Halls Creek

Post by wdgreg on Sat 09 Jul 2016, 10:38 am

Hi All,
i am looking at heading to halls creek, has anyone of late found gold above 4 grams in a single nugget. It sounds like all the finds are quite small.Like to hear of any members with any decent size finds.

cheers
Greg

Well maybe i have said the wrong thing here, sorry. A lot of members looked at this thread and either didn't won't to comment or are careful to not comment.
It is just a hope that there is some gold above 2g still being found.
Please also help as to which coil would be sweet there over all.
many Thanks
Greg

welcome to the forum greg, im assuming you are running a GPX. the elite 11 inch or 14 inch coil is a great addition to your arsenal. i have not detected up there but i hear a GPZ will kick butt and there is no reason you wont get bigger bits just detect new ground as any ground that is well known would probably only have small gold left. sorry i cannot help with much more info
cheers and good luck

Hi Greg,

check out GPA's vids on youtube, they have done tours around Halls Creek and it will give you an idea of what you are likely to find.

Thanks fella's , i have just checked out GPAs videos, interesting how the glory holes are formed up there and some contain multi ozs. Decaying greenstone seems to be the indicator on the ground there .
anyway thanks again
Greg

Well that's a new one to me you will have to send me the link as I haven't frequented that forum for years... I am not sure who you really are as well. I apologise in advance. Are you sure it was me I can't remember ever having a disagreement with anyone and voicing my opinions of it on a forum unless it was to do with Doug and his crowd or the occasional spat with JP and the deceased Chris Hake. Other than that I have absolutely no memory of any other person that I have had any words with, especially from Geraldton. I very seldom have attacked anyone on a personal basis and especially if you wasn't a member of the forum that could have posted something...

As I said send me a PM with the link and if possible I can see what I can do...

As for the above it was supposed to be a joke and nothing else...

Hi again, I just spent the last 2.5 hours going through every post of mine on Finders and cannot find any post where I mentioned someone that I was not replying to their messages.... So you will have to give me a heads up....

Hi Albo, I know the thread but never said anything bad about anyone only repeating what I had been told. That is so long ago and as mentioned it was gossip anyway. No problems glad it is sorted as I was more than a little disturbed as I try never to argue with anyone unless in a response to something they said.

Anyway for those interested in what I said this is the post in question just to verify that I did not say anything intentionally bad about anyone. I am acquainted with some of the "king" mob such as Wayne in Kalgoorlie who often chats with me.. Also it is mute now and I don't like to revamp a story when one of the named is now deceased namely "Kingy" may he rest in peace.

For what its worth Albo I think your gumboot idea is brilliant-I dig the midwest and the mulgas out there are big and mean-I normally wear full gumboots in summer but end up sploshing around in my own sweat by mid morning-sawn off gumbys above my hiking boots sounds the go as normal leggings annoy the hell out of me-Dragon
