Although Far North Queensland was first settled in the 1850s, the discovery of gold in the late 1860s produced an influx of tens of thousands of hopeful diggers, including many thousands of Chinese. The mining boom continued through the last decades of the 19th Century, but was all but over by the First World War. The area is littered with hundreds of mining ghost towns, camps, Cobb & Co exchange stations, and of course gold, copper and silver mines. Join with us as we unearth relics from the 19th Century gold and minerals rush. Colleen and Warren.
During the Second World War, the far north of Australia was the front line for Allied forces combating the Japanese offensive in the Pacific. The area is littered with abandoned Divisional campsites, abandoned airfields, and coastal defence facilities. Please join us as we unearth relics from this critical period in Australia's history. Warren and Colleen.
The North Queensland 'Mineral Belt' extends for over 1,000 kilometres from the East Coast of Cape York, across the Gulf Savannah to Mt Isa near the Northern Territory border. The area is rich in gold, silver, copper, lead, wolfram and uranium. Gemstones of all kinds abound and the areas is a gemhunter's paradise. Join with us as we fossick for gold and gemstones in the beautiful Gulf Savannah country. Colleen and Warren.
During November 2014, we were privileged to travel to the U.S.A. with Garrett Australia, visiting the Garrett factory in Garland, Texas. We then went on to a Civil War Relic Hunt in Tennessee with Steve Moore from Garrett, followed by two days prospecting in the Sierra Nevadas of California. We hope you enjoy this series of videos from the trip. We would like to extend a big thank you to Steve Moore of Garrett U.S.A, and Reece Muru of Garrett Australia, for organising the trip.
