Wow now that's impressive!!

How long did that take and what part of the country? Ca?

GPS coordinates would be sufficient Happy

Disregard my earlier post , I just looked at your profile and see NZ.

Save the GPS coordinates and just send a plane ticket.

No freedom hereSad There are 17 fossicking areas around NZ where you can sluice with hand tools only Or you need a claim if you wanna dredge and pay all the fees.
ps I dug a good 8 hours a days and got 1 gram a day..it all adds upHappy

Yes, but jimmy, most of us would have never seen the inside of NZ without you there showing us. And 1 gram per day, and that rock in the classifier; compared to my area I'd be lucky to pull 1/10th gram of flour per week from the glacial placers still left in the rivers. That's why I detect. You can find more jewelry gold than you can sluice for here. We have the areas here that produce, but I'm not in one of them. Not even close. If my woman saw the pile of the yellow stuff you have in your pan you can bet we'd be out sluicing our rivers for naught. That's a pretty impressive pan. Keep up the good work!
