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 🙂

Welcome aboard the forum, and there are plenty of people from NZ here, we don't discriminate. When you get a chance to get back out there please share some stories and pictures of your hunt and finds.

Good luck and stay safe.

Welcome, D4G,

  North or South Island?  Look on the forum for Phrunt (Simon), he is there with you, among some others! He also gold hunts, and finds many silver coins in virgin detecting grounds! He's a great source of information for multiple detectors he uses there!

   Sorry for the lockdown, but beyond that, you all are blessed in many ways over there! We are very jealous, but happy for you being in such an extraordinary beautiful country! 

  Stay safe, and find Simon, and us here, for any questions you may have! 👍👍

      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 my name is Deven - new member here from Red Deer, Alberta. I'm into Prospecting/Relic Searching. Usually just when we are out camping, but I have made a couple trips to northern Ontario for some hard rock mining. I am into welding/fabrication etc. I built my own jaw crusher and rod mill. Currently in material collection stage of my wave table. I frequented a couple other forums over the past years. Looking to learn, and share whatever I can that will help the community.
