location info needed

Post by wandwaver on Wed 08 Jun 2016, 7:51 pm

We were stopped for the night at Karalundi a few weeks back on our way north. That afternoon a couple of vehicles came in and we got to talking to the men. They said they had just spent a month in the golden triangle out there but no further info came up. Can anyone enlighten me on the location of the golden triangle they spoke of. I know it was not the Victorian one. Thanks

Ok i spose, from karalundi heading north you wil find a major track to the left ,west , if you proceed further along the bitumen north you will see another left which is the peak hill road, the previous one is known as the old disused peak hill road.so both these roads head west & join eventually to form a triangle. Many old patches in there & some very large ones came up, round 2006 maybe Don hemfrey found a 368 oz 90 oz & other large bit shallow in a creek, last time i visited the perth mint it was on display there. Out holdens way that was. Good luck mate , sparse tho & big area.

Just getting back to the triangle area , its been 7 or so years since ive been out that way & Doray and others are active round the area now so it would pay to check the latest lease status before you go detecting up there, its not as free & easy as it was , cheers albo.

Geeezzz Albo, I nearly fell off my chair when I was checking out the forum after getting home from France yesterday & there is a picture of the cave, brought back a lot good memories wandering around that area when we found it in 98 & we picked up close on 100 Ozs, exciting times aye. Terral & I will be going bush in a few weeks straight after the election but not sure where to yet, it's getting harder every year. I'll give you a call later & catch up on the goss.
Cheers from Steve & Terral.

G'day Pete, Albo
                       Geez I thought we might have found your secret cave, but not to be. Found this cave on our last trip complete with old kero fridge, would have been a good camp back then.

Also kev its only a spot if you happen to be in that area , not worthy of a special trip. When the 1 / 250 maps were it the old timers workings in there werent marked which made it quiet for a long time , as soon as the 1/100 ones came out theres been many , tours the lot.

G'Day Albo,
good to see you back on the forum, no mate wasn't looking for your spot just remembered the Pics Pete put up a few weeks before we went away and I found this cave and thought it was your old camp, looked simular. Anyway Albo all good down this way, gold price is keeping my job secure at moment, saw 2 new Cat 793's on Great Northern with Roy Hill stickers heading north so the iron ore must be hanging in there. Whats happening up in Telfer, have they started up the open pit or still underground?

Cheers Kev
