Not far off the 2oz mark for this year,haven’t been out as much this year and done a trip to Scotland metal detecting,never found the gold hoard that you read about in the papers,but was a bucket list to do.
When the forecast predicts 45c,that’s when I say no,44c I will still go out leave early and detect till mid day before it gets too hot

43 today 44 plus tomorrow...but we are doing a lot of processing work at the moment...start early and finish early.
Al I need to do is find someone to work for nothing to take my place and I can stay in bed.

5oz sounds to me like a good haul for the year especially at today’s prices, what was your biggest piece for the year if you don’t mind me asking.
Mine would only be a couple of grams,I will get back to you on that one.
honestly I aim for an ounce a year, like my tax return, I hope to get $1000 back every year and anything more is a bonus, I just love to being in the bush away from everyone and everything, no worries no dramas, to me that is worth more than the gold I find, it’s my happy place.

We wouldn't have made an ounce for the year between us but hopefully next year will be better when we head over to the West again. Haven't been the last couple of years. Didn't go to Tibooburra either and we don't do much in Victoria so there are the reasons for a very small amount of the lovely yellow stuff.

Thanks guys.  It was harder work this year and did a lot of new areas trying to find a patch so quite a few days of nothing. The hills and gullies are challenging in Clermont QLD but best part was I lost 5 kg in a bit over 2 months. Very Happy
