Very nice! I’ve found a few long, skinny bits around Queenstown, but nothing as wiry as that.

That’s sexy gold. Closest thing I’ve found is fencing wire!

Fine wire gold in-situ with gold cube terminations in the Lea River. About an inch long mostly. Small leader in the Southern edge of the River about a hundred meters from the gold mine. Cords: 41°29’25.7"S 146°01’50.8"E

The clearings up top are the Stormont gold mine and the falls. Moina gold own it now. Its a hundred meters or so downstream from the mine itself. Access is ask Steve in the quakers barn. Or straight up the gully from the camp ground and bridge area. Or go up the overflow / kayak into the mouth and walk up. The cliffs at the mouth of the Lea are difficult to get past on foot. A few new homes the iris end so access has changed. The gold is not as wide as your wire gold but really beautiful and very interesting. Just getting in there is the hard bit.
