Gday Butterbox.Yes there is a gold belt that extends down to that area and even further south to Steiglitz and Dereel.Dollys Creek area is a well known auriferous area.Dollys creek has reasonably easy, pannable gold and I have heard of gold coming from all those creeks around Dereel and Einfeld. Get yourself a copy of Stephen Barnham's prospecting book called Stray Places.In it he has a good section on Mt Doran.Also Stephen has a book called Ballarat District Gold Panning which has sections on Dollys Creek,Einfeld and Steiglitz.Hope that's of some help....Cheers ,Trevor.

hay butterbox ,i prospect around dollys creek area ,it gets hit faily hard i think or has in the past ,the guys ive seen out there panning have always got a bit of gold ,i got a good speciman 8.9gm from around there but have spent many more hours with no gold though .there is plenty of diggings from dolly creek back to lal lal all through the bush prob need a 4x4 .if you can get on to private propety that would be a great advantage as i know thats were alot of the gold comes from ,i was talking to a guy last week whos mate got over 10oz in 1 day.im in ballarat and if you want to meet up and head out detecting at some stage let me know .cheers

hi butterbox there is a lot of small gold to be found if you are prepared to put up with the crap and rubbish,but in saying that dig everything because you just dont know whats under the ground.my best piece is 5.1gm which was in amongst a lot of old rusty bits of tin.mt doran is a funny place because it has a lot of hot ground and plenty of hot rocks to keep you on your toes cheers al
