With the 2021 Gold Season well and truly underway, you’ll find “Goldies” out and about in force. From the world-famous “Golden Triangle” in Victoria to outback Western Australia. They all have one thing in common – find GOLD!
Ask any one of them, and they’ll tell you, it’s no easy task to find the elusive yellow metal. Some scratch around for years and find nothing, whilst others seem to fall over it. Those that do find it are usually very secretive, for good reasons.
Trying to identify where gold is most likely to be found is the key to finding it. Historical gold maps are a brilliant way to research gold finds from the past. Enter “Historical Gold Maps“, the #1 site for resourcing goldfields of yesteryear.
“Historical Gold Maps is a directory of old Australian gold maps, available to view online for free. This directory makes it easier to find historical goldfields maps for specific regions without having to sort through a large number of other maps (town allotment, roads, aerial survey, etc.) in the State and National Library catalogues.”
Goldfields in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia are all covered in brilliant detail. If you’re a serious gold hound, this site is a must-have in your research arsenal.
If you can’t find gold using Historical Gold Maps, take up stamp collecting….
