Where can I get Equipment?? Empty Where can I get Equipment??

Post  Macca Tue Jan 12, 2010 5:40 pm

Hi all

I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction. I'm off on a prospecting trip in 4 weeks time and can't seem to find anywhere in Brisbane or close by that sells any prospecting equipment. Treasure Enterprises are shut until March which is a shame as I leave for PNG in Feb. Is there anywhere in Gympie?
As I am a newbie, any advice on necessary equipment would be appreciated. I'll be panning in creeks up there on a fairly remote island in Milne Bay so was thinking pan/sluice box??

I can't help you up that way unless you order online But I hope you have some security arrangements. PNG can be a dangerous place if you are a prospector.

Thanks for your replies Kev, I paid Dave from Gympie Army Disposals a visit and he hooked me up with a Minelab detector. I think it should definately do the job. Quite a helpful and a nice guy I might add.
