Easter Weekend Pics - Paynes Find and Beyond...

Post by NuggieDreamer on Tue 22 Apr 2014, 1:45 am

(...Original post got edited and lost, wasn't me)

Some of us met up on our Easter prospecting travels out Paynes Find way and Beyond for a swing over Easter;
Flying Kiwi, Goldstrijk, SandstoneRon, Sandstone-Miss Benji, Peaky-Russel Coight from Aussie Adventures with his groupies, newbie PlasteredMike and Myself.

We all managed to find each other by Coo-Wee in the morning by lung and radio (as someones meet up point on Ozi Explorer to Google Earth Interpretation needs a bit of brushing up, hey Cloggs!) and we soon found a cool place to make base camp.

Tom had the 1st sub grammer in the pocket less than 10 minutes in.
That got everyone not suffering in the heat, diving for their gear that afternoon and join the scoring match between the main players; Tom and Pete.

Peaky came through, with some others on the Coight Aussie Adventure tour he was on, showed us a nice find from the previous day and impressed us all, well done mate.

was a great weekend and good to catch up with a few more of the DWAG crew, must say we all managed to knock back a drop or two  kwdf  with some pulling up the next day worse than others  Wink 

being such a thrashed area was well stoked to pull a few bits out of the ground just goes to show that they never get it all, even got onto a little run among all the trash happy days  Cool

my telly for the trip was 16 for a bit over 5 grams but got to say the gold was a bonus compared to getting into the bush with great bunch of dudes

Hey Jase. We camped in a calcrete paddock covered in diggings, a bit northeast of your camp spot... the boys detected in radius from there, both sides of the main road PM Sent (GPS Co-ords).

I'm the culprit who f***ed the original post.  I clicked on the edit button instead of the quote button.   spank 
I've apologized to "D" for doing it.

all is good cliff, just read the post earlier in the morning and had me baffled when reading it later in the day. It had me wondering if it was my mind  lol! 
the old inter web trickery got the trickster  

looked like a great trip pete, bloody bugger I couldn't do it mate. don't get me wrong though I had a ball of fun working on Friday and Monday  jkihyig .
glad you guys pulled a few little one's in a bit further then where we have detected, we done a reckie run around that area when temps got up there on aussie day weekend to let the air-cond do it's job and spotted a area worth a go and I'd say that's the spot you boys ended up on. our 1st trip up there we saw a 4b and caravan coming up from that way, he didn't get it all.
sounds like Russel peak got another nice one, well done peaky.
well shite I'm feeling a little envious now, time to start planning one thinks.
good onya guy's
