Yesterday I decided to go for a quick walk with the ol mine lab 1600 ( ancient but works well) and my pick. I have heard stories of coins worth up to $1200 each from local surrounds so I thought I'd go give it another shot. I dug lots of holes and picked up heaps of rubbish haha, found some old relics, no value to it though. I'm sure I'll be making a bit more time for prospecting, looking for anything bushranger related at the moment.

My best finds are a couple of gold nuggets and some jewellery.

Anyone else like to get out and see what's under the ground?? What are your best finds??

The best I have seen in person was a 32oz nugget found by my uncle.

Interesting Topic; Since a child I have always had a keen eye to find 'sparkly' things, I was always finding money at school, etc.

After the Fireworks I would keep my eyes out for Sunglasses that are left behind :)

 

And usally, when I am snorkeling I always keep an eye out under Jetties.

I am always find hooks and tackle, usaully I am looking for expensive lures.

 

Recent Finds:

Wedge Island (Esperance): 9k Gold Earing - Prob worth about $20 - I plan to melt it down into a little nugget to hang off my chain.

Little Jetty near Stirling Bridge (Mt Pleaseant):  2x Specticles/Glasses, 5x Knives

Rottenest: Yellow Dive Torch

 

Recently, I missed out going to Kalgoorlie with some Archery buddies, who went prosepecting for a week (with a little goat hunting on the side).

 

I have always loved finding things but never purposely gone out looking.

Nice one mrleifbeaver, some good finds. Now imagine what you could do with a detector.

When I was young and living in the pilbara, people would empty their vacuums over the fence... One day I found a nice shiny 9ct gold necklace that someone chucked over with their vacuum crap.

Mmm, yes detectors are fun, we have two at Archery to find arrows that 'barrel' under the ground. We search for their 'tips'. Apparently Kalgoorlie has been picked clean for detector prospecting but I think the allure that you 'could' find something would definetly get me there to have a look.

I found a $2 coin at a local park on Sunday while going for a walk. Went to IGA and purchased a packet of biscuits with the find. Was pretty stoked

Still a bit out kalgoorlie way, I'm not going out there. When I'm looking I sometimes go out past mt magnet, found my first nuggets in cue.

Just walking around local at the moment, plenty of history in these hills!!
Now that is winning Jason82
