Will be interesting to see how much gold gets found in the next 3days……lucky I just put new mats in my sluice……good luck all
XD yeah, might go prospecting in our creek (its man made in Canterbury so no gold) just because I put some conctrate through the sluice once and I might find a spec or two I lost lol.
You are supposed to be staying home.
Just need a bit of exercise, might go crazy otherwise (crazier I should say)…but yes am following the rules…
Me too. I would love nothing more than to jump in my truck & drive off to go detecting. I know I can go to numerous places & would not see another soul all day.
You know where you can come…tomorrow. Am in Auckland about to fly down.
Hope you aren’t showing any symptoms from your “visit” to Auckland.
Beautiful day to be up the hill today too…bugger.
Maybe when this is over?
The moment it is over - I had a cold before and went there and still got it but no bad bugsies - nothing that fly spray wont cure. I came down last night and escaped any of the places of interest by a wide margin as I was more or less stuck at friends homes ‘socializing’. The only place of interest I went was MY place of interest.
I am ready to go any time you want.

I would be happy to return it to his family if they can be traced.
