Hi all

Taking a week of at the end of march looking at heading to the coast or otago depending on weather keen to hit the fossicking areas with my sluice box and pan whats people’s thoughts on the public areas or is there any claim holders that could be keen to work something out for a couple days panning and sluicing thanks for your time rock on

Gidday mate :slight_smile: I’ve panned and used my wee sluice on most of the public claims around otago and always come away with enough colour to keep me happy… sometimes even abit more than expected! Plus it’s a good place to meet like minded folk and share a yarn. Or a beer… enjoyable times and on a nice day can be somewhat social too!

Will probably head to the public areas on the coast should be good

I tried my hand at panning for the first time last month at the goldsborough fossicking area and came away with a bit of colour so might be worth heading there
