Blackfellows Creek, which was part of the Willunga goldfields, still shows some colour, but you will need permission. There was also a gold mine almost dead centre of Granite Island back in the day.

Sent you a PM about that Clrendon gold, HBG.


If you mean the Coolanine Mine, it was actually an unsuccessful copper prospect with some lead (although I thought it was at Rosetta Head). Granites of the area are not good for gold.

I pulled a nice piece ( about 1/2 the size of my little finger nail ) from under a rock in the river just down from where Reid creek runs in to the onk. Try digging behind some of the tree close to the river when the river is at its lowest. If you got up to Reid creek and then continued up around the next bend you would have noticed all the old workings.
Stranger you got no gold , i all ways came away with something. Dont look in the obvious spots try deep under rocks in the river or the tree roots higher up on the banks.
I have mostly panned there. Use a wash bucket to move and classify more dirt. (its easier than carrying a sluice in)

Hi hillbillygold that would have been great to find a piece like that, heaps of nice quartz veins around Reid creek, the river has constant environmental flow at atm so not going to get low easily I have seen up around the next Bend I think I know what u are talking about as the alluvial diggings, I have a sluice now so might try that down there soon thanks for information much appreciated
