My prospecting bits and pieces

Will add things here from time to time. My mate and I decided to brave the cold today and get in the water for a spot of dredging. Still exploring this area and have dropped down stram some distance from where we know payable gold is to be had. Today we managed a few hours in the water but initial results don’t look too flash. Will try the spot again in a couple weeks and punch a hole in deeper gravels. The hot water wasn’t working today so we were reluctant to get too seriously into it. Will post a pic of takings later, only around 1.5g if we’re lucky. Look at the water temp!

Matt, have you noticed how the temperature rises when you spot the yellow?
Good to see some of you youngsters with enthusiasm.

At the end of day one we found what looked like better ground. On day two we worked this ground For a couple of hours or so and ended up with this


So a total of 11.4g for the two days. Nice weekend away

My mate and I had another go at it on Saturday. The river was up and we had trouble working in the white water where the best gold seemed to be hiding. We still got 6.3g for the day. Water was 7.7 degrees. Looking forward to the river levels dropping and getting into the good stuff
