Sorry - Some Navigation Link Errors in Issue #73Gidday All,
I had to resend this issue I apologise, there was an issue with the links to the stories so this corrects that problem.
The Seminars have finished for 2019, thank you to all those who attended. We enjoyed your company and everyone learned a lot, but in particular the legal way to go prospecting in WA.
We have tested the Coiltek 14x9' Mono coil on the Minelab SDC2300.
There has been some positive and negative feedback about the coils from others we have spoken to.
Testing the New Coiltek 14x9" Coil on SDC2300
Testing the 14x9 Coiltek Coil on the SDC2300Note: we purchased this equipment ourselves. We do not get any benefits from manufacturers for any of our product reviews - we tell it like it is.
We did not buy the smaller Coiltek coils for a few reasons:
(1) It gets too expensive to buy and test everything.
We do not believe buying the coil is a good investment for people who have an SDC2300 for many reasons.
What we question about this is "Why would you want to lose the benefits of an SDC2300 by adding a larger coil to it?"
The benefits we see lost are:
See the page link for the full report and a video showing the testing on the Coiltek 14x9 coil on the Minelab SDC2300.

Drop in Section 40e Permits Issued.There has been a massive decline in Section 40e Permits Issued since the increase in fees to $90 on July 1.
We hear permit applications are up to 80% down at some Mining Registrars.
Wow, that means that:
Who knows? I have not been able to get out into the field since July so have not spoken to many people out there about this.
However, I urge you NOT to consider going prospecting where you are not allowed to go. There are heavy fines for illegal Prospecting and Mining, including confiscation of equipment.
We have also heard that the Gold Squad has been very active of late in various areas like Sandstone. Some people have been warned off or booked.
If you are legally prospecting and you know exactly where you are on the ground you have nothing to worry about.
Remember we have some free training on this and always talk to a Mining Registrar in the field if you are unsure.
Here is the link to our free training on the geomap training WA website.
There is also more in depth paid training options on that site.
It is a membership site so you need a login username and password to access it so you need to register.
