Devils dice are cubes. Good indicator for gold in a lot of areas especially the Pilbara. Those ones are magnetite crystals. Another good indicator for gold.

ktown, I was searching your topics to find out about your 2m coil when I read this thread. I was working at cape lambert last year and I heard about the pipeline finds. I studied the area for rdo trips. they have been building a new powerline corridor including land clearing for towers between Karratha and cape lambert. they started clearing from both ends and I was waiting for the clearing between Kim Norths lease and cleverville rd where I obtained a section 20a but didn't happen in my time there I did however become an expert at finding bits of grader blade after every big rock I also learnt that it takes a bit of time for ground noise to settle after grading. Today I heard that a bit of gold has been found around Karratha lately I only put two and two together that I bet you it is along this works. I am due for a trip and wouldn't mind going back up to golden valley its nice to go to the spot I know and spend a week there instead of a few hours on an rdo but its a bit far and there are many spots between perth and karratha, the only thing is homework and finding them. goodluck

I saw many of these when we were building the shitfarm for jimblebar mine (newman)smashed one open and it had a little ball in the center like a magnet that attracted the crystals. I should have been a squiral and gathered the nuts... I had one guy convinced they were metiorites.

I was having a yarn with the fella working with me at the time and he has a few at home still, he said he hacksawed one, it was so hard to cut and the core was like a white powder. I was more suttle with mine and just smashed it with a sledgie - gently with two arms Twisted Evil .

Great finds again k-town. I camped out at balla balla earlier in the year looking for gold, i wasnt real sure where abouts out there it had been found so kinda went out there winging it, needless to say didnt find a thing-looks like i may have to revisit!
