Goldtracker Launch Soon - Who We Are

Gidday All,

From Bill, Udo, Ray and Kurk

I know you have been awaiting this launch and believe me, we have worked very hard at a significant cost in money and time to get the New GOLDtracker App to you.

It was ready and just when it was completed, the automatic update tenements part of the app was deprecated (removed) by ESRI, where we store our app maps, geology, scores and tenements.

Our Programmer is working on some programming to fix this but we want to get out in the next two weeks.   I will be visiting the programmer in Albany this weekend and hopefully iron out all the issues then release it.

How Many People Out There Prospecting?

So, Today I want to talk to you about the new Goldtracker App that will be launched in the next few weeks.

You would be aware that the people prospecting over the past few years have exploded because people cannot travel overseas or interstate so they are all travelling within WA.

Prospecting is a pastime that people can enjoy the bush AND find some gold while they are out there.

The new detectors like the Minelab GPX6000 and SDC2300 have made it EASY to find gold nuggets so more people are out there finding gold.

We estimate that at any one time during the season there could be up to 35000 people prospecting and metal detecting in WA.

What does that mean?

  • It's getting harder to find gold because all of the easily accessible areas are being hammered.
  • You need to know where NEW gold is located in the bush.
  • You have to make SURE that you are prospecting legally because their is a lot of aggro from Leaseholders and Pastoralists with new people not knowing the rules or where they are on the ground.

Dont forget there is massive penalties and fines if you are caught illegally prospecting.

Goldtracker App - Why we Have Built it

The last two years have been difficult to run Gold Prospecting Seminars with Covid restricting our ability to train people.

So we at Gold Prospecting WA have worked with the GOLDtracker people and developed the GOLDtracker App to combine and answer these Questions:

  • 1. Where to Find Gold in WA? (also it follows, Where to find NEW locations to find gold in WA?)
  • 2. Where you are Allowed to go prospecting in WA?
  • 3. Where you are on the ground, at all times in the bush?

It will be available first in Android then Apple iOS devices.

The GOLDtracker App will answer those questions for you.

We will be sending a series of 3 videos out over the next few weeks to answer those questions for you.
