Newbie from Australia

ViestiKirjoittaja Chookfoot » 19.06.2012 12:54

Hi to everyone.
I will be visiting from Australia in August, looking forward to travelling Finnish Lapland and hope to meet some good people, do some panning and perhaps some detecting.
I am an administrator for a popular prospecting forum in Australia. http://australiangoldfields.freeforums.org/index.php
On the goldfields in Australia we enjoy getting out in the bush with mates, sitting around the camp fire with a beer and having a joke. Sometimes we find some gold ! :lol:
This will be my second trip to Finland, the first was in January... very cold for me.
Anyhow, as part of my research, I came across your forum and decided to join and post a bit about myself.
Any advice would be gratefully accepted.
Kiitos :)

Hi Matson, So you are the famous finder of the 16.3 grammer. Well done !
I have seen photos of it on the internet... very nice.
I also use a 4500 but my biggest piece is only 9grams I found in 2011.
Kuva
I learned today from T.U.K.E.S that I am too late to get a panning permit before my visit but I am not giving up.
Nuggets in my part of Australia are rare too.
I have found 2.7g and 1.2g only this year. Many weekends work for no gold at all.
That is when I get the pan out and at least find a few specks of gold.
Thanks for your comments, maybe we will meet on the goldfields one day.
Cheers !

Thanks Pera, you guys have got to stop being sorry for your english.
Your english is 1000 times better than my Finnish. :lol:
Yes, I think I should join the association.
I can fill out the application on-line, how long does it take to be approved ?
Hopefully I can pay with visa card.
I have looked at the maps and see there are some claims in Lemmenjoki NP and some to the east near Tankavaara.
I will only have a 2wd car but I like bush walking so maybe Lemmenjoki would be best ?
Accomodation will be the next problem. :?
Any advice guys ?

the easiest way is to pay in finland, membership shall take effect immerdiately. there are tree places to pay, Savottakahvila , Kultakioski and Petronellan pysäkki (Kauko Matilainen,summertime executive director. not always on place.no english ).the best in the english language might be in Savottakahvila( on Road 4 and 4 km south of Saariselkä). Kultakioski on kuttura road ,16 km west of road 4(especially goldminers place(from there 11 km to Sopukulta and Bizebaze Palsi)) :ugeek: :D
