Metal Detector Tips

For some reason this month we had a lot of forms completed from the "Contact Us" page requesting information about metal detecting in January.

Thats Ok, it took a bit of time to answer everyone but we dont mind that it just takes up some of our webpage development time.

Much of the information is probably what others want to know so we will build a page on Frequently Asked Questions and everyone will be able to see the answers too - later as we complete other webpages I am sure the questions will be answered more fully.

The answers may help you too, who knows?

For example, we had a question on Selling Gold and it just happens we are in the process of building a page "Selling Gold" so...

  • The email answer will be included on the FAQ page then.
  • A more comprehensive page will be written just about selling gold later this month.

Hopefully the FAQ page will help you obtain information more quickly.

Old Gold Mines - Goldmine Finder Database Progress

We now have approval and a Commercial Licence from Dept of Mines and Petroleum to use the data in Minedex for this product.

Which is Awesome! Thanks to the Department and Erica Theedom.

Last Newsletter we posted the following information

Here is a sneak preview of one chapter of the instructions

This page is ONLY available to you e-gold newsletter subscribers;

Chapter 5 - How to Find Old Gold Mines Using the GOLDMINE Finder.

We are still trying to validate and amalgamate around 11000 records in the old Department of Mines 1954 publication;

"List of Cancelled Gold Mining Leases which have produced Gold"

However many of the entries in that document are duplicated due to the different periods of gold production included in the book.

So we will work on it a bit more in the next few weeks and then release the "Goldmine Finder" product.

Are YOU ready for the 2011 Gold Prospecting Season - Section 20a Permits

Over the next few months we will be providing hints and tips for the 2011 Gold Prospecting season.

The second tip is this....

Start to Plan your Section 20a Research and Permit Process NOW

This is particularly true for Eastern States or Overseas Prospectors who dont have local connections or knowledge.

Why risk problems and illegal entry to sites, there is ground you can prospect on for 3 months legally as "Big as The State Of Texas"

Ha ha ha haaa... yep all you have to do is apply for access to Granted Exploration Licence ground using a Section 20a Permit application.

This is covered in the following pages;

The new Page on the Site Section 20a Permit System.;

Information pamphlets; Section 20a Gold Prospecting Permit System.;

Then in the Free Tengraph Instructions book Free Tengraph Online, Grahical Instruction Ebook.;
