Last weekend at Georgetown

Post  rockhunter62 on Wed Mar 22, 2017 7:31 pm

Hi folks,

Here are my finds for last weekend. The smallest went 0.19gm and the biggest was 1.14gm. The one in the middle is 0.73gm and was found at 15cm in hard red clay/rocks.




My best weekend for number of bits. Just have to find the bigger ones now.

Cheers Very Happy

Splendid! T06 always nice to come home with some reward, I definately feel there is much gold still hidden in the Georgetown area.............as vast as it is, but like everywhere else....  Rolling Eyes theres an awful lot of dirt between it Wink , good luck up there.

Nice looking colour. Well done Doug. Q40 I'v always said, if one becomes competent to the point of picking up the tiniest bits of detectable gold, what chance do the bigger slugs of gold have from escaping, when within reach of detector/coil capabilities? Only a matter of time. cheers

Hi folks,

 Here is the photo of my latest finds from up that way. Both leaf and normal nuggets. All the normal nuggets were found in the same patch. We still have to get the quartz out of the largest nugget.

Cheers

Nice work rockhunter62 . Have you tried heating the quartz then plunging it in cold water? Guaranteed to crack that sucker up. Harry

Yes Grizzly, there would be about half a dozen or so properties in the Georgetown, Forsayth area that you can pay to detect/camp on.

Cheers Doug, I wasn't really doing any prospecting when I was living in the Isa, so I missed a heap of opportunities. I'll get back up that way for a holiday soon.

Another 7.1 grams from the Georgetown area. Our backpacker from Madagascar  is modelling our finds.
Three days worth with most of it found with a Gpz7000 but all could of been found with the sdc.

Hi folks,

Carol and I just got back from our trip up to Western Creek and here is the photos of our finds. Mostly found with the GPZ7000 that I borrowed.


Larry modelling the gold again. Evil or Very Mad


We might have got the oz if we stayed another couple of days. We were averaging 2gms a day.  Cool


The biggest was the top left specie at 3.25gms down to about 0.12gm. The first 5 in the top row are all over a gram.

I'll be back that way at the end of September.

Cheers for now.

Doug

Yes Wayne there would have to have been about 18-24 different caravans/camper trailers there each day over the time that we were there. Not everyone was finding the yellow stuff. One father daughter team found a 63gm nugget up one of the creeks on they're 3 day trip.

Yes Mike,

That one is 2.5 grams and when I dug it up I thought that it was another lead projectile until I washed the dirt off it.

Cheers
