Hi there people :)

I am a bit new to this forum and i guess i have many questions!
Do many go panning regularly for gold? I was just hoping to tag along with someone or go in a group?
I am on the East Coast near Orford and have brought a couple of pans and am hoping to get some more gear,
I have spoken with Ralph from MRT when i went to Zeehan and paid for a book or two about prospecting. I have a little trouble reading the co-ordinates stated in the book he has produced and after sending two emails weeks ago.. i have received nothing in return.
If anyone could give some hints as to some good places for panning on the eastern side of the state id be super grateful!

Cheers! Tony.

The coordinates would be from a particular map not GPS . There are a few in our area that do a bit

Hi Tony, the coordinates are grid references in UTM, rather than latitude and longitude. These translate directly to the 1:100,000 and 1:25,000 maps like Rohan said.
I've panned some gold at Tobacco Creek in the northeast, and the Lisle valley. MRTmap has a 'mineral occurrences' layer that shows you exact spots.

Good luck!

Welcome Tony, I,m new to panning myself and have been a few times now. You tube has some ok gold panning tutorials worth watching. You could practice with some lead split shot in your pan and some gravel. Yeah the mrt map is the go for gold occurrances and mine workings. Obviously on here there is discussions on some location also. All the best with it.
