Hi Aussie - it’s crown land but not many people know about it (hunting the yellow does) - it’s a funny spot because the gold is all in the top foot and a half of gravel, then it vanishes. I had the banker going with the battery and bilge pump today. Probably about 3 hours all up.

been digging that creek for a while now started going there at 13 but since the shooters don't look where there shooting before shooting I rarely get out there anymore. used to be good but well known now. not to mention all the dam lead shot in the creek.

On the couple nicer days we had last week me and a couple of mates headed bush to see what we could find. They are used to swinging a detector but I'm used to panning and sluicing of which they were keen to experience. Arriving at our spot I was pleased to see the creek was flowing....JUST! I built a small dam to create some better flow where I needed it and there was just enough flow to run my 8"inch Gold Rat sluice with dream mat. With only about 1/2"inch of water flowing over the mat I was sceptical that there was enough flow for the mat to do its thing but it still managed to pick up even the smallest of flour gold in vast quantities. It blows me away how small an amount of cons are in a clean up with this mat but it still grabs the gold.
Final weigh in was only .5 gram but that is due to 3 blokes enjoying ourselves with a few too many bevvies instead of production cool

Bought myself a pan yesterday to go through some sapphire wash from my last trip, was only expecting to pick up the odd sappire that made it through the seives. But I didn't expect this from just a couple of pans.......1533844155_20180810_054702.jpg1533844212_20180810_054821.jpg

Totally stoked, first gold ever yikes yikes
