Hi jackthehound,
it's a small world. ha ha ha. Yes it's him alright, also known as the mad russian. He's spent a fortune jumping through hoops trying to satisfy the authorities.
I guess he's trying to pull the pin and get out of the game. Not a young bloke anymore. He's just returned from WA without success in trying to sell that mine.He's going to show me how to find gold in the Creswick state forest here in Victoria. I found a spot on a small reef that always produced tiny subgrammers.
For some reason it dried up. He's going to help me find the trail again. lol

I didnt check where the Parnell Mine is on the maps but i was at Mosquito creek and environs in 2006 and i still have the GPS coordinates for a spot where 150 ounces were taken off the surface ( all within 8 inches depth and using GP3000's )

What did you say the costs are to get approval for push and detect assuming that modern detectors show more colour at greater depths ?

using a dozer or even a bobcat to scrape 10 inches off the surface on an area 300 x 200 metres is not unattractive.

I have a bobcat..

if your spots on an EL headsup you can put a SPL on it,get a POW (program of works) approved and go for it,i say EL cause i think theres alot around there but if its unpegged ground well even better,then a PL on it,havent pegged a SPL but i gather a POW has to be submitted as well,where just going through the motions at the moment on a PL,we made a bit of a boo boo with the POW and now dealing with native title hoops,we could of dodged that another way.....

Well, a whole year has gone by, poor old George has still not sold the mine. The last I heard was that he's got some foreign people coming down for a look.
.............good luck George.

Equipment? LOL. I looked at the site on google earth and I could not find a single thing! All that's down there is a a hole (opening to the mine). He's spent a fortune getting in a surveyor, getting bores done and then getting an assay on the bore samples. He rang me just a few hours ago. He's just come down with some bug, lost sensation to his legs and is on antibiotics in some hospital in Perth. Talk about bad luck.
Looking back on it all I wish I never put the article on this site. I doubt whether it will sell. If anyone is interested I could send the assay results and all other relevant information to you. just PM me.
