In the first chapter, the author outlines essential background information on metal detecting and prospecting, covering key areas in detector selection, coil types, basic and advanced detecting techniques, where to prospect and legal requirements.
Everything a visitor should know to get them sufficiently prepared for a prospecting trip into the outback of Western Australia.
The second part of the book gives a short history of the goldfields, describing the unbelievable hardship the old-timers endured in their quest for gold. The third part is where the author reveals some of the best alluvial localities found on the Murchison and East Murchison goldfields, with easy-to-follow mud-maps showing the way.
In total there are twenty-five localities within the Day Dawn, Cue and Meekatharra districts of the Murchison Goldfield, as well as the Wiluna District of the East Murchison Goldfield.
The final chapter shows readers how to accurately determine the gold content in nuggets and specimens using simple specific gravity measurements – something which has baffled even the most experienced prospectors.
