Reefy gold

Post by snapper on Sun 17 Mar 2013, 4:02 pm

G,day, came across a patch a few days ago and pulled out 44 nuggets with total weight being 20.4 grams, no big nuggs came out but managed a few just over a gram, most of the nuggets were within 2" from the surface and the gold is very reefy and some with ironstone, all in an area about 30 metres x 20 metres, and in one small spot i dug 5 nuggets all within a few inches of each other, im heading back there with some water and a gold pan and do some loaming and see what comes up, cheers Stu

Hi, dug another 5 nuggets this morning for 2 grams total, going to put the 8" minelab coil on and cross chain and see what turns up, the cap is only 6" to 8" down and this coil might pick up any small ones down on the cap, cheers Stu

This morning i put the 8" minelab coil on and detected where the nuggets were most concentrated and cross chained the area, straight away i started to find very small nuggets at different depths, 8 nuggets in quick time but the storm clouds were forming and EMI was making things difficult so packed up for the day with 2 grams total. With each signal i played around with settings before i dug and found deep on the front cover in fine gold got the loudest signal and by a long way, i also had audio in boost which didnt help with the EMI and i could of put it in quiet but i can go back tomorrow. total nuggets so far is 60 for 27 grams cheers Stu

Good stuff Stu, Brings back memories seeing those photo's wish it was me Sad
What your finding now might be shallow but thrash it with your 18inch never know there might be a decent slug lodged deep down but a fair distance from where the small ones are Shocked
