pick a park ,any park, don't dig playing fields , make the smallest possible hole/plug
get a pinpointer (makes for accurate plugs)
only use a hand trowel or digging tool such as a Tyger heart
leave the ground as best you can to as close to how you found it , always refill/replug your hole
happy hunting

[Howdy , I was planing to give a park up my street a swing here in the northern subs of Melbourne, can a goldmonster be used for tresure detecting or am I waisting my time . Also is it ok to do so , I'm not to good with finding info on the forum yet . I have my miners rights, I've had for a couple years as I like my panning but now have this detector I'm keen to learn while I can't get away up in the gold fields. ?

you will dig way to much ground up with the monster roll cry ops not good in park environments awful thumbsdown

better off with a machine that will give you a tid and a tone cool power power and learn what it tells you rainbow

you will still dig crap cry but not to the same scale as you would with no discrimination pickshovel

dont forget smallest possible plug power refilled when you finished cool an take ya crap with you poop

help to keep the parks open by doing the right thing sunny

happy park hunting James

i have a gm 1000 and i will agree totally with ctxkid on what he says
i have now got a go-find 40 and find i dig very few holes now as the monster will pick up everything (or maybe i just need to learn how to use it lol)

Hi Dave.

Did you have any luck in your search around the Hawkesbury?

Im from Richmond and have just got an equinox 600 so am hoping to start doing some searching around the area.

Love to hear what you have found and maybe we will cross paths one day

Regards

Jamie

Windsor is an OLD area. Should be plenty of great sites. Have a look on TROVE. It has old maps, newspapers etc all digitized. You can research as to what events etc happened in your area. Any park, oval, showground etc will have a long history. People sent much more time outdoors than we "modern people" do.
