My old Willys Jeep Model CJ-3B and how I restored it. A story.

Posted by Admin - Tuesday, November 20th, 2012.

5 years ago I made a decision that would change my life. Attracted to foreign culture, I made up my mind and travelled to the East. I first stranded in the Philippines where I lived for 2 years. After a turbulent period in my life I moved on and finally settled in Thailand. Here I got married again and that's were I decided to stay. 

I needed a suitable vehicle for my trips given the poor condition of the roads.  It had to be a sturdy and reliable truck. I was lucky to spot an old army jeep that was in a real bad shape but the price was ok so I took it.

The so-called jumbo nugget has been estimated as weighing anything between seven kilograms and 60kg, and was reportedly discovered near Cashmans Prospect east of Ora Banda.

Ancient statue discovered by Nazis is made from meteorite.

BBC News, September 27, 2012.

The artifact is believed to be made from a meteorite that crashed into the Earth 15,000 years ago.

An ancient statue that was recovered by a Nazi expedition in the 1930s was originally carved from a highly valuable meteorite.

Researchers say the 1,000-year-old object with a swastika on its stomach is made from a rare form of iron with a high content of nickel.

The Webshop has launched !

A warm welcome to all our visitors!

Statistics show that the amount of visitors has increased rapidly over the last months. This success confirms the website’s popularity among metal detector users and the casual visitor who is looking for information.

A year ago a webshop was on my wish list and today I am pleased to announce the introduction of my webshop. It’s a welcome feature for the metal detector users and the prospector. From now on eBay sales are no longer active. All these items have been transferred to the new webshop.   



We have received a request to return to Thailand and visit these new gold areas. This means that our prospecting trip in Australia will come to an end by the end of this month. A summary of our report of the Golden Quest Discovery Trail will follow as also the planned CD containing all the details of our trip and more. We are anxious to discover new breaking ground and find gold in Thailand.

At this moment we know about 9 new locations where gold is available. Here you can read more about it here (original Thai article). For English: see below.

Ice Cold Gold - Season 2. Watch the new episodes here!

Article published on March 31, 2014. Written & compiled by admin. An Animal Planet production.

The first season of ICE COLD GOLD was but a glimpse of Greenland's power and potential. This season, the threats and rewards are multiplied.  Nothing about Greenland is implied; a new world is about to be defined. In the ruby-packed second season of ICE COLD GOLD, our spirited team of American miners returns to the most remote mining location on the planet with its eyes on a prize. With possibly the world's largest ruby in the Arctic glinting within reach, Sixty Degree Resources stretches the logistical challenge of returning to its deposit to life-threatening, thin extremes.
