Good looking gold, Dave. Half your luck. We didn't make it to WA this year as we have a very busy year. But we did get some time in swinging in Vic and Tibooburra to keep the withdrawal symptoms away.

Keep up the good work, love those pix of gold even if I do get a smidgon jealous.
Cheers, Jim

Thanks for your comments Detectist and granite2, yep just trying to encourage people to keep trying, it is getting less but still quite ok if you do the hard yards, and yes granite2 WA is a great place to be detecting, and I hope your year is going well.

228 gram specie with plenty of gold inside, about 18" to 20" deep, found with the 14" GPZ coil and the mighty 7000.



Not much showing on the outside but I reckon there is plenty on the inside by the way it overloads the sound signal on the detector

Thanks Peter, and the Hi-Viz was put in the cupboard for this outing, we had the Exploration holders permission for the area but it was so close to the road we didn't want others stopping in (you know), we even brushed out our tracks in to where we camped. Very Happy

Thanks Kon, I got an idea that the specie will end up in the dolly pot and get melted into a nice shiny bar like this when we get home.

Some of the digging that was involved in getting the 228 gram specie out of the hole.  Very hard going. Very Happy

After a bit of a clean up, 202 grams dry weight now and about 30 grams of gold I reckon, 135 grams wet weight. Laughing

Thanks Detectist, I thought I would give it a good clean up to see how it looked, it seems most of the gold is locked inside, so I might just have to free it in the dolly pot, and there are a line of others heading the same way, I reckon 2.5 to 3 ozs will be free from the confines of being rock bound in the end. Laughing

Nice one Dave, well done. According to your wet/dry weight calculations, I came up with 27 grams of gold in your specie. It be good to know the final outcome, if & when you happen to extract the gold out of it.

Thanks Kon, yes the SG calcs are a bit of an inexact science, it's just a bit of an indication I reckon, as you need to know the exact purity of the gold in the specie and the exact makup or the host rock and the temp and PH of the water and the elevation where the calcs are made. Like I say it's just an indication that there is a reasonable amount of gold somewhere inside. Laughing

Final outcome was just over 27grams plus some fines that were collected with mercury, so I reckon close to 28 grams in total.  Some other species were added and a gold bar weighing a bit over 44 grams is the result.

The result
