Inspired by the Giant Penguin exhibition at the Waikato Museum we were inspired to go treasure hunting.
There is lots of digging happening near our houses. We came across an area was abut 3 metres deep and 20 metres log and may be 5 metres across. What was very interesting is the very red soil and different levels of dirt and stones. We decided to collect some of the various stones we found.
We found out that the red in the soil is caused by iron oxide in the ground. We are very interested in the stone layer. Would that be from an old stream bed or something else? Since we have been here the developer has covered this area with sand.
