My 2017 W.A. Gold

Post  Ash100456 on Wed Nov 01, 2017 9:20 pm

My Tally for the 2017 Season in Western Australia, 715 pieces of gold, Biggest nugget was 10.87grams, smallest was 0.09grams. Biggest patch was 62 nuggies in an area not much bigger than my 14ft caravan.  All found with the mighty Zed.

Gold is sectioned in the photo as explained :

Top section and the small pile at the 9 o’clock position was from my trip early in the season
( roughly 3 months ) for 458 pieces.

Small pile at the 8 o’clock position and remainder of the gold on the right lower section was from the latter trip of just over a month golding for 257 pieces.

9 o’clock & 8 o’clock piles was the 62 patch found on my last day of the early trip and clean up on the first day of the latter trip ( best patch bit was a 6 grammer with a total patch weight of 37.56 grams )

Total weight comes in at 11ounces ( possibly a tad more when I crush the speccies )

Cheers
Ashley

Well done Ash!

How many trash targets did you dig as well - that's going to amount to a heck of a lot of holes! At least the 11 oz will help pay for the chiropractor's bills!

Well done, Cheers,

Thanks Kon & AnnieL,

Kevlorraine2 : Yep , Before i squirreled it away I had to get a collective photo as they were still in grouped containers.

Deutran : For sure, You have to spend the hours to get results.

GoldnQuarts : Plenty of trash targets were dug in some areas but on quite a number of the patch areas i did find the vast majority of targets were gold. Mind you on one patch i got 31 nuggies and slap bang in the middle of the patch was 11 shotty pellets in a smallish area.

Cheers
Ashley
