Interesting map,never knew it was as big as that till you have all the other European countries combined inside the Aussie footprint......just shows us how lucky the UK being so small but steeped in history we are.

That for posting that image.

To add to your map, this is why people mostly live on the edges 🙂

So unless you want to live in the arid zone the majority of the habitation is in quite a small area compared to the land size.  This next map shows the areas of the world that are most comparable to the sections on the map

All pretty cool maps, Looks like the Victorian gold fields are in the easiest location for a detectorist to live where they hunt.

Seeing the size of the country though it really makes you think there has just got to be some more giant nuggets hiding within the range of a detector, there is no way possible it's detected out 🙂

My wife and daughter are off to Brisbane, Australia today.  They're having 36c temperatures, 96.8f for the next few days.  They're going to get a shock when they're complaining 22c (71.6f) is too hot here.  I never like to go there this time of year, too hot for me so am sitting this trip out.

That map of Europe looks a bit 'distorted' to me. I'm sure the UK isn't that big. Not to mention all of Scandinavia and the Baltic States are missing - Norway, Sweden, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania to name a few.

Found this map on another site

It was in relation to Vistors to Australia not being aware of our large distance here.

Can you fit New Zealand in there? Plenty of room left in those WA goldfield areas. Might even fit in the gap on the eastern seaboard. 😂

Should be interesting. You better be on your game. Our boys are on fire. 😂 Sorry....I shouldn't mention Fire. A colleague of Mrs JW's in the wedding filming business was doing a helicopter wedding shoot up into the mountains this week & sent Mr's JW a photo of a glacier & mountain top covered in orange/red ash fallout from your bushfires. :ohmy: Unbelievable. I guess seeing is believing. I will try to see if I can get access to the photo, but I may not be able to use it. Copyright & all that.

To follow up on what JW said about the snow here covered in red ash fallout from the Australian bush fires the local national news paper did a story on it.

      I've had this coil for quite some time, but it was packed away and forgotten. It was purchased for A$60 because I was intrigued.
      It is the anti-interference version. Measures 12 x 4 and uses the MInelab lower rod.
      Weight is decent, build quality is good. Performance in the field still remains a mystery as I've yet to use it. I gave it a quick air test just to see how it behaved on the Tdi Pro.
      This version has a hot spot in the centre of the coil which appears very sensitive to small targets at shallow depth. Seems to hit fairly well at shallow depths but doesn't have much punch for the deeper targets. Test garden results on coins would give real world depth on coins between a solid hit around 15cm or 6 inches and fading fast past 20cm or 8 inches. 
      Useless air test with ground balance off, gain at max, in ALL, frequency in the middle, pulse delay at 10.
      1 grain was               7cm
      .5 gram gold coin  16cm
      1/2 Sovereign         23cm
      Us Quarter              23cm
      Aussie Penny         25cm
      Whites Buckle        33cm
      So in summary it hits hard on small and shallow targets, the centre of the coil is a hot spot for sure.. Fades fast as depth increases, the big Whites buckle just managed 13 inches.
      Since I managed max gain on the Tdi Pro in an EMI hot zone, the Anti-interference feature seems to work ok.. One of the things I like about the Tdi machines is the ability to plug in all sorts of coils, never know if you don't have a go..  My Tdi SL is highly resistance to EMI and the Pro less so but still very good. This coil could make more sense mounted on a Minelab around electric fences and mobile phone towers.. etc.
      All the best,
      Karelian

      The land is very large and remote, limited road access lack of power and food. Armed forces involve in assisting many thousands of trapped holiday makers and residence with relief.

      Adam,
      The next time you go prospecting or fishing just stay at home.
