Great find Anthony, highly unusual to me,like petals to a flower,
what detector did you use and at what depth did you find them?
Certainly look like corn flakes. thumbsup

G’day all

The weather forecast was pretty ordinary for the southern goldfields this weekend so I wanted to try my luck up north.
I always wanted to try out Wedderburn, Kingower, Dunolly area but kept on driving up to Wedderburn.
It was the first time up that way and I was surprised that there was a lot of rubbish in the area yikes after about 2hrs swinging the big arse 19 inch I got a good signal.
only about 7 inch deep I dug a beauty little nugget big_smile

BigWave in all honesty all you got to do is walk over it and that’s not with a 45,5000 or a Z. A ATX Garrett would find 98% of the gold that I have found.
A good mate of mine owns a ATX and I’ve proven that it would find most of the gold that I have found but he doesn’t have the right frame of mind to find it and some fellow prospectors from PA know what I’m talking about. Just got to stay focused and you will find what your looking for.

Lovely piece, I've been in Wedderburn for a week now and haven't been able to find one of those. Scored about 30 odd little ones just can't score a good one.

Hi Folks,

Went out again this morning chasing some little stuff with the SDC. Some of the pieces were so small that it was difficult to find them in the scoop. All 10 pieces came from a mullock heap within a square metre of ground. I think it’s time to get the eyes checked again and adjust the prescription. 1531113460_1b2e4f3e-9321-4b80-9a23-522f30f87562.jpg

Cheers

Is 10 a typo or did you loose one, my eyes aren't the best but I can only see 9 yikes. Nice finds either way thumbsup sounds like it's worth revisiting maybe with a dry blower once the ground dries out wink.

Bugger......Thanks guys. Found it on the bench top in amongst the bread crumbs from a late lunch. It was just like trying to spot it in the scoop all over again. Well at least that improves the tally by 0.03 grams. Pretty impressive hey.......Well the SDC is anyway.

Cheers

SC75; Wedderburn is probably the most thrashed ground on earth, when it comes to nugget hunting, and there u go, 10+grammer within a couple of hours, and your first time detecting there, you have to admit mate, you have some kind of special luck, coz there are people who live in that town and detect almost every day, yet would`nt find anything close to that size.
You`ll probably say something like ( i did my research, blah...blah) but lot of other people do all that and more, yet just don't have that success,( i`m just saying), anyway was a nice find again, and keep posting!!!

G’day ironrock
If Wedderburn is one of the most flogged ground in the GT I would like to try out Dunolly, Kingower,Moliagul,Talbot just to name a few.
There shouldn’t be so much junk around if it’s been thrashed. I heard the story about that mick bloke finding a 80 oz plus nugget around Wedderburn and I can see why, if your finding junk you will find gold just got to dig everything. Maybe some prospectors can’t be bothered but me I dig everything rainbow I’m not saying you can’t be bothered just in general.
I would like to find that retirement nugget to mate just keep trying I suppose.

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

A good range of gold size on my last trip out, as usual the smaller stuff far outnumbering decent bits.1531488660_b89eb2ac-7e8f-4e90-a8ac-7e3f31830895.jpg
