Prospecting in the Murchison

First time for everything.

After a number of years of urging I finally went prospecting with Phil and Bill, north of Meekatharra.   Believing that I would be parking the Patrol Wagon at Judges Mine, it wasn’t shod for the bush. The result was three tyres with sidewall stakes. Fortunately I had two spares and lots of plugs.

Phil loaned me all the best prospecting gear including a high-end detector and a customised backpack. Even with expert tutoring from Phil and Bill I didn’t find any gold.

But it was a good walk around the bush.

I’m in no rush to go prospecting but certainly would not be averse to repeating the experience.
