Gold Nugget in the dugout… Burnaby
A few years ago I was at my mechanics getting my truck fixed, as I was sitting and reading a treasure magazine Dale came into the room and asked me about the ”Finders” rack card he saw in cab of my truck.
Dale owns the shop and has been friends with my wife since they were kids and fixing her car for many years.
I told him that I treasure hunt and that I started a service to help people find their lost jewellery at beaches, parks, lakes, yard & ski resorts.
He seemed very interested and I could tell that he wanted to ask me a question so I asked if he had lost something.
He laughed and said that he’d lost his refined gold nugget that was made from all of his old gold. I asked where, he said at a baseball diamond in Burnaby.
I told him that I’d take a look for it, he said that it had been lost for over two years and that he saw people metal detecting in that park and that it would be a waste of my time.
I told him that you never know unless you check it out and I’d be happy to do so. He gave me the name of the park and he told me that he put the nugget in his bag before the game and left it on the bleachers.
Later in the game he went to get a shirt from out of his bag, and that’s where he thought the nugget fell out. He also descried the nugget and then drew it on paper and gave it to me.
After I got my truck fixed I drove out to the park to take a look and see if I could find it for him. I found the bleachers and they were metal and light, so I moved them over about ten feet in order to search the area.
After grid searching the area I found a bit of change and bottle caps and pull tabs but no gold… I sat there for a second thinking about where else I should search and just for the heck of it I searched the dugout and within seconds I had the nugget.
It had been in the dugout for two years and no one found it… Talk about luck! I called Dale to tell him the good news and told him where I found it, he remembered at the end of the game putting his bag in the dugout and getting his keys.
I looked at the picture he drew and it matched perfectly! The nugget fit in the picture he drew exactly as if it was traced… I think he missed it…
I received some free work on my truck the next time I took it in…
I love my job!
