Hi Mark,

Been out way a few times, only once though past Mulga Rock. That was in 2006 and the track followed pretty much what it is on the maps. It was an easy track then and I made it in the original cruiser ute tyres with no punctures.

2010, I went the way Sparra mentioned, north of Pinjin.

2012, east just after Pinjin a new wide mining road came before me, so I followed this to the PNC Baseline Road. I didn't really even bother to check for the old track when I would have past it. Then on to Officer Basin, the spring and the Connie Sue.

Here's the plotfile to the spring and Streich Mound from Officer Basin

Nice country out that way, out to Plumridge Lakes and the Connie Sue.


Looking for adventure.
In whatever comes our way.

I led a group from the Connie Sue through that area to Leonora last year. It was so interesting on my way home to Melbourne I went from Kalgoolie through Pinjin, Mulga Rockhole, Lake Minigwal, Officer Basin, Argus corner, Queen Victoria Spring, Cundeelee to Zanthus and along the railway line to Deakin. I know a bloke who built mining roads and other things in that area some 30 odd years ago and he has given we some old photo's which I was trying to find where they were taken. Unfortunately when I was last there, there were bush fires everywhere and I was told to get out. I expect to get back there, hopefully next year. THe PNC Camp Site is currently occupied by Vimy Resources who are looking into uranium mining. Vimy Resources is their name from 16 Dec 2014 it was previously Energy and Minerals Australia Ltd when your there you may see EAMA signs. A big change to the area is a major road put in which start just south of Pinjin and goes to the Tropicana Gold Mine. Its on very few maps as it is a private road but huge road trains are constantly travelling up and down it. If you want to know more just give me a ring, 03 9584 6292. Chris Smith.
What other people think of me is none of my business.
