Hello all, thanks for letting me join the forum.

Absolute newbie based in suburban Melbourne - interested in gold prospecting, love being outside in the bush, have a 4WD, not doing this to make my fortune, but have had a life long interest in gold prospecting. Having an excuse to get outside is the primary driver - once we see the back of this damned pandemic. I have been very lucky to have seen a lot of Australia (& the world) in my working life.

Have not bought any books or equipment yet. Thinking of a Minelab Equinox 800 and will see what happens if I can master how to use it - still researching.

Tips/advice appreciated.

Doug Stone book "Metal detecting for gold in Australia" - thoughts?

Cheers

Ozvino (Dave)

Don't just limit yourself to detecting I started back in the sixties panning rivers and creeks lot of fun and just as rewarding
