    Refer to rule No.1 mate, must be an expert on the dolly pot and pan before being promoted to professional tools 😉

    Gee that’s a flash lookin rig Paul, unfortunately you will have to leave it behind if you come out with me, looks just like a claim jumper setup 😂
  3. Big bits travel further around here, all the big species I get are always in the creek furtherest from the source.

    They are professional tools Paul, you need to do your apprenticeship on the dolly pot and pan first!

    Thanks Bhogg, yeh that’s the same bloke roddosnow posted about above. Most of his seemed to be little nuggety bits, that’s why I asked the question on disseminated gold. He seems to do ok on those bits though!

    Thanks JW, have used a falcon probe , not really my cup of tea, a bit too small and fiddly.

    Best Detector For Quartz Reefs

    Thanks for the replies guys 👍. Will be great to try out a monster and 800 together Paul, I have the perfect spot 😉. Has anyone been getting disseminated species with the monster? Most of the bits I’ve seen online are tiny bits but chunky, the stuff I’m working has no chunks but loads of fines.
  8. Hi all, I haven’t really been keeping up with the multitude of new vlf detectors that have came out over the last couple of years. Is there a new preferred detector for working quartz reefs? Or does everyone still use the gmt and goldbug? Thanks
  9. That’s why it’s very important to accurately mark all finds in my opinion. There is one area in WA where after mapping for 2 years we worked out basically all nugget patches where between 600 and 650m elevation. Most other areas are more line of strike over here, and not altitude. But it did work very well in that one area. I have heard lots of theories over the years, there was one dude who always went to the south west side of ridges, his theory was that was the way the glaciers retreated. Each to their own, it’s whatever works I reckon.

    Should There Be An Off Topic Forum?

    My favourite part about this forum is that it stays on topic.

    16" Nuggetfinder Avantage Coil

    Still the main coil I use on the 5000. I use it on purpose when pushing to try and leave some tiddlers for the dryblower, bloody thing does a good job of stealing it all still!
  12. For those that don't know, we have a permit system here in Western Australia that lets fossickers access your large exploration tenements to metal detect for gold. Honestly I have never really liked the system because it basically lets the department sub let my lease, and no one ever fills out the form where they are obligated to tell you where the finds were ( Its very hard to find nugget patches if all the surface gold is gone). I have had over 50 people camped on that lease this year and not a single one has returned the form to notify of finds despite dig holes everywhere. Except 1 , I received a form back today from a couple of yanks , I think they were from Nevada. Reported all there finds with weights and coordinates, with a thank you note. Now that's how it should be done! I think the other 48 Aussies who were there could definitely learn a few things from the only 2 honest blokes out there. If they are members here or anyone knows a couple of Nevadans that were over here let them know they are more then welcome to come back with free access to all my tenements.

    Bye Bye Dolly Pot

    15hp petrol just mangles chunks mate, no stopping her once she is going. I have also stopped the little electric ones though with chunks of gold.

    Bye Bye Dolly Pot

    Nice mate, I got one of those too, she's a real beast! Be very careful when removing the screen to clean it, there will be heaps of little gold balls sitting on it 😉

    Nurse Paul In Oz

    I got a mate in Cairns who makes the trip quite often, will ask him which way he recommends. Pretty sure he came across through Broken hill and across the nullabour last time, but the Great Central road past the big rock may be the most interesting for a tourist. Dave is full of it too, everyone knows all the big gold is in north qld 😀 That's why he's never been here, too much over there! P.S Your always welcome as well Dave, double bed in the Meekatharra Hilton! We can sit up at the boozer while Paul loads the dryblower 😉
