Metal Detecting, Gem and Mineral Club Directory
Last month we told you about a free page listing for clubs in our Gold Prospecting, Metal Detecting and Gem Clubs and Associations Directory
The page is still being populated with information about clubs and that will depend on Clubs submitting a Free Internet Club Listing Form.
We didnt expect you to do all the work for us and wrote to all the clubs we know about, 5 of the letters were returned
So if we struggle to find your Club how can prospective members find our about you?
If you are a member of a Prospecting, Metal Detecting, Rockhunting club, Lapidary Association or whatever, do them a favour and formward this link to them so they can get a free one page listing on the club directory.
The club listing form is here;

Historical Gold Mines Of WA
We have been working on a few searchable documents which will provide Historical Data about old gold mines in WA.
This will be available for your use and on the website very early in December and will make a handy Christmas present for those who love historical information about old gold mines and goldfields.

This is a 253 page PDF with searchable listings which will be available as a download or CD with information about;
That will cost $17 as a CD posted to you or $9 as a download from the website - Unfortunately it costs a little more to produce, pack and post CDs. It's just that some people much prefer the CD to a download.
The other Ebook still being written will be similar except it will include Locality information such as GPS points, Geo Map names and Local Government Areas - in case you want MORE than just the historical data.
It will cost slightly more hoppefully that will also be available early December
Gold Prospecting Pages Coming This Month
Coming - plans for new pages;
The Historical Gold Mines of WA page,
The new rewrite has enabled us to have a standalone version on CD produced which will be sold at a marginally higher price due to the production, printing, packaging and posting costs. That is now available and will be included as a purchase option in the next week on the website.
More about that in the next week
Keep Detecting and keep well,
Nobody gets ALL the gold. Theres still plenty left for you.

p.s. Tiger Snakes and Achilles Tendons DONT MIX.
I'm currently sitting on my butt for a few months now with a ruptured achilles tendon which happened when I leapt up to avoid a tiger snake.
There is a lot of snakes around this year.... BE CAREFUL.
