A Half Day At Tarnagulla

Recommended Posts


Nice Dave. You & I must be competing for the smallest gold finds with a Zed :rolleyes: Those zoomed up pics certainly bring those small bits to life. More so when some quartz is mixed in with the gold. Brings out the character.

Good luck out there

JW anybody can find multi ounce nuggets that are just laying around, but it takes real talent to find the point oners.. At least that`s what I keep telling myself. cheers Dave :smile:

Tarnagulla has never been kind to me either Dave. Best I ever scored there were a couple of sub ouncers years ago.

Dave: More Llanelly than Tarnagulla, but have a try around Black Ben reef and gully. Oodles of small gold there once and the Z cranked right up should find more.

Same applies to the reef heaps and upper parts of the gullies draining the Corfu Reef area.

PS: Don't tell anyone I told you though!  :biggrin:

Corfu brings back memories, I found a beautiful 1/4 oz further down the drainages just off the edge on some surfacing back in 1995. The piece was in red clay which just fell off when I put the nugget in water, leaving a bright polished piece of gold behind. Amazing place Victoria.

Certainly pretty gold at the Corfu, JP. One of Jim Stewarts favourite places and he found a lot of bits in the surfacings over the road from the dam. Got my last bit there (a 3 grammer) following the burn off a couple of years back.

It's another one of those areas where you were once sure to find something, having suffered a goldless day elsewhere :smile:

Speaking of Jim, Robyn is scanning his gold album over coming weeks and I'll be able to post it shortly.

Sorry to derail your topic Phoenix, feel free to reciprocate on mine any time you wish! :biggrin:
