The day produces some great coin & relic finds, along with a real surprise find made by Colleen with the ACE 300i on her very first outing. We also run through the new features on the updated ACE range. Happy Fossicking! Colleen & Warren.

“Snakes, Spiders & Silver”: Metal Detecting with the Garrett AT Pro International.


Join with us on yet another sortie into one of our favourite WW2 Australian Army Camp areas. On this outing it is more about the Aussie wildlife than anything, a close encounter with a sizeable snake (unfortunately not on camera) & its aftermath, numerous spiders and not to mention the swarming ticks & mites, all in search of our WW2 history. Some nice militaria comes to light including a beautiful silver sixpence on this bush adventure. Thanks for watching and subscribing! Warren and Colleen

Thanks for watching and subscribing. Warren and Colleen.

Historic Palmer River Adventure: Garrett AT Gold.


On this outing we are joined by fellow prospector and relic hunter Glen as we explore the historic Palmer River area of North Queensland. The purpose of the trip was to detect a number of old mining camps Glen had discovered in the area and some great relics come to light. Among the finds, our oldest coin to date – a medieval Chinese ‘Two Cash’ cast brass coin dating from AD 1068. We also go in search of lost gold mines in a very remote area of the Palmer region.

All detecting was carried out on a private lease with permission – a big thank you to Glen for organizing the trip and providing the transport. Happy Fossicking everyone! Warren and Glen.

WW2 Metal Detecting: “GREEN ANT RIDGE”: Second Assault: Garrett AT Gold.


Despite summer heat and voracious resistance from the local Green Ants, we make a return to the site of a WW2 camp which has yielded some nice coins and relics. In this outing we unearth the second (lower) piece of a Digger’s Identity Disc, along with bronze and silver coins, with a silver surprise at the very end. Thanks for watching and subscribing! Colleen and Warren.

Metal Detecting “GREEN ANT RIDGE”: Part 3 of 3: Garrett AT Pro International.


We round out the Centenary of ANZAC Year (1915-2015) with a three-part relic hunt focusing on North Queensland WW2 camp areas. Battling ferocious Green Ants, Colleen makes her debut behind the camera on the backup Lumix FT-10 and we are joined by veteran detectorist George from the NQ Miner’s Den. The day uncovers some King George V and VI coins, ‘AUSTRALIA’ shoulder flashes and WW2 webbing brass. Also uncovered is an Australian Army Identity Disc which we will attempt to return to the Digger’s family. These hunts are presented ‘as is’ – with the scrap targets included, to illustrate that metal detecting isn’t all about the great finds but rather the privilege to walk in the footsteps of the Diggers that went before us. Thanks for watching! Colleen and Warren (and George).
