Our prospector customer reports that the find was in virgin ground consisting of hard grey clay away to one side of a run of old diggings which had been detected many times in the past. The nugget was 24 inches under the ground surface and also had a 6 inch diameter log over the top of the target which only gave him a very faint signal.
