Trip to W.A. and finds

Post by wizman on Tue 23 Jul 2013, 12:04 pm

Well our second trip to beautiful W.A. is over. Almost exactly 1 year after our first trip. We stayed in Cue and Mt. Magnet for a total of 12 nights with a couple extra in Geraldton and Sydney thrown in for good measure. Really enjoyed the weather, it was a really pleasant change from Arizona.

This is the bad boy I found last year near Meek and 1.7 of the reasons why we came back this year.



We spent 7 nights in the Murchison Cue Hotel.






And enjoyed some great food and brew!



A couple of really nice bros we met from Perth. They actually took me and the Mrs. to one of their "spots".



Here's the Mrs. and me in front of their rig.



Here's the result of 2 different patches we stumbled onto near Cue and the sum total of our finds this year (11.8 grams) .



We spent 5 nights in Mt. Magnet but ended up driving back to Cue on 3 of those days to detect at the patches! Never leave gold to find gold they say.....


Thanks to all the really nice folks we met. Hope to see you again.
Cheers,
Wizman

G'day Mr. and Mrs. Wiz,

Good to have our US friends over for a visit so they can rid us of that horrible yellow stuff  

Good job. You're welcome back any time
