Glad to hear about it being found thanks for the update!

Just so glad that no Kangaroo didn't pick it up and run through a major city with it. That would have been very bad for the kangaroo. He would have been put on the no fly list and branded a terrorist for sure.

Just kidding.

😋  It was detected (hear that Minelab) at least 2 meters off the road from a vehicle travelling at 67 Km/hour from the road. I want the gold version of their detector. 🤑

Note 4 of the capsules can sit on a 10¢ Aus or a $¼ US

It was found not too far from its starting point. so much for expert packaging and transfer.😡

WA Emergency Services Minister Stephen Dawson said it was found about 50 kilometres south of Newman this morning. The complete trip was 1400 Km   More info.

I'll be interested reading the results of the investigation.  Normally (as in 'always') this would be kept inside a heavy container -- lead lined box or bowling ball size container of iron, etc..  What the hell, was it just sitting on the flatbed of a truck, bouncing around?  Maybe it was in someone's pocket and they stopped to take a leak....  Now people can argue whether the 6000 or 7000 would be better at finding it.  😎
