Best Hunt Of My Life

This year over Easter Break, my family and I decided to head south and get away from all the winter drama we’ve had here at home. We were just finishing up getting about 10 inches of snow when we left home. It has been a long winter, and I was eager to get my Minelab E-TRAC out and start finding some loot. After about a 10 hour ride in the car, we arrived at our destination.

A Great Find for a Great Weekend

After attending the Goanna Gold prospecting muster held at the Burrendong Dam, I made some new friends to go metal detecting with.

Talked into an Upgrade!

I was perfectly happy and content to be swinging around the bush with my GPX-4500. I am a part timer, but with a lot of years under my belt. I had picked up over 3 ounces with the GPX-4500 and things were just peachy.
