Update Announcement Prospecting Trip Australia

Update, November 15th, 2011


Visa issues causing delay. New date for departure set for January 2012.

We have to face a 6 weeks delay because of the time consuming process to get all the paperwork done. Thai visa administration is very demanding.

This means we will not arrive in Perth before January next year.

The positive side of this inconvenient delay is the extra amount of time we can spend on preparation and equipment, optimising the web pages and giving them a final look.

Tomp Tower, An Impression.

I visited this tower in the summer of 2011.

Tomp Tower lies in a wet forest near the village of Achel, north east of the town of Neerpelt, in the province of Limburg in the Flemish region in Belgium.


We are proud to announce our newly developed headphone/speaker booster RJ-1 for use with a wide range of metal detectors. Its compact and lightweight design makes it a winner. In quiet remote areas where a headphone is not crucial you will experience the benefit of a speaker system with superior detection rate. No objects will be missed with this remarkable and sensitive built-in amplifier.

Our field tests prove that even the smallest objects can be detected without the need for a headphone.

A series of books that gives in detail, information on the old gold mining areas together with valuable historical information, photographs and maps – these are most essential for the serious prospector! The information shown here is for your reference only.

Unfortunately, these books are now longer in print and will not be reprinted as the author withdrew them from sale in July 2002.
