Hmmm , I keep driving past quarts in sides of roads in local area , new road works that scrape the batters , ect ect , been prob exposed for years so I always thought if there was gold in it , it would be picked at ect. ,,,, , yet I took a random small sample and crushed it for fun !!!! 2 small specs , So. , is there gold exposed and we just ignore it and think the old timers got it all ! , Just makes me wonder each time I drive past exposed Quartz in sides of road in old gold areas , After the bushfires we had a lot of land slips and they exposed quarts , Could they have undiscovered gold smile

Great question Mandissa,
I think a few might expand their horizons in that area, but remember that it's not legal to dig up the roads and verges, I believe that in Victoria that means right up to the fence lines on the sides of roads in most cases.
Cheers Steve

I know we not , but when it's not a main road and it's always falling into road as well , I'm sure I can pick up a bit , I'm not actually digging . And I did say I picked up a small bit smile .

But I'm sure everybody has seen a dozer on a private property expose quarts building a shed / house / dam ect and wonder if ,,,

Red robin gold reef was discovered as late as 1940 in the upper west Kiewa river and its
First test crush produced over 120 ounces of gold , . It took the person 30 years to find the reef from very small specs , yet the reef was rich , red robin is still being worked today .

So. , What have we missed

If you look at both sides of the road and read which way the seam runs, you could contact the landowner over the fence and heve a play on the other side of the hill to the road. wink

Here is some free gold if you can be bothered getting it out, VERY VERY hard rock and only small specs that I can see. Its a cut on Toodyay Rd on the West side 250 meters before Berry Rd turnoff.

But you can follow what's in the road cutting to where you can dig it, ie quartz vein. smile
