Gday all, long time no post a video, but as I consider myself a small scale miner I thought I should post it in here!?

My father and I started with some small equipment on a small lease as a a hobby and healthy life choice! A few years ago.
(Big Thanks to this forum and some members!) For the help and advice!
We have been through the ups and downs of getting into small scale mining and we are still here and going strong!

Anyway here is a vid of our small stock pile of paydirt for this season, will post washing vids as soon as I start!

If there are any Questions feel free to ask, Ill do my best to help! If I'm not sure I should post all the info on here I will PM you!

Its not that bad getting into mining and the more of us out there doing it, the better for all of us and the bigger the voice we have!

Please like, Sub and support my youtube channel for loads more!

I'm not an expert, I have only 4yrs prospecting exp, I wish to share and grow the love for prospecting and small scale gold mining!
It can be done at a profit, there is tons of gold still out there!
Lets make Mining great again! lol

3 pans, 2 sluice, 3 HIbanker, 1 Garrett AT Gold and no more time for dreaming!

Miner or Clager?

As my mob (Wife, son's and I.) where on a small OZ tour from one hot dusty spot to another hot and miserable spot in the middle of nowhere.
We followed another mob of the dreaded, Grey Nomad's/Old Road Clagers with all the blah hanging off the back doing the top speed of,
f..all brains and consideration for other road users along with ageing every one behind them a few extra years!
We had a scene just like this photo! I just pulled over and let em play Duel for a bit. yikes

So here is the choice I made! (Remember, the middle of nowhere ya mind wanders!)
A. (Left)
Do I want to continue down this slow hot and dusty road to another dusty hot one, going to nowhere really!
B. (Right)
Or would I get a Small Digger and a small Gold mine and have a go! Just like the Dream!

Price is around the same for both (2nd hand) if not cheaper for the one who goes Mining!
And I just may get my old hard earned money back! As well as keeping Australia moving at the right speed.
So come on, get off my roads, Sell that slow road rubbish and go buy a Gold mine! smile

Do something for Australia and yourself before its to late! Before the Boofheads in power put a stop to mining altogether!
Get a Gold Mine and lets make small scale Mining Great again! (lol) Don't let you Dreams be Dreams!
Its the perfect thing for some of us old farts to be doing! tongue
