Ghost Town Exploration: 1800s Silver Mining Community.

In this video we team up with good mate and NQ detecting legend George Mayer (of the renowned NQ Miner’s Den) and spend a day in a ghost town that served a silver mine and smelter from around 1888 until 1899. Lots of buttons and Victoriana and a nice silver 3d come to light in glorious North Queensland spring weather. Thanks for watching and subscribing!

Tropical Beach Coin Spill: Garrett Apex Australia.

In this impromptu beach visit which we filmed on our recent 3,000km road trip we recover a big 1980s-era decimal coin spill, plus an unusual addition in the form of a 1953 French 20 Franc coin. Garrett Apex in Multi-Salt (MS) mode punches deep with outstanding depth and coin recoveries in wet salt sand regularly in the 12-15″ range. Due to short-sighted packing no sand scoop was available so we used our trusty prospecting picks, as it turns out not a bad thing in the coarse coral sand. Thanks for watching and subscribing!

Garrett APEX: Beach – Bush -Goldfields.

In this video we test drive the all-new Garrett Mutli-Frequency, Multi-Salt APEX metal detector, overlanding more than 500km in three days from the salt water beaches of the Gold Coast to the highly mineralised goldfields of Queensland, Australia. The new machine proves to have outstanding salt water detection qualities (Multi-Salt mode) making it a superb beach machine, while Multi-Frequency hits big deep silver and 20kHz delivers on our small gold nugget in highly mineralised soil. At almost 40 minutes this video is a lot to take in so you may need salty snacks and some kind of refreshing beverage to get you through it. Short cuts to each part of the video: Beach: 0.00 Bush: 15:41 Goldfields: 33:02 Thanks for watching and subscribing and Happy Fossicking!
