Hi all

Happy New Year to everyone.

Found a mound a dirt in a cleared pine forest and pulled out 28 fly specks with the SDC and 2 more close by for 1.32 grms..

Thought I saw a glint of gold in the dirt so I filled 6 buckets and panned it.

Results .47g,

Melted all my SDC fly specks down for a 8.33grm button, :)

That practice was quite common except when sent to Ballarat in winter for a cuppla weeks. Much to cold for a tent stay-Joisus. I remember that the pond in front of the school froze over all the time. Brrrrrrrr!!!!
I remember as a kid I went to Ballarat to ride once, we got there about midday and the track was totally covered in frost, I reckon its the coldest place I've ever been :argh:

Spent a great arvo with 20xwater. He was onto a patch with the Gold Monster.
Was very happy to let him loose with the gpx. I was in chill mode and didn't swing much at all. Good combination the monster and the 6000.
Great catching up with you 20xwater. We'll do it again soon. :Y:

Good stuff guys, sounds like you both had a great day.
Solid Luck, great to see you are getting a few bits here and there with the 6000, was worried you'd give up on finding the shiny after all the lead you've been finding with it.
Must do a catchup weekend again soon :Y:

Yeah, anytime Pete. I'm usually free. Just to be clear 20xwater found all the bits yesterday.
I was standing back and getting a different perspective on the sound. My hearing isn't the best at times.
I have not given up. I'm just a slacker :lol: I still go out a couple of times a week.
Have found a few bits here and there.
Up to Waanyaara today but with this weather I can't see myself doing much :argh:
Apart from sitting around chilling.
See you out there!
