The SDC 2300 only finds shallow fly shite.. (Oh Really!!)

First topic message reminder :

Well, that seems to be the general concensous on these great machines that you hear around the traps.
And they dont even go anywhere near deep enough to have a chance at a decent weight.
Ive gotta say a big "Bullsh!t" to both of the above comments.

Went out for the weekend with my lovely fellow scratcher "Rie", Back to our old haunt, we've both been doin
really well on that patch with our two SDC's, and it's no secret patch, just one that we call our 2nd home in the GT.
So far we have pulled well over 350 bits off that flogged 100x200 bit of ground but nothing to really write home about, just ya
usual smallish SDC stuff with the odd coupla grammer like below

Anyways, this time there, was to be like no other, sure it all started out the same Very Happy  Arrive at our camp, grab a coldie and have a gander over the place, see if anyone else has been in there since our last time.
Set up the swag, get the lighting sorted, bite to eat then settle in for a good few more drinks before riggin up and
actually starting to prospect   cheers lol!

We pulled a few up to 1.5 grams over the Sat/Sunday then Rie says, lets take monday off work and stay one more day Very Happy
And it took me 1 second to agree with her, so Monday morning comes, we rig up and i lead her a few hundred metres
through the scrub to some good looking ground i'd sussed out the day before and wanted to have a swing on.

15 minutes into it and Bang!  i got the first one, next Rie starts pullin a few and i go over to show her me latest
bit to keep the juices flowin
I walked back over to where i dug that last one and within 10 feet i got that lovely mellow drop tone that we all
live for eafgh fhsdfg  now to the diggin wegr

18 inches later in chocolate brown wash with no sign of bedrock yet i reached down into the hole to scoop out
the loose stuff, all the time thinkin " this is probably another busted off pick end" and stone the flamin crows Shocked
i see that lovely glint lookin back at me, so i wipes off more dirt and ohhhhh man was it a nice nugget cheers

I re buried it and called Rie over and said "stick ya coil in the hole" Razz
Scrape it out i says hahahaha
Shoulda seen her face when the gold showed up cheers lol!
