HI ALL.

My Name is Malcolm, and I have been a member of the forum for a few mts now, and throughly enjoy reading and hopefully obsorbing
the info on this site, sure is a lot of experance and know how here. I am just starting out in this as a hobby, and am in the prosess
of trying to sauce out a sd2200 or a Gp3000 as an entry level Detector.(The Minister for Finance has a limit in place.) So far I have only
contacted Nuggets Down Under and they said they would keep an eye out, and let me know if something comes up. I will contact Coiltek,
next and see if they have anything. I guess no great hurry but I went Panning a couple of days ago and managed to snare a few small
bits and now I am keener then ever. We are in Bingara NSW at the moment and will be heading south for a while, we are traveling around
AUS for a year or 2 or 6 and hopefully will get to catch up with some of you .

Regards MAL AND KERRY.

Hi Malco,
Exiting times........my last big trip was from here in the West to Cooktown (23,000km)great fun( I like Hervey Bay)........don't forget to detect all the beaches.....if you do them with a 2200+, use a salt coil.....and/or buy an el-cheapo
VLF machine....just watch out for "needles" on the more popular beaches.
Enjoy.

Same, good luck with the findings. I'm on a road trip for a year or few as well and detecting when ever I get the chance. Maybe I'll see you around some time. Warrnambool beach has nothing on it except old spikes and nails and a few old cans from what I have found so far. Not sure about the water line because my detector won't discriminate out the salt. I think there are others that do it on a regular basis but leave the rubbish behind. I hope you do better than I seem to so far. Let us know of your finds when u start swinging,
Greg.

Thanks for the welcome, I went to Bora creek to'day and panned for a couple of hrs , no colour(can't count 1 small speck)but had a good time anyway.
Tomorrow off to Upper Bingara, there is a small gold mine still operating, so at least I know I'm in the right area. The Rivers
and creeks have been in flood for a couple of days ,but have now settled down.

Regards Mal.

G'day Malco,

Good to hear you had a win recently, and great to hear that you're so excited. I'm very new to this and am yet to find anything, even a spec would light up my face at this stage. Still plenty out there though, I just have to put my shovel in the right spot I guess.

Happy hunting.

Hi Malco. We stayed a couple of nights last august at the 3Creeks Gold Mine at Upper Bingurra. Hot showers and toilets, top little camping spot. Paul is a top bloke, full of knowledge and for a small fee will teach you how to pan in the creek. We enjoyed our stay there and found a little bit of gold. Hoping to call there again this winter on our way home from Townsville. Cheers Grumpy.

Hi Diggerdave and Grumpy

Well a change of location certainly made a difference, it's just lucky the rules are not the same as fishing, if I had to throw
the small ones back,I would have come home empty handed. LOL. I will see if I can post a photo. (not good quality sorry)
We are leaving for TAMWORTH Tomorrow.

Regards MAL.
No luck with photo, will try and work it out.
