Hi everyone

QLD Barry and myself have teamed up and have our new website http://anakie-gemfields.com.au/ up and going .

Barry is at the moment out in the fields and digging and since he has a limited slow internet connection I am updating all his mining in a blog/mining diary that can be found on the website under CLAIMS-GRAVES HILL-MINING DIARY

thanks very much Barbra, we plan as well that we can showcase more running claims from different miners in the future so people can see and follow and get a taste without a " Hollywood" filter what small mining claims are all about and how much effort and time and sometimes little(or big) reward there is at the end of the day.

Dont forget to add those video shorts to the site, or links to them on UTUBE.

thanks , yes we will add the videos. One of the issues is that the internet connection is sooooo slow in the gemfields that uploading a video is nearly impossible and has to wait until Barry is back home on the coast.
Actually I just got of the phone with Barry and the internet is down in the fields and it seems for a few days.

Schmick-looking website there :)

Yes, the stones are definitely there - but there's definitely a helluva lot of dirt mixed in with them as well :D
