Yeah I get what your saying there, your not really going to get even close to rich off the public site but by me saying rich I was really meaning walking off with 5 grams for the weekend (which is at my age what I pretty much call rich XD ), I heard that moonlight was the being called the richest river in the world in an West Coast rush documentary I heard about a year back, I have heard a few other people say so here and there, and I think I reamember an old west coast rush book saying that it was the richest river in the world, but I will have to double check on that one If I can find the book, and I guess I have a bit of an argument for a river (im not sure as being richer in its day) but right now being way way way way way way way way richer then moonlight even if moonlight had not been mined and we were getting 4 gram holes everywhere we dug. Yeah maybe our assement is not completley perfect, I think I did a decent job on goldsborough and slab hutt as we have been to both 1/2 a dozen times but that could also be why we put them so high up because we know them so well and always do well at them, and especially the creeks like jones creek and lyell creek we have only been to once so they could change around If I ever do a ranking every fossicking river in New Zealand video. Just wondering why would a creek catchments effect the gold? Would it just mean its more prone to floods so more gold would wash down and it would have more sources to wash down from? I would assume thats what it is .
Thanks for your feedback though its greatly appreciated.
