Hello from holgaroo

Post  holgaroo on Thu Oct 16, 2014 11:25 am

Hello, my wife and I started in this great hobby in July and headed to WA. We had our new SDC2300 and for the first 2 weeks were prospecting in areas where there wasn't any gold, nor had there ever been. It wasn't until we met people in Sandstone, where we were shown areas where there was a prospect of finding gold. Quartz ironstone and red soil was the recipe in that area. We didn't find gold but learned a lot. Everone in Sandstone was prospecting so it was like a prospectors convention. We then went to Laverton, via Leinster Niagra, Kookynie and Leonora. There we met up with friends and at last found our first little nugget of gold. We did well for first timers and ended up with 85 nuggets in all 20grams.
We have got the bug now and have found a couple of nuggets in Stawell and 3 in Laanacoorie. Can't wait to get back detecting again. Russ & Kerry

Hi Russ & Kerry
Welcome to the forum,
You did very well in W.A.. 20 grams is excellent,   Q38 it's a real learning curve over there, specially if it's your first time over..
Next time over you will do even better..
In the meantime there are areas in Vic as you all ready know.. lol!
Good luck
Looking forward to seeing pictures/ hearing more about your adventures..
