What's your best find in an old shaft or adit

Post by shane-o on Mon 30 Jan 2017, 6:41 pm

Rightho so who else likes to crawl into old tunnels, adits or down dodgy old mine shafts just in case the old timers missed the motherlode by a couple of inches. What's your best find out of one of these old diggings? I haven't been in a lot yet only a couple and still have found nothing but it's quite an experience. Here's a video of my last adventure into an old tunnel.

Well most times prospectors with shafts are called liars with a hole in the ground , this year i have some friends that expanded on a small reef that was dug & have18 kg so far , work in progress & blokes that need & deserve it , aint that great.

All pegged ligit , it will probly develop into an open cut with a working mine 70 km or so away, do a deal. Rich as buggery visible in sugary quartz. Yep reckon they wont need a day job again .. 3 in it
