Last year I was prospecting in a creek that I’ve gone over a few times in the last few years, and got wondering why the surrounding creeks were not marked as having gold in LISTmap.
Since the creek I’ve been working was getting a bit flogged, I spent a day working a km or so of one of the neighbouring creeks that has the same geology.
Immediately it was obvious that the old-timers didn’t waste any effort in this creek. No stacked rocks or evidence of workings of any kind.
Still, I managed to find two little tiddlers with the SDC (the two separate ones on the right hand side of the picture).
