The World’s 10 Most Prolific Gold Fields

Gold has long been one of mankind’s most prized possessions. Yet most people have little idea where gold comes from, other than from “gold mines.”

Mining gold today often becomes monumental undertakings, truly some of man’s greatest engineering feats. Imagine gold mining shafts nearly two and a half miles below the surface and it taking two hours for miners to get to their work stations. Imagine a pit so large that it can be seen from outer space.

No reason to imagine, those are the realities in the mining of gold revealed in “The World’s 10 Most Prolific Gold Fields.”

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.
