Gold Prospecting moonlight
 
17:48
At this location the second largest nugget ever discovered in New Zealand was turfed up in 1917 by prospectors who were re-working old tailings from the 1860's gold-rush to Moonlight Creek. The 87.5 ounce nugget was named the 'Victory'. George Moonlight moved from the Victorian Goldfields (Australia) to New Zealand, then caught a steamer to the west coast of the South Island. George travelled from one gold rush to another, sometimes striking good gold, often not. His remains were found on the 16 September 1884 at Hope Bush (Cow Creek) having gone missing the year before on a lone prospecting trip, and is buried at the Nelson cemetery. Gold was discovered at a site, about 40 kilometres north-east of Greymouth, by prospectors called Cabet (surname) and 'Panama Bill', in 1868. They decided to name the new goldfield after George Moonlight. The creek and neighbouring terraces contained coarse dark nuggetty gold, sometimes impregnated with rose quartz (or rose tinted quartz). Many large nuggets have been found historically at the site. These include W.H. Jones 52 oz, George Fox 78 oz, William Coulter (known as Santa Anna) 47 oz, Mitchell and Russell (surnames) 79 oz, 60 oz, 40 oz, 2 x 33 oz, 22.50 oz and 20 oz, 'Flash' Barry (named after his spending spree in Melbourne from gold finds in the Victorian goldfields) 37 oz, Young and party several from 37 oz to 23 oz, Alfred Bliss 37 oz, Thomas Wood 36 oz, and much more that goes unrecorded. Retired geologist Jock Braithwaite when interviewed in part about Moonlight Creek, gives a fine definition of a nugget: ' A nugget is if you drop it in the dish, and it goes ding'. The site is well known amongst gold fossickers, lured by the romantic name, and the improbable promises of riches, from the many nuggets found here in the past. Gold prospecting requires a permit, but not in the seventeen public fossicking sites on the South Island (always check the Department of Mines website for the most up to date information). Prosecutions for mining without a permit do occur, as a property owner near the entrance of the Moonlight Road found in 2016. Non motorised fossicking is allowed, in designated fossicking sites, including panning dishes, and small scale sluicing. The thought here is families will come, with children given the opportunity to pan for gold in the creek, finding a few specks, then going home happy having spent the day in the beautiful New Zealand outdoors. Not everyone buys into this. Online forums note conflicts with people behaving badly, including a local rock club who arrived, and were threatened by a man clearing trees. Gold does funny things to people, and does not always bring out the best in human nature. Small nuggets have been reportedly found up to recent times. The best time to go is spring and early summer, after the winter floods have potentially washed gold nuggets to the surface. The best time to go to avoid people is mid-winter, when there is knee deep mud, constant drizzling rain, and sub-zero temperatures. The entrance road to Moonlight Creek can be found at a location called Atarau, on the main road on the northern side of the Grey River. Where the road turns sharply is a pull-out area with prominent 'Moonlight' sign, and minor gold mining equipment. The fossicking site is via a narrow gravel road heading north from here into the thickly forested hills for 10 kilometres (sometimes used by logging trucks), to a place now known as Anderson's Flat. The fossicking area covers 59 768 ha, beginning 1.32 kilometres above the bridge crossing. A gold location near Queenstown is also called Moonlight Creek. Prospectors rushed to the site after the 1868 find, many described as 'hatters', a gold mining term for an elderly prospector having gone slightly mad in the head from gold fever. The focus was on a gutter running parallel to the creek, and disappearing into a terrace. Much tunnelling into the terrace failed to locate the gutter extension. There were reefs at Moonlight Creek, but it appears not enough for large company involvement. Several pegged claims, and a couple started work, but amounted to little. The creek was pegged by dredging companies with a similar result. An 1875 report states by this stage many had left, with one store remaining. Coarse gold was also found at Caledonian Creek, 5 miles away: Baxter Creek for fine gold; and Garden Gully, all seeing small numbers of miners around the same time as the Moonlight Creek rush. Long (like all day) difficult (steep, muddy, wet etc) but beautiful walks and mountain bike trails eg. Croesus Track,can be taken through the lush temperate rainforest to the Garden Gully site, containing swing bridges, a 1905 era stamp battery, mining relics, and tin gold miner huts.

Gold Prospecting Nelson Creek and Walk.
 
16:14
www.patreon.com/user?u=4325309 Nelson Creek has a number of short walks to choose from, including the wheelchair accessible Colls Dam Walk. To find the starting point for the walks, walk through an old hand picked tunnel and cross the Nelson Creek suspension bridge. Callaghans Track Time to the lookout: 30 min, one way Distance: 1.3 km, one way Time to Prices Creek Road: 45 min, one way Distance: 2 km, one way This easy to moderate track climbs steadily to a mossy knoll lookout point where you get a view into the bush clad valleys on either side of the ridge. On the way to the lookout point the track crosses a couple of deep tail races and a large water race as well as passing through regenerating beech. As the track climbs the forest is mostly podocarp/hardwood with rimu, miro, rata, quintinia and kamahi being the most common species. After the lookout point, the track levels out and eventually links with Prices Creek Road- a forestry road. Return by the same route. Tailrace Walk Time: 20 min return Distance: 900 m This short walk crosses a number of impressive tailraces. Old gold workings are also visible throughout the red and silver beech which are the dominant tree species. Colls Dam Walk This walk has wheelchair access Time: 40 min loop track Distance: 1.1 km This high quality walk must be started from Gows Creek carpark if you wish to get wheelchair access. The walk takes in some good examples of tailraces and tailings as well as providing a pleasant lookout point above the historic Colls Dam. Getting there From Greymouth follow SH7 about 25 km north to Ngahere. Turn right at the Ngahere-Kopara Road and carry on to the Nelson Creek Settlement. The turn off to access the picnic, camping area and walks is opposite Nelson Creek Hotel. Nature and conservation The forest in the Nelson Creek area, which is predominantly beech, is now regenerating. It was felled in the past to provide fuel and timber for huts, fluming and other mining structures, and was used in farming to a small degree. Red and silver beech can be seen on the lower slopes and hard beech on the higher slopes. Tailings The Nelson Creek area is formed from layers of sandstone overlaid by glacial outwash gravels. Gold was concentrated in trough-like hollows on the surface of the sandstone. Ground sluicing was the main method of working the gold. Sluicing needed a good supply of water which was directed over the working face, washing the gravels out. Large rocks were lifted aside and stacked as tailings, while the smaller material was washed down tailraces containing riffle boxes to 'save' the gold. Tailraces were also essential to remove excess water from the working area. History and culture Nelson Creek has had a varied goldmining history of success and decline from its beginnings in 1865, when it was rushed as a shallow creek working, which yielded shotty course gold. Some areas were rich in gold but finds were patchy. At the height of the rush over 1200 miners were scattered throughout Try Again Terrace downstream from Nelson Creek, but numbers fell almost immediately, once the productive ground was worked out. Nelson Creek suspension bridge The suspension bridge crossing Nelson Creek is a historic bridge. It was originally built in 1872 and has been rebuilt a couple of times, most recently by the New Zealand Forest Service in 1982 using the original plans. Know before you go You should wear comfortable footwear and take wet weather clothes as the West Coast is known for sudden changes in weather. Wasps will be present through out this area in summer. Take care off formed tracks as shafts and tunnels are scattered throughout the area.

Nelson Creek Reserve & Camping Ground, West Coast, NZ. Nelson Creek Camping Ground is a perfectly functional campsite in a lovely location with really interesting walks through historic gold mine workings. Rusty relics from those pioneering times add to the interest. (A torch would be handy for exploring the deep mining trenches some of which are actually caves). Lovely river for swimming and gold panning. And a little zip line there as well! Large area, some coverage. Nice full toilet facility. Large sink for dishes, etc. rubbish/recycling bins. Beautiful place to stay, highly recommended, really busy during summer. This is a community run campsite that is maintained by the locals to fund local projects and improve the campsite.

ABANDONED Old Mining Settlement and Carbonization Plant AMAZING! - New Zealand
 
17:50
Today we are exploring what is left of a long forgotten mining settlement and carbonization plant. Out of all the explores I've done over the years, nothing has truly compared to the beauty of this amazingly preserved abandoned location. Well off the beaten path, this once booming location now sits quietly rusting away, slowly being reclaimed by nature. Join us as we take a look at what was left behind. Twitter - https://twitter.com/UnchartedTraveI?lang=en Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/uncharted.travel/?hl=en Mining first began in Rotowaro by the Taupiri coal company began after a bridge over the Waikato river and railway to the area were constructed in 1915. The mine instantly saw success, and in 1928, it was producing an average of 11,000 tons of coal every month. Just west of the mine, a small community of about 500 houses was built so that miners could live within close proximity to the mine and increase efficiency.To reduce waste, a carbonization plant was constructed in the 1930's to convert any unusable or low quality coal into carbon briquettes. As the mine progressed, the carbonization plant ran smoothly until 1985 when a major fire on the complex caused a retort to explode releasing mass amounts of hazardous chemicals into the surrounding area. After the incident, the plants ownership changed hands several times, and with no one willing to do anything about the toxic wasteland that wast created, the plant was quickly abandoned. Now it lays completely derelict, slowly being taken back by nature, a nod to a now forgotten revolutionary mining period. Thanks for watching!

Gold and Silver New Zealand: a beginners guide to technical analysis
 
10:27
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.

Panning for Gold in New Zealand
 
01:02
The South Island of New Zealand looks very much like the American Rockies, and has gold deposits as well. We visited a former gold mining town where Leanna and Dad were able to pan for gold in a natural creek. They actually found rocks with small flecks of gold ! Loni and I were fortunate to be able to travel the world with our growing family from the late 80's through the early 2000's We're uploading and editing these videos so they are available to our grown children and extended family and friends. If we are able to reach others with like interests in travel, please give us a comment or two. It's not vlogging... yet- Back in the day, turning the camera around and talking into it (vlogging) would have been pretentious. We may come back and do voice overlays on some of these and perhaps video overlays, till then these are fluid videos of the moment with titles added and sometimes music tracks. All our travel was without the internet (no browsers before 1995, much less websites & email). I smile when today's vloggers are pained by poor internet connections. Ever use fax and phone cards ?? Could it be time for us to try a redo with current technology?... Equipment- Our Camera was a Sony TRV520 Digital 8 tape based movie camera. One level down from HD (remember digital cable?) We used this camera from 1999 till 2007 during our travels. Prior to that we recorded in Hi8 and standard 8. Some of the older tapes reflect this lack of clarity / resolution but of course, being family memories, we don't mind. Editing- Premier Pro CC 18 by Adobe.

Brunner coal mines
 
20:40
The Brunner Mine was a coal mine on the West Coast of the South Island in New Zealand. The Brunner Mine was one of several mines situated on the banks of the Grey River, at an area known as "Coal Gorge" between the townships of Stillwater and Taylorville. The town of Brunner (formerly Brunnerton) is nearby. Coal was discovered on the West Coast by Nelson surveyor Thomas Brunner "during the most arduous of his journeys in search of more agricultural land".[1] The coal was of extremely high quality and it did not take long before it attracted interest. And, of course, "The West Coast had the added attraction of gold mining and it seems that the employment opportunity offered by coal mining was in the difficult economic times not one to be turned down".[1] Brunner Mine disaster[edit] Main article: Brunner Mine disaster In March 1896 an explosion deep in the mine killed all 65 miners inside, and was labelled the worst mining disaster in New Zealand’s history. It seemed most likely that the explosion was caused by firedamp, a common hazard in coal mines, where a pocket of methane gas is accidentally ignited and explodes.

Where there had previously been a Māori Pā, streets of tents sprang up providing accommodation, restaurants and taverns to a population of about 3000 people. About 25,000 ounces (710,000 g) of gold was recovered in 1864.[3] The surface gold was worked out within two years and most of the miners moved to new gold discoveries on the West Coast.[4][5] Steam dredges continued to work the river into the 20th century

Nelson Creek, Ngahere. Colls Dam
 
01:06
Colls Dam Walk with wheelchair access, Time: 40 min This high quality walk takes in some good examples of tailraces and tailings as well as providing a pleasent lookout point above the historic Colls Dam and a lookout point at a memorial seat. The forest is mostly podocarp/hardwood with rimu, miro, rata, quintinia and kamahi being the most common species. Nelson Creek has had a varied goldmining history of success and decline from its beginnings in 1865, when it was rushed as a shallow creek working, which yielded shotty course gold. Some areas were rich in gold but finds were patchy. At the height of the rush over 1200 miners were scattered throughout Try Again Terrace downstream from Nelson Creek, but numbers fell almost immediately, once the productive ground was worked out.

Nelson Creek, Ngahere, Callaghans Track Outlook.
 
00:51
Callaghans Track, Time: 45 min. This easy to moderate track climbs steadily to a mossy knoll lookout point where you get a view into the bush clad valleys on either side of the ridge. On the way to the lookout point the track crosses a couple of deep tail races and a large water race as well as passing through regenerating beech. As the track climbs the forest is mostly podocarp/hardwood with rimu, miro, rata, quintinia and kamahi being the most common species. After the lookout point, the track levels out and eventually links with Prices Creek Road- a forestry road. Return by the same route. Nelson Creek has had a varied goldmining history of success and decline from its beginnings in 1865, when it was rushed as a shallow creek working, which yielded shotty course gold. Some areas were rich in gold but finds were patchy. At the height of the rush over 1200 miners were scattered throughout Try Again Terrace downstream from Nelson Creek, but numbers fell almost immediately, once the productive ground was worked out.

Well, we did it - 353 people registered and simultaneously panned for gold around Gold Town Lake, Ross, New Zealand. That broke the previous record, held by Soboba Casino in San Jacinto, California on from 25 October 2015. So, now we send all our info., photos & video to the Guinness World Record people and wait for their official stamp of approval. A big thank you to John & Katie Dunbier, the Ross Community Society, the Ross Volunteer Fire Brigade for the grand finale fireworks display, and the Ross School children for their brilliant Guys. Thanks also to the Ross School PTA & the Ross Play Group for their yummy food stalls and the face-painting tent, the Ross Fireworks Festival Committee + Peter & Julie Manera for the timber donated for the bonfire. Here's a sample of how much fun we had today!

The Old Ghost Road Mountain Biking New Zealand
 
13:01
Mountain biking The Old Ghost Road, the South Island, New Zealand. PLANNING & PREPARATION https://tinyurl.com/y9m3nkmw ROUTE DESCRIPTION https://tinyurl.com/ycynaxd8 It is a 2-3 day bikepacking great ride, and also an excellent tramping or walking trail. For my trip I took my time - four days - so I could make this film…and also because I’m no fit or expert biker. The Old Ghost Road is an 85km single track mountain bike trail and walking path in the upper South Island of New Zealand. It begins at Lyell - near the town of Murchison - and it ends on the West Coast at the small settlement of Seddonville. The Old Ghost Road traverses mountains, deep river gorges, dense forest and rough backcountry. It is remote, exposed, with alpine sections above the treeline. On a clear day, there are incredible views in every direction. The steep, jagged rocks and golden tussocky peaks are spectacular.  The Old Ghost Road is so named because segments of the trail were former gold mining towns, now abandoned to nature. On the first day, as you ride up the hill from Lyell, there are fragments of these previous settlements. They include schools, hotels and communities that sprung up around the gold rush of the late 1800s. While there isn’t much left to see of these towns (a few walls, metal implements, a graveyard), it is fascinating to think that what is now a wilderness area was once well populated.  Because I wanted to take my time - taking photos, filming and exploring along the way - I decided to spend three nights (three and a half days) in the huts on the trail. There was also the small matter of not being fit or young. I could do with losing a few pounds too.  Most people do the ride in two nights (two and a half days) and some masochists in one night (two days). A story was circulating among riders on the trail about a guy who rode to there and back in a day...apparently stopping at the Seddonvile general store and pub to buy a muesli bar.  Had I not been messing about with cameras along the way, I think I could have managed it in three days. But then, what’s the rush? I still enjoyed the buzz of zipping through the downhill sections, but then also had time to scout the alluring side paths, rivers and hills.

Nelson - the WOW factor - Roadside Stories
 
04:12
The lack of flat land around Nelson led settlers to practise horticulture rather than farming. Tobacco, hops, tomatoes and grapes have all been grown in the area, and wine was produced by German immigrants. Also known for its arts and crafts, Nelson was the birthplace of the World of WearableArt (WOW) show in 1987. Nelson region: horticulture, http://www.teara.govt.nz/en/nelson-region/10 Picking tobacco, http://www.teara.govt.nz/en/hops-tobacco-and-hemp/2/2 Hop picking, http://www.teara.govt.nz/en/hops-tobacco-and-hemp/1/3 Nelson region: arts, culture and science, http://www.teara.govt.nz/en/nelson-region/14 Dragon Fish wearable artwork, http://www.teara.govt.nz/en/nelson-places/2/3 Italians, http://www.teara.govt.nz/en/italians Germans, http://www.teara.govt.nz/en/germans — Roadside Stories are a series of audio guides to places of interest on major road trips in New Zealand.
