Few little reefy bits from the gully below an abandoned mine.


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

This arvo I went to Thanes GPA, parked and went for a walk with my dog from fence to fence in the creek.
The long straight section(I normally go first)was running parralel to the bedrock foliation so had no interest.
Plenty of current workings in the S bend so thought I would set up and sample them first..

Pan mods..

The current workings ground produced 1 colour to 3-4 pans.
So I thought I would check out the ground around the trees growing just offset to the middle of the main channel that's created a long island effect and started digging a narrow trench down to about 400mm.

Sampled from the existing surface down, below 200mm produced 1 colour per pan..
