So where, precisely, are gold prospecting locations where you can find gold - that's probably your question now that you have an understanding of what gold is and how it is formed. Information from other pages on the site.
The AIM of RESEARCH to find out where the gold locations are OR Where there is a potential for Gold Nugget or Alluvial Deposits.
Udo and I run gold prospecting seminars in Cue to explain the WA Geology and how to target gold. In particular how knowing this information, linking it to the understanding of Geological Maps and technology can help you target potential gold locations.
We have also been involved in developing software and information over the last few years to help you target potential gold locations more easily, using computer technology.
One exciting technology product we have been involved in is GoldTracker Software which enables you to select a point on a map and see exactly what the potential of finding gold in that location is.
This is how the score of gold prospectivity (Potential for Gold Occurrence!) is calculated and allocated over 1 million locations in WA.
The gold prospectivity score in Goldtracker is assessed using a number of criteria;
The GoldTracker database immediately assesses the prospectivity for Gold Mineralisation of over 1 million locations in WA and provides a prospectivity score for that location. Even Better, if the area you have chosen has a poor prospectivity score, THEN YOU JUST ASK FOR THE NEAREST BEST POTENTIAL LOCATION.
Right now Goldtracker is a simple web interface that you click on a map and select a position you would like assessed for Gold Potential (or ask for the nearest Best Potential location) but in future it will also be available as a phone APP with many other enhancements.
However, if you love spending time on research there is a multitude of information sources and software that can help you find gold in western Australia.
There is plenty of well Documented, easily accessible, free and paid product material such as the software and information below.
There are more methods of research that you can do at local gold fields towns.
