Hi

Sounds great it would be the dream to buy a block of land and find gold on it. Well you should get plenty of good advice through the forums.

Welcome Dunollman ,

Just some advice , the most gold still to be found is in the dry areas because water was always a problem .
Hope you do well .   smile
