Gold Prospecting Lessons

One of the main questions we are asked in emails is "Do you provide Gold Prospecting Lessons or metal detecting training or tours?" The next one is "Where can I find Gold at...'Location'?". These questions are closely followed by "Where am I allowed to go Metal Detecting in WA?.

Why Gold Prospecting Lessons?

Many people get excited about the price of gold and the lure of finding a big gold nugget or massive gold find and they just want to know the basic knowledge to get into gold prospecting and metal detecting in WA.

They want to fast track the knowledge and skills needed so they don't have to spend years gaining experience.

People also do not want to make expensive purchases like buying the Minelab 5000 or GPZ7000 metal detectors without really understanding how to use it or whether the gold prospecting hobby is what they want to do. (Dunno why! We love it!)

That is totally understandable and we think that was driving the email and phone questions we were getting about whether we will be providing Gold Prospecting Lessons and metal detecting tours in the future.

What do People Really Want in Gold Prospecting Lessons?
