I’ve been giving this place a good run over the last three weekends. You can not just wash a pan full of dirt, and expect to find a pan full of gold. Like every thing in life it’s a struggle. Effort equals reward.
Two days…. moving a lot of dirt.
As the photo shows…. there is gold there, if you are willing to work for it. That may be a sapphire between the two clunkers. Both sizeable pieces of gold come in at 0.2 grams each.
It’s the middle of Summer here in Brisbane, hot, and unpleasant, to be digging a hole. But that is the crazy hobby that I love so much. It’s such a rush to find a chunky piece of gold. I’ve been using my river sluice in “Deep Creek” to process more material. Cleaning up only after 8-12 buckets of dirt. Deep Creek has plenty of water to operate a river sluice.
It’s very nice to see small pieces of gold in the rubber V-mating, in front of the sluice. Drives you to push more material through your sluice. Last Sundays effort….
It looks like Queensland gold is as bright as ever. ( That big piece looks a bit like a map of Queensland. )
Thank you to everyone who reads and comments to my stories. Your feedback is welcome. Keep digging.
