1523785305_4550a1cd-1048-4a8b-b96f-4a8ffdd71563.jpgA couple of spare hours this morning so I was off for some crevicing.The creek’s been producing good results over the last few months but the colour has run out on the inside bends I have been working,saturday mornings result for a couple of hours saw just .07 gm.
So I went to another spot a 100 mts downstream and got .2gms,another one 100 mts further along and I got .3gm.
Hopefully we get some rain soon and replenish the gold stocks,but until then it’s time to get to the bottom of those crevices. thumbsup

I hit some bedrock this morning for a nice half gram.
The creek is now completely dry but this bedrock is easily accessible once the 6 to 8 inches of overburden is removed.The overburden is mainly mud on the top with an inch of gravel and clay sitting on the bedrock.
It’s an inside bend that the gold always falls out in whenever it floods,and last years results were pretty fair as well from the same spot.
I had a bit of trouble locating this spot in the creek this year as last winters flood really altered the look of this spot,but now I’ve located it I will try to get back over the next week or so when I have a couple of spare hours.
This come from about 2 sq feet I recon,so I will expand that area and see how we go.
The pics show some of the gold covered in mercury which isn’t unusual for the gold I find here,and some bedrock leadshot!1524991620_0b75ec1e-bdce-4870-85d5-5b8c6b57805e.jpg

Had one of those days today where everything seemed hard. Took ages test panning, went over face first with a full backpack. Ran 6 buckets through the sluice before I called it quits. For those wondering my buckets aew 11 litres. Cheers!

A few days out panning some tailings in a local Beaconsfield creek. They certainly missed a fair bit.


Prospecting must be like fishing, the big one keeps getting away!
