Join with us for a spot of relic and coin hunting at the site of a 1880s ‘ghost town’ in North Queensland. We have a look at a bit of the unique history of the site and also interesting fossils dating back some 400 million years. We hope you enjoy our day out on a (relatively) wintery North Queensland day. Please note that some areas of this site are heritage listed, and that no relic hunting was carried out in these designated zones. Happy Fossicking! Colleen and Warren.
Join with us on our 8th and final sortie to a WW2 R.A.A.F. Operational Air Base. We have done well over 100 hours metal detecting the main camp area and the finds in this video reflect all that prior activity. To this end, we have included some ‘bonus footage’ after the outing, highlighting some of the ‘live digs’ and looking back at our time on the site. We hope you enjoy this last trip to a spot which we have enjoyed exploring over the last 2 years or so. Happy Fossicking! Colleen and Warren.
Our next video will the final outing to a WW2 RAAF forward operational air base on Cape York. We have done well over 100 hours detecting the Squadron Camp area and have made some great finds over the course of 8 filmed outings. Finds are, however, dropping away (due to our own efforts!) – and a return visit is unlikely, unless research reveals a new and undiscovered area we have not visited. We will include some highlights of the previous 7 trips in this ‘Final Sortie’ video. Thanks for watching our videos – Colleen and Warren.
ATX Gold – Our mate FNQ Chris’s first nugget, 0.6gm of beautiful Palmer River Gold. The nugget was detected in very hot ground at 10-15cm (4-6″) with the stock ATX DD coil in an area that had been well visited by detectorists over the years.
