If you want to pm me, I will give you couple spots under 2 hours away where you will find small bits. We used our 4500 there and a mate found colour in his pan

Very Happy hi rob, owugoin? i,m waiting on a BH discovery 3300 due this week ex USA.how you going with the tracker 4? read about these, but checked others in usa and ebay. in my initial post,i said that in reviewing many sites and forums,the overall rating for the better BH,s seems to be @ 8/10,many of those using other top range units too Question i,ll find out soon enough.many of those posts were using these units in gold areas with good results, check out U.S. sites.i ordered the 4 inch coil also. sure, there are many variables,experience,technique,etc. do some web/net research for the area. flinders ranges? gotta be some thing about surely.exploration and knowledge are most important,i reckon the BH will only be a useful tool,not the magic wand. anyway, go well,get into it. sunny cheers

Good overview on that link, but in you look at the map at the bottom of the page, ignore the Watts Gully over near Two Wells!
