I reckon our Spud is a bit of a "Golden Wonder!" :D Geddit?? Looks like a real goldminer in that pic. :cool: Great pics Spud, hope that half ounce is worth a few quid, maybe even worth its weight in gold! :cool:

Spud do you dig in the same place all the time ??? and do you need a permit or can anyone just get the gear and start digging :???:

Snowy we dig in the same creeks and rivers but not in the same places and we are always hoping for big floods to shift more gold back to the old spots !!
In Victoria you need a miners right to dig on crown land but where ive been lately in NSW you dont :D

Spud. If the rivers bring the Gold down, from the mountains somewhere I assume, why not go to the source and look for the original veins? Just wondering.
