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.
On the first detecting adventure of our US tour, we join with veteran relic hunters Steve Moore, Sham Bonner and Randy Schuh on ‘Artillery Hill’ in beautiful East Tennessee. Some great Civil War finds come to light, including Union coat buttons, knapsack brass, buckles, shell frags and some nice dropped bullets and ‘camp lead’. We also visit the historic Holston River Bridge, Strawberry Plains, which changed hands between Confederate and Union forces several times during the war. We hope you enjoy our first day detecting in the field in the U.S.A. A big thanks to Steve Moore from Garrett for organizing this hunt, and to Sham and Randy for allowing us on their permission. Also a big thank you to Reece Muru from Garrett Australia for his great camera work. Please set your YouTube viewer to 720 HD for this video. www.garrett.com www.garrettaustralia.com.au
Our next stop on the U.S. tour is the Garrett Factory in Garland, Texas. Here we have a look around the Garrett Museum before being shown around the production facilities by Mr Vaughan Garrett and Mr Bob Podhrasky. The full range of Garrett metal detectors are manufactured here under one roof, from initial concept and engineering design through to development, production and shipping worldwide. We hope you enjoy this tour as much as we did. www.garrett.com www.garrettaustralia.com.au
