Karratha Gold by Paul von Zorich

Finding gold with a metal detector has never been easy. As more and more people try their hand at gold prospecting, finding suitable alluvial ground has become increasingly more difficult. Many hobbyists, after discovering just how difficult it really is to find gold, give up in frustration even before learning how to properly use their machines. Karratha Gold is Paul von Zorich’s next book in the series, written for the serious detectorist determined on finding gold during their next visit to the West Pilbara region of Western Australia.

Being shown the best places to detect is by no means a guarantee of success. Understanding your detector is essential if you want to find gold on a regular basis. Many of the best-known places have been walked over and detected many times, but some of the biggest recent gold finds have come from these areas, and nuggets continue to be found. Nevertheless, detecting around Karratha–Roebourne region does have its problems. Some of the places are on the very edge of tidal mudflats where the salty ground can play havoc with a detector, deterring even the most hardened prospectors. In Karratha Gold you will be shown new techniques and strategies to overcome these problems, and thus be better prepared to deal with the difficult and often rewarding task of detecting the salt flats and salt marshes around the Karratha area.

Whether you are an experienced prospector or a newcomer to the hobby, this concise, up-to-date locality guide will prove an invaluable source of information.
