Happy new year to every body..... Im a new boy in Brisbane that knows absolutely nothing about detecting so if my question seems stupid please bear with me.
As I am in brisbane I was wondering where near here apart from warwick would be a place to look for gold. What about Gympie I know that there is actually a working mine in the town, is there any reason why the areas around Gympie would not be a great spot to detect?
cheers

Hi Artrix

Get yourself a copy of "Gold Prospecting ' by Doug Stone, even an older version. It lists all the locations around Brisbane and all over Australia. Its a good way of starting your research. Doug lists 15 areas, including Warwick, Stanthorpe, Pratten, Bankers Hill near Toowoomba, Nanango.

Many maybe on private land, in creeks and on beachs, but by going for a drive and having a look, you will get an idea of what the gold fields look like, the areas nearby, and what you may need to access them. It will be all fun and interesting.

Detrack,
Well done with your data sharing, very appreciated.
I'm gonna be bold and ask if you've got any clues for the Gold Coast or FarNthNSW.
I've got the usual points from the DPI but You seem to have more points than I've got.
Thanks

Wow Detrackozi you have obviously done some research here. Thanks again for your replies I must admit I wouldnt know where to start looking if it was up to me.
I wonder if any of these sites would be worth running a detector over ???

Those numbers are Eastings & Northings UTM coordinate system, just set google earth to UTM in the options and you will see the same sort of numbers.
