Just came back from Durikai, and yes there is gold out there. You just have to look a bit harder.
Found enough to pay for my fuel and maybe a bit more, have specimen to crack open and see how much it weighs.

Also, there are people doing the wrong thing out there, and if I catch them again, I will report them. Without hesitation.
There is a reason they designate areas for fossicking. I don't like greedy people at all.

I won't say anything further on the matter.

PS. It took me 3 days and over 30kms of walking to find what I did, but that is the whole part of this.
It is not just about swinging a detector over every square inch of available area, that will lead you no where but to Frustration City.

Spend some time walking the land and reading the ground and finding the areas that look ideal.
Look for areas that look like they have not been detected by every man and his son.
(Meaning you want an area that has only had 50 people detecting it over the last 2 years rather than and area that has had 500 people on it in 2 years)

GOOD LUCK PEOPLE, MAY YOU FIND HEAPS OF SHINY

Oh, and my buddy also found a sunbaker whilst we were halving lunch. Unbelievable, but luckily I have it all on film. 0.0036grams. No detector would pick it up, we tried.
Made his day.

When you are given a flogged area to work in, you have to work harder for the AU. But if you are persistent, you will find some.
And you will learn more about the area as you dig targets and where to look and where not to look.

Found a huge reef (not Lasseter's Reef size) unworked. Keen to go back again. That is the area where I picked up the 0.66grammer.
And as always on the last day, lol.

Good luck people. Keep hydrated if you are out and stay safe.

PS. I did not encounter one snake at all in my 3 days out. And that was dusk till dawn. Guess I made enough noise.

Yeah, early morning stints are still okay, but once 11am hit, it can get pretty full on. That's when you have some lunch and find all the shady spots when detecting.

Beautiful country.

At least we have access to fresh water and a/c in the modern age. Imagine the old timers. Hardened fellas they were.

I will be out after the next batch of rain goes through, till then I have some local hunting to do.

Be good!
