Who else here has been slaving away at the coal front (shall we say) and can't get away from it (because it's guaranteed $) to hunt the potential or known riches under our feet?
Makes ya sick or sad doesn't it!?
Knowing some bastard may be pillaging your spot?
Knowing some or many bastard/s has walked all over your ground at the least?
In WA, know it very well (have good spots), know NZ well too (south island esp and have my damn good spots) but unless ya prospect at least 80% and claim the dole at the same time, well, lets just leave it at that for now!
