After searching for gold on some private property for several hours for no result, I thought I would go to a well worked area on common land that I’ve always had a feeling would hold a decent sized nugget. This area had given up many small nuggets up to 3g
I recently found an undetected patch of good gold nuggets in the Victorian Golden Triangle. Right by a track that people have driven over for years. Yes there is a fair amount of trash around, but it just looked too good. A few junk pieces and my first piece was over one gram and not too deep. I have been back twice and am over the ounce mark with the biggest up until last week being 8.6 grams. When my brother who has never detected for gold before saw this he needed to book a flight from NZ and come out and join our Dad and detect the patch.
Deciding to take an extra-long weekend this Labour day, we headed off on Friday to one of our favourite spots within the Golden Triangle in Victoria. Giving the kids and extra day off school and kinder we left home at 5am to get a head start. Arriving at our destination and after setting up camp thick in the beautiful Vic bush, my partner was keen to go out and have a swing around the area. It was heating up, at this stage around 11 it was about 32 degrees and muggy.
