Hi Adam, about 100 metres from the corner of Caledonia Gully and Joe's Road, if you walk the gully floor back towards the highway, you will come to a 3- 4 foot drop off.  Take your pick and go crazy in that drop off, clearing out as many rocks and stones as you can. I got a few grams from that hole-drop off. Good luck, Harry

Adame, first I panned it, largest piece was about half a gram, then we used a Gold Bug 2 and got a few more .2's and .3's. It's a natural trap, if you have the time dig it out.
