latest trip

Post by Stingray on Thu 01 Sep 2016, 8:31 pm

I thought you might like to see a couple of photos of some gold a mate and I found recently over a 4 week trip.

Two piles from two areas for about 250g of gold.  

My share is in my hand. The one in the middle is 75g with about 70g gold in it based on SG test, the solid at top right is 28g, the bigger specie has about 16g and the other about 10g also based on SG tests. There's a chunky 5g solid there as well that came from a creek that is pretty special to me.

I was stoked to get the 70 grammer, a real soft inverted signal in old wash. Down about 2/3 of a pick handle. It was all red coloured when I pulled it out. I have just cleaned it up with a toothbrush and ultrasonic bath to show up a bit of colour - I really like the look of old gold. The specie at bottom left was about 10ft from the big one but has been in acid. The solid was also deep and a soft inverted signal, but it was in the bank of a creek hence so shiny, and it hasn't been in acid.

By the way I mainly used a 14 x 9 NF evo - very nice coil.

Cheers
