Hi Guys, Here is my 2.5 grams I got with my 4" dredge up A Coromandel creek in the North Island of New Zealand in the weekend.

Not much but better than a poke in the eye with a blunt stick

Happy hunting

Hi Guys, Thanks. All bloody hard work though as Hoser John will tell you. There was a lot of boulder winching & rock wrestling to get to the bed rock. Gives the old forearms a good working out.

Happy Hunting

JW :thumbsup: :coffee2:

Well Kiwi,
If that color averages from 650 fine to 850 fine (750 fine), that's about $77.48 US today. MUCH better than a poke in the eye! WTG !! TTC

Good looking gold that does not appear as though it has traveled very far--head up hill from the area in the creek where you found it and find its source.
