Who has seen the videos of "Legend of Croc Gold" done in Bougainville Papua New Guinea and how did you get to see it (what links have you got to see it) I spent time there from Feb 1973 to Sep 1979 when I was young and fearless what a great and rewarding time it was for my family and self.

I was not fluent in it, language not being my strong point. There were many funny uses of Pidgin such as lik lik haus sik for hospital, die = sick and die pinish  for dead.

I was on the main island in mid 2000's----

Working with New Tribes Missions-- quite an eye opener-- the country, the people, the landscape, the language...... dispela day..... dispel day...   This is THE day!

I would go to Bouganville .... maybe i could hire a boater to drop me off over in West OZ.... i could wash ashore like a refugee-- surely you all dont still send people to Manis Island ,,,,do you???

And then of course you also have Croc Diamonds......

As every self-respecting local in N.E. Angola knows all this stuff about diamonds forming at huge depths and temperatures is just BS and diamonds are really made in the heads of crocodiles. It stands to reason after all.. diamonds are found in rivers and crocs live in rivers. Croc dies, decomposes and his diamonds stay in the river. Nevertheless it came as a big surprise one day back in the '80's when the diamond security police carried a large sack into the plant office and dumped a very decomposed croc on the floor and asked the manager to get the stones out of its head. The manager was a fairly volatile Sicilian so you can guess his response.

      Got permission for a construction site to dig bottles over Memorial Day weekend. The bottles were dating from 1860 to 1900 most of them 1880's. We dug over 60 bottles, I came home with at least 2 dozen decent ones. Had a great time with my Brother-in-law and a few friends. picked up a few wheat pennies in the waste piles and my Brother-in-law was lucky enough to find a valuable token. Sorry don't have a picture of it. Video below if you want to watch it. Sorry the audio kind of muffled in spots.

      Hello friends,
      I made a two-part video about how we use Gold Detectors in European creeks. I first was scared of sharing it here, cause we really are no experts on metal detectors and you Pros here will sure find some things, I messed up. But maybe it's entertaining for you, to listen to a detector-non-Pro 😃.
      Please cut me some slack. I tried to focus on the things, I do have some experience with and that's how we use the detectors in our creeks... Enjoy
