Historic Gold In GeoVIEW

A Few Short Years ago only Mining Companies had the Analytical Power of GeoVIEW.

Now you can access it completely free from the Department of Mines in WA to use it for analysis .

I remember  when I first started working out where to find gold, the weeks and months spent researching data.

Reading geological texts and goldmining books, pulling Maps, drillhole data, company annual reports, mining sampling data and geological reports together to to target gold locations in WA took massive amounts of time and experience.

Then you had to convert that knowledge to GPS points and maps and add it to Aussie Explorer and Google Earth to understand where to go to find a bit of gold and how to get there.

On top of that you then had to understand where you were allowed to go  and here you were on the ground.

Now, you can find gold mines in  GeoVIEW with a few clicks in minutes now, then share the data with your friends or turn it into shapefiles for use in Geomap in the field.
