Gold In WA App

We built this Gold in WA App to help new gold prospectors and metal detectorists find gold in WA and navigate the complex rules and Laws relating to Gold prospecting in West Australia.

Get and Use "Gold In WA" App

With COVID there has been a massive spike in people travelling within West Australia.

They want new bush and camping adventures that and many want to go metal detecting and find some Gold Nuggets.

We estimate their could be up to 40000 people gold prospecting in WA during the prospecting Season from April to October in WA.

We have had a huge growth in people asking the basic questions about

- "Where can I find gold?" and

-"Where can I do it legally without fear?"

This app has been built for you so you can have a quick view of where to find gold and the rules for prospecting in WA.

It is a Progressive Web App (PWA) that can be used on Android phones, IPhones and tablets and on your desktop.

The GOLDINWA App can be used as a reference:

  • For you to give the information or QR code to others that may just be starting out in Prospecting and need to know the basic information.
  • And - Its Free.
