Results from WA trip

Post  Detectist on Thu Aug 03, 2017 10:41 am

I'm not long back from a trip over west. I've taken the gold out of acid so I can post some pics.

All up I got about 70 nuggets and speccies. Not sure of total gold weight yet as I have to ascertain the specific gravity of a number of speccies. But anyway for now the tally is 38 nuggets for 24.3g, 10g of crushed gold and 22 speccies with the best ones weighing 21g and 18g of gold content. So that's 73g known and I should get a bit more from the other 20 speccies I have to decide whether to crush or weigh with specific gravity.
A bloke who does the demonstration of panning at the Boulder markets crushed some speccies and panned them for me. He used a drill with a homemade attachment (one of his mates lent it to him) that enclosed some chain links. The tool did a fast job of reducing the speccies to dust and made a lot of the gold into round balls which he then had to make sure didn't roll off somewhere. I had to use acid on the gold collected to remove the chain link metal. The crushing resulted in some extremely fine dust being tossed onto another mate's garden - too hard to collect and some of the dust was floating on the water.

Anyway some pics.

Thanks Jen and Annie.

The first part of our trip was at a WA Forum meet near Leonora - I think at least one if not both of you belong to that Forum too. At some stage I would hope to meet up with you.
