Hi to all!

Post  keeef on Thu Mar 12, 2015 2:23 pm

Hi everybody, I am a 56 year old emergency nurse living in Byford WA. I am not new to detecting having owned detectors since about 1990 but my focus has always been on coins and relics, including a fair bit of underwater detecting. I have tried my hand at gold a couple of times with poor success, but had fun anyway.

I am now changing my focus to gold, which is why I have joined the forum. I have got a minelab F1A4 all modded up with coils, covers etc etc etc. But I have noticed that the days of going for a drive and swinging the detector are well and truly gone in WA. Now that I have set the gear up I am TRYING to wade through the piles of data required to safely detect with permission. I have read a lot on this forum and its members seem more willing than most to share information, for this all us newbies thank you!!!

In the short term I can only get away for 4 or 5 days at a time and would really appreciate any advice on close areas I can practice with the new detector, if anyone else is in the same boat pm me and maybe we can organise a short trip.

Cheers all, look forward to being a member!!

Hi Keith 
And welcome aboard

Yes... a few of us do go over your way, up in the gold fields 
Like you have mentioned.. Trying to get onto the right ground with permission, is the tricky part.

We joined APLA, and go to their meetings when we can when over there.
If you join APLA, they have days where members meet up, for outings, also meet other like minded folk 

http://www.apla.com.au/default.aspx

Here's a couple of W.A forums to look through. You have to be a member to see everything.

http://s4.zetaboards.com/Gold_Detecting/index/

http://www.detectingwestaustraliangold.com/

You can approach mining company's and they sometimes give you areas you can detect on.

Then there is tengraph  the W.A mapping system
Http:/www.dmp.wa.gov.au/3980.aspx

Hope this info is helpful, if not ask away there are other members here that may know more then me.
Pretty sure there are.


Also hope to hear of your adventures, whether it's coins, relics or gold hunting.. 
I would love to hear about it all 
I am sure all the members would.
