Went in to V8 creek years ago. Couldn’t find squat.
cheers trev aka the hatter
you will get gold in the creek at burnetts face, try a few pans in the orange comglomerate on the banks. dredged the creek one day. got a few nice colours. it was as cold as, middle of winter. had to break some ice to get in. had more fun with the relics we were finding. every thing from coins to old brass taps. seems everything got thrown in the creek in the old days.

its always good to hear your comments. ive heard it was good going for old junk , including a couple of pocket watches.
the v8 is now quite hard to get to , doc have closed of a lot of old tracks and roads up there , looks like the old foot trip. will call to see you again some time .
i found this guy pocking round the property today said he was from scotland if he comes back will try to get a photo of his said he was looking for gold with this Scottish method
keep watching im sure he will turn up
Watch out Keith might be a jimmy bar to a door
yep as soon as i can move i will get him on photo. hw has a very interesting method
well i suppose let you dudes know there is going to be more gold left in the creeks next season. just been told 4 weeks till run out of time , now 3 weeks to go . chopper ride to chch today for treatment so i may get an extension. thanks to all you dudes and dudess for following me. i will try to catch up to the poacher on my back lawn. remember im now got a start on that gold creek in the sky.
All the very best of luck mate.
No ya can’t go keith…your posts of beautiful west coast backdrops and inappropriate lude comments is one of the few things that keep us sane from the mid winter gold withdrawals…sending healing energy your way now…(via my magic pyrite crystals)…should receive it just after lunch…chin up mate!
inappropriate lude comment , dont know the meaning. when icant flop it out anymore its time to move. to a place where people dont know me. start again, anyway its been awhile (like55 years since i put my first pan in a river).thanks mal will meat up on a bank somewhere.
I normally like your comments, but thats just plain fuckin sad. Tragic really.
You will be missed by everyone in the Paydirt community.
Hell without you here Keith l am going to feel awfull lonely so dont you go anywhere. Your the only guy here who understands me or is like me. You start making plans for the next five years and use your mind to fight it. You can win. I know you can. I want that trip over to see you and spend time together so dont you let me down. Besides only the good die young so you have a long time to go. Dont believe the doctor…he pulled the wrong diagnosis out of the jar…stupid bastard. You make a pact with me that we will have time together next summer and l bet you will make it! On a seryarse note What Mal said about healing vibes is a point. I dont think l ever said it but l come from a family named Romery and they were gypsys and there is power in positive thinking and the mind is a powerful tool over life and death. You choose life and l will do my best to help you through it even from afar. There are a few arseholes here who will scoff at me but it’s a side of me that no one knows. So be positive and know that someone’s on your side as we ain’t finished yet. When you are in hospital you may experience something you consider weird, an inspiration, it is at that point of time you will have to make a choice…make the right one. Let me know if you have that strange experience - good luck buddy till we meet again.
All the best @kiwikeith, I really hope they can give you a bit more time. We don’t want to see you disappear anytime soon! Give me a shout if you fancy a visitor while you’re in Chch if you’re feeling up to being social after they’ve finished prodding and poking you.
Bloody hell Keith. I’m gob smacked. Am looking forward to a catch up when you get back from CHCH if you can fit me in. Thinking of you and all the best ya horny ole bugga.
Don’t you go laying that .45-70 down just yet, use that bloody thing as a walking stick if you have to to drag your arse back out of that hospital bed. Just dig your heals in & tell those quacks that you’re not gonna roll over.
Sorta no what your going through we buried my brother a couple of weeks ago
He had a very aggressive cancer an the doc was pretty close with the departure date
My last words with him sounded a bit like this… I’m going on a new adventure, had a wonderful time here but if I can’t wipe my own arse I’ll go somewhere where I can… Enjoyed reading your posts
Like everyone else has said, keep up the positive thoughts. The mind is a bloody powerful thing. I really enjoy reading your stories and seeing the photos so please put some more up when you get out on your next adventure. All the best to you Keith.
I am Keith’s daughter, I am passing on all your lovely messages while he is over this side of the hill. Don’t worry he is giving his medical team heaps of his lewd comments and keeping them on their toes. Keep the love pouring in for him.
bloody hell Keith you gotta come down and have a swing on your old dredge and smoke a few goats with some big guns, hope to see you down this way one day all the best , be positive plenty gold in you yet
