    Gold - and getting out bush with good mates
  1. Yeah, never actually been for a swing at Avoca but always wanted too after a bloke years ago told me a few tales Mainly done the top of the GT in the past and done ok up that way so it'll be good to walk some new dirt, bit sick of the WA dry bush and megga distances "1200 km" or more round trip to have a swing ... Good luck out there Roo Bein close to Avoca area puts ya in some good areas thats for sure Pete
  2. Nice Slugs there Roo Some top piccies too mate and yeah that wallaby is the fatest ive ever seen. That surfaced area looks real familiar to me, reckon ive been around the area many years ago in your pics above, nice lookin country that is.. Pete

The gold still makes me quiver, and so does me new Lady Love iv'e found. Lovely Gal from Vic Aus and she also has the passion for geo/gold so its a win win for us both Now to spend a few days catching up on all your posts on here, bet there's been some unreal gold found by you lot 41c here today so it's beers and forum day.

  6. Next time 2Toms, we all get skunked now n then but at least you got to head out for the day with dad and chance your luck HH Pete PS reccomend the lucky diapers next trip for good luck hahaha
  7. G'day Jeff Just to follow on from Robs Post on pinpointers, the main reason i use a pinpointer is to acurately locate a deep nugget. Many times on a deep dig you will go past the target thats hiding in the side wall of your hole and dig in the hardpack for no reason, the pinpointer saves heaps of digging in this scenario. Pete
  8. Steve, your spot on there about the over inflated prices on plastic crappy throw ins. Kelly Co have a Tardy name over here in Oz also. Be like buying a ML from a chinese Ebay dealer
  9. Good onya Tom, hope dad got a couple also. Pete
  10. Well done Lucky & Doc, and yeah they are a red hot little sniffer coil Another "Must have" is the 17x11 NFA now there's a nice piece of kit and worth every $$ too. Pete
  11. Thanks Tom, great video mate and again a lovely nugget as reward Pete
  12. Nice haul there Tom and Pops, love that flat gold mate... BTW your video link wouldn't work for me Tom ? Pete
  13. Well, it was damn hot up at Cue over last weekend, could only detect from 4.30am through to 11am (43c) and at it's peak in the arvos it was 48c haha did we drink cold beers ? you bet but only after the main heat was gone, rest of the time it was water. Not a lot of gold was got with 13 small nuggies to me, and my mate Pete got 7 and Johnno got 4 i think. Time for a break in the cool for a month i reckon and then get back out there.. Carms - I also found a nice little leader last season and after detecting the top of it at 12 inches i cheselled off the cap specimen stone and re buried it and way pointed it, might get back this season and jackhammer it out, there's a bloke up in Meeka that has a small mill and will put a crush through for ya.. Pete
  14. Couple of beauties there Local Digger Pete
  15. Cheers Carms Ya gotta get your hands on that "Natures Botanical" fly cream mate, it's the Only thing that actually gets rid of all flys, the Leo Information shop has it $22.. For sure Carms would be great to catch up mate and have a scratch.. Looking like 42c - 44c this week up at Cue, i'll be doing the siesta in the arvo and then working it up until 1 or 2 am like usual in the summer.. Pete
