Return to Tokotea Hill abandonded gold mines
Back in the Coromandel, and we head back to Tokotea Hills where we found some epic mines last time, but this trip we have been given a tip from our friends at The Urbex Crew NZ about a mine on the other side. We go searching for to see what we can find. The Tokotea Range was the site for many mines from the years around the mid 1800's to the early 1900's. This area is very steep and hard going and now heavily forested, which makes finding mines a challenge. This area is said to have produced about 93,733 ounces of gold and about 41,823 ounces of silver in its day. Ending song - Chael - Sparks Warning: Extreme care to be taken if you enter old tunnels and mines. We are documenting for preservation purposes and for viewing entertainment. Always tell someone where you are going and inform them to return times.

Tatare Gold Mine Tunnel
This tunnel in New Zealand was built over a century ago by gold miners, but due to a lack of gold the project was abandoned. These days you can explore the spooky tunnels by going on a 80 minute return hike from Franz Josef township. Just remember to bring a raincoat, torch/flashlight, and some decent boots.

And then, we crash a very expensive piece of equipment.....
Views: 182 The Expeditionists
The Pelton wheel was an early type of water turbine. In this case a surprisingly small wheel (about 4 horse power) was driving a 5 stamp quartz crushing battery used in the mid to late 1800's for gold mining in New Zealand. The early days of the New Zealand Gold Rush occurred in 1861 with alluvial or placer gold fields of Otago in the South Island and quartz hard rock mining in the North Island of New Zealand in 1867. Gold Rush Online (www.KaeLewis.com) includes descriptions of the gold rush and a database which allows you to search over 50,000 entries of registered gold mining claims called miners rights and other records. We strongly recommend visiting Gold Fields Mining Centre in Otago, New Zealand where you can see the old gold mining methods in action using original equipment. Goldmine-Experience is another excellent display including a stamper battery, separation table, a mine and working gold mining and separation equipment at Thames in the North Island (www.goldmine-experience.co.nz).

Gold prospecting in Coromandel Forest Park
In the Parakiwai Valley of Coromandel Forest Park, gold prospecting is closing conservation land and destroying the habitat of Archey's frogs. Local guide Clive Duxfield showed Forest & Bird Regional Manager Rebecca Stirnemann through the valley, and discovered fresh damage from prospecting sites. The area is known habitat for the citically endangered Archey's frog, and even with the best efforts at mitigation, there is going to be an impact on them. These frogs are more precious than any gold. The Government should be protecting the remaining places where they live, not allowing gold mining to destroy this specially protected conservation land. Learn more about these frogs and their valley in the Spring issue of Forest & Bird magazine, in letterboxes this week. Join Forest & Bird to get your copy: http://www.forestandbird.org.nz/joinus

Gold Rush Expeditions -Walker Gold Mine for Sale - Montana - 2016
The Walker mine is located just outside of Twin Bridges, Montana in the Tidal Wave mining district. Mines in this area were first located in the mid 1800s and have documented production into the 1930s. The Walker and the surrounding mines were historically worked for gold. The Walker claim consists of a series of shafts, adits, and prospects that may interconnect on lower levels. There is a collapsed headframe above what looks to be a double compartment shaft and a collapsed adit that would be accessible with some clearing. An easily accessible 2 wheel drive road to the claim will have you on your way to finding gold in this beautiful Montana landscape in no time.

Gold Mining and Historical Museum - Gympie
Gympie is about 160 kilometres north of the state capital, Brisbane. The city lies on the Mary River, which floods the town periodically. At the 2011 census, Gympie had a population of 18,602. The Gympie Gold Mining and Historical Museum houses memorabilia from the early gold mining era, as well as displays showcasing military, rural, transport, communications, and steam development in Australia. The town of Gympie has an important and colourful history, from being cited as the "Town that saved Queensland from Bankruptcy" to being the home of Andrew Fisher, Labor's second Prime Minister. Everybody is invited to visit our Museum where you can find out just how Gympie saved Queensland and discover more of the region's past and present. The Museum houses a vast collection of documentation, artifacts and photographs dating from the discovery of gold in 1867 by James Nash to the recently closed operations of the Gympie Eldorado Goldmine. In 1867, James Nash discovered 72 ounces of Gold in just 6 days. This started the Gold Rush in Gympie and it became known as The Town that saved Queensland from Bankruptcy. Gympie has has seen the rush for alluvial gold, deep reef mining, reprocessing of tailings and the re-opening of the mines in the mid 1980s. With the recent cessation of mining, there still remains the lure of residual gold and there may well be more to come. You can learn all about this, and much more of Gympies colourful and historical past right here at the Museum. The site comprises over 5 hectares containing over 30 display areas in and around 15 major buildings. Gympie is heralded as the town that saved Queensland from bankruptcy due to drought and low wool prices back in the 1800s. Thanks to James Nash discovery of gold where the Gympie Town Hall now stands back in 1867, the Gold Rush was started. Within 6 months of James Nash’ windfall, over 15,000 men had raced to Gympie to dig for their fortunes. The town grew at a rapid rate and amazingly many of the original buildings are still there. Gympie's Gold Mining and Historical Museum showcases not only Gympie's rich gold mining history but also other aspects of the region's past era including steam machinery, agricultural, dairying, vehicles, gemstone and shell collections. Andrew Fisher House (named after Australia's second Labour Prime Minister 1908-1915) is part of the Museums collection of historical buildings housed with period furniture. Also the award winning Military Collection of the Fifth Light Horse Regiment which includes military equipment and memorabilia of all sons and daughters of the Gympie area that went to war. Try your luck at the Museum's Gold Panning and take home a specimen of Gympie Gold - a great time for the whole family. Tour groups welcome.

AND I THOUGHT A 20th CENTURY CANADIAN 2,OOO OPT DIAMOND CORE SAMPLE WAS HIGH. A SENIOR INVESTOR SAID HE WOULD NOT BELIEVE IT EVEN IF HE SAW IT, EVEN THOUGH I SHOWED IT TO HIM IN PRINT IN THE HEMLO BOOK BY MATTHEW HART. "LOOK FOR GOLD WHERE GOLD WAS FOUND" CAUTIONED ME ABOUT REPORTING SUCH INFORMATION. WELL THERE ARE NOW 5 OTHER WITNESSES THAT SUCH GRADES ARE NOT RELEGATED TO ONLY HISTORIC LEGENDS FROM THE 1800S GOLD RUSHES. PAGE 117, PARAGRAPH 3: "The gold in the core in the photograph on Frank Lang's wall, from one of his Quebec properties, grades 3677.8 ounces of gold per ton." PARAGRAPH 5: "Considerable amounts of free gold appear in the diamond drill core from Hole No. 29 of D'Or Val Mines Ltd.'s Beacon Property. While it assayed at 3677.8 ounces of gold per ton, this spectacular sample is not considered representative of overall grade." NEXT PAGE: "But you never know what's down there, do you? You never know until you drill. ... In quartz, the gold is in veins. You could miss that by a quarter of millimeter, you'd never find it. How many more are there, that's all I ask. How much gold, just as rich as that, is down there?" - Frank Lang, legendary mining promoter, Hughes-Lang Group, downtown Vancouver BC Canada. Quotes from book: "Golden Giant: Hemlo and the Rush for Canada's Gold" By Matthew Hart, 1945- Published by Douglas & McIntyre, (c) 1985, 176 pages ISBN 0888944675, 9780888944672 http://www.amazon.com/Golden-giant-Hemlo-rush-Canadas/dp/0888944675/ref=sr_11_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1231795050&sr=11-1 My book is signed by Schiralli with message and is a textbook. The 14,827 OPT-Au sample did hand-weigh approx 3 times more, than if solid steel. 16,000 OPT is half gold ore if considering 32,000 ounces per ton (OPT). The president of Constantine Metal Resources Ltd, a geologist, did say specific gravity testing was done on the 16,969 OPT specimen - the results indicated it breached 17,000 OPT but held to a lower figure so as to allow for a small percentage variance by another heavy metal, so the reported gold grade was toned down to 16,969 of oz/ton. Apparently they will never mill those samples.

Gold and Silver New Zealand: a beginners guide to technical analysis
http://goldsurvivalguide.co.nz/ask-us-a-question/get-a-quote-for-gold-or-silver/ Gold and Silver New Zealand: Learn how to use 2 simple technical analysis indicators to determine lower risk times to buy gold and silver in NZ dollars. Visit the link for more on gold & silver in NZ. Personally we believe using technical analysis in isolation is of limited value.  When markets are being flooded with printed money they won't necessarily follow historical trends, which, in its simplest form is basically what technical analysis is. However, used in conjunction with other indicators and fundamental analysis, technical analysis has its place.  Say you've done your homework and as a result believe that precious metals are in a long-term bull market.  (Looking to see whether any of the indicators in this article have come about may be useful in assessing this: http://goldsurvivalguide.co.nz/when-will-you-know-its-time-to-sell-gold/).  Technical analysis may then be useful in helping to determine a good initial entry point. The easiest way to explain a few useful bits of technical analysis for gold and silver is to actually do some - analysis that is.  We'll look at a couple of simple to follow indicators: ▪ 200 day moving average (MA).  (Here's the definition from investopedia:  http://www.investopedia.com/terms/m/movingaverage.asp) ▪ Relative Strength Index (RSI) (and the definition from wikipedia:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Relative_Strength_Index) So let's turn our eye to the current NZ dollar charts for gold and silver.  First up silver. The price has gone from well above the 50 day moving average (MA) (blue line) to now well below. In fact we were only about $4 from the 200 day MA (red line), which as we've mentioned before is often an area where the price for gold and silver finds "support" and bottoms. At the top of the chart is the RSI - basically an indicator of over bought (70 and above) or oversold (30 and below). Silver can stay over bought for long periods of time however. On this chart you can see it was in or around overbought territory for close to 2 months until the sell-off. So in a matter of days we went from one extreme to the other. You can see that when the RSI touched 30 three days ago, the price reversed and started to climb. Now on to a longer term chart of NZD silver over 3 years. Notice that whenever the RSI hits 30 (indicated by the green circles at the top of the chart) this generally coincided with the silver price also bottoming out (the green circles within the chart). Was it 100%? Nope. You can see that in mid August 2008 the RSI went below 30 and the price turned up. But then the RSI and price both went lower again. The silver price didn't bottom until October, 2 months later and some $3-4 lower. But the point is that buying on an oversold RSI within the confines of a bull market can generally make for a good entry position in the longer term. On this chart you'll also notice that, apart from mid to late 2008, the price generally found support at or not far below the 200 day MA (red line). So this is another useful indicator to keep an eye on in terms of potential buying opportunities. For gold we can take note of the same indicators. The RSI indicator also often indicates a bottoming of the NZ dollar gold price as shown in the chart below. And the 200 day MA historically has shown support for the price of gold. Of course there are exceptions. As you can see above, in mid 2009 the price fell well below the 200 day MA and stayed there for 4 months. However since then it has only briefly dipped below the "red line". So if you're in for the "long haul", then using some simple technical indicators like these two can be useful in determining lower risk entry points. Just remember they're not fool proof, which is why it's worth considering "averaging in". That is buying in "tranches" close to your buying zone. So once the price has dipped consider taking an initial position and then buying more regularly after this.

kaituna gold workings
The track starts from the car park at the end of Carters Road and continues right through to Westhaven Inlet on the West Coast (8-9 hours). Most people, however, walk only to the site of the old Kaituna gold workings (20 min) or on to Kaituna Forks, a 2-hour return trip. From the car park, cross Little Granity Creek using the footbridge and follow the farm track for 400 m to the start of the walk. A short track takes you past the remains of gold sluicing operations, water races, tailing piles and a small cave. The side track then cuts back onto the main track. Beyond the Kaituna Forks, the track changes to a 'route' and is suitable only for experienced and fit trampers. At the forks there is a river crossing which is impassable in flood. From here it is a further 5-6 hours over a marked route to Knuckle Hill. The route climbs over two ridges and crosses two streams before crossing an open pahiki area to the base of Knuckle Hill. There it meets the old logging road that leads down to the car park on Dry Road. Getting there Kaituna Track begins approximately 15 km from Collingwood. Follow the main road from Collingwood to Bainham inland to where Carters Road begins, on a tight corner. The carpark is at the end of the road. Nature and conservation In the beautiful native forest there are magnificent specimens of northern rātā, pukatea and rimu which tower over a sub-canopy of nīkau palms, heketara, wineberry, kāmahi, and māhoe. Beech species are also present. There are many species of fern, orchid, fungi and perching plants.The rich forest and mild climate allow a wide range of birds to flourish: kererū (the New Zealand pigeon), tūī, fantail, tomtit, bush robin, rifleman, silvereye and bellbird. History and culture The Kaituna Goldfield was first worked in 1859 and continued until the late 1800s, although little gold was ever recovered. The present track follows the original pack-horse track to the Kaituna goldfield. Know before you go There are no huts or campsites on this track.
