I was wondering if anybody has found any Moranbah diamonds?
Now that I live up here, I intend to find a few.

I went looking yesterday in several places that 1 of my local mates said they are found but all I could find was notjing but iron rocks as far as the eye can see.

Anybody who has had a go got any tips?

Gday Wilson, welcome to the forum.

Try Wally's advice above. Also, take note of what sorts of things are lying on the ground. I read earlier in this thread about petrified wood. It has been established that igneous processes are not necessary for the fossilization of wood to occur. Having said that, the geology of eastern QLD is very heavily igneous-derived and there can be a relationship. The gravel banks of parts of the Fitzroy river near Rockhampton are a mass of both petrified wood and waterworn quartz occurring together, including waterworn quartz crystals.

If you start seeing things like petrified wood, chalcedonies/agates, chunks of quartz etc, I'd be paying the ground close attention in that spot. Doesn't mean the Moranbah diamonds will definitely be there but if I see stuff like that lying on the ground, I always slow down for a good look.
