Did it sound like the bloke at 5.05?

My office is nout like that… I am looking out at a security fence with an industrial gold process plant in the background looking forward to a Christmas dinner tonight cooked by an Indian Chef and shared with 500 Lao with a limited grasp of engrish.

When it comes to goldmining it takes a lot to impress me but I think that video is bloody marvellous - in fact it makes me jellyarse.

Many years ago I used to tie an underwater dredge underneath my pontoons and using a three inch Aqualite motor I could navigate up the river using a shovel as a rudder!

You set up is a lot faster, very practical and very efficient. My system was primitive in comparison but worked.

some skinny water to run an outboard on.
