Hi Wally,
Smiths Plains, as in near Moina? I haven't been to the area myself, maybe Phil has, it's near his place.

Gday wally. Ive been up there a few times looking and have panned every creek. Ive never seen a single speck. There is a big exploration report online was some drilling done there years ago. Found some galena with some trace gold deep down but thats about it.

HI all

the only place i found any was at this creek on Loonganna Road https://goo.gl/maps/H9fw6 on top of a pile of gravels on the right that have been excavated out of the creek bottom i presume. The same creek crosses smiths plains road further south and its head water adjacent the Devonport Mine. It was a nice flake of gold if that helps. Ive not been back up there for years though. My car blew up on the return trip to monia that day. The place is bad "car"ma (pun) for me.
