I've been wanting to film some trips for about 2 years now, finally decided to just do it and upload it.

Flatlander the gold is very fine around here, this was a flood gold layer i was chasing, there is chunkier pieces elsewhere though. pickshovel goldpan

If i have a lot of cons i will classify first, i find with the dream mat i dont get much cons at all. I just pan off any larger material, then start panning back the black sands. Snuff up any visible gold and repeat.
Once happy i collect the black sands and when i have a good amount i run them through the blue bowl.

Hi Westy , Nothing wrong with your Post mate.
Good Stuff. Not everyone understands all the effort that goes into it.
`i` think N.S.W has opted out on the high bankers.
Erosion happens regardless.

Thanks Bush. Erosion and changes in creeks will happen regardless as you say. Floods carry debris which can change a creeks course all together. Digging a little bit of soil to run a highbanker isnt going to affect much in the long term.
