HOW TO FIND GOLD LOCATIONS IN VICTORIA - This video is a tutorial on How to find Gold Locations in Victoria using GEOVIC, provided by the Victorian Government. GEOVIC is an interactive mapping tool that provides a multitude of information in "thematic layers" . It can also be used in conjunction with Google Maps.
I give a Step-by-Step demonstration of accessing and using GEOVIC to find Gold locations in Victoria. I also demonstrate how to make my own "Gold Prospecting Map" using GEOVICs unique detailed "Leads and Workings" overlay. Research is essential to achieving success in the Goldfields, and GEOVIC is an excellent open source research tool for prospectors.

Hi champion is there plenty off gold out there to find great video
I want to try and get my son out there to do something different than play playstation
The new generation worries me mate great video champion
Great video I have just got intrested in prosepcting. Never done a day of it in my life. But I'm learning a lot off your videos. Can't wait to move back to oz and go out and enjoy what your teaching. Is there something like this to find areas in Queensland? I have seen your western Australia videos and now victory. Thanks
Hi Alan, thanks for a very informative video. A couple of steps in the video were a bit quick, hence the following questions.
How did you take a snap shot of the co-ordinates and how did you move from the geovic screen to the paste screen?
Hi Dan, I'm puzzeled as well as to how I got your name wrong. Apologies extended. It was paint that I initially had trouble getting into from geovic, but all is good now.
Great videos, keep up the good work.
G'day Tony, firstly, my name is not Alan... Not quite sure how you came to that conclusion. Secondly, taking a screen shot comes down to basic computing skills... Something I don't cover in detail as this info is readily available on Google or any number of PC forums. Most PCs and Laptops have this function and can be found out reading the manual. Most image programs like "paint" will accept screen shots... Again... Read the help files on them to find out how to import your screen shot. Regards Aussie
Hi Alan, disregard my questions. I was able to print prospecting locations with co-ordinates using geovic web page.
It was just a matter of playing with their software to learn how to download the info. Thanks again for the video.
Follow the Tutorial and Zoom in on NE VIC. Make sure you add the Crown Lands info as shown in the vid. Generally speaking, most State forest in VIC, you are able to prospect in, and in the case of some national parks you are permitted to prospect. Some local councils, like Yack do have exclusion zones. The onus is up to you to check with local State forest and National Parks offices in each region. Also a good place to check the local Information Centre at each town. Regards
You are correct; whilst Maryborough and other areas where famous for rich Deep leads, there are in fact many locations in those areas where there are shallow workings. For every mine or lead shown on GeoVic, there is usually 10 that aren't. Whilst GeoVic is a fantastic tool, it is not exhaustive and only represents notable or major occurrences and workings. A quick walk on the ground in the vicinity of the shallow leads shown, will reveal where the shallow workings were in those areas. Regards Aussie
Awesome. I was just curious because I've been working from some maps by Stephen Barnham and some locations recommended only show up as shallow leads on GeoVic. Actually as I'm writing this i've just popped across to double check what I'm talking about and i've noticed that north of Avoca and Maryborough there is no shallow workings on GeoVic, only shallow leads. I'm guessing thats not right?
Cheers and excellent question. Shallow workings are indicative of alluvial and or shallow reef gold close to the surface, and as such are commonly found in the vicinity of shallow leads, and often follow such leads in a distinctive line. So a lead is a shallow run of alluvial gold, whereas shallow workings are the result of the mining activities engaged in order to work such leads. Hope that helps. Regards Aussie
Cheers. There used to be a filter in Version 2. Forest Explorer Online also used to show all types of Crown Land. Try this link. http://mapshare.maps.vic.gov.au/MapShareVic/index.html?viewer=MapShareVic.PublicSite&locale=en-AU, Regards Aussie
Strange question to ask considering that this video is exactly about that..with the info in this tutorial you should be able to find a hundred good locations in VIC. Follow my instructions, put in the hard yards, persevere and eventually you will find some. Good Luck
just subscribed.like your vids.I want to watch all your vids to learn over the next while.I just started MD about 20 hours but I would like to incorporate gold hunting too.How can I use your info for Southern Alberta.It seems like our provincial government is not releasing acceptable Geo information. I understand if you do not have time to help a newbie...no worries eh I will keep researching.
Thanks Man.The stories are no gold here.North to Saskatchewan River and West into British Columbia called The Caribou. The alberta government Topographical,soil and mineral conveniently hold back the mineral deposits. Thanks again.I will keep digging and study your vids for more clues.
Gold prospecting principles are the same wherever you are in the world mate. keep researching and find a place near you where the Old Timers found gold..that's always the best place to start. You can employ the same alluvial techniques in your part of the world that I use in Australia. Good Luck. Regards Aussie
Hi Dan, contacted you here a few weeks ago, was hoping you would be willing to direct me to just a few claims that are up for sale under 10.k and would have some potential for prospecting. Thanks, keep up the great work.
