I’m on a property not far from Bodangora, limestone is the dominant bedrock. I notice no gold mines on minview are in the limestone section but I went for a look today instead of the river. Found a lot of big weathered grey rocks that have wide mineralised veins and I’m wondering if they’d be worth crushing and panning. The big grey rocks on the surface only occur in a 50m belt through the property.

Near these there’s a very small patch of what I’m assuming is ironstone, but not 100% sure. They are magnetic but a few have a really shiny black layers on them. The patch also has occasional water warn quartz pebbles around, is there any a chance of finding gold among it all? Cheers

Where are the water worn quartz pebbles from? A stream? Waterways would suggest its worth further exploration, I reckon. thumbsup

Thanks Phil, did a bit more sampling/panning and the waterworn quartz isn’t too plentiful in that spot. Will be doing more digging nearby to try and locate more gravels but if I can’t I’ll spend my time wiser
