Hi all, recently joined the forum but have read plenty of helpful posts here already.

Me and a mate have been prospecting for about 5 years (2 day trip/year).

In the past we've been to Wedderburn, Kingower, Dunolly etc.

I'm the researcher/location finder etc so can anyone suggest the best mapping software (Paid or Free), links, tips etc that can help us with our quest. I know of the Earth Resources Publications etc.

If anyone could help it would be much appreciated.

Thanks Empty handed.

Welcome empty handed, It's a tough gig these days to find a bit of colour Sad
Even the most experienced guys here in vic are finding it harder each year?
I can go a week or two with out any finds and that's putting in average of 2 hours most days and most are sub gramers .
Don't get disheartened ,enjoy the process the trip the bush and the solitude including the bugs Laughing Laughing
Good luck cheers

cheers moredeep

ps I haven't done any good at Dunolly either

I have been looking for 10+ years and have never found any AU so know exactly how you feel, but have found gems

I have been to Maryborough GT with no joy and I have now found a guy who says 80% chance I would find a nugget with him in a 1 2 1 situation around GT

When you find a few nugs. will you be telling anyone were to go ???

Its just human nature, plus in SA it is illegal to sell them if you can find them.

I will send u an IM so we can take it offline
