Fossicking at O'Brien's Creek

Monday 13 July 2014

Fine and sunny again with a temperature in the mid 20s - this weather is so boring.

The trip to O'Brien's Creek was about 45 km of reasonable gravel road through Mount Surprise Station with quite a few mobs of cattle near the road. We tried a couple of different fossicking spots in the Creek but with no luck. All we found were a few pieces of smoky quartz, but no topaz.

About mid afternoon we headed back to camp empty handed refuelling on the way in preparation for our trip to Atherton tomorrow.
