Post by Guest on Sun 03 Nov 2013, 2:41 pm

its been a very hard slog this year but I haven't finished just yet..

just short of 5 ozs and a 3 gramer on the right

this was the first 4 and half ozs which took me the best part of nearly 3 months..

Hi Ray
Very nice mate, looks like your doing okay & once you have all the issues worked out with your rig & reinforced you will have more consistent runs.
cheers

we moved a bit of dirt but processed about 150 tons out of our allocation of 500.

this has been a hard slog but I was up to the challenge although very frustrating at the best of times..

nice colour in your bowl ray. better than nothing for 150 tonnes, as said, now you have just about ironed out the wrinkles you should get a good run from now on improving the returns, heck i done 40 days this year with only 14g to show. im happy with my tally for the season and look forward to better each year. I couldnt take that heat but... 47 in the shade, thats for the Bungarra's.

Well done oneday. Looks like nice chunky gold, good for jewellery. Is there much fines amongst it or is it all reasonably coarse?

Cheers

hi guys
yep theres a lot of small gold and a fair amount of fines.

had a few around the gram with one going 3 grams..

we currently have 2 piles on the go some 20 feet between them one is good the other is very poor but it still has gold in it..

I am happy now that I have finally got the machine workin properly with a new 13hp motor to boot..

last night done 4 hours for only 5.2grams as I said 20 feet makes a world of difference

regards

Good to see you have the machinery running ok and finding some nice colour, (see on another later post tractor water pump probs, bugger:.7:  ) hopefully after that's fixed you can get a good mechanical break down free run and some good gold for your effort.
Good luck.
