Last trip for the season ( I think )

Post by Peaky on Wed 23 Sep 2015, 3:05 pm


Long weekend coming so Packing up the new camper and heading for the Gold again

Hitting a old area with hopes of some bigger bits with the Elite coil and the 4500:cheers:

When I say old we found this spot about 4 years ago and have been back 3-4 time with gold on each occasion

This time I hope with the Elite coil I can ping some bigger bits in the deeper ground l;wfh

I will let you know when we get back

Just a small crew on this one but all good operators kwdf kwdf

Heading off first thing Friday morning with the rest heading off Saturday

all the best peaky

and yes i'm wishing i was there believe me.

glad i did pull the pin as things have been out of control again just in the last couple days, i need to be here although my anger issues don't really help. jhgigfif

i hope there's plenty on the fresh ground for you and the crew, if not Fred may have left a few on the patches

just spare a thought for me on Saturday and Monday while your digging nugget's and i'm throwing rocks in a wall, actually add Sunday as well if i pull up ok after the kanga's v eagles game sat night.

GO THE ROO'S hahaha

cheers

Well we had a great trip apart from the Fly's

We all got gold from the old patch and found a new patch to boot but just too hot to work it

All up we got around 40 bits for the 3 days

I did manage to get a small bit at about 5-6 inches with the Elite

The patch we camped on had another group camped there for a few days and chained the crap out of the area ( Before we got there )
Only problem was they were the wrong side of the tree line So close
They had walked past the scrapes 2-3 times but of all the chain marks We did not see any dig holes
There would have been at least a days work chaining the area with no Holes HAHA
Why would you put in that much work if you are not finding anything ???

Anyway all good for us

Peaky

Good one Peaky,sounds like a good trip to wind up the season with and 40 bits is nothing to sneeze at.
Some times when I come accross an area which is chained the general feeling is that they have got it all,but it just goes to show you to still give it a go.
Jase,you must be really biting at the bit to get away again as its been a while since I have heard any reports of trips away.It will happen buddy and hopefully that big one is still growing and getting bigger out there for ya.

Cheers

Was tough by one of the best Mate
Fred was not on this trip he was in Singapore

It was hard work in the heat but there was a few cold cans in the arvo and into the night
We were going from 6 am till at least 10 pm with the detectors so we put the time in on the ground
If you work hard and swing the coil the spoils should come your way ( If you are in the right area )

Took Tom to a old scrape on the edge of the Road and he pinged about 8 bits in 45 minutes
Then I told him to get back into the car I had seen enough
Found some nice Virgin ground we can hit next season we pinged 3-4 bits for about 1/2 hour swing but it was in a gully with no air movement so too hot
There will be more in the area and now I think I have unlocked the ground we need to be looking at for this area so Google Earth for the Summer and Mark the areas
