They have just started advertising this on Sky TV, looks set to launch shortly (I will update this post when I get a time and date)
Join the hard-core gold prospectors of Outback Australia as they battle to strike it rich in gruelling conditions, extreme weather, and competitive pressure during the Gold Season. Follow the highs and lows of three gold crews over 8 episodes to see who will come out on top with the biggest finds.
Who else has been watching this? I for one have been really enjoying it, a welcome change from the scripted feel of the big American shows, and you better believe there have been some whopper nuggets unearthed.
I remember that one. I wonder how much junk they’ve been pulling out that just went to the cutting room floor? Suprising how much junk is out in these old timer spots. I remember on a detecting mission a while back in WA dealing with lots of pieces of wire from old timers rusted sieves.
I think they’re on the last but one episode now for people watching via alternative means.
I would say GOLD to spacejunk targets would very some what.
Ive heard conflicting stories like one in seventy targets are good and others where the ground is quiet so dig everything.
Couldnt speak from experience meself but id dig a trip to the outback.
Note on the show that the heat/sun was overwellming and a force to be reckoned with. That i can vouch for - been there.
On the opposite end of the spectrum I was like “oh, it can’t get that cold at night” and packed a very poor choice of sleeping bag. Was I in for a surprise - layering up in as many clothes as I could before hitting the sack. Beautiful during the day in winter - perfect, but frickin freezing at night!
Oh for sure- lived there for many years.
Hard to place yeself in that heat (40-45-50c) when its a bit fresh here.
Fairly sure they mentioned that they shouldnt of been there this time of year. I thought that hunting season was winter.
Dig that bit when when Kell’s detecting buddy offered to retreive her GOLD piece from the hole she dug. The look on her face like “touch it and you may die”.
Been watching it on sky ch.70 thurs 7.30pm. First episode just been on. Watched it three times now.
