Hey Nugget - But isn't the "gold all gone" according to some?  smile  Big areas to detect and pan my friend.

Not too far off topic I hope ... does anyone know where the list/link about historic gold mine locations is now ? (ie. the state-bu-state ZIP files of coords etc)
Cheers

Very nice map !
Currently I'm in Sydney and I just saw on the map that there is a lot of goldfields in NSW, I didn't know that at all when I arrived in Australia !

I thought it was only in Western Australia near Perth.

So do you think that I should stay in NSW if I want to find a lot of gold or should I go in WA?

In all case, what is the differences between these twos area?

Thanks !

Same AGSO site as the map I think - if you want them as GIS files such as MapInfo or some other spatially registered files (eg you can read the coordinates out of geotiff or DBS format)..

Each State Geological Survey has GIS files of mineral prospects and past mines (these are recent mines, mainly the very big ones). A different approach is to use those GIS files, which you can read directly into a GIS programme on a tablet as I do (so you know where you are). Or you can use their on-line mapping programmes to create a map just showing gold prospects, then download the file in many different formats including .TXT (for those who want to read in individual locations only for their GPS). eg Geological Survey of Victoria

Old areas are as good for detecting as new ones.

There is a slightly different approach as well. If you go to the "Geology of Victoria" (last edition only - edited by Birch, published = early 2000's) and go to CH 13 you will find many maps on Victorian gold. These show individual gold reefs for many regions, and you will see that these occur as linear belts. If you then prospect in those belts you can detect areas BETWEEN known gold prospects, confining yourself to areas that are not younger than late Devonian rocks, and not granites (not everything was found by old timers) - but of course including younger gravels etc directly derived from those rocks, as in creeks, and gullies. I do this.

Here is an example (northeastern Victoria) - every single quartz reef known to have produced gold in the past is shown on these maps (auriferous reefs):

1529729320_capture.jpg

Actually this is about the only part of Victoria where you will see reefs in some granites as well (eg around Glen Wills, Dargo, Cassilis and north of Eskdale). However you will see the gap in the western belt around Beechworth - that is because the granite there is later than the gold reefs (at Glen Wills the granite is earlier). Further west in Victoria there is very little gold in granite (eg a bit around Mafeking in the Grampians, and north of Lancefield), and only Mafeking had any significant production from deposits in granites (different in the northeast of the State, eg Glen Wills was important).
