3.7 Gold Specimen

3.7 Gold Specimen found by Cory from BrisbaneGold

Our Newest Miners Den Australia Team Member Cory from the BrisbaneGold store struck it lucky 2 weeks ago when out on a gold prospecting trip in Queensland near Brisbane.

Using a Minelab GPX 4500 metal detecting with a 14” x 9” Nugget Finder Coil he heard a signal, dug down approximately 16 inches and found a beautiful gold specimen.

The specimen weighs about 3.7 grams containing about 3 grams of gold.
Not a bad weekend’s work.

Stay tuned as we are sure Cory will have more great gold finds that he will share with us all.

About Cory

There seems to be gold in my blood- My great grandfather was from Ballarat and had several gold claims (not overly successful from my research). My grandfather, father and uncle all were prospectors in NZ- where my uncle still prospects regularly. I remember when I was about 5 my father would regularly go fossicking around drake and Taloom. When I was older we would go gold panning around Kilkivan frequently and thus began my interest in gold. About 2 years ago, after settling down with a house and family, I felt the call of gold again and began seriously learning all I could. I began panning in Warwick regularly but my interest soon turned to detecting. I started with a cheap machine and very soon realised I was wasting my time. I was lucky enough to have been given a Minelab GP 3000 back in February this year and found 12 grams of the good stuff on my first outing! I haven't looked back since. I now have a Minelab GPX 4500 and am finding good gold in the Warwick area very regularly- which is no easy feat! Since joining the Miners Den Australia team an interest in coins and relics has been sparked. In my spare time, I always seem to be swinging a detector, and my daughter (5) is now asking for one of her own!
