The easy gold is gone, now is the time to put yourself ahead of the pack and think like a Geologist!

Gold is getting harder to find

Ground has been well picked over and as prospectors we have to work smarter to obtain results. The art of finding gold is not to follow what others have done, but what they haven’t. Reading the ground and the environment is a science, the better you do this, the better your chances of finding that elusive metal. Geology is a science that provides you with a number of tools that enables you to read between the lines. Most people don’t possess these tools and they’re the skills that increase your chances of finding gold. 

"The smarter you can be, the better your success"

Understand how to read the ground, what you should look for in worked goldfields and skills to push you out further, to search ‘new ground’ and maybe discover that untouched patch of gold. Learn the secrets to successful gold prospecting with Andrew Bales on his RawGold Geology Tutorial and Gold Prospecting Field Course.
