Where to Find Gold and Where are You Allowed to Find Gold in WA?

Gidday All,

As you would be aware we have seminars each year and they book out in few hours.

This year the seminars we could hold were limited due to my medical and other commitments in the second half of 2018.

We do feel for those that missed out and apologise to you.

To overcome some of the missed training we have provided a number of newsletters and training videos over the past month or so to help.

  • The 4 Criteria You Use to Find Gold
  • The Rules of Prospecting in WA
  • Understanding The Rules of Prospecting in WA and how to Use GeoMap and Tengraph Web to see where you can legally go.

These answered some of the questions that we posed in the first newsletter we sent, which were:

  • 1. Where can I find gold in WA? (We sent you a newsletter and links to this video in our first email - Newsletter issue 62.)
  • 2. Where am I allowed to go metal detecting for Gold in WA? The Rules of Prospecting in WA (We answered this in our newsletter issue 63)
  • 3. How do I know whether I am on ground that I am allowed to be when metal detecting?

This newsletter answers the third question:

How do I know whether I am on ground that I am allowed to be when metal detecting?

And...How do I Quickly Understand the localities that are worthwhile prospecting for gold Nuggets?

How to Download and Use GeoMap

Now that you know where to target good gold localities (Video 1) and Understand the Rules for Prospecting in West Australia (Video 2)


so that you;

  • Know which land can you can access to go metal detecting in WA ? (GEOMAP Is a Free offline program.)
  • Know where the gold is located and the type of Geology where gold is being found in an area.
  • Know where the dryblowing and Metal detecting areas are..
  • Know the exact localities where gold has been found (or any mineral including Gems, Diamonds whatever you want to know)
  • Know how to avoid “no-go” areas.
  • Know EXACTLY where you are on the ground when you are in the bush using GeoMap.
  • Save tracks into a bush locality so you can go back to the exact place in a year (or 10 years) time.

STOP PRESS. - GeoMap - Is a free program provided by the DMIRS (Department of Mines) in Western Australia.
