As a hobby turned professional prospector I struggled to find maps that suited my needs. Being a modern-day prospector, I wanted a digital map on my mobile or tablet device, as I found paper-based maps cumbersome.

 

My Goals for mapping were:

 

  • Ability to use Maps on both Apple/Android Phones and Tablets.
  • No Internet connection required unlike Google Maps [Fully Offline]. 
  • Maps relevant to Gold Detector Prospecting.
  • Fully usable in the field no limitations.
  • Affordable.
  • Lifetime Free updates * for all Map Pack purchases.
  • Carry in your back pocket

What Mapping Software do I Need?

The Map Packs are designed to run on both Apple/Android phones/tablets using the Application Australian Geology Travel Maps from  Trilobite. The software is  available from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store and is maintained by a great Australian who is a passionate Geologist. The software has a very simple intuitive interface for users which is a design goal for the developer.

If you would like a demo of the Gold Maps I am more than happy to give you a remote demonstration using Google meet, please drop me a message if you require help.

Gold Map Packs

The Gold map Packs have been created with the maps I have been using throughout my prospecting career, and I have found to be an invaluable resource. The Map packs are priced to be affordable for everyone which I believe makes great value when you compare to the cost of other hard copy maps on the market.

Map Packs have been created for the areas in BLACK on the map index below. Areas in RED are currently being created.

Each pack contains the following:  

  • Custom Map Created for Gold Prospectors [covering approx. 500sq km]
  • Detailed Geological Map
  • Topographic Map
  • Historic Quartersheet [where available] 

Before entering any land, you need to ensure that you have the appropriate permission if required, no responsibility can be taken for the accuracy of these maps as they are based on the Government Map Data set at the time of publication. If unsure you must seek appropriate permission to enter private land.
