Mainland mining holiday

Post by Rickchampion » Sat Dec 28, 2013 12:31 pm

Hey all. My wife and I and our 1 year daughter are looking at touring from Melbourne through to south aus. Any advice on gold and opal mining over there or tours. We going to be motor homing for 10 days.

Put a post up on one of the mainland gold forums, http://golddetecting.4umer.net/ etc.
plenty of helpful people that will point you in the right direction.

Maybe offer to be someones digging slave for a day if you want to tag along with someone with a good detector and local knowledge.

cheers,
Andrew

Have a great trip mate,
you will find it amazing just how much digging has been done by the oldtimers.
I have read at one stage 2 tons of gold was coming out of the golden triangle a week,
there is bound to be a few bits left for you.
cheers,
Andrew
