I am from Wellington and have recently become fascinated with the gold history of New Zealand. I am interested in spending a week in Jan or Feb with my family fossicking for gold on the west coast.
I plan on spending time on a few of the public claims but am at the same time concerned that with my lack of experience it might make it difficult to ensure a successful first trip.
You all seem to be a very friendly bunch and I am wondering if anyone with a claim (the further north the better) would be willing to allow us to spend some time on it? I, of course, would be willing to pay you for the experience and we would be limited to the same equipment we can use on the public claims.
Please do let me know if you or someone you know might know of might be willing to help?
Thanks in advance.
