Found a pretty good spot, but it was hard won gold. Took me a few hours bush bashing the dredge in… then getting it out again at the end. Gold dredging boot camp keeps you fit!
The bigger bits, all sub-gram. Heaviest bit was 0.6 grams:
Then cleaning up the fines I think I also won a few tiny bits of platinum?!
The tiny, assumed platinum, bits I’ve grouped together in the middle (directly below the larger piece):
They stayed with the gold while cleaning and sounded the same as gold when dropped on the pan. Pretty shiny, no dullness at all, so I’m guessing they’re not mercury amalgam. Being in the river for a while I’d expect any mercury amalgam to be a bit dull?
