“This book is the complete guide to metal detecting in Australia, the one you have been waiting for. It tells you exactly how to rune seven of the top brands of metal detectors in Australian conditions. It teaches you the detecting techniques necessary for finding gold, coins and relics on our goldfields. It shows you exactly where to go and what to do with your finds.
The forty maps have detailed currently accurate information showing vehicle access, gold diggings, reefs, deep leads, nugget finds and ruins. The maps are the result of hundred of hours of detecting in each locality. Many have never before been published.
The detailed historical information on the nugget-producing areas will assist you to identify the coins and relics that remain there.”
