G'day guys, just a quick hello and introduction. I am married and have two daughters (11 & 4), we currently live in Seymour, Victoria.

Recently a friend introduced me to the Gold Rush - Alaska series on the Discovery Channel and hence I have now somewhat caught the gold rush fever...

Having spent sometime as a child fossicking around the hills during the school holidays looking for various gems stones for his lapidary hobby, I have very limited knowledge and the dos and do nots of prospecting. I am not out there to make a fortune, just to have some fun with the wife and kids with the thrill of the hunt ore appealing to me more than the actual hunt.

Having said that, I would be lying if I said that it doesn't have some motivating factor. There are not too many hobbies if done right that have the ability to fund itself. Laughing

Anyways, we are planning a trip to Eldorado at the end of the month for a couple of days so here hoping to some fun times ahead.

Great hobby to get into, lots of learning, however feel sure you will find most of the answers here, if not just ask.

Welcome to the forum Kris.

at the moment the creek at eldorado is fairly high so you would be only able to pan the high ground but you should still find a little gold.
also remember it is flour gold there so it is fairly fine and easy to lose.

Good luck on your trip
