Goldmine Finder - Software to Help You Easily Find over 34000 Mines in WA

October 2017 - Goldmine Finder Software - Tabs Greyed out and Not Clickable Issue

The standalone Goldmine Finder Software and database has been working flawlessly for some 6 years on PCs but suddenly early October the Tabs within the software are no longer clickable.

We suspect it was caused through a Window 10 upgrade but have our programmers looking at the problem and the fix.

Until the Goldmine Finder program is fixed we have temporarily removed it from sale.

If your copy of the Goldmine Finder has problems like:

  •  "Search Results" tab not clickable,
  • " OZIexport" or "Google Export" not clickable.

We are working on the fix and will send out an email to you with the fix as soon as the programmer has identified it and developed a fix.

Until them we sincerely apologise for the issue and will place it back on the market as soon as possible.

Contact us if you need to know more.

The goldmine finder software enables you to easily find over 34000 Mine Locations in WA

In the past although you could find old gold mine names and mud maps showing you the way to the gold you did not have precise GPS localities.

Over the last century those old map marks and tracks no longer exist - you need precise GPS points of the old gold mine to find it again.

The Goldmine Finder database enables you to find the GPS points of old gold mine and then export them to OziExplorer and Google Earth Maps so you can find your way to the old mine.


This software has now been released as a CD that has the Goldmine Finder software, data and all of the prerequisite programmes to enable it to be uploaded to your PC (and your Laptop if you want to), easily.

Formerly the software was available as a download from the site but it has been removed for a complete rewrite to overcome some issues people had in downloading the programme for use on their own PC.

NOTE - The software was not written for a MAC/APPLE/LINUX Computer, Sorry.
