North Queensland Gold

In 2014 I had the great privilege of traveling to Forsayth, Nth Qld, with my mates for a 10 day detecting trip.

Forsayth is approximately 1900kms north from Brisbane- in the start of the beautiful gulf country, located near Georgetown- a historically rich gold mining area.

In recent years, a number of cattle stations have opened ...

The hobby has been so good to use that we decided to provide a lost jewellery recovery service to people who have lost their much treasured jewellery items. Some years ago - the Miners Den - located at Mitcham asked us if we were in interested in providing such a service as...

A Short Trip to Nth Qld

One of our regular customers was kind enough to show us the spoils of his recent short trip to North Queensland.

After several gold less days trudging through the hills in the hot, humid conditions, he was lucky enough to stumble on to a very nice patch. It was only a small patch but had some great weight. There were quite a f...

Apr 27, 2017 9:46:11 AM By Miners Den Brisbane Minelab GPX Metal Detector Finds, Minelab Gold Detector Finds,

Minelab’s SDC 2300 metal detector is one of our biggest selling gold prospecting detectors.

It handles the mineralized ground in the goldfields fantastically (greatly reducing ground noise) – it does not penetrate into the ground as far on large gold nuggets as the GPX series, or the GPZ7000 - but is brilliant on small gold nuggets – and very few ad...

We find most customers prefer to use small coils on their GPX detectors. This stands to reason, as small coils are more sensitive to smaller nuggets – and there are far more smaller nuggets around than larger ones!! However, if a larger coil is used – in particular the flat wound mono coils produced by Nugget Finder and Coiltek – greater depth is a...

Do you scrub your coil on the ground when detecting for gold ??

Often we get complaints from customers saying that their skid plates wear out too quick – as we have always been told to keep the coil as close to the ground as possible – to get maximum depth.

Speaking to a manufacturer of coils about this issue, their response was that they actually do...
