G'day all,

Well, after what seems like an eternity. I managed to snag this little tacker last week. I only seem to be able to get out during the School Holidays these days. As life keeps getting in the way. I reckon its been six months between nuggets.

It went .85

These two went 29 and 22 grams. They were found by a nice bloke who headed back to his camp to retrieve them for my 2 sons and I to drool over.
He has only been detecting for three months and were found with a Z.
The 29 gram piece was found at 18" and were found 4 mtrs apart.

They were great to hold. The hand in the photo is my 9 year old sons (for a size reference)

Cheers,
NG.

Wedderburn caravan Park, a nice Irish bloke, found about a month ago?  We had been hoping he would find something worth talking about.  Day after day he would leave at 7am and detect in the cold, returning for a warm shower in the afternoon, finally he found 2 for 51 grams, everyone was so happy for him because he really paid his dues before the nuggets turned up.

Yep, spot on llanbric. And here I was thinking he was Scottish Shocked Laughing
Definitely a top bloke. He rolled into our camp for a chat and was pretty keen to show us.
On his return, after showing the three of us. He hung around for a bit of a chat too.

How did you go up in Wedderburn? Hopefully you did better than me Very Happy

Hi NatGeo, I've just remembered his name is Jim, nice bloke from Kangaroo Island.


My wife and I dislike caravan parks, we normally park our van in the bush somewhere, 3 years ago we decided to stay at the Wedderburn caravan park for one night, which turned into 2 months, there is something about the place and the fellow prospectors around the fire at night.   I've seen some good sized, freshly dug nuggets there but it's mostly subgrammers, we have really only have just covered our beverage costs for each stay.  I was onto deepish possibly good ground when an old shoulder rotator cuff tear played up seriously so I had to pack it in.  Wedderburn (like anywhere else) needs plenty of patience and dedicated detecting, and luck.

NeoGeo, 0.85 grams is pretty good these days and I would be happy to find a few of them every time I went out.
Those big nuggets are a delight to see even if you didn't find them, great eye candy for us prospectors.

Regards Axtyr.
