Format and Structure of Seminar/Tagalong Metal Detecting Tours

On the first 2 days, Saturday and Sunday we will cover metal detecting, equipment, coils, settings, Tengraph Web, WA Geology and Geomap training.

That is conducted in the airconditioned St John Ambulance training rooms at the street behind the Caravan Park in Cue.

On the third day, Monday, we go bush looking for gold at a gold mining lease or tenement around the Cue Goldfields depending on availability and weather conditions.

Udo, Sue and I will be walking with you and looking over your shoulders, offering support and practical training while you are metal detecting on this day, we want to make sure your techniques are the best to enable you to find gold..

We also stop on the way to discuss the local Geology and do a practical exercise on Geomap Tracking and Saving Tracks to make sure you gain practical experience in this task.

This day will also give you the opportunity to check track conditions and camping spots before if you wish to spending more time in the area on a Section 40E Permit or where there is pending and vacant ground.

On the Monday you provide your own Detecting equipment, food and refreshments tagalong style - Metal Detectors are available for hire on this day if you need one.

Saturday Night BBQ at Udo's House

On the Saturday night we will have a BBQ at Udos and your partners (and metal detecting companions if they are not doing the seminar) are welcome - you provide your own meat and drinks and we will provide the salads, condiments and so on. Meat packs will be available to purchase if you want one.
