Received an email from Regis Resources tonight concerning an increase in sightings of wild dogs and two close call incidents over the last few weeks.
As of tomorrow an intensive baiting and track 'em and whack 'em program will start between King of Creation mine and Garden well mine on the Erlistoun / Bandya boundary.

Also, due to some numpty flapping his gums in the Laverton van park "if my dog takes a bait I'll shoot the station owner" the new station owners are exercising their right and from now on no dogs are permitted on Erlistoun station without prior written consent.

Sorry folks, not my doing blame it one idiot and his big mouth.

G'day Steve, Must say for my couple of months plus out in the goldfields I haven't seen/heard so many wild dogs before, Almost every night/morning you hear them, Seen plenty wandering around but luckily had no encounters of a bad kind with them. Lot's of wild dogs out there !  The baiting programs don't seem to be doing much to dent the numbers.

Cheers

Ashley

Are these coyotes or what? Never seen wild dogs in the US? Do they attack people?

tvanwho,  I may seem confusing at first because he said this was happening in WA. But WA is not Washington State, it is Western Australia. They don't have Coyotes there.

Sorry Tvan, yep WA Australia, I post it here as this forum is frequented by a lot of Aussies, many who visit WA.

 

Ashley, two really good wet seasons in a row has allowed them to breed up.

The big wets have also reduced the effectiveness of the baits, couple that with some rather slack or next to non existent baiting programs and you have a problem.

Two attacks on people last year in my area and one was a pretty severe mauling. So far this year two close call incidents at the mines reported, plus I had a couple of run in this year also.

      They start off here.   Then they look like this.  Then after the dolly pot they look like this.  And the fines from the crushings.  The end result

      I have seen a bit of Aussie NQ activity on here so am reaching out! What rock type is this?! and does it mean much?!!! A new first for me this last few days with 'gold in rock'…hard rock - "t-shirt around the pick handle" type of rock! It didn't look like your standard conglomerate…but after breaking up bits there was quartz throughout….great sounds with the 7000…i'm sure i must've flung the best sounding piece of gold off into the wee of the never never with the damn pick cause another booming sound was there one swing then not the next!  Picked up a couple of little speckies from the rock and just tonight dollied a few offcutts with very fine gold present, yay! The pics aren't great but show the rock on the side of a river. Have added a pic of the gold pieces i picked up last two days from the patches i'm keen to run the 19inch over (from a previous post)…i keep saying they have dried up but with persistence they pay!!! Happy days out of reception. Giddiup

      I did the annual 5 and a half day drive from east oz to the Pilbara area in western Australia for 8 weeks prospecting with a friend. Floods earlier in the year scoured the creeks out and that helped, but a lack of natural fires meant many places are covered in thick spinifex  giving you only about 10% of the ground to detect on.  We managed 23 ounces between us, which was not brilliant considering we know a fair few places from earlier trips. But the trip, scenery, camping and people we met made the annual trip something great and I can't wait for the dry winter WA prospecting season to start each year. Some of the gold...hundreds of nuggets were sub grammers, my best was a 76 gram flatty found at about 26 inches down with the 19 coil. My favourite piece is the squashed leaf gold nugget with little pyramidal gold crystals on its surface. cheers RDD
      Ps. I hope to visit the US and take in the scenery/people......and detect a couple nuggets from some of your iconic goldfields one day.
