The Second World War – Then and Now.

With the current world situation and everyone retreating behind their respective borders, we thought it would be a good time to make some comparisons to the rationing and isolation on the Home Front in WW2. Be warned there is a lot of chatting here before we get into action. Yes we do actually do some metal detecting in this video with a nice WW2-era silver coming to light. Stay safe with your families everyone, check on your neighbours and mates – and watch metal detecting videos!

Please join with us in the first instalment of our recent U.S. adventure with Team Garrett.

An Australian Bush Cemetery.

Please join us for the second of our ‘Historical Walkthrough’ videos. This time we venture deep into the Great Dividing Range of New South Wales and visit a tiny Pioneer Bush Cemetery which served a gold and silver mining community. The town was wiped out in the bushfires of 1939 and was never rebuilt. It is a poignant reminder of the harsh conditions faced by our hardy pioneers in the late 19th Century.

Bush Cricket Silver! A silver Quartet.

Team NQE hits a long forgotten bush cricket ground dating from the early 1920s and unearths a run of old silver, plus some nice jewellery no doubt deposited in the Members Area by the lady friends of the ‘Bush 11’ who won the toss an elected to field. The gale force winds on the day didn’t just interfere with the audio, they almost tore the awning off the Land Rover (which in retrospect probably shouldn’t have been deployed in the first place).

Metal Detecting ‘Hunted Out’ Sites.

If you are new to the hobby, this video may be helpful in getting you started as we do get a lot of questions regarding the sites we visit and how we approach them. Alternatively, as an experienced detectorist you may be familiar with some of these techniques or have developed your own methods for dealing with these situations. We will be uploading further videos similar to this one dealing with advanced discrimination and tips on researching new areas. Thanks for watching, subscribing and commenting on the video. You can also contact us directly on Facebook where we are happy to answer any of your questions. Happy Fossicking!

Metal Detecting Pioneer Relics – The ‘Lost Valley’ in Winter.

This video was filmed in the (Southern) Winter of 2019 and although it may not qualify as ‘lost footage’ it was delayed in production as we have been travelling so much this year, including filming the series of videos with Beau in September/October. It is without question way too long at over 30 minutes with plenty of ‘real time live’ digs – but some great history is unearthed, reflecting the way of life of our hardy pioneers that built the inland infrastructure of 19th Century Australia.

Colleen’s Trade Token & Great Scott! It’s 1885!

Having been detecting for many years and unearthing literally thousands of coins and relics, it’s taken until 2019 for Colleen to score her first 19th Century Trade Token! This is no comment on her ability, more the areas we usually search – as Trade Tokens were outlawed before most of inland and northern Queensland was settled in the mid and late 1870s. Some other nice 19th Century finds also come to light in this little adventure filmed over two visits to the inland goldfields of Queensland. Thanks for watching and subscribing, and please feel free to comment on our video! All the very best and Happy Fossicking!
