The Scamander St Helen's Area

Postby Pocketbuster » Wed Oct 11, 2017 9:18 am

Dose anyone on here live or go to Scamander or St Helen's oftan and would like to try abit of fossicking there I've done alot of reading on the area and I found out that there is Malachite and Azurite in the Scamander river it made sense to me as therebis alotn of old copper mines in the Scamander area up in the hills and both Malachite and Azurite are copper associated minerals also once me and my parants went on a drive up into the hills behind St Helens I can't remember exactly where but we pulled onto the side of the road and I found qutie large chunks of granite with deformed Smokey quartz crystals inbeded in the granite I'm not syre but I would say after finding Smokeys and amethyst up here in Central Queensland it could be similar to uo here and I think if when I'm back down tassie next and I go back there and walk up the hill where were and done some digging removed the top soil and got down to the hard granite floor I reckon there wouldn't definitely be some good smokey specimens there but the the main reason I started this topic is to see if anyone has gone up in the mountains around these areas and had a look and have they found anything
