Gidday All,

I will be sending another email newsletter out next week about GeoMap and the changes made to the download area for tenements used in GeoMap Projects, but I want to keep this email exclusively relating to Gold Prospecting seminars we will be holding in Cue this year.

If you are not interested in attending a seminar in Cue this year then read no further and stay tuned for our GeoMap Email next week.

Gold Prospecting Seminars 2018

In 2018 we will again be running seminars in Cue to help you be the Masters of Your Own Prospecting Destiny so you can answer these questions for yourself;

  • Where can I find Gold in WA?
  • What sort of Geology and rocks should I be looking for that indicate gold could be present?
  • Where am I allowed to go Metal Detecting in WA?
  • What are The best metal detectors and Equipment to use to get ALL the gold.
  • How do I set up and use GEOMAP on my computer with free Geological and TOPO Maps to easily research prospective Gold Locations.
  • How do I set up GEOMAP with a computer and GPS so I know EXACTLY where I am, at anytime, in relation to Tenements and prospective gold locations.

Most critically you will be off and running with Geomap installed on your PC and competently using it during the seminar.

Training Dates in 2018

At this stage we cannot commit to dates in the second half of 2018 for July and August due to commitments that will not be resolved until May/June 2018 – we will send out another newsletter in May to advise of dates in the second half of 2018.

Here is a few comments from seminars in 2017 and 2016

These have been great fun and the people who have been to them reckon they have learned plenty;

Here is a few comments from seminars in 2017

I have to get onto practising Geomap in earnest very soon or the bits and pieces I remember from the hard two days will be all forgotten. Thank goodness for your step by step booklet. I am determined to get my head around all the stuff and hopefully it all helps me next year to find some good spots to detect.

As for feedback, your course was very well presented, most enjoyable and certainly worth the money spend on. Thank you for it.

By the way, I had 79 bits making 16.9 grams and all but two bits came from (location removed).Cheers and thanks againRay

I have to say thanks for the enjoyable training seminar the knowledge turned out to be an asset, as you were aware I was going to the Coolgardie goldfields over Easter using Geo Maps we had plenty of places to search.

While we were detecting in a small pending tenement inside a large area operated by Focus Minerals we had several service vehicles pass in and out of the track with a ute and 2 workers returning about 2 hrs later wanting a chat, and informing me that I was on Focus land so I said show me, which he proceeded to whip out his phone and have some tenement maps on it and them said you are about here on focus land, so of course my reply was HOLD ON A MINIUTE I can show you EXACTLY where I am, so reloaded up Geo Maps, connected to GPS, zoomed in and the cursor showed me well inside the pending lease so then the reply was

"Ohh ,Ok we will let the Office know."

It was a really good feeling to know exactly where we were on the ground cause it saved the bacon again thanks for the info gained it turned out to be Invaluable…Craig

Thank you for a terrific seminar. I feel my objectives were met on the course, just crying that I didn't walk over some gold on the final day :) It's also great to meet other like minded people from all over WA, hear their stories and get together at Udo's place on the Saturday. Allen

Sue Bill and UdoJust a quick note to thank you all for the weekend, it was great and I have learnt so much. Also inspired me to start this as a hobby. George

Here is a few comments we have had from our emails in 2016.

Thankyou for the course, organising a 40E and to Udo for inviting us to his house on Saturday night.

Found some gold at (location removed) one piece was 6.6grams which I enjoyed digging out of the calcrete.

A piece found by a friend weighed 30.8ozs , specie we reckon it may have maybe 6 to 8 grams in it . the rock was bloody heavy though

Stephen and Edwina

My apologies for not making the last day, had nothing to do with any negative views on the seminar ,was a credit to all your crew with a very well presented presentation ,so very helpful with Geomap & all the other info, so accept my heartfelt thanks for a great seminar.

At the moment up at Meekatharra, picked up some nice pieces the last couple of days.

Cheers Allan

I would like to thank you, Sue, Udo and Kurk, I had a really good time and learnt a lot.

As far as I am concerned there was nothing to improve on.

I found a few pieces of gold around 3g which was a bonus, I thought we had found a good patch but it turned out to be pyrite (boo hoo).

I am sure we will catch up again on one of the APLA events and if I find anything in the meantime I will let you know.

Once again thanks for a great time. Dave and Lyn

Just wanted to say thanks again for your great course.

It was very informative and has made it even more enjoyable to be out bush looking for gold knowing exactly where you are and where you are allowed to be without having to look over your shoulder.

Joe, Mat and myself found gold every day and this would not have been possible without Geomap and the training.

This was highlighted by people at the caravan park who left their holiday early as they were convinced there was no gold left.

Thanks for everything and I will be highly recommending your course to prospecting friends


Thank you very much for the training seminar. I know we are a bit late in providing feedback, but having spent a few weeks further north in Exmouth (fishing), we returned back to the goldfields. Thanks to your training we have managed to pick a 10 small pieces ranging from 0.3 up to 2.5 grams between us.

The seminar itself was perfect, with a lot of information to learn within the first 2 days, and the materials providing an excellent resource material for follow up. It easy to see how much effort you guys have put into the training, and your passion shows through.

Geomap is a fantastic tool and we are using this quite often, not only for tenement locations but also for the geological map info.

.We’ve managed to apply for a Section 40 in Menzies area for our trip back to Victoria.

The group was enjoyable and we great time, even though the temperature was right up there.

Keep up the good work that you are all doing, couldn’t fault the course or the company.Liz and Ian

Just a quick email to say thank you for all your time and effort in putting together such a good seminar.

We had a little knowledge (always dangerous) but now feel comfortable in the knowledge we can prospect legally.

Really enjoyed everyone's company and look forward to meeting up again down the track. Pamela & Gerry

To you all involved in running the seminar I wish to thank you all for doing a wonderful job, I went out and found gold, it can't get any better than that. I look forward to running into all of you later on. Best wishes to you all. Laurie
