Harts Range Northern Territory

Hello again to all, we have now been out at the zircon fields at Mud Tanks off the Plenty Highway in the Northern Territory about 160north east of Alice Springs for the past six weeks and having a great time.

 Adrian is removing the mullock off the top of virgin soil. (ground that hasnt been dug before) There was a whole lot of this to be moved.
 Dad is sieving the gravel to remove the dirt so it can be washed and sorted.
 Mum washing the gravel in what is known as a Willoughby.
 Im flipping the sieve over to hopefully find a zircon on the top.
Yes we found a good stone or two and a whole heap that was not so good. We are now going to try our luck with the garnets just 20km up the road.
