Awakino Gorge Prospecting


#1

Has anyone tried the Awakino gorge at all. It looks favourable every time I drive through there with basement rock exposed in road cuttings. Not everywhere as much of the area has Mt Messenger marine deposited papa over it but deep in the gorge the rock is much older

Not sure about north island locations myself, though I’ve been surprised at some of the chat here so far suggesting there’s more up there than I though!

I assume this is the Awakino Gorge you’re asking about? http://www.topomap.co.nz/NZTopoMap/nz52671/Awakino-Gorge/

Gidday Gavin.

Yes that’s the one. Never tried it but if I have a free day in January may take a closer look
