    ⭐ Alluvial Show n Tell

    Hi - nothing to write home about to be honest. The spot that had yielded ounces at times is done I think so I spent the weekend testing and looking for a new spot. Found a decent area with lots of much finer gold so Ill head back soon.

    Heathcote area Victoria information and questions

    hi, parts of McIvor Creek are okay and I'm told Wild Duck Creek can deliver as well. I find most of my gold elsewhere but it is a nice part of the world.

    Fake private property signs
