Hi Penguin,

What were you swinging to locate these?

Also, some great pieces and very nice colour! Seems like the gold down here is very pure :-)

I was swinging a sdc 2300 , this is the first ever gold i have found detecting, so i am very happy and no nugget is safe.

Great machine Penguin! Also, without giving away the location..if these were picked up in a creek/river, did you find that they were being discovered along the banks or in the centre of the creeks/rivers? ..I'm still trying to learn how to locate gold in such surroundings here (quite different from up in the NT) :-)

Hello.
I found them on the river bed, stuck in crevices .Had other signals in deeper water but the currant made it impossible to see clearly .

Very nice work, Penguin. When the dry season hits, you can return to the West, and get those deeper targets!
