We all had a great time , even the weather was kind and did not do as forecast . While i did not find any native gold i was lucky enough to hit a patch of relics and made the find of a lifetime . I will let the pics do the talking . Thanks again Ron and Emma !

Mate, that guinea is something else. My jaw dropped when I saw the picture. It’s in such good nick with plenty of detail left.

Wow, that must have been someone’s special keepsake to remind them of old England to survive in that condition. Congratulations!

An incredible find. You worked hard for it judging by the other relics. Check out this page?

You are showing the rest of us what’s possible.
I wonder if the last owner of the guinea left with more gold than they lost?
Of course, we’ll never know.

Thanks R.G. Prospecting for sharing this great spot with the rest of us.

Thanks again to Ron for hosting a great weekend. It was good to catch with old friends and meet some of the club’s new members plus a new generation of young prospectors, who appeared to be enjoying the weekend. Hopefully they will, like myself, be inspired to make prospecting and appreciating our wonderful outdoor environment a lifetime thing.
Here’s some photos of my efforts for the weekend - 1.2 gms with the SDC 2300, largest piece weighing in at 0.66 gms - also a few relics with the Nox 800. The lead slug weighs 21 gms - one wouldn’t want to be in the firing line of one of those!! It would do a fair bit of damage I think. I detected it about 20cm into the North wall of the middle cut and Lord knows how no-one else detected it. Several people were working that area for quite some time and it gave a fairly definite signal.
