Hi Stoppsy,
My best day was 2 small patches , 23 bits for a total of about 12 grams. It was great fun. 3 of us were working one of these patchs and the record was 1 minute to find, dig and locate a bit.
I remember reading in GG&T a few years ago of one bloke in WA who got something like 300 bits before lunch.
More recently my "patches" are smaller 3 or 4 bits and thats it. It would be interesting to hear what most people consider to be a patch, eg 3 bits or 10 bits.
Cheers Mark.

G'day Stoppsy.

28 bits higher up the creek bank in what looked like one solid smoothend wall of slate where no one would ever think of swinging a coil on,for there were no visible cracks or crevices,just bare bummed smooth slate.28 bits ranging from 0.3gms to 1.3gms in a hole measuring 5x4 inches deep.The ground or should I say rock cover was that hard,that it took a bit over 2hrs chipping away to remove the lot.Total gold weight 31.4 gms.Talk about small pockets of gold.

Cheers kon61.

Hi "Two bob"
Yes the low tide is great after some good seas,though some good stuff has turned up in the oddest places.On two occasions at Barrack height and North beach Wollongong only rocks were left after big seas,found hundreds of 1 and 2 cent coins only and an antique white gold ring which mum has proudly worn for the last 10 years.Did also find some old watches.
