In Australia and the USA, people park on the gold. Then they walk away; over hill and dale...

You will have plenty of trash in the Golden Triangle...dig it all.

If you go to Hillend or Sofala, beware of the many deep shafts that are very hard to see as you walk...

Mitchel, why would you take the 2300 when you have the 7000- You aren't going to Oz for the little bits.

Stepping into this thread late, so don`t know if what I say has already been said.

Take two machines, if one go es on the fritz you have a back up. If you get on a patch use the 2300 to pick up the small easy gold quickly, all gold is good, don`t waste  your time  looking for  the  Welcome Stranger. Then go back over patch with the 7000 to get the deeper stuff, learn to grid, (drag a chain) it will pay benefits and you will leave less gold.  In Vic the lead shot will drive you crazy, in WA more trash free areas.

Hi Mitchel,

Mate its to easy here in Australia you can be in the heart of the golden triangle from the centre of Melbourne Victoria in 4 to 5 hours.

Hire a camper from here, there are plenty of places trust me, grab a few maps and head out there and start swinging.

Just make sure you read your maps and don't go onto private land.

I would be more than happy to lead you in the right direction once you where here.

And the small townships are very welcoming and there always happy to give a LITTLE advice lol

Don't come in our summer to bloody hot.

Rod

I'm about a month out so a LITTLE advice sound like a go.  I've got an SUV at the airport, some training lined up and just anxious about not wasting my time.

And that is why you do not need to hike for miles...Thanks for both videos, Mitchel.

Australians are very proud of their heritage but don't let them make you a full time tourist...you want to be swinging that coil not being a looky-loo ..

The old saying "when in Rome do what the Romans do" applies to Oz and I suspect everywhere in the world, so just find gold MN don`t frig about.

      This little thing actually kills it!
      My cousin and I have been using the pulse dive in salt water exclusively and although it has a small coil, the ability to swing this thing like mad hugely make up for that fact!
      So far I’ve found the design/ quality of the PulseDive to be very ideal for salt water hunting.  The machine simply beeps and buzzes in your hand, is easily audible  through the water and there is practically no maintenance other than just cleaning the rubber seal/gasket every now and then but there is no knobs, cables, headphones or anything that I can see deteriorating on this detector.
      Depth is definitely surprising when digging targets but still decent in air tests with a nickel/10c Aussie coin hitting at 4” air test and depending on minerals in the sand it’ll hit deeper 5-6” even due to its non-motion nature.
      Anyone who wants to try water detecting I highly recommend trying the PulseDive, the small size and lack of headphones make it ridiculously convenient and even stealthy if you want to be discrete or are a bit shy! 
      This isn’t really a review but just a quick mention of what I think is important to know about the machine 👍
      Here is the gold we’ve found on the last few outings 👊👊👊

      Erlistoun Station has a new phone number 9031 3954. If no one is there to answer please leave a message. The new managers name is Butch Shaw.
      Also as of the coming Tuesday Aug 1st, an aerial muster will be taking place also utilizing ground crews in 4x4's quads, bikes and numerous other mad max look alike vehicles.
      Please, if on the station it is imperative for your safety and ours that we know where you are. These are not tame cows from a petting zoo, they are wild scrub cattle that will kill you.
      Also be aware GSDU are active on this and the surrounding station checking miners rights, permits and compliance. Two men, residents from NSW and Tas faced Leonora court today for illegal mining (on an EL without a section 40E permit)
      Cheers,
      Steve
