Detecting the Palmer River QLD

Post by Philski » Tue Jun 17, 2014 9:19 pm

I got an email yesterday from FNQChris and i asked if i could show you his latest photos and what the area and gold looks like up that way. Ive always wanted to have a look on the Palmer river myself for its amazing history and the amount of gold got there. Very interesting place. It was also one of the last areas in Australia to see volcanic action. And some of the stories of the prospectors that didn't get out before the wet season kicked in are harrowing. Men like ion idriess worked this field and others near it. Chris is going great guns with his nugget hunting. Up to 3 nuggets in as many weeks nearly
My “office” in the Palmer River. I found both nuggets 500metres either side of my camp
