Hi all, I am looking into perhaps buying a metal detector and doing some fossicking. I am retired and look forward to some light duties with my wife. I hope I will get plenty of advice here as I have many questions! what sort of detector to buy, what pans, sieves or other equipment is needed. then how do you do it!

Get yourself a Minelab 4500 $3500 new

Thanks for the welcomes,
patience is what concerns me, I have embraced the modern world of instant! however my wife is very patient Wink

Is the Minelab 5000 worth the extra money?
I don't know of any clubs in my neck of the woods, but only yesterday I discovered a local bloke who has been gold detecting for 30 yrs and he said he would take me out for a day and share his knowledge once I have a detector.

Gods Money,
5000 probably worth the extra for the fine gold timing.
Check out the posts on here.(mind you i haven't graduated from the 4500)
you can pick up second hand 45's for $2500-$3000, or 4000 for 2k
At the end of the day you gotta walk over it to find it.
If it isn't there doesn't matter what machine you have.
Re patience, check out the posts on how long people have taken to find their first nuggets.(think i was about 6mths)
Its worth the wait though
