Howdy folks. My partner and I are new to NZ from the USA. I’ve done a bit of detecting for relics and coins back home as well as prospecting for gold, fossils, and gems. We’re settled in the Nelson area at the moment, so if anyone is in the area and willing to show some yankee treasure hunters how things are done in NZ, please feel free to shoot us a message.
We have already had the chance to check out some of the public fossicking areas and found some nice flakes and pickers (see below and sorry about the photo quality, they’ll get better!). This is a great forum and I’ve been lurking for a while. I’m looking forward to meeting some of you folks on down the line.
