But I can take my SDC down to the same park and find $1 and $2, and then go to a place where I can find gold. And if tgere are subframes, then there might be bigger.....My thoughts exactly! There's no point taking digging targets all day to get several bits that only total say 0.3g. When the fuel costs more than you find - what's the point?
Just about every park in Aus will produce more gold ($1 & $2 coins) with an Equinox in half the time.
Sometimes it just makes sense to move on & find a more productive spot, I think 3 to 500 bits to an ounce belongs in a pan!
