Started my last trip off near Chewton a great detecting field with lots of history, but the morning was spent mostly filling recently dug holes than digging gold but still managed these for 1.6 grams: Driving around the old goldfields! Chewton Newstead Maryborough P1010052_zps179c4fc3It's very important not to leave any holes open in this area and fill any you find because this park is currently under review and will most likely be closed to detecting soon due to a small minority!

Next on to Newstead where I noticed a few locals out and about in their state forest.........dumping rubbish. Got these before moving on from the local tip 1.1g & 0.1g: Driving around the old goldfields! Chewton Newstead Maryborough P1010051_zps974285ac

Next up the road to good old reliable Maryborough for the night where I extended the edge of a little patch 1.74g & a 1.82g iron specimen.Driving around the old goldfields! Chewton Newstead Maryborough P1010053_zpsc4f32375 Redshirt

Nice gold Redshirt and a good report thanks mate. I drive through Newstead a lot heading to Castlemaine and Melb. and have thought to myself many a time that I should hit this area but never have. I don't think I would even know were to start. All I know it was a gold field but you can not see anything from the road.
