G,day Big Chop, i walk out to the edge of the scapes and detect around the trees where the machinery cant get close to and then also detect just outside the scaped area, even though others had been here before me alot of gold still gets missed, the 2 larger nuggets were down in the calcrete about 8" to 10" down, i used the 24x12 nf coil but i might put the 14" solid round on when i go back as i think the bigger coil can miss some of the littlies cheers Stu

Good work Stu,

I am SO looking forward to getting over next year. I usually don't wish my life away, but I just wish the next 9 months would bugger off ! Very Happy

Cheers,
Rick

I'm no expert, but I only found small gold in the Lavo area and I have never heard of anyone finding the big bits. I'm quiet sure it's there, just find it.
