Hi there,

New to this forum thing, never been apart of one before so here I am to get some help. I am new to the game. I was in WA Kalgoorlie where I got my self a second hand GP3500. Not cheep but I guess I needed all the help to get a good start. I only used it half a dozen time tying to learn how to us it but never found any gold. Not to say I never brushed over it just did not pick it up as I know where I was going there was gold to be found. The thing is I left WA and have moved to Dawin NT. What I want to know is where can I go. Is there any one in the NT that knows?
Going bush is not a new thing for me. I'm been a farm work most my life and also a shooter pig . I have lived and worked on large stations but none with gold lol. I'm new to the top end and would like to find some where I can go. Is there permits I need for the top end?

Any info would be grate Thanks bounce

What! You're a shooter? So you've been responsible for heaps of our wasted time digging 22's & shotgun pellets?

I can't help you with locations for digging gold up north, I wish I could. But are you kidding, you've dropped bunches of false targets for us? Evil or Very Mad

All the best Wags76. Very Happy

Hi Wags76,

A quick google search is in order I think. I found a link to get you started ...

According to this there is gold up there and you do need a permit (from what I read briefly). Also, to better get to know your machine I would consider joining a club. Here's a link for the NT Club ...

Hope this helps you on your way and best of luck.
