APLA Open Day Nearly Here

Gidday All,

The APLA Open Day will again be held in Perth on Saturday 24 November 2018.

It's free and their will be a lot of information provided.

I will be presenting a talk on the day and although I haven't been provided with the final Agenda my talk will be an overview of the key things that you need to know to go prospecting in West Australia.

  • Where is the best place to Target Gold.
  • Where are you ALLOWED to target gold in WA.
  • How do you know exactly where you are on the Ground when you are prospecting in WA.
  • and, a brief overview of Tengraph and GeoMap - the tools you use to do these things.

Other Speakers will be talking about

  • Minelab Detectors.
  • GeoMap.
  • Royal Flying Doctor.
  • and Other subjects.

It is a great day for you to find out the things you need to know about prospecting in WA and ask APLA members and the presenters about APLA and Prospecting for Gold in WA.

Come along and learn about APLA and Prospecting in WA - its free to attend and everyone is welcome.
