Here's the latest installment. Went back to Gippsland yet again and got 0.35g for my effort. Twas a good day out but I hurt my back. I mentioned it in the video saying I don't know why it's sore...but I just forgot. On the way in there was a tree down across the road...I had to move it to get past and hurt my back in the process. Ugh. It's still really sore. I won't be doing that again. I've fractured vertebrae twice in my life, once from heavy lifting and it feels very much the same. Sigh. What an idiot ey. You'd have thought I'd have learnt by now.

Long time no see ey. Here's quite a long video from my latest outing. Went back up to Reedy Creek for a few leisurely days of camping and prospecting (I really need to find some other spots I can get to with my 2wd where I can camp and prospect. I know places I can camp, or prospect but Reedy Creek is the only place with easy access where I can do both. Or I should just get a 4wd ey haha).

Thanks.

I've got myself one of those plunger magnet things, and yeah it works, but there's just so much of it, and its not all magnetic, so it takes ages to do that anyways.

But I've decided I'm going to build myself a miller table. Decided that last night after watching a bunch of vids on youtube. Can't wait to get started on it, but will probably wait a week or two until my finances improve. Actually now that I think of it, might have to wait a month at least to wait for the bilge pump to arrive from China (ebay). Ugh. Should be just paid more to get it sooner from Aus.

Great vid again mate! Miller table sure is one of the only ways, I've seen the spiral wheels work very well now too and they catch the finest of golds when tuned correctly.

Oh yeah silver.. hardcore black sand. I have containers of it everywhere...

I do like the look of the spiral wheels, but alas I dont think I could afford to spend multiple hundreds of dollars on one whereas I could build a miller table for ~$50. So I'll take that route for now and add the spiral wheel to the ever expanding list hahw

Great videos PotOfGold. Thoroughly enjoy watching them.
I detect myself but enjoy seeing the sluicing, high banking and panning.

Havent done a heck of a lot of digging lately. Just got a 4x4 though so keen to get out a fair bit in the next few weeks. But here is my latest couple of vids anyways. Reedy Creek and somewhere a little more local. Nothing spectacular to show for my efforts but a little bit of colour always makes it a successful trip I think.

Thank you. I can't recommend it enough up there (or down there depending on where you're coming from). Tis a great spot to spend a few days camped out...even when the weather isn't very agreeable.

Thanks, will do smile I know right. I'm itching to get back up there in the spring and summer.

My latest couple of vids smile Went out and found myself a new spot in the first vid, and returned with more equipment in the second vid. I'm happy enough with the results.
