Is Graytown worth a look ? ,cant seem to find much info on the electric interweb regarding nuggety gold and detecting in the area. mt black flora reserve is now a national park so im told is detecting allowed in these areas.
Any info would be grouse

Hi Angus,

There doesn't appear to be much shallow ground to detect. There's a lot of deep shafts everywhere.
Hope this helps.

G'day Angus.

Although most of the main gold workings were in and around Spring Creek,Shiraz is right in saying that,most the area around Graytown is deep ground (heavy mining and deep shafts).Also most creeks and gullies around Graytown run north/south,which aren't really good trappers of gold in slate bars.However,after saying all this, check out some of the heads of feeders,which run east and west along Spring Creek (North of Graytown,on the road heading to Whroo).


Cheers kon61.

Greytown was known as the 40 foot diggings so you will have to find shallow ground!

...just wondering how Angas went in Graytown area.....and also wondering if he managed to stay out of those holes!
All I have managed to find in several visits detecting is heaps of trash in that area....the old POW camp is chockers with rusty iron and barb wire pieces and bits from the original huts etc etc...I wonder how much Gold the German prisoners of the Kormoran, which sank the ill fated and tragic HMAS Sydney,... managed to find and stash in their 4 odd years there....digging their way down and not out...<not that there was anywhere to go if they had dug out>..Hoo Roo.
