Spent two months in the Clermont, Qld region this year.  Found this little beauty on a spur and it was only about an inch down (boom!!). I'm told it has 'herringbone' and 'chevron' features. I had found a 5.5 grammer a bit further up the hill earlier.

Thanks for your kind remarks.

Slimpickins- yep, I did think it was junk but the lack of it in the area made me check. Very Happy

Nightjar - neither had I, but it is the lines created in the gold that do. I googled it.

Willo - yes for sure, walking up to 8 km a day to find spots. I would find a couple of nuggets then nothing in the area. So frustrating. Lots of gullies.

Cheers
