Hi Everyone, reasonably new to this page although I have had the gold bug for quite some time.
Im after some advice on what you guys would call justifiable, grams per hour on your own claims.
I own a 4" Keene 3 stage dredge
Looking into claiming a stretch of creek that has no existing claim on it. I know theres quantities of gold in there but I just cant quite bring myself to pull the trigger on buying the claim as im not 100% sure on an houry rate that it may provide… what would you suggest?, sneak in at night time & try before I buy?. Or just bite the bullet, buy the claim & hope for the best. From my rough calculations (dont ask me how I got these ) Im estimating this creek to provide roughly 1gram per hour on average parts.
What sort of gram per hour averages are you other claim owners/dredgers getting to justify your inititial expense on your claims.
Any comments good, bad or helpfull would be much appreciated! Cheers fellas
