prospecting - Surface prospecting, NW of Tunnocks

Fri 01 Aug 2014
Michael S

From Tunnocks entrance walked for ~15 min NW down the large gully before prospecting started, following the cairned route. Took a large loop by heading up the lower slopes of the Greißkogel, then following the bedding plane NE and upward. After a few hours found only one good lead (2014-777) and decided to turn for home, travelled S back to the end of the cairned route but found a more promising hole (2014-888) which was partly blocked by choss but had a very strong draft coming out.

777 was tagged & GPS logged, but 888 was only GPS logged for lack of time.
