Zeehan area trip to coincide with gem show?

Postby mfdes » Sun Sep 13, 2015 3:10 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm planning to head out to Zeehan to see the gem show in November. At this stage I'm looking at possibly taking an extra day off work, and spending a day at the show and two days fossicking. Is anyone keen?
I thought of spending a day looking for crystals and jade near Trial Harbour and another looking for gold or ossie in the Rosebery area.

Cheers,

Miguel

Hi Sean, and anyone else interested,

The Zeehan Gem and Mineral Fair is on the 7th and 8th of November: http://zeehangemandmineralfair.com

My plan at this stage is to go to the gem show on Saturday, and spend Sunday and Monday fossicking in the area. I haven't planned where to stay yet, I'll probably camp. Accommodation in Zeehan is hard to get at Gem Show time. Rosebery or Strahan is probably easier.

Hey there Mate

I am keen for a trip west, so count me in at this stage

I might have to go away in Nov with Uni but ill know closer to the date.

I can camp or stay in town not fussed, I guess it all depends on the weather forecast

Unsure about the date for the gem show, can someone please advise.
Will be available for say 3 days during prior to the 3rd weekend in Nov if anyone wants to catch up in the West. Benny, you missed telling me about this one when we had a beer the other day. :o

Cheers

Anyone coming to Zeehan?

My plan is to take Monday off. Peter and I will head up Friday evening, and camp somewhere around.
I'd like to look around the show Saturday, then have Sunday and Monday to prospect. Possibilities include Ring River area, Melba Flats, Queenstown.
Heading back to Hobart Monday evening.
