesterday’s zone which by all indications should be a 20 silver section, but it was even worse today — just deep clad (and less of it), and no silver. Not sure why, and I have not solved this section, but sometimes the reason for failure is “Reason X” — you don’t know, but there is some reason, and you just have to cut your losses and move on.
Hit 3 other sections trying to find a hit of the shiny, and could not get anything going till it was time to go home, 2 silvers in one hole. They were deep and in trash. A pair of mercs, prolly 7 or 8 inches deep, in trash. Hard to hear, but we got em. I did not expect it to be silver when I opened the hole, cause so many other promising signals had dudded into clad or trash, but this one was deep, and it worked out. Wonder if I would have heard it if it were just one in there? After I pulled the first one out, rubbed the pinpointer around and got the second. Woo Hoo! Nice ending for a very tough day.
