LAST FEW VACANCIES for Gold Prospecting Seminars in Cue in 2012

More Details?

Free Geological Maps

At the Gold Prospecting Seminars that Udo and I run in Cue, we show people how to use Geomap to target locations where they can find gold .

Geomap is also a wonderful free product provided by the Dept of Mines and Petroleum and we will put out a full newsletter on that in the future.

Geomap is a Geographical Information viewer similar to Oziexplorer and TrackRanger which enables you to;

  • Load and overlay maps such as Geological Maps and Topographical Maps
  • Overlay shapefiles like the current "live and pending tenements" or Goldmine Finder Mine locations over the top of Geological or Topographical Maps
  • Query the information on the databases connected to the shapefiles - such as the tenement information or type of mines.
  • Create your own tracks and digitize them to recall the information about where you found that gold in the future
  • Connect your computer to your GPS so you can have moving map and see exactly where you are "on the ground" in relation to the Geology or tenement when you are driving through the bush.
  • Link to the Department of Mines and Petroleum Website for further information about the data you are looking at if you have connection to the Internet

We explain Geomap and train people how to use it at our Gold Prospecting Seminars and provide a host of data, geological maps and topographical maps for the course participant to use.

Links to Free Geological Maps and Geological Map Legend Documents

Some of the maps that you can download are from the Dept of Mines Data and Software Centre such as the 1:100000 and 1:250000 Mosaic Images available from this page:

Free Geological Maps

These maps however do not have legends attached to them because they are images of many geological Maps in an area that are joined together and the legend parts of the maps have been removed

However if you need to interpret the information on these maps when using them in Geomap you will need a Legend.

What People Are Saying About the Seminars

We have had some great feedback about the courses both on the Facebook page and via email like this email.

The thing that makes us the happiest though is when people drop in and tell us about the gold they are finding, that is happening regularly after the seminars.

We were there at Cue on the 28th and 29th of July 2012 ,and will truly recommend to anyone who is even slightly interested in prospecting to give it serious consideration if you have a desire to be successful in finding gold.

I can honestly state neither Alan or myself had ever detected prior and after the two day course we both found gold , lucky maybe , but without the tuition from your seminar we would not have stood a hope in hell of finding the elusive yellow metal or operating the Minelab 5000 detectors.

We thank you for your encouragement , friendship and direction. Thanks also for continuing interest after the course, supplying directions for likely legal detecting areas ,and the continuing invitation to prospect on Udo’s lease.

We had a great week and thank you all from the two of us .We would recommend this seminar to anyone who is interested without doubt . All the very best to you all and thanks again
