#gold-prospecting

A couple of days spent camping and prospecting at Reedy Creek (Eldorado end) in North East Victoria. There was a bit of rain recently and so the river was quite high which prevented me from finding any good gold. But I did get something to show for my efforts when all was said and done. Used the Angus MacKirk Grubbstake sluice.

This is the second test of my DIY Miller Table, and the first real test with some sluice cons. Twas a resounding success, if I do say so myself :) What do you think?

Headed out again today for a short couple of hours sluicing in order to get some cons to test out my new miller table with. Twas very wet and cold...ugh.

Check out my next video if you want to see the clean up and gold I got for this effort.

And please excuse the audio quality. Although it's never usually amazing, the camera got quite wet and the audio seems to have suffered.

A return to the spot where I snagged my first picker...with some decent results...I got some gold. This has to be one of my favorite places to go prospecting. Made a diy sucker but that broke pretty early on. Sigh. So just worked the crevices by hand for the day. The water level was a up a little, not enough for the sluice though.
