Resources Minister, Russell Northe goes prospecting

Victorian Resources Minister, Russell Northe, and Sport and Recreation Minister, Damian Drum took time out from their busy schedules to experience recreational prospecting first hand recently near Bendigo.

The PMAV had invited both of these National Party MP’s for the field trip and they both keenly accepted. Mark and Ronda Hyde from Gold Prospecting Australia organised all the gear, training and catering. Rita and David Bentley, Don Brereton, Dean Smith, Lynnie Hindle, Adrian Panow and Tony Mills guided the Ministers and their advisers during their two hour session. Amazingly, both the Resources Minister and his adviser both found small nuggets – together with a silver threepence. Minister Damian Drum didn’t find any gold, but certainly enjoyed the experience.

Probably the highlight for the day were the gorgeous, large nuggets found by a PMAV member recently. He was kind enough to bring them along for the day.
