Hi Folks

Just a quick hello to everyone on the forum. It’s good to be a part of your community. I’m another bloke from downunder that struggles with gold fever. I live on the south coast of New South Wales and try to get out for a play in the bush at least a couple of times every week. My toys include a 7, 6 and 2300. Hope to be able to learn from some of you wizards and contribute where ever I can. 
cheers

Les

Welcome aboard Lesgold !

Are you sure you wouldn't prefer to be Morgold ???? 🙃I couldn't resist ...

Judging by your gear lineup , you might be a wizard too !

Thanks rvpopeye. 
Lately I should be calling myself goldles. That’s the challenge of the hobby. Not a wizard, just someone who enjoys being out there.

Welcome Lesgold, with that artillery in your possession and a few good spots the future should be shiny. You have a lot of "mates" here who appear to be heavy hitters. This site focusses on on the details, it has made me much better than I should be. 😀

If you have any questions , don't be shy . ( if nobody has the answer already we'll all figure it out as a group) 

If you have anything to add , don't be shy .

If you have any tales of your finds , well you get the picture ! 

AND if you have any pictures of those finds especially those that you just can't ID .........yup yup post it up !

      I just wanted to give a quick thank you to all of you who've welcomed me back this time after my departure a few years back.... it's been great to be back and I'm so happy to see how warm and accepting you've all been, granted half the members may have me on "user ignore" so don't even know I'm back.. LOL.. but thank you again and Steve, thank you for keeping such a tight ship and for welcoming me back so graciously and defending me from those who weren't keen. PS: I'm doing my best to stay non political and on topic, my dog's had to thwap me in the back of the head a couple times but I'm learning.... LOL
      You're all a great family, dysfunctional family at times yes (it's why I luv you all), but family it is. 🙂

      Hi Everyone, 
      I have been reading posts on these forums for quite awhile without posting, while looking for info on gold prospecting and metal detecting in general. This website has been a great resource even for a experienced prospector and detectorist like myself. I am looking forward future exchanges with all of the very interesting folks that contribute here.
      Best,
      Michael

      Hi everyone,
      Avid reader from France of this forum, which I consider to be the "best" in the world. I am happy to be part of this community.
      Passionate since childhood by detection, I mainly detect in fields and woods family (I am the son of farmer) I had the chance to try and have a lot of detectors.
      My favorite is the Sovereign which I find unbeatable in discrimination between aluminum and gold.
      Sorry if my English is approximate .
      Thanks.

      Hi There everyone. 
      May have been a member many years ago but fade in and out of metal detecting but recently back at it.
      Looks like this site is chock full of informative folks and sure I'll have some questions.
      Have one question right off the bat regarding whether or not there's a printing tool for being able to print a particular thread I'm very interested in.
      If so I'm not seeing it.
      Or a way to save a particular thread?
      Thanks!!

      I've been prospecting with my shovel and high banker for many years, though I grew tired of hauling all that heavy gear around.  Always wanted a metal detector and now I have one.  Gerry has helped to outfit me with one of those GPZ 7000 rigs.
      I now live in Bozeman Montana, surrounded by some amazing geology, history and beautiful mountains.
      My objective is to get out and into the mountains, away from the crowds.  Currently researching the local mountains as I have found lots of quartz just off to the side of the trails, now I can go back and see of there is anything hidden within the dirt.
      I look forward to the adventures!

      Hi guys. New to this site but not new to chasing gold. Mostly detect for it these days. Name is Greg & I am in New Zealand. We have in the last couple of days gone into lockdown due to our first covid case in the community since february of this year. Has apparently come from across the ditch from the New South Wales outbreak in Australia. BUGGER. So locked down at home & cant go out for a detect. Beautiful day too.
      Look forward to "meeting" & hanging out with you all & see what you guys are finding & what gear you are using & what your thoughts are:) on it. Take care stay safe.
      Greg 🙂
