Agate Creek
« on: April 13, 2019, 10:38:25 AM »
Is the Laneway Resources gold mine restricting access to the collecting areas at Agate Creek?
Are they in a spot that could that have become a collecting area?
Does the management of Laneway Resources need to be informed that their payable resources might include agates as well as gold?
Just a few random questions.
Unfortunately I have never been to Agate Creek, and probably never will be able to make it.
Regards,
Ghost

No
Yes as agates have been found in a few spots in the creek all the way down to where Agate Ck meets the Robertson.  Ask Bill, he has walked all the way once upon a time
This is outside the fossicking area on Robin Hood Station

No

I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.

I have just come back from Agate Creek yesterday.
There is more bitumen between Georgetown and Forsayth.
They are starting to grade the area North of Cobbold Gorge.  Overall the dirt sectons are in good condition.
Of concern is that on my way home from the fossicking field, I had to break heavily and come to a complete stop for two separate mine trucks (they only had two carriages not the usual three that you get on the Mt Surprise road).  They were not travelling slowly.  This is a first for me in my 10 or so years travelling out to Agate Creek.  On my way into Georgetown on the bitumen I passed 3 in convoy.  I also passed many mine Utes - more traffic than usual.  I will be very careful when travelling out to Agate Creek from now on.
On another note, Dot and Dave Terry's camp is now $50 a week.
The Safari Camp located up in the pocket is being managed by Craig Morris.  When I visited the area, there was no one around.  A sign at the front says camping all year round and to ring Craig.  His phone number is 0740625386.  There are two signs, one says $6 and the other $8 per night.  The grass is quite high, and the facilities are in need of some TLC.  When I arrived there was no water.  I fixed the issue but they only have a 200 litre drum that the spring feeds into.   If you are self sufficient, it is a very peaceful place to camp.  The only noises come from the birds.
There is still plenty of agates to be had if you are willing to put in a hard days digging (or three).  Some of the agates I pulled this year are the biggest I have encountered - just hope they are not all crystal.

Sounds like the police and mining inspectors need to be told of the trucks behaviour.  Not supposed to be in convoy like that

Got to wonder about the economics of trucking gold ore 600km to process. Operation has got to be marginal. Maybe it won't last too long.
