Hi all
Found some nuggets recently about 100km from Leonora.
The biggest is 13 grams. Used a GP3500.
Xmas bonus

Cheers
Mick

Hi Greywolf
Yes it is a long way but it has some good gold in the area. How far do you guys travel to find gold?

Hi Greywolf
Thanks for that, I will check it out.
When you say you have got some ground, does that mean some type of lease(claim)?

Cheers
