We have decided to have a yearly cull of eastern staters (this includes all international tourists). Just a one day cull on a random day to be designated by the state government. So you could run the gauntlet, come here and have a fun time. Many though will  just be unlucky and be out there on the culling day....... How do we recognise them you ask? Easy, any caravan with QLD, NSW, VIC, SA and NT plates are fair game. Oh and any idiot chaining an entire football field will be dealt with harshly.

Come to WA, prospect, enjoy - but live in fear. I like the idea.

Cheers

The big day is tomorrow... as I have not only run into the weekend, but a holiday on Monday!

... will talk with Minelab Tuesday tomorrow... and see if they can sell me a box only... God only knows if I didn't pack mine or it fell out in customs....

What ever way that goes... it will go.... then it takes a few days to ship...

So this week Nordic will let me use his Sdc...as long as he can chain it to my leg before I go out in the morning.... lol

The detector will be shipped  to norvics place while we are away for the week...

No use sitting around any longer..... they do not participate in overnight shipping here..lolol...

And after we return , we are grabbing the boat and heading down to the hut to catch a bara  or two ... I have found that bara fishing will sometimes trump detecting. !!!!

  (Here's what I am learning so far, and its a tough learn!... "When in Rome.........)"

Good day ...

      Two of us made the 5 day trip from eastern OZ to the Western Australian goldfields for a 8 week detecting trip.(armed with 7000,s and SDC)
      We targeted remoter spots that are not really on the radar. We invested in a pile of permits and researched lots of available ground spots. Lots of walking and lots of barren gullies and creeks...... but  occasionally we found the odd gully or slope not touched by a detector that yielded some nice runs of gold. We went 50/50 with our finds, sharing is the way to get a bigger tally when 2 or 3 of you (of equal ability) spread out searching large areas. All up we shared 45 ounces between two of us. There are many ugly specimens not pictured and we will have a big crush and smelt day soon. Cheers RDD

      “Australia’s all-time record annual gold production (314 tonnes) … might well be exceeded*,” said Dr Sandra Close, from mining consultancy* Surbiton.

      A comment I made on Jins post recently reminded me of how easy it is to walk over good sized gold.
      We are all familiar with the horrible loud screams detectors make over big surface targets. Sometimes the cause is obvious, usually surface rubbish such as a visible piece of tin or squashed beer can.
      Occasionally, when walking paddocks (which I mostly do) it turns out to be something useful, such as a lost spanner or fuel cap from a tractor - I have even found a grease gun lying concealed in the grass. These items I always return to the grateful landowner.
      More commonly, however, it is something useless like an old horseshoe, worn out cultivator point and/or the sheared bolts which once held it to the plough tyne. After digging a number of these the temptation to keep walking (with ears still ringing) becomes ~almost~ irresistible.
      Back in the Minelab SD2200 days I had permission to work a large Victorian property located on the Tarnagulla granite pluton to the north of Dunolly. This had a number of unworked shallow Tertiary palaeochannels crossing it, on one of which I located a 7 oz patch. Mostly the gold was smallish and reasonably deep, but the same location was also littered with shallow shotgun shells. These were very loud and nearly drove me nuts, and in my frustration I ignored one outlier - - -
      Fast forward a number of years and, armed with later technology  (GPX4000) I decided to check the patch once more and - - - WHUMP/SCREAM - - - greeted my ears over that same target.
      I kicked the dirt in annoyance -  and then spotted the 70 grammer I had ignored years earlier:
       

       
      I had foolishly made the assumption that all the gold in that patch was deep and small, therefore loud shallow targets had to be junk - overlooking the possibility that something once deep could have been ploughed to the surface - - - I kept it to remind me of the old detecting maxim: "Dig your targets"
