ironbark trees???? I have just read an article in the minelab times and it mentions ironbark trees...........could anyone shed any light on why the presence of ironbark trees would be an indicator of gold bearing ground?

could it be that ironbark is more prevalent in gold areas because it likes to grow in that kind of mineral soil which contains gold? Very Happy

I have had considerable success finding nuggets in the vicinity of Ironbark trees in Victoria and Queensland. I find them a useful indicator.
