I am moving to the west coast, between Greymouth and Westport and would like to take up searching for gold by any means possible, complete newbie, but i am keen and do not mind to invest in a bit of equipment, time i do have.
What can any one to suggest to get started from equipment, clothing tools etc, i will have a 4x4, happy to travel a bit and set up camp for days at a time if need be.
Will have a good base to work from, might even combine a bit of hunting or fishing on the side, so all is not lost so to speak if i can not find that nugget .
Happy to listen to all ideas and suggestions, .
Not wanting to trend on any one toes or steal any ones spot, happy to meet up with like minded people and maybe down the road a small claim, if affordable.
Just need the right advice so i will not make so many mistakes in the beginning…
What is the best metal detector to get as a beginner? Something easy to use and accurate would be good.
Just through in your 2 cents worth i know that there is a hell of a lot to learn and every thing i learn from the old pros would be appreciated .
