1880s Australian Ghost Town & Silver Smelter. Garrett AT Pro.

Join with us deep in the Great Dividing Range of North Queensland at the site of a long-abandoned silver mining town and smelter. We did a lot of tea-drinking and chatting and exploring and not a lot of detecting, but nevertheless some nice finds came to light, and we meet up with 12-year-old Heath who picks up a nice silver sixpence with his Garrett ACE 150. George Mayer from the NQ Miners Den was also along on a great day out. Thanks for watching. Colleen and Warren.

Join with us again prospecting in the Sierra Nevadas of California with Garrett ATX and AT Gold metal detectors. On this occasion we explored the Forks of Butte Creek. No nuggets came to light but we got some nice California gold in the pan and enjoyed the cameraderie of like-minded prospectors. As a bonus Dave shows us a half-ounce nugget he detected previously with his AT Gold. A big thank you to Joey Wilson, Adventures in Prospecting of Oroville, CA, for organizing this great adventure. Also thanks to Steve Moore from Garrett, and Recce Muru of Garrett Australia for his great camera work.

Metal Detecting First World War Ghost Town: Garrett AT Pro.

Hidden deep in the Australian bush is an abandoned settlement that serviced a molybdenum mine during the period of the First World War. Molybdenum from the mine was exported to England for use in armour plating – the early British tanks were clad in molybdenum steel armour. Scant surface remains and the occasional broken bottle mark the site of this small town which probably had a population never exceeding 50 people. Some nice old relics come to light during the day. We hope you enjoy sharing this experience with us – Happy Fossicking! Colleen and Warren.
