Went to a old abandoned mine in south Australia found some interesting rocks and thought id go through them with everyone. Some times that one rock you walk over ten time that looks like nothing can be very rich in minerals inside if you brake it open. Loads of copper and pyrite
Finding gold with the Coiltek ELITEs in South Australia
 
05:02
Here is a video of some time I spent away using and testing coils hunting for Gold. A great mate and I were fortunate enough to host Gordon Heritage from the UK so he could find his first Australian nugget. Nothing big found but it certainly was some great fun and the ELITE coils performed perfectly. Hope you enjoy it - Trevor.

How to Find and Pan for Diamonds
 
13:42
We went to a location famous for gold where diamonds had previously also been found. Diamonds are best sourced using a gold pan in conjunction with a fine sieve as most alluvial diamonds tend to be very small in size.

Gippsland Again... ⛏ Gold Prospecting Australia
 
16:16
Headed back to my good old spot in Gippsland for some panning, crevicing, and sluicing. Was hoping for some good gold (read: pickers), but things don't always go to plan. I ended up with some colour in the pan at the end of the day so the day was in a fact a success...just not as much of a success as one might hope for. Nonetheless, I'm happy...despite losing another camera to the creek. haha. sigh. As always, thanks for watching. I really do appreciate it.

GOLD MINING IN SOUTHERN CROSS THE LAST THIRTY YEARS
 
07:57
Thomas Risely¹s account of the discovery gives an insight into the hardships which were to confront the settlers of the area. Myself, Toomey and Charlie Crossland, started out from our camp at Barcoyton. After prospecting the belt for some days our water gave out. Our blackboy whom I call Wheelbarrow, said he knew plenty of Gabby (water) at Koorkoordine. When we got to Koorkoordine we found one of Hunt¹s dry wells, just as dry as we were. We decided to start back through the night and return to our camp, distance about 40 miles, and we travelled by the Southern Cross - taken to stars to the north - thanks to Charlie Crossland¹s knowledge of the stars. Or our bones would be bleaching in the scrub now, as we were two days without water at this time. We had to remain at our camp until rains came, them myself and Mick Toomey set out again. We discovered gold four miles from Koorkoordine. I named the place Southern Cross.¹ There was a small goldrush but it was short-lived (this was an area of reef gold not alluvial gold) because on 17 September 1892 a young Queenslander, Arthur Wellesly Bayley, rode into Southern Cross with 554 oz of gold which he had discovered at Fly Flat (now Coolgardie). The discovery started the greatest gold rush in West Australian history. Overnight the miners who had flocked to the Southern Cross diggings moved to the more lucrative eastern fields. The town¹s growth was dramatic but it was never a boisterous centre like Coolgardie or Kalgoorlie. In 1891 the Eastern Goldfields first courthouse was built. By 1893 it had become a municipality. And in 1894 the railway arrived giving the town fast and reliable access to the coast. Today the area produces oats, barley, wheat, sheep and gold but the average annual rainfall of 279 mm means that the land is marginal. In recent times the fluctuating price of gold has seen renewed interest in the Southern Cross area with both Broken Hill Metals NL and Golden Valley Mines NL being the main operators in the region

Hidden Valley (documentary)
 
22:40
A people speak out for their river, and for their future. The Hidden Valley gold and silver mine in the Morobe Province is affecting communities living along the Watut River, a long and fast-flowing river in the lush mountains of Papua New Guinea. In this evocative and beautifully shot short documentary we hear how indigenous models of development are clashing with those imposed by mining companies and government when they are not listening to local landowners. “Is this development for the benefit of local people or for the shareholders in Australia and South Africa?” – Howard Sindana in Hidden Valley. We hear from a diverse range of local community representatives, community workers and landowners including Reuben Mete from the Union of Watut River Communities and from Dr. Gavin Mudd, an environmental engineer, as they describe the impacts of this jointly Australian - South African owned mine as well as the way forward to a more sustainable future. Premiered at on 5th September 2013 at the Environmental Film Festival Melbourne, Australia.

Boom Town To Ghost Town ( Coolgardie )
 
04:26
Coolgardie is a small town in Western Australia, 558 kilometres (347 mi) east of the state capital, Perth. It has a population of approximately 1,000 people.[1] Although Coolgardie is now known to most Western Australians as a tourist town and a mining ghost town, it was once the third largest town in Western Australia (after Perth and Fremantle). At this time, mining of alluvial gold was a major industry and supplied the flagging economy with new hope. Many miners suffered under the harsh conditions, but for a few, their finds made the hard work worthwhile. Most men, however, left poorer than they had started off, with their hopes dashed. The town was founded in 1892, when gold was discovered in the area.[4] Australia had seen several major gold rushes over the previous three decades, mostly centred on the east coast, but these had mostly been exhausted by the 1890s. With the discovery of a new goldfield, an entire new gold rush began, with thousands flocking to the area. By 1898, Coolgardie was the third largest town in the colony, with an estimated population of 5,008 (3,151 men and 1,857 women).[5] At its peak, 700 mining companies based in Coolgardie were registered with the London Stock Exchange. The town also supported a wide variety of businesses and services, including the railway connection between Perth and Kalgoorlie,[6] a swimming pool (first public baths in the state), many hotels and several newspapers. The value of Coolgardie to the colony in the late 1890s was so very significant that it was used as leverage to force Western Australia to join the Australian federation - Britain and the eastern colonies threatened to create a new state to be named Auralia around Coolgardie and other regional goldfields, such as Kalgoorlie, if the government in Perth did not agree to hold a referendum on federation. The Western Australian government reluctantly complied and a referendum was held just in time to become a founding state in the new federation. When federation did occur in 1901, Coolgardie was the centre of a federal electorate, the Division of Coolgardie. Soon after in November 1901, Alf Morgans from the state electorate of Coolgardie briefly became Premier of Western Australia. Albert Thomas, also of Coolgardie, was elected the first Member of Dundas, an electoral division south of Coolgardie. However, the gold began to decrease in the early 1900s, and by World War I, the town was in serious decline. The federal electorate was abolished in 1913 due to the diminished population, as many of its residents left for other towns where the gold was still plentiful, and it soon ceased to be a municipality. The situation remained unchanged throughout the century, as its population slipped to around 200 and it became a virtual ghost town. An example of this decline is that, in March 1896, Coolgardie's main street was lit by an electric light, but by April 1924, the same street was lit by four hurricane lamps. Despite this, many of the buildings from the town's peak were retained, which in recent years has helped start a small revival in the town's fortunes. The development of a tourist industry has once again created some employment in the town, resulting in a small increase in population. Coolgardie appears to be no longer in danger of dying. _____________________________________ Music By - Midnight Oil.

Lets look back to an early time of a gold rush that shaped NSW - Hillend & Tambaroora
 
24:24
An early look back on the historic gold mining towns of Hill End and Tambaroora courtesy of History Hill living museum http://historyhill.com.au/ Hill End - In the 1850s the Hill End area was known as Bald Hills. In 1860 a village was proclaimed, first as Forbes, then in 1862, it was altered to Hill End. In the early 1870s, Hill End took over Tambaroora as the main town in the area. Bernhardt Holtermann with the 630lb rock containing more than 75 percent gold from Hill End, unearthed in 1872 Hill End owes its existence to the New South Wales gold rush of the 1850s, and at its peak in the early 1870s it had a population estimated at 8,000 served by two newspapers, five banks, eight churches, and twenty-eight pubs. The town's decline when the gold gave out was dramatic: by 1945 the population was 700. At the 2006 census, Hill End had a population of 166, which now has dropped to 80 people during the year 2017. In October 1862 the Telegraph line reached Hill End (Tambaroora) from Bathurst via Sofala, the Telegraph Office opened for telegraph messages bringing the remote town into instant contact with the rest of the Colony. Prior to this event, communications took 12 hours by the mail stagecoach to Bathurst. After delays due to lack of materials a telephone line was installed into Hill End in 1914; after 60 years of Morse code telegraph messages, Hill End could now speak to adjacent towns and even Sydney if necessary. In 1923 a telephone exchange was installed at the Hill End Post Office; before this calls could only be made by the Post Office to other towns. The exchange allowed new telephones installed in businesses and private homes to connect locally and to other towns. Tambaroora - Up until the later part of 1852 the area near the junction of Golden Gully and Tambaroora Creek in the vicinity of the future Commissioners Camp later known as Camp Hill was referred to by correspondence and early miners as "The Stock Yards", another name associated with the future Town was Samuels Flat or Samuels Field, this was located immediately to the west of the Commissioners Camp between Golden Gully and Moonlight Gully/Creek and attracted rushes of miners with reports of gold being found there on more than one occasion. The 1852 Pastoral Map is annotated with "Samuels Flat" in the same area that a Stockyard was located, this Stockyard would have been Oakes Stockyard as it is mentioned by name in relation to rushes to the area. The roads in the district which were already established for pastoral usage merged in the vicinity of the future town, the road later known as the Escort Track entered the town at Clarke Street, the road to Cummings and Bundy Stations was at Mcmahon Street. There was also the road to Dirt Holes Creek and its continuance to Louisa Creek (present day Hargraves) and Richardsons Point (present day Windeyer) on its way north to Mudgee. A deciding factor in the siting of the Commissioners Camp would be its central location to the surrounding local goldfields of the Lower Turon, Bald Hills Creek, Golden Gully, The Stock Yards, Tambaroura Creek, Dirt Holes Creek and Green Valley This merging of tracks would have seen a concentration of those whose interest was in commercialization and not prospecting, hotels and stores soon occupied prime positions along the road between Golden Gully and Dirt Hole Creek with a scattering of Hotels and Stores in each of the local goldfields. Throughout 1852 an inrush of miners and associated industries saw the name Tambaroora Proper appear as a reference to this area, the "Proper" initially being added to distinguish it from the area of the same name. The town was a major hub for the gold mining and supporting industries in the district, its significance declined in the late 1860s when alluvial mining waned and later at the beginning of the 1870s when the focus moved from alluvial mining to reef mining on Hawkins Hill and around the young pup Hill End. Many revivals followed, the economic depression of the 1890s had a severe impact on the country and the world, many feeling the hardship made their way back to the fields to try their luck. In the 1890's an attempt was made by the government to revive the town, adjustments to the town boundary in the north east corner of the town saw new Lots surveyed and placed on the market, thou with little success, previously unsold Lots from the 1860s and 70s were once again advertised for sale on numerous occasions, and a new General Cemetery was surveyed and dedicated.

A DAYS JOURNEY -  IN SEARCH OF THE ELUSIVE GOLD NUGGETS DETECTING VICTORIA AUSTRALIA
 
01:14:10
Hi all, I wanted to film all day and put a days detecting together to show some new operators what it takes, the day didn't quite go to plan - as we know we cant control what targets we get. In saying that I certainly didn't want to change my strategy and go to a location where there is no gold just for the sake of a video with digging only junk all day. This day was great, not huge by any stretch of the imagination - but certainly a fun day. All days in the field are the same either way, we just enjoy them for what they are. Days like this certainly add to our enjoyment. I hope you all like the video - I tried to compress it the best I could rather than putting all the footage of roughly 6 hours into the video. I tried to capture some hard work sped up with a variety of the junk targets mixed in with the good finds. My apologies about some camera angles - next time I will remind myself camera angles as a high priority Dont forget to subscribe, like, comment and I will be sure to shoot a comment back. Cheers, Minelab Gold

Gold Prospecting with the Minelab GPZ 7000 - Introducing the "Zed Warble"
 
06:24
In this video I talk about a unique audio signal that the Minelab GPZ 7000 makes that I have dubbed "The Zed Warble". It is a unique and complex signal that the GPZ makes when it detects a metallic target like Gold. It is a signal that I discovered over time was a very important signal that the GPZ creates that is unlike previous detector technology. I have discovered that "The Zed Warble" is a tell-tale sign that there is "something there" that is NOT just ground noise. It's a great indicator that dismisses any doubt as to whether you are hearing a real target or not. This year in WA, once I realised what this signal was, I trained my ear to listen for it and found many many targets I would have other-wise missed. Learn this signal and you will find gold.

Gold Mining and Historical Museum - Gympie
 
13:34
Gympie is about 160 kilometres north of the state capital, Brisbane. The city lies on the Mary River, which floods the town periodically. At the 2011 census, Gympie had a population of 18,602. The Gympie Gold Mining and Historical Museum houses memorabilia from the early gold mining era, as well as displays showcasing military, rural, transport, communications, and steam development in Australia. The town of Gympie has an important and colourful history, from being cited as the "Town that saved Queensland from Bankruptcy" to being the home of Andrew Fisher, Labor's second Prime Minister. Everybody is invited to visit our Museum where you can find out just how Gympie saved Queensland and discover more of the region's past and present. The Museum houses a vast collection of documentation, artifacts and photographs dating from the discovery of gold in 1867 by James Nash to the recently closed operations of the Gympie Eldorado Goldmine. In 1867, James Nash discovered 72 ounces of Gold in just 6 days. This started the Gold Rush in Gympie and it became known as The Town that saved Queensland from Bankruptcy. Gympie has has seen the rush for alluvial gold, deep reef mining, reprocessing of tailings and the re-opening of the mines in the mid 1980s. With the recent cessation of mining, there still remains the lure of residual gold and there may well be more to come. You can learn all about this, and much more of Gympies colourful and historical past right here at the Museum. The site comprises over 5 hectares containing over 30 display areas in and around 15 major buildings. Gympie is heralded as the town that saved Queensland from bankruptcy due to drought and low wool prices back in the 1800s. Thanks to James Nash discovery of gold where the Gympie Town Hall now stands back in 1867, the Gold Rush was started. Within 6 months of James Nash’ windfall, over 15,000 men had raced to Gympie to dig for their fortunes. The town grew at a rapid rate and amazingly many of the original buildings are still there. Gympie's Gold Mining and Historical Museum showcases not only Gympie's rich gold mining history but also other aspects of the region's past era including steam machinery, agricultural, dairying, vehicles, gemstone and shell collections. Andrew Fisher House (named after Australia's second Labour Prime Minister 1908-1915) is part of the Museums collection of historical buildings housed with period furniture. Also the award winning Military Collection of the Fifth Light Horse Regiment which includes military equipment and memorabilia of all sons and daughters of the Gympie area that went to war. Try your luck at the Museum's Gold Panning and take home a specimen of Gympie Gold - a great time for the whole family. Tour groups welcome.

SOFALA NSW WHERE GOLD WAS FOUND DONE BY DRONE
 
01:46
Sofala is a village in New South Wales, Australia, 255 kilometres (158 mi) north-west of Sydney, within Bathurst Regional Council. It is located beside the Turon River. Sofala is just off the Bathurst-Ilford Road, with only local traffic through the town itself. At the 2006 census, Sofala had a population of 208. Turon River Near Sofala Sofala came about as a direct result of the gold rush which had been spurred on when Edward Hargraves discovered gold at Summerhill Creek on 12 February 1851. By June of that year, thousands of people had set up mining operations in the valley, and both the Royal Hotel and a general store were built in 1851 to handle the increased demand. Initially, gold was found in the area known as Gold Point on the Turon River. When the alluvial gold ran out, mining turned to quartz reef mining. The town was a centre of opposition to the gold licensing system in New South Wales at the time. A considerable proportion of the miners were Chinese. Sofala Public School was established in 1878. There was an Anglican church and a Catholic convent. The Convent opened in 1872 and closed in 1909, although it was a church until 1970. The Gas Hotel was one of the first two hotels licensed, in 1851. The Royal Hotel was established in 1862.There were also two other hotels in 1866, Sofala Inn and Barley Mow. The Barley Mow having a Cobb and Co booking office. Now a private residence, the Post Office and telegraph office, built in 1879 operated until 1989. Attractions today include the gold-rush-era Sofala Royal Hotel and the old gaol. Small-scale gold workings are still active in the town. Sofala has been reported to be the oldest surviving gold-rush town in Australia. There are still gold prospectors who pass the time using metal detectors, gold pans, and sluice boxes to recover small quantities of gold dust.

"Sapphire mining in Australia" by GIA
 
06:20
With this new short GIA field expedition video you will discover some aspects of the GIA Field Expedition FE67 that took place in June 2015 in order to visit sapphire and opal mining areas in Australia. On the sapphire side we started with Inverell in New South Wales, then moved to the Anakie sapphire field and finally to the Lava plains both of them in Queensland. Each time we were impressed with the technical knowledge about sapphire mining... Enjoy!

Gold Panning in creeks at Drake NSW Part 3
 
08:04
This is Part 3 of 3 video's that i shot by myself (yeah sorry for the camera) when i was out prospecting near Drake this weekend. I hope you like them. I did notice that there aren't many video's out there of beginners just trying out for first times. Not sure if I am doing it 100% right but we all learn and unfortunately i haven't see a whole lot on You tube after the last 2 years of me doing it so thought i would put some up of my own. Once again this is my first post and I hope it helps or i hope for some feedback if you are able too! Ta

Gold Nuggets In A Tree - The Ultimate Placer Gold Deposit
 
07:11
Gold nuggets in a tree? Our ultimate placer deposit delivers again! Could there be a record gold score at this placer deposit? Maybe a huge gold quartz vein? Huge gold nuggets and pickers found in all pans we did this trip. We found amazing chunky gold at the ultimate placer deposit inside a tree and more big chunky gold found on bedrock and In moss at our ultimate placer deposit. Gold found in every pan! We will be exploring this area further and hope to eventually find a bedrock exposure or vein which is producing the gold. Hope everyone enjoys the video and stay tuned for more!

Back To The New Spot - Central Vic Gold Prospecting
 
11:27
I returned to the spot I found in my last video in central victoria for a bit more prospecting, and also camped the night. It showed potential last time, and this time I proved that potential (imo) including finding a nice little nugget. Somehow messed up the captions towards the end of the videos and they're all showing about 6 seconds too early :( But since I didn't want to upload it again I thought you can just manage as is :) Enjoy! _____________________________________________________________ DFG Gear available from Teespring.

Kenya Miners Part 2: Crushing, grinding the ore, and sluicing gold the traditional African way
 
08:07
This is our second video in our five part series of our trip to Kenya to install a shaker table to help eliminate the use of mercury by the smalls scale gold miners. We met with Julius who is the president of the MICA gold mining cooperative and donated a shaker table to MICA to show the miners a different technology for gold concentration other than the use of mercury. Once the shaker table was set up the miners were amazed! The shaker table on average recovered 2-3 times more gold from the same material they had been processing with their blanket/burlap sluices and mercury use. The table can also process the material up to 10 times faster than the blanket/burlap sluices. The result being in some cases 30 times more gold for the miners in the same amount of processing time. Stay tuned for more videos of our trip to Kenya. For more information about our shaker table or any of our other products email us at [email protected] or give us a call at 360-595-4445. http://www.mbmmllc.com
