G’day everyone.

Although it was considerably windy yesterday, it was nice and cool, so I headed out to Talbot. Thankfully the wind was blowing above the trees most of the time but the drizzle in the morning made it considerably annoying.

I tried 2 areas without success and about 11:30 I decided to take a drive while having lunch. I found some very nice looking spots and eventually parked.

10 metres from the car I got a good signal and proceeded to dig. It didn’t take long to locate the pellet but I ran the coil once more over the hole and there was still a signal. I could have left it as it was obviously another pellet but I dug anyway. Lo and behold I unearthed a 0.85 gram piece. Nice and chunky.

The rest of the day was spent digging more pellets and rubbish until I got another good signal, but rather broad. I kept digging but it didn’t get much louder. I had already dug up a tree root and a big hole containing lots of mineralisation so I was sceptical. I widened the hole and it had finally dislodged. Another nice piece of 0.6 gram. Almost fully encased in hardened clay.

So that made my day. 2 pieces I could quite easily have walked away from but didn’t. Hopefully some more cool weather coming our way soon.

Regards Axtyr.

Well done Axtyr. All signals no matter how faint or loud, must be thoroughly investigated or there's a chance of leaving gold behind. No surrender, no retreat. Q35 cheers
