Beautiful New Zealand gold-bearing river

Some gear for finding gold. Weka optional.

In the photo: sluice box, pair of leather gloves, garden fork tied to a stick, short-handled shovel, geological hammer (which doubles as a small pick), a small trowel, a gold pan—either metal (at the back) or plastic, and, of course, a bottle to put your gold in. If you want to read about some other fossickers' refinements, see the gold news page.


Don’t forget some lunch, warm clothing and plenty of hot drinks if you are working in the mountains
