Same gully new zone..
Another flat choke point but this time with a basalt bottom, it's blocky with multiple dip and folliation changes.
Main channel had a clayey bottom but no heavy shot material and no gold.
Along one side there is a weed root Matt edge so I spent a couple of hours panning that and got.

At the end of the session I dug a small hole about a metre over down through the weed Matt and down through the clayey blonde wash and found stinky dark material, basalt was rotten and sharply folliated.
Smashed into it and took a pan full, loaded with heavy shot but no colour.
To be continued..
(That bit is 0.11)
cool

Did a couple more pans in that test hole and got nothing so it's not worth the disturbance.
Back in the main channel and slowly working my way up the flat zone crevices and starting to get heavy shot and a little bit of colour..

Same again..

leaving it alone now, 30 metre long consistent zone, just needs time and monitoring rainfall which could take a decade.

The bottom 100mm works out to approx 10 grams per ton.
There use to be 1.5 metres of goldless ground over it, now there is only max 500mm.
Interesting results from a little experiment.
