Metal Detector and Gold Prospecting Training Seminars in Cue 2014

Hi Everyone

In 2014 we will again be running seminars in Cue to help you answer the questions;

  • Where can I find Gold in WA?
  • What sort of Geology and rocks should I be looking for that indicates 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 freely available 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, any time, in relation to Tenements and prospective gold locations.

    ....and, setting Geomap up NOW, RIGHT NOW and using it during the seminar.

Format of the Seminars in 2014

Feedback from our lessons last year was that some people wanted a bit more time in the field and others wanted more time in the class to make sure they understood the aspects of preparing for a trip well in advance.

So this year we have provided a Full extra day in the Field as well as our traditional 2 Days in house seminar training

On the third day we will take you tagalong style out to Udo's Mining Lease (Or a local lease depending on conditions) so we can provide on the ground practical field training in metal detecting, test your techniques and you can try your luck out there for a piece of gold.

Some Comments from 2014

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

"So to answer your question, I wouldnt change a thing and I can not think of anything extra that needs to be added.

The fact that you are all competent prospectors and detector operators and were so willing to give us so much information , blows me away. The casual and friendly nature of the course has allowed friendships to form between (Names Deleted) and myself, so much so that we are talking about meeting up again next year if we can.

In closing can I again say thanks to the three of you for your friendship, your openness in regards to all things prospecting, for a very informative weekend and for confirming in my mind that prospecting is something that I want to do more of, that I am capable of finding some gold and havent wasted my money on all the equipment."

"(Names Deleted) and I have found some more gold at (Place Deleted) each weighed around the gram x 5 so Cue/Meekatharra has been good for us

I would like to thank you all very much for the great teaching you gave us and especially the patience Bill gave me for my computer not doing what it was suposed to do, I have been practicing and have the entire WA maps on my computer.

The only bit more to practice on, is the downloading of the updating on the tenements info "

"Thanks Bill and Udo,

Did enjoy the time and learnt a lot

Found my first little piece a couple of days later"

"good afternoon from (Name Deleted) -on the way home stopped at a spot that iI knew near Paynes Find -geology was right - 2days at 4hrs per day - 10 grams with my gp3000 and standard dd coil -,one 7gram piece and other smalls.carefully marked spot for revisit with mono first and then 5000 -pretty exciting -now planning trip to cue in 2nd week october -to hell with the heat "

"Thanks again for a great few days of training and hospitality. We had an awesome time and now feel quite confident in going it alone.

We will be in touch soon to hire a detector in a few weeks time, as we can't wait to get back out there!"

"I have showed a few people my gold (okay anyone I see!). They are mostly impressed and asks all sorts of questions. The one thing that I have told everyone and make very clear is this... I would never have found a thing if not for the absolute kindness of you two, Udo and (Name deleted). No where else on this planet do people take you to their patch, where they have found and are finding gold and say "here you go", "go for it!" Amazing people!"

"had a great time at course learning tips are a great teacher & a gentleman.. ended up with 22 grams from little patch near piece was 5.6 g..have just picked up another 23 g at Laverton area & am fueling up for another am on the run, bill..if you keep handing out so much information , the gold will soon run out..!
