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.
