  1. It depends on a number of factors how long a "pegged" lease is pending. The native title process is usually the slow moving train. If the area has a native title determination (or even a NT claim pending) then it needs to go through the bureaucratic process which can take 6-8 months if you are lucky. In other areas where there is no NT established or extinguished, the pegging to live lease can be less than 10 weeks. I've got about 10 leases, I particularly like the 10 week ones... As Dave above says, its the same for everyone so I too go on pending leases. cheers BB
  2. Thanks Steve Trailblazing it is then ... I will try and do a "how to" post, will probably more a "how to not". Cheers BB
  3. Steve or others Would anyone know the actual batteries used (type/voltage etc) and the amount of batteries needed to change out the pack? Cheers BB
  4. Hello all I'm just wondering if anybody has taken a GPZ 7000 battery and replaced the (I'm guessing 18650??) cells? I have two battery packs both out of warranty and have some time on my hands at home due to bloody Rona. Stay safe Cheers BBB
  5. Here is my short story. A mate of mine has two of these. Puffed out chest, bleating on about how great they are, he's on all the vallon forums etc etc. Took him out to some mineralised ground (nothing super special) and let him rip. Well that lasted two minutes, the vallon did nothing but scream. He now has a 7000. The end. Cheers BB
  6. Mob boss, strip club owner and prospector (obviously). Nothing to see here, carry on. BB
  7. It's good to see Qantas and the hotel got my memo ........ I have no problems if you use Paul as a human shield ... Awaiting culling day proclamation, should be any day now, carry on. cheers BB
  8. Too flashy Paul. I just call it "Walking Gambling Disorder" WGD. The Oz version is "Swearing Walking Gambling Disorder" SWGD. DSM-5 Diagnostic Criteria: Gambling Disorder A. Persistent and recurrent problematic gambling behavior leading to clinically significant impairment or distress, as indicated by the individual exhibiting four (or more) of the following in a 12-month period: 1. Needs to gamble with increasing amounts of money in order to achieve the desired excitement. GPZ 7000 case in point... 2. Is restless or irritable when attempting to cut down or stop gambling. Like that will happen........... 3. Has made repeated unsuccessful efforts to control, cut back, or stop gambling. Yer right........... 4. Is often preoccupied with gambling (e.g., having persistent thoughts of reliving past gambling experiences, handicapping or planning the next venture, thinking of ways to get money with which to gamble). Ringing any bells? 5. Often gambles when feeling distressed (e.g., helpless, guilty, anxious, depressed). Code for not being on a patch.... 6. After losing money gambling, often returns another day to get even (“chasing” one’s losses). That patch is flogged, wait I'll go back one more time. 7. Lies to conceal the extent of involvement with gambling. I had to stay there honey, car trouble ....... 8. Has jeopardized or lost a significant relationship, job, or educational or career opportunity because of gambling. Becoming a small scale miner or leaseholder..... 9. Relies on others to provide money to relieve desperate financial situations caused by gambling. I'll pay you back with nuggets ....... B. The gambling behavior is not better explained by a manic episode. Specify if: Episodic: Meeting diagnostic criteria at more than one time point, with symptoms subsiding between periods of gambling disorder for at least several months. Beginning prospectors ..... Persistent: Experiencing continuous symptoms, to meet diagnostic criteria for multiple years. "Normal" prospectors.....
  9. Didn't miss ...... had you scoped the whole time. You wouldn't want to be here now, Hades is cooler. Mt Magnet/Meeka just had 17 days over 40C .... no fun. Cheers BB
  10. Oh Paul ........ Do we really need to play these games. 8am this morning, Meeka caravan park parked in front of the ablution block. Again - be afraid You're in my territory now. BB
  11. I thought you were a smart bloke. Congregating at the caravan park ....... like shooting fish in a barrel. Be afraid. BB
  12. Shot gun ready..... it's culling season.... the more the merrier... Have a good safe flight... Cheers BB
