Did a bit of social distancing today (not too many people out bush). A short trip to Bendigo and Heathcote. At the latter is the pictured Pink Cliffs geological reserve, an artefact from the sluicing for gold operations in the 1880s.

This reserve is close to a spot that I used to go to about 30 years ago and collect gold and stibnite specimens. That spot has since been commercially mined out and now looks to be on private property (there is a house where there was none).

Magnesite nodules, such as the one pictured below (and found today), can still be found in the area.
