Gidday All,

Your Questions About Gold Prospecting in WA.

The most consistent questions you ask Udo and I is;

  • 1. Where can I find gold in WA?
  • 2. Where am I allowed to go metal detecting for Gold in WA?
  • 3. How do I know whether I am on ground that I am allowed to be metal detecting when I am out there prospecting.

Online Training To Answer Those Questions.

We have been working on creating online training using Videos and Graphical PDFs to answer those questions for you.

Recently, we did have some further issues prior to publishing these videos.

Issues we Have Had Prior to Release of Training to Answer those Questions.

First we needed to be clear on Copyright with the Department of Mines Industry Resources and Safety (DMIRS). That hurdle has been cleared see Copyright and Disclaimer below.

Second, Our Website Guy (Programmer) is a fly in fly out worker and sometimes difficult to contact when he is on the oil rigs so that has delayed some updating and fixes that have been required.

In between times we have been bush and conducted two seminars in Cue so that takes up some time away from the PC.

Decision Made to Release the Free Training Videos.

We have decided to release Video 1 now and Video 2 in a few weeks depending on my access to the Internet over the next few weeks.

Video 1 is about "How to Find Gold Locations in Western Australia".

Video 1 can be viewed at: Geomap Training Videos and Early Bird List.

This explains the 4 Basic rules you need to know to find Gold or "Potential" Gold Locations in West Australia - It is NOT that hard to find potential gold locations in WA.

When you understand the rules then it is easy to target potential gold localities using:

  • Tengraph WEB which in an ONLINE DMIRS program, or,
  • GeoMap which is an OFFLINE DMIRS program that you can run on your Windows PC.

This first video explains those 4 rules about locating Gold and shows how that is easily understood using Tengraph WEB and GeoMap on your PC.

Gold Prospecting and metal detecting is an awesome hobby. It is the only hobby that can put a few bucks in your pocket when you are travelling around WA in your caravan.

When you're retired those few extra dollars can be very helpful.

We have been teaching gold prospecting to people for 5 years to hundreds of people at our seminars in Cue and on our free website Gold Prospecting WA Website

The Reason WHY we have created the online GeoMap Training.

We cant get to everyone with the seminars because we only train 10 people at each seminar. So, we want to spread the knowledge further to those who miss out.

Down below on this page there is a form that you can enter your email address. You are on the mailing list for the newsletter but not all will want this specific information about online Geomap Training .

If you want to be on the GeoMap Training Contact list fill the form out and we will send you details when we open registration for the Online Geomap Training.

NOTE. If you filled in this form from the last newsletter you do not need to do it again - you are now on that mailing list and will receive a newsletter with the link to this training separately.

Free Training Videos to be Sent to you Over the next few weeks.

  • Video 1 answers Question 1 - "Where to find or Target Gold in WA."
  • Video 2 answers Question 2 - "Where am I (Legally) allowed to Find Gold in WA."

That page will also provide a link to a 'Early Bird GeoMap Training List" if you are interested in online training in Tengraph Web and GeoMap.

We have been working hard for two years to get GeoMap training online for those that cannot attend our Gold Prospecting Seminars in Cue WA - our training is more about how prospectors (You) use GeoMap practically in the field to find gold and know where all the tenements are and EXACTLY where you are on the ground.

It was to be released in January but the changes to the download of tenements ESRI shapefiles and other links that DMIRS did meant that many of the lessons and videos have to be rewritten and reshot .

We are in the process of doing that now and building the new website called - it will be available later this month.
