Yes. I found a killer crystal in matrix, a rose, rose piece of quartz about 4-5mm, and lots of stuff that is still in the bucket because I do no want to sit in the rain and clean it :)

There were about 10-14 people, Rodney, and a guy he had working the big machinery. It started raining around 10:30 I think. It was just cold. Got to run...
