back again--trip #1

Post by Guest on Sat 06 Jul 2013, 6:02 pm

went bush with a couple of mates--a real eye opener.
we took 2 vehicles and I cant believe how much water is still lying around--even the road to the Peawah would be a trap for young players--still 2-3 weeks from being open.

Went to the area known as Yandiyarra with 2 mates who have permission..done the sight seeing thing and yes swung the detector to be sure..crossing creeks seen one vehicle bogged but the other cruiser came to the rescue and we were on our way again. While exploring for new ground we got the lead vehicle stuck in a wet area high in the mountains--unbelievable to see water up so high in a small valley and no gum trees to be seen anywhere. ...

this part of the country has deep gold and the use of 25" coils plus is the way to go. Most holes were at least a foot deep and we are led to believe some nice gold-15 plus ozs came out of these craters..pity they weren't filled in.

It was if we were on a journey set down by De havelland--great country and some areas were littered with rubbish..the 3 of us all found a few pieces and ended up with about 1/2 ounce...

from the donkeys to a lone scrub bull trying to find a wife, the journey was entertaining and a worthwhile expedition, funny enough we didn't hear any dingoes and it wasn't till the last day that we saw a few roos on the bound..

One of the partners in crime could snore like no other--absolutely unbelievable I have never encountered animal like it in all these years. How his poor wife puts up with that racket is beyond belief.

And to the couple of hedland fellas that we met at top camp--it was a pleasure chatting with both of u..

3 days of rest and hopefully back out there somewhere again.

Hi Oneday Monday,

Have you read the book about an adventure at Top Camp, they carted a grader all the way in and cleaned up.

The book was written by someone now living in the Perth hills, from memory the book was only about 120mmx100mm, but certainly a good read

Always wanted to do the trip, maybe oneday!!!!!

from memory top camp is a lease or pending and a few people have been their doing all sorts of things -- let alone burning the bloody place down.

unless u r armed with a very large coil as well as your usual artillery u r behind the 8 ball big time--u certainly need the depth--as was proven on the weekend we were there.

I've read the book too, it was a good read, what's with getting into Yandeyarra after reading the book I thought it was all Aboriginal reserve and access was denied, maybe things have changed since then.

a vast majority is denied access---and set aside for aboriginal use only and the rest u can access with family members etc from the community..
the fellas that I went with have permission to be there except in the so called no go areas.
Respect goes a long way.
