Went for a quickie today. Im running out of crevices as i have cleaned most of the crevices out. We Need a flood up here. So i moved to the gravel bed and noticed a line of big rocks sweeping around the inside corner. So i panned the gravel around them and found this. 1514284617_img_2240.jpg 1514284837_img_2242.jpg 1514284912_img_2241.jpg This has suprised me as all the chunkie gold was found in the top of the light and loose sands and there was only fine gold specs 4 inches down on the clay layer underneath. I have been throwing this fine and loose sand away as overburden. Why would large gold be on top and fine gold underneath. neutral any answers would be grateful as this doesnt make sense to what i been learning about gold. Thanks

Nice looking flood gold Steve. Wow, would love to be into that stuff. Nice easy panning mate. Looks like you guys will be building up a sweat relieving the creek of its treasure. Well done. Let us know when you get your first kg. Hope that bend produces big time for you.

Cheers

My first gold for 2018. These were the "big" ones that I could get out. Quite a few small ones went into the sniffer bottle too.

Just did recon mission to the Tooloom area sampling an old lead.
No water close by.
Backpacking sample dirt out back to the vehicle to pan.
Colour in pic was the only successful sample and was the last sample at the very top of the lead.

I remember 30 years ago working in an abbatoir in Wagga that if it reached 40deg in the shed we would up stumps and head home.This was a Union rule.Funny thing was the thermometer was always in the hottest part of the shed.

1518612358_7596d7d3-1314-4770-a99b-8a49d35f4ce0.jpgWent out on private property south west of Warwick . The biggest clinker detected being .77g so far , can’t seem to crack a grammar yet . Was running out of time and dug six bags of dirt for panning at home , will take several weeks to pan and re-pan . So far so good , really happy with my biggest gold prospecting success so far .1518612285_caf3a87f-59c8-48bd-84a5-c6701876241b.jpg

Thanks Heatho and smoky it was south west of Warwick , the property had 2 old gold mine shafts on it , but long bulldozed . Was a lucky stumble on that patch running down to the creek bed , I detected 20 peices and dug a fair bit to pan . Yeah will be staying for a while next trip Heatho.
