Took a drive to Ophir on the weekend, nice day , no rain , was great.

didn't find much of interest except the usual array of bullets , shoe tacks and heaps of Hot Rocks varying in size from and egg to a watermelon.

has anyone else had any success there ?

I was going to do Hill end, but was undecided on which might have been the most flogged out.

Harb,
Even though Hill End is flogged, most seem to pick up a nugget or two when they go there. I have never tried Ophir, but it is on the list when the weather cools down.
Cheers,
Jig.

Plenty of crumbs at Ophir Harb. Going slow with an 8 inch mono coil listening for whispers is the go. There are bigger pieces around but they are far and few between and deep.

Hill End is hopeless, no gold, bad pub... would keep away from there.

Ophir is fine...the trick is to go as far as your 4x4 will take you then hop on your quad and go the rest of the way Went to Ophir on the weekend Icon_biggrin

A friend of ours pulled a .8 oz just under the top soil in the camping area, he wasnt even looking for the colour, didnt think it was gold untill he had it checked in sydney... there still good gold there.. just have to find it hehe
