Thanks Dave and Paul.

I'm just basking in reflected glory here. Reg's lovely wife Jannine did all the slow tedious image scanning and Reg is a self confessed computer image upload agrophobe, hence my role.

Blue quartz specimens, northeast of Wedderburn. Weight forgotten. On a personal note, of all Reg's gold, these lovely specimen pieces are easily my favourites. This image copy has almost lost the beautiful blue colour.   cyclops

The big coils from an earlier time, the old Datsuns you might even say a generation ago but some of you are still out there finding the big chunks.  When do you think Reg first started finding gold?  Who was his mentor?

When did you find your first nugget?

Very nice to see JR. Thanks again for the effort in putting up this post, the pics & the info. I know it isn't the first time you have done it. Glory days they were indeed. What memories.....

Good luck out there

Thanks JR for the pics and your words in the other thread regarding my triumph over cancer. And speaking of triumph it was that photo of Reg with that nugget in the GG & T magazine that inspired me with my 1st detector the GT16000 which if I am correct was the same detector that located that particular nugget.
