Group Dig.

I’ve had a couple of inquiries about what has been going on lately, no new posts.

Simple answer…. nothing new or exciting has happened. It’s all been rather boring really. Nothing worth talking about in the gold finds. My take home amounts have been horribly small or nonexistent.

On the first of July I participated in a group dig at the Gympie fossicking area. The day was organized on “Gympie Gold Fossicking” page on Facebook.

A cold morning, with a hint of frost on the ground. But the temperature climbed to a nice warm morning. There was an impressive turnout, with 22 people putting in an appearance.


The new people to gold digging, got some instruction and the experienced hands got pleasant company for the day. There were a few notable people there and all had a good time ( the admin from the Facebook page, Dustin from Gold Rat high bankers ).

Notable finds for the day….. 4 pickers, one Quartz and gold specimen and one fully terminated Quartz Crystal. Plus whatever fine gold turned up in sluices and gold pans.

A day that needs to be repeated, sometime in the future.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMy bit of color for the day.

About ivoradventures

Lives Brisbane north. Age 47. Male. Interests-heaps of stuff. Camping, fishing, and gold panning, keeps me quite busy. I still find time to cook,and spend time family and friends. I truly enjoy my daughters company(Shannon), but don't see enough of her since she moved out. There is a certain type of beauty that exists only in the wild places, and it calls to you. Go and explore! And drag someone with you.

    I really appreciate your entries as it brings back happy memories and at the age of 79 with early dementia your entries are a God send. Thanks again
