Metal Detecting the Outback: Cricket Buckles! Garrett AT Pro International.

Join with us for a four-hour detecting excursion to an outback ‘ghost town’ that was first settled in the 1880s. We have been to the site on several occasions previously, but on this trip the finds come in thick and fast – a ‘buckle day’, as we recover two magnificent ‘Cricket Buckles’, plus two other ornate Victorian dress buckles, a Victorian Halfpenny and various other historic relics. Thanks for watching and subscribing! Colleen and Warren.

‘Gold Leaf’ Nugget with the Garrett ATX.

A short video illustrating our latest nugget find with the Garrett ATX, a lovely folded ‘gold leaf’ nugget (the ‘Baby Eagle’), although quite a respectable size it weighed in at a modest 1.85gm due to its very flat and thin, folded leaf gold configuration. The nugget was unearthed on a creek bank bordering a highly mineralized zone comprising ironstone and quartz rubble. Of interest was the fact that there were no ‘old timers’ workings anywhere near the find, so the area warrants more attention. Due to the ancient geology of the area, many of the quartz reefs themselves are long gone, leaving just mineralized rubble and the occasional gold nugget. We have added some scenery from the goldfield to put the find in context. Thanks for watching and subscribing! Colleen and Warren.

Ghost Town Relic Hunt: 1866 Silver! Garrett AT Pro International.

Join with us deep in the Great Dividing Range of North Queensland for our third visit to the site of a long-abandoned silver mining town and smelter. On this trip our faithful Land Rover stayed at home and we hitched a lift with our brother-in-law Peter in his Patrol. Once again we did a lot of tea-drinking and chatting and exploring along with the detecting – the finds are always a bonus when you have such a great day in the Aussie bush! Resident local Heath makes a return with his Garrett ACE150 and makes some nice finds too. Thanks for watching. Colleen and Warren.

Centenary of ANZAC Military Relic Hunt (Part 2): Garrett AT Pro International.


Our commemoration of the Centenary of ANZAC continues as we make a return visit one of our favourite WW2 camp areas, and are rewarded to find some recent clearing activity has opened up a hitherto ‘undetectable’ area.

As we both have close relatives who fought in both World Wars, military relic hunting, and the preservation of the relics and the memories of those conflicts, are very close to our hearts. LEST WE FORGET. Colleen & Warren, Queensland, Australia.

Metal Detecting WW2 Australian Army 2/21st Camp: Garrett AT Pro International.

We return to one of our favourite sites where we battle the usual long grass but still manage to turn up some nice WW2 relics, including a ‘Rising Sun’ General Service Badge, an ‘AUSTRALIA’ shoulder flash, and a small dump of medical bottles, along with the usual webbing items and live .303 rounds. We hope you enjoy this outing in relatively tough detecting conditions. Happy Fossicking! Colleen and Warren.
