  1. 2.2 Lbs Of Gold Found In Man's Butt

    I can see the poor bloke is going to be the butt of a lot of shitty jokes for a while to come
  2. 2.2 Lbs Of Gold Found In Man's Butt

    I'd be too afraid to fart lest you snap your O ring
  3. I know a bloke with a nice GRB 777XL that would make short work on those species Dave. Top bloke too...handsome and single to boot! You still in WA or back east?
  4. Bye Bye Dolly Pot

    Thanks fellas, yeah I put about 60kg through a mates one the other week and was picking out gold balls caught up in the screen with a nail. But it sure as hell beats days on end of pounding in the dolly pot.
  5. Bye Bye Dolly Pot

    ahh species I'll still probably sodomize in the dolly pot but this will make short work of the 'other stuff'
  6. Yep, you never really know a person until you marry them or detect with them
  7. A Nugget Here & A Nugget There

    Have to agree about the 19". The more you use it the more it grows on you, plus the lighter it seems to get each day
  8. What To Do When The Weather Sucks?

    Staring through a loupe till I go blind Dave. Can see fine gold in some and nothing in other stuff.
  9. What To Do When The Weather Sucks?

    Hi Ash, Loved the small crusher, I trialled it but haven't bought one yet. It may not be big enough for the amount of material I might have (hopefully) but I'll probably get one anyway. I did crush a stack in it's bigger brother but was not happy with the screen size on that one (1.5mil) I want to get it as close to powder as possible. I do have a Keene crusher but it's off getting a new motor on it at the moment and not sure when I'll have it back. Yep the Falcon worked well and it was probably my lack of experience with it. It was loaned to me so I didn't get to play with it for too long.
  10. What To Do When The Weather Sucks?

    Hi JW. Ran a Falcon probe through the hole plus through a tub of about 60kg of rock and got a fair few bits out that signalled plus stand alone tiny nuggets. The probe was great but too finicky and hard to know if it was signalling on gold or mineralization. I haven't had a great deal of experience with the Falcon and it was a loan job. Have no access to a GB or Monster. For now I'll just chase the reef and what's directly against it and whack the whole lot through the crusher testing along the way.
  11. What To Do When The Weather Sucks?

    21grs from about 5kg of rock sample with no signals or visible gold, hope the rest is like this
