Hi MTB Digger,

Welcome and congrats on the great finds, yes once your hooked its hard to do / think / speak anything other than gold.

well done on the finds, glad to see you have done it the right way by getting help early, wish I did that, waisted 6 months and a pair of shoes lol!

Great to see your enthusiasm is paying off Smile Having great gear and a good knowledge of how to use it puts the odds of finding gold regularly in your favour...You`re going great Simon.

Cheers Bill
