I am on facebook and just gave the page a like..

Just gave you a second like from my Aussie treasure digging page ;D

No pics of hanging ducks though, which is a pity..

I didn't see any pictures from the last outing showing a duck hanging off a suburu.Maybe nobody thought to take one. 
Re the facebook page, i was surprised how often i get asked" how big was the gold" when its plainly marked on the picture. Maybe phones don't show the text with the pictures.

I put up junkers finds a few days ago. You will have to go to the page and scroll down till you see my hand with a lot of buttons and a very old shilling.  Junkersons gold with a button shown as well.

Just use Google.
search        Bendigo Prospecting club Facebook
I put up a few Bpc nuggets that haven't been shown here.

Thanks Ray , I stuffed up the shilling cleaning it , I could make out the date as 1826 , but I did the foil and spit trick and all the detail came off with the oxidisation .

Junker,

I only use the magic marker pads on my old silvers now, had a couple of horrors with the spit technique. I think it only works on a certain type of oxidation.

I just posted some pictures of our meeting at Chiltern. Gary Schafer who is the boss of consumer sales for Minelab attended. I went to dinner with him later but didn't get any new info that he didn't tell others at the AGM.
