New Years Eve Gold

Post by araratgold on Tue 01 Jan 2013, 7:36 am

Gidday Guys,
Got out yesterday morning for a few hours near Ararat and scored these 4 for 4.4 grams. Biggest bit 2.6 grams.
GPX 5000 and N/F 16 round mono did the trick.
Roll on our WA trip !
Cheers,
Rick

nice way to end 2012 rick, well done mate
i envy you buggers over there in vic a little.
roll out off bed and decide it's a nice day for a swing and away you go.
based in perth ya got a 5hour drive before you have a chance to find gold like that.
carn't do a day trip from here.
need to move out off town i think.

You're right Jase, we are in a sense lucky. These were found only 10 minutes from home !
However, WA still has the best goldfields by a country mile, it's just that they are a fair way for most people !

10 mins crikey!!!
yeah gotta agree with you rick, wa has best goldfeilds in oz, not that i've experienced it for myself.
i've done 2 trips in the last couple months, 4.5hour drive each way and got less then what you have for a few hours swinging and a 10min drive. lol!
mind you probably head out for another trip same area just to get the fix during the summer month's.
then when she starts cooling i'll be looking at a decent trip out leo or meeka way for a week or 2.get a tatse off the real goldfields off WA.

Gidday Pete,

See pics below, almost done.
Just waiting on a Furuno GPS unit from the US which will sit on the board behind the 2 x 27 watt CREE Led lights. Still to do the tie down points for the control box as well.
Box on the back holds everything for a day out from camp, including 2 kg gas cylinder, 2 burner stove, kettle, 5 litre water jug, detector batteries and chargers, and tins of baked beans !
Should do the job for us !

Cheers,
Rick
