Hello to all in here, just got listed today. Wish all prospecting guys a very happy and prosperous new year.
I live in upper scamander and was wondering if anyone would know of anywhere in this area where it could be ok to try. Any help will be welcome. Thanks.

Hey Daniel Happy new year and Christmas to you.

The best creek i found out the back of Scamander was on private property (open farm land) on the main road heading west. About the 3rd creeks along, it had very good Cassiterite / tin. easy to mine / pan and profitable at those levels. not a lot of gold though.
at Upper Scamander the Yarmouth mine, Orieco Mine (2km north of upper scamander) and Scamander Bell
Kindest regards
Phillip
