    Gippsland Region

    Hello scott I have been prospecting in the gippy area for many years and yes the gold is very patchy a lot of the creeks have been dredged and the bulk of the country is very rough but if you don't mind cutting tracks through a mountain of blackberries you could get lucky good luck johnb

    GOLD and sex

    GOLD is a bit like sex ,you can spend your life looking for it , but after you get it you don't need it ,just as an example some years back I found a 2oz nugget after admiring it I put it in a draw and that's where it sat until I sold it some time later.

    Using a dredge in Australia for recreational prospecting is illegal - information and questions

    This is the type of bullshit that gave dredging a bad name .What about when these rivers are in flood the water runs brown I dredged for years and fish would swim around the nozzle looking for something to eat .
