How to Find Gold Locations in Victoria

359 ratings | 29274 views
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.

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? Tony
Aussie Bloke Prospector (2 months ago)
The name's not Alan either... Lol
Tony Day (3 months ago)
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. Tony
Aussie Bloke Prospector (3 months ago)
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
Tony Day (3 months ago)
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. Tony

been trying to find this map on the site any help to how to find it please
peter krych (6 months ago)
ok thank you
Aussie Bloke Prospector (6 months ago)
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
peter krych (6 months ago)
where you can and can not prospect in north east vic , yacandandera and beach worth , eldorardo area or vic in general some one sead there is exclusion zones around yackandandera

Andrew Mcilroy (8 months ago)
Excellent. Only if i can ask a fairly novice question. What is the difference between a shallow lead and shallow workings? Thanks
Aussie Bloke Prospector (8 months ago)
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
Andrew Mcilroy (8 months ago)
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?
Aussie Bloke Prospector (8 months ago)
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

You are most welcome and cheers. Regards Aussie
I'm doing something wrong in paint I'm following what you do but when I click paste no picture is there any help
You should have a key on your keyboard that says "prt sc" and one that says " fn".... Most laptops and pc keyboards do..Press both simultaneously and it will put your screen image on the clipboard.

Great video . Is there a filter that shows State Parks and State Forrest ?
OzSkySearch (1 year ago)
Good one , that helps . Thanks .
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

Awesome very informative, NZ has a Crown minerals site but you need to but a prospector licence before you can do a thing. In short take the Gamble. or prospect illegally
Just get a license mate... not work getting caught. Good Luck. Regards Aussie
bradley evans (1 year ago)
can you give me an idea on where to go cos me dad and i have been out about 15 times and find nothing
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
Very helpful and very handy. Great ideas and will make my trip easier. Cheers
Really glad you find it helpful. Regards Aussie

Earl Lee Lethbridge (1 year ago)
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.
Earl Lee Lethbridge (1 year ago)
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

Cheers mate, you are welcome. 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.
I think you might have the wrong person mate..I'm not Dan. However, if you jump on Gumtree, there are occasionally mines under 10K advertised. Good Luck, regards Aussie

Great video, just a quick question when you look at the crown land shaded in grey and it has a number on it for eg P105888 what does the number stand for?
To be honest, not quite sure..haven't looked that deep into it. Could be a Prospecting lease number, but most likely a State Forest compartment number. Regards Aussie
Andrew Jackson (1 year ago)
great video as always, will you be doing a video on SA
Thanks mate..RE SA, wasn't going to, but I'll think about it. Regards Aussie
