Post  Guest on Tue Jan 04, 2011 10:35 pm

G'day Ladies and Gents,
I went out detecting the other day to an area not far from my place and found a great big hole left unfilled, it was right in the middle of a well used track and was about 2.5 feet deep. I have seen many a hole unfilled but this one really stirred me up, so "PLEASE FILL IN YOUR HOLES" !!! Even if you are having a bad day you always need to think positive, thinking that will always make you feel better at the end of the day even if it was a bad one... sunny

Cheers,
uncle bob. sunny

Don't the idiots know that if they leave the holes visible their patch is also visible and encourages other to their spot? There are many prospector riding looking for other peoples spots.

Hi All,

A case in point, we dug 430+ nuggy's and a friend dug 130+ from a salt lake patch and with the first big rains they have all disappeared, it didn't take any effort to fill in the holes(mind you it did nothing to hide the fact that we had dug something as the red mud stood out on the white salt)but now we have a clean slate to work on.

We have a semi proffesional working from the Park and his holes are filled in ...always and compacted down to boot, again no effort if you dig it you fill it in, simple really.

It is amazing as to number of people who do not fill in their holes!!!, com'on people lift your game(New Years resolution...i must fill in our detector holes at all times)

Ron

PS:I got 1.6gr.-7 nuggs with my first trip for the new year..."go 2011"(salt lake)

G'day gents.

It greatly saddens me to see the beautiful forests of Victoria,littered with beer bottles,aluminum drink cans,the odd piles of domestic rubbish dumped here and there,and off-course the numerous unfilled detector holes in just about every area Ive prospected in.
A ten minute dig hole takes me ten seconds to back fill.Is this to much to ask for? Is it to much of a burden to take your rubbish back with you,
and dump it in a bin?If someone was to dump rubbish or dig holes in our own back yards ,would we be happy with that? I can assure you the answer,to all the above is "NO".Although the outback is not our home,it is home to many various species of wild life,that exhibit their own splendor and beauty,it deserves to be treated with respect.

If you want to see rubbish then take a drive around the Whipstick in Bendigo.

It's not detectorist that empty their trailer loads but lazy, good-for-nothing locals that are too miserable to pay a tip fee. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

Well done Ararat, if more people did what you did the bush would be a cleaner place. Every prospector should be on the lookout for dumped rubbish and report it when they see it.
They should also include the information that Rick did - the name and address of the dumper, if that is possible. A GPS waypoint would also be very helpful.

Cheers, Jim cheers

Well done Ararat...there are so many that could not give a stuff about dumping their rubbish anywhere...I do sometimes push a few unfilled holes in (other peoples that is) but make sure i refill mine...I know that after digging a deep hole for junk,you may may want to walk away in disgust..but it is easy enough to push it in than to dig it..

As mentioned there are so many bottles and cans dumped around...i sometimes think if i took the cans home to sell to the recyclers i would come out ahead on my goldless days lol!

Hi Guys, I got back from holidays in Sydney visiting Family. I did a post yesterday here and looks like did not go through Question
Ararat, it's great to hear of some Fools out there getting caught dumping rubbish, it is always an eyesore and we all pay at the end of the day one way or another.... Sad
NOW, TO THE PROSPECTORS WHO DIG AND LEAVE YOUR HOLE UNFILLED - PLEASE RE-FILL YOUR HOLES, BY NOT FILLING IN YOUR HOLES IT SHOWS THE AUTHORITIES THAT WE CANNOT LOOK AFTER OUR LAND..... Sad

I had a mate come down from FNQ late last year and set him up in a lovlely little secluded camp for a few weeks dectecting, first night in two vechicles arrived from Sydney and asked him how he managed to find THIER little piece of paradice? They ended up argueing amoungst themselfs (not with my mate) the next night and left. Pitty the tur#s didn't take thier cut down 44 gallon drum BBQ, drink cans, left over dog food and food wrapping, ALFIOL etc. back with them...but what really peaved me was finding thier exposed turds and paperwork not 30mts from my mates setup! And they say its thier paradice!!! Give me strength, if I was there I would have shoveled them up and put them in thier back seats but I once again had to bury them myself.... ah the life of a plumber follows me camping again!

Funny isn't it about people and turds Very Happy

The entire planet is covered in crap, crap from rats,cats, birds,bugs, spiders animals of every kind, crap from fish, crap from germs, every square mm is covered in crap; When we go into the bush and spot emu turds we say " Jeez must be a few emus about', or if we spot roo sh...t we say " few kangas in this area by the looks of things", or cow turds or wombat crap or rabbit crap, rabbit crap we say " bugger should have brung me 22. and then thers pig sh...t, horse sh..t and tons of bull sh..t; yeah , buckets of bull sh..t. Well all of this crap doesn't bother us in the least but spot a pile of people turds and the sh..t realy hits the fan affraid Always seems to be something realy nasty about people turds pale
Still, if some clown takes a dump on my front lawn I will get a tad sh..t off, but if a wild roo or horse or emu craps on me lawn I will dig it in. Yeah people are funny about crap Suspect

Post  mad mick on Sun Apr 10, 2011 9:30 pm

i am just a newbie but all this whining and whinging about us detectorists not filling our holes is absurd, why dont youse mob whinge about the big mining companies leaving massive open cuts, machinery, piles of over burden and scarring up the land with there also massive trucks, dozers and loaders. i got a perfect signal once just that ever so faint whoop whoop and as i dug deeper it started to get louder so i had to get out the big gear, pick and shovel, got to about 1.5m deep by 1m round as it was screaming at me the deeper i got, and low and behold it was a piece of fencing from the 30;s i believe as it was near the original shaft and took that long to sink down in the silt and stuff. this took almost 3 hours to dig and at the end of it both of my hands were bleeding as the blisters came up after an hour and i worked through the pain barrier and physicaly had blood smeared all over the pick and shovel handles thinking this is my hand of faith, but alas it was not to be, now by that time my back was so sore it took about 5 minutes to extract my self from the hole as i did my back in as well, now be damned if i was going to take another couple of hours to fill that xxxxxx of a hole in, firstly i was not able to and secondly why should we when the mining companies dig a million/billion times bigger holes in the ground than us and just leave them there after they have made millions/billions from them. just does not make any sense to me, and also how many people have actualy gone back over someones previous hole that has been left and found some nice chunks, now by my thinking they would not have found them if them holes had been filled in and also sometimes when i get to an area with heaps of holes left i like to have a look around there as well in deep search mode with a larger coil as it seems to me they might of got something of value from them holes and i like to make sure that they did not leave any thing behind that was just a tad deeper. does that make any sense to youse whinging mob, next youse are going to start whining about the wombat/rabbit holes as well, rubbish i can understand but a few holes here and there, really write to your local mp,s and spend your energy/time on the real people that are stuffing up this great land of ours. them damn mining companies. did you know that the massive pit in kalgourlie can be seen from out of space, now that disgusts me more than a couple of detector holes in some old gold bearing areas already full of old digging holes/mullock piles.. bunch of whingers.. hope i dont turn out like youse mob when i get older..better things to whinge about or should i say worse. wake up and smell the roses, you aint never going to stop it, and i say its a good thing.. well thats my 2 bobs worth.. whos going to whinge about my thoughts first..mad mick..

goldstalker4500. 20 years ago the sites around here looked exactly like the sites in your state, old diggings and as youse mob call them mullock piles, now there just been removed completly with great massive holes full of water and as for invading our fields they are almost all gone, i wish we did have some parks like youse mob down there, but it seems just about all that is left is nothing but piles of overburden/holes full of water and massive scaring on the land, how would you feel if that happened down there to your precious parks, they have literaly raped and pillaged the land with no thought for anyone but their shareholders and back pockets, so anytime you feel like invading us mob up here your more than welcome but dont be to shocked that you wont find a brass razoo because thats about all you will get, brass razoo im talkiing about and to my knowledge the price of brass razoos are not worth the brass there printed on.. later mad mick.ps.come and see for your self and i am sure you will be thankfull for what youse mob have, i would rather have some greenies to deal with than holes in the ground, just wait until the price of gold gets over the $2000 mark them mining companies are already im sure discussing ripping up your land, and with all the cash they have made from the nt. and then we will all have to go to sudan or some place like that to do our detecting.

Mick

As you said your just a NEWBIE, and i would suspect that a good 60% of the newbies are
mainly the ones leaving the holes open cause they are too green in the prospecting gills
to fully understand the Big picture of this issue especially in the eastern states where
practically all of the ground left open is in state reserves or forestry/historic reserves,
in WA the pastoral comittees are lobying their local members to bring this issue up in
parliament,and you dont need to have 1/2 a brain to realise that the minister for environment
and conservation and the other do gooder pollies are part of the same mob.
how long before even WA and NT for that matter are xxxxxx up and we are locked out of
it once and for all ?????/
THIS IS NOT A WHINGE
its a grade 1 lesson for newbies who have no respect
and are Green behind the prospecting gills.. scratch

Lesson #2 Dig a xxxxx hole when ya xxxxx. Suspect



Pete in WA
