Started me trip

Post by UTBN on Mon 18 Mar 2013, 8:45 am

First topic message reminder :

G'day all Jason here. Began my trip almost two weeks ago outta kal with a mate. Weather playing up and emi is a real bastard. This is my first trip in a while and picked up where I left off really. Gold most days. I've got up to nearly 1.5 oz so far and biggest bit touch under 13 grams. Me mate has found nothing at all yet. Pretty much have given up on telling him he won't find gold with coil being swung half ft off the deck. Using an iPhone and trying to up load photos. Will post when I work it out

G'day all. Popped into kal, gotta watch the west coast. Not just the skimpies ha. The patch I found put out bout 4.5 to 5 ozs. Biggest piece 15.5 grams. I've taken a heap of video clips from start to end so will at some point upload here. Never know footage of it may assist others.
Now that this area is done I'm off to a spot where I should get bits here and there.
And to rarebreed. I sent you a pm. And yes it's that person you named. Watch out for her mate.

I hope the management allow you to put his code name on the forum. Cannot believe how dishonest and untrustworthy he has been given you were kind enough to invite him along. Good luck on your own and find lots of gold.

Yeah it certainly does change people. I work very hard to get the bits I find. 6 am til 5pm with the odd night detect as well.
I do that everyday.
I don't mind helping people at all with using their detectors correctly or what to look for on the ground to increase their chances but things go bad quickly when they still don't find.
They seem to expect you simply take them to your spots so they can get the gold. Stuff that.
They wanna sleep in, fine. They wanna hardly detect, fine.
They wanna take gold from me!
Don't think so

Used to be newbie wrote: And yes it's that person you named. Watch out for her mate.

Unfortunately this sad state of affairs has always referred to a "Him". either way it doesn't matter.

In no way will management condone "Name & Shame" but I'm sure if people need to know, you can contact Jason via PM.

However management are aware of this individual.

Cliff

that was some rough treatment Jason, jealousy and deception raises its nasty head when you least expect it, and to get the rest of the family on your back then stealing your tools was low. some people seem to think finding gold just a matter of hooking up with someone who can knows where to go and no doubt being on the right ground will help but you still have to find it. you have to do the work, and put in the time like everything else in this world, there are no short cuts just hard work and research and putting in the hard yards. I am glad you are back in action Jason, some nice finds there and a great start to the season.
well done

Hi Jason.

A relative newbie to all this mate, but your story about your detecting 'mate' and what happened sort of goes back to my 'Secretive' thread, certainly makes you think don't it. Evil or Very Mad

It's a shame Jason, I have made several real good mates on here and would trust them completely from what I know of them as they have been very open and kind to a complete numpty like me. cheers

Hopefully I'll meet them one day and repay their kindness. And like another poster said, there are plenty out there who are the salt of the earth and to be trusted completely.

It's such a shame you hooked up with one nasty bugger by the sounds of it.

Nice gold by the way mate, still learning this game, but it has inspired me to learn as much as I can.

Cheers Boney.

G'day guys thanks for messages. Moved around to a few places and only picking up the odd bit. I'm getting very little detecting in due to a girl coming up from Perth and a bizzare injury that had me in hospital for a short stay.
Whilst detecting around and through bushy trees catterpillars were dropping down over me. I kept flicking em off but missed one which was on my kneck. I felt a very itchy sensation and upon feeling my neck found a caterpilla. After throwing it off the itchiness increased very quickly and within minutes I could feel the by now severe itchy sensation spreading over my face, neck, down my arms back and chest.
Started to feel like I was burning up and began coughing non stop.
Raced to kal hospital and it seems I either have a severe reaction to that caterpillar or it that species has some type of toxins it leaves on you.
Basically I was taken down by a little catterpillars ha. I got photos of the welts that appeared a few hours later.
I hate caterpillars with a vengeance now

Hi mate.

Your trip sounds like a bummer at the moment Jason, bloody caterpillas, I know a bit about the wildlife and it could have been one of several species that caused it, but on the up side most of these caterpillars only affect 'sensitive' people, flower Laughing

Normally the 'hairier' the little buggers the worse they can be, apprently something to do with the hairs having tiny barbs on that can irritate like be Jesus.

Na seriously Jason, bloody bad luck to you, and I'll keep my fingers crossed that your trip gets better and you find a bit more gold.

Cheers Boney.

Cheers Boney thanks for that. Nah alls good I love it out here and no trip ever goes according to plan. Hopefully this rain that's here now don't last too long. Tell ya what but this chick that's with me hates prospecting. After 45 min she said she was bored.
Better head back to camp now. Tracks are gonna be a bit shite I reckon

Congrats on ya finds mate.

Cheers koeh I reckon the coppers wouldn't have been able to do much anyway. Ah it's all good now as I'm better off alone with him gone.
The girl I'm with is heading back to Perth shortly just dropping her off at airport now. She didn't like it much out bush. Got very little detecting time in. But yesterday we went out for a short time and pinged my biggest nugget of trip again. 17.5 grams. Nice looking little bit of weight.
I reckon I was lucky to get it due to faintest signal in noisy ground. Was only a foot down so I reckon it wasn't laying down flat, possibly pointing straight down. The girl i was with upon seeing it coming out suddenly wanted to go detecting more ha.
Will try to get bignuggs to upload pics if he can.
Ps
I'm meeting a forum member today to take out for a few days. I buggered up however. I thought i was to meet today but it was yesterday. Geez sorry Martin.

Hi Jase, Great looking gold there, your right, for most of us the harder we work the luckier we get.
Reading this thread I think you could start up your own soap opera, We have wild west adventure, we have gold, we have lying cheating partners, we have more gold, we have killer caterpillars, we have trips to the hospital, we have more gold and to top it all off we have a girl. Sounds like your liven the dream. Keep it up you lucky b**tard.
Cheers Mark.

Hey Gang,
Caught up with Jas out bush and teamed up for a while, was pretty hard going out there, we covered a lot of ground for little gain.
Though with good company the time flew, Jason found his first meteorite, A nice 18 gram Iron and nickel Meteor by the looks.

It took him a while to dig it out as it was buried pretty deep.
we picked up a couple of 4+ grammers, Jason got a Nice specimen which was at a pretty good depth 2+ foot I'd say, which we processed Today, we extracted just over an ounce of gold.

I will post a few pics up in the coming days of the gold that we all found and also the processing of the specimen and finished product, plus some camp pics etc....
To keep you satisfied till then, here is a snap of the speci


Also caught up with a good bloke out there named Chad, I do believe he's on the forum, though I'm unsure of his username.

Cheers guys

Johno
