I only went there for the fishing, it's a nice little spot in the creek or out near the mouth when the tide was out. it was something to do on a Saturday night and to get ya outa town and it was a good camping spot. Never tried detecting there, but did try down the old Harding Dam access road. Never did find anything tho.

Hi Stu,on the salt up here I use two coils.The 11 dd coiltek and the 8 mono commander.The 8 stays on most of the time but when the constant groans get to me I will switch over and run with the dd in the dd settings ie dd on front switch,normal timings and adjust my gain down till the groans are bearable to my ears.Swing speed on the salt needs to be slow and balancing often is essential.Down your way I’ve only ever detected one inland salt lake and that was the one out the back of Quinns and I did alright with my 12 mono nugget finder in fine gold timings and was surprised in the difference as I can’t use that coil up here on the salt unless I’m right on the edges.

i can remember when i had the 2200 on the Nickol salt flats for the first time and was using a dd coil--worked a treat coz most of the gold was within a couple on inches,,no digging just move a bit of salt--

NICE---yeah i reckon from all accounts I was the first one on the salt with a detector that didnt yell and scream at u all the time u were ther..I rember taking my kids out there to have a play on the quad and used the quad to grid an area..just the right width--the kids enjoyed it and yes I picked up the gold --nice and clean and shinny..ahhh the good old days...Its still worth a go for any aspiring punter these days but u will have to venture a little farther out--

Salt and Gold, something about it. It's beyond my knowledge but the mining companies got onto to it quick. Check out google earth and the Lavo area, Lake Carey.
I got a feeling it won't be long before lake ballard up Leo way gets mined.

K town i am running differnet setup to you on the flats,
joey mono coil in enhance where not to salty but swinging fast listening through the groaning noise for the yelp / spike of a target
11in DD was running in cancel and cranking the gain up as much as possible seems to handle the bad salt well but i lose quite a bit of depth
