Got a chance to be around Melton tomorrow for about 2 hours. Thought I'd stick the detector in the boot and try my luck. Anyone know if there's anything in close distance to Melton?

Having lived in the western subs of melb for over 30 years and have never heard any reports of gold in or around Melton. Anythonys cutting has not popped up either. Lots of wabbits and rabbit holes there thou. If your still after a detect in the area Steiglitz would most likely be the closest place to find gold. However you would have to check if detecting is still permitted in the area. I recall reading that you can still pan there however, I also recall reading on here somewhere that Steiglitz was off limits.

Good Luck and BTW if your already in Melton it's 110 km speed limit 70 kms up the road to Ballarat

The PMAV is asking for the vic government to open up Lerderderg again for prospecting. Lots of old mines there.

Do any of those creeks run down into the reservoir?

Worth following back upstream perhaps....

Post  vicgoldhunter on Fri Jun 01, 2012 11:14 am

be very nice to be reopened again.... its full of mines an a lot of nuggets come from around there... only a couple of weeks ago i went to bacchus-marsh dpi n was asking them were exactly is the banned area for this
Lerderderg stuff due to the fact ive been to gisborne,when ive seen Lerderderg signs, back of melton, toolern val, Lerderderg signs bacchus marsh, Lerderderg signs, blackwood - trentham, Lerderderg signs, comidai n pyrite forrest, Lerderderg signs so whats going on????
so i said how can all of these area be the same???? an ya no even there at the dpi they couldnt really give the exact position your not allowed to prospect on ...????
so i think even there confused..... lol but they did tell me not in bacchus-marsh like the Lerderderg gorge etc an one side of blackwood??? but as for the others they can not confirm or deniy???????
so if any one can make some sence out of this it would be grate...

Apart from the Coimadai antimony mine there isnt much shown on the vic gov website that would indicate gold that far east of bacchus.

I suspect the people you spoke to went into a flap because of the focus on coal seam gas - they probably thought you were fishing for mining info to get a precedent.

Gold around Melton, Vic? Empty So you want to chase gold Iin Melton

All the good gold in and around Melton is under Basalt Rock well under the older Volcanic flow and since then there has been a new layer and the only way to see what is there is though drilling just research your Geochemistry reports.

Yes there is a few shallow pockets about but not much good for a Detector.

You need to look a little north and north-west like Bullengarock

Here is a view of the drill sample's of gold south-east.
