Hi folks, Im based out of Fitzroy X for the next 6 months and thats put me in the heart of diamond country. Ive been doing a little reading up on prospecting methods and alot of people talk about sluicing. Just wondering if anyone has much experience in looking for diamond shutes and if anyone reckons it would be worth trying to use a dry blower and vacuum on the creek beds. Cheers.

I havnt done any fossicking for diamonds but seen a YouTube video of a fella who used jis pan in a creek. The heavies stayed in the center when agitated correctly enabling them to pick out the small gems.
Hope this helps
Cheers

Thanks mate, yeah from what ive heard its a tough game and all the diamond prospectors out here all eccentric mad old blokes and probs not members of this forum. Worth a crack anyhows, and a brief distraction from Halls Creek AU offerings.
