That's something I've always wanted to do. Good on you Gus. Just think of the photo ops too.
Might head to the camping shop myself and have a crack. Smile

I had a go at panning some years ago having trecked into the old Morning Star gold mine up at Donnelly's Creek (not too far from you 2WA). Didn't have any luck though but the old 28ft waterwheel was impressive. Plenty of snakes to go with it!

I tried a similar idea a few years back and rented an expensive ($250 for 3 days) metal detector and headed to Tarnagulla

within minutes I had my first hit (who wants to be a Millionaire?) at the end of our trip I had acquired some 200 copper roofing nails and a very sore back. Mad
