Looks like a fair chunk of my internet explorer favourites list you have there!

It's what we do when we're wishing we were prospecting.

I used the Trove website today, took a side step from my own personal family research and found a wealth of fantastic information. For example, type in an old country town that you are most interested in fossicking and type in Gold after it - what comes up next depends on the location.

I came up with old maps and newspaper articles, which gave me loads of current and old gold mining sites within my chosen area. This site is fantastic, make sure to have notepad and pen in hand :-)

Particularly the mine atlas, found so many spots that explain what I found near the dam.

This gov info really has the most value I think.

Great work everyone and thanks!

I think that there is a lot of excellent lincs scattered thru this webb site that need to be organised so that there are no double entrys and all the lincs to usefull information is set out in a virtual library that could be built on by the members input.. imagine all of that info being found in one place for everyone to go to... maybe  the guys could put up suggestions for entrys if the linc has not be entered already to very helpful info.. and no talking it is a library...  only readable info.. smile

That's a good idea.

I'm basically doing the same thing on a smaller scale. I fine lots of great info on websites...when I do...I copy it to a word doc. I got to 200 pages of info and then saved it as a PDF.

The problem is a lot of info is a company trying to sell you stuff. "this is the best #!#$%* and if you want to find gold you need to buy this...bla,bla"

I like how they try and sell you..."IF your SERIOUS about finding gold..." Like who isn't?

But it's a time investment to make that kind of site and I hate to say it...unless your selling something how do you make money? This is the best place though and a great resource.

I don't think Nugget is going to retire on this site though...I hope I'm wrong. However, the  only people to really make are the people who sell the picks and shovels. 8-)

I every one, Can I take a map from a book scan or what ever and over lay over Google maps. The maps i have got have track and road names on them but when I go to Where Is or Google maps they only have some names on them. Not good enough to rely on don't want to get caught on the wrong side of the fence
PS I am not real smart with computers

Not sure about google MAPS, but if have or wish to download google EARTH then yes, and its pretty easy.

Just duplicate the step in the following link (which are for doing a similar thing but going one step further and putting the overlayed map into a gps device - so you can drop the last 'Step 5'). After you load the link below go to the middle tab on that page ('Instructions') and there are pics of the wizard steps to follow - couldn't be easier!

1-Make your scan to overlay, saving it as a JPEG file type.
2-In Google Earth add an 'Image Overlay'.
3-Link the JPEG onto the overlay.
4-Georeference the JPEG (ie stretch the JPEG to fit the 'map/pic' below. (In the background the overlay will be given longitude/latitude to match the map ("georeferenceing"). But this probabaly won't matter to you - pending where you go from here.

Thanks jon_m ,  I don't want to put to GPS just need paper copy its all over my head.The early gold maps I have been looking at show large amounts of public land, but the new maps don't show as much and I have read some were cut in size. So I need a mate to help me out or go for a drive and have a look.
Thanks for the help

hi,

My first go at finding owner of a property to contact for access to prospect.

Using your links I have the following:
Google maps address road address, road name, postcode, etc
NSW Lot and DP
Lat & Long

Not sure how I can now find the owners contact details, name phone number.

Any help would be appreciated.

Phantom
