Tuition Feedback and Reviews


"Just had a fantastic half day training session with John for our GPZ 7000 and SDC 2300. He was thorough and very easy to understand. The training was relevant to our machines and it was obvious he is competent in all aspects of the equipment. Training is obviously his passion! He left us feeling confident & competent in the use of our equipment. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending John to anybody, whether they be new prospectors or someone that has become frustrated and just wants to hone their skills. We really appreciate you making the time to help us achieve our goals, John. Worth every cent, your expertise is priceless. We hope to catch up again in the future and look forward to maybe even doing a Tagalong tour with you. Many thanks."

"I was an absolute newbie at Gold panning. Having gained interest from the gold mining shows on TV I was intrigued to see how it was really done in out in the creeks, so I booked an advanced Gold Panning Lesson with Eureka Prospecting which is just 2 hrs north of Brisbane. I met up with John who took me to a creek that ?Old Timers? had previously worked... John showed me the technique and within 20 minutes I was able to practice 2 pans by using some cut up lead bits mixed with creek gravel. My 3rd pan I was able to use Johns "Paydirt? bag which produced my first ever result ???? Gold Gold Gold boo yeah ! So then John was able to walk and talk me through the creek explaining how gold travels and where it rests which was really interesting, we selected an area, picked up some dirt, washed and rinsed and panned some more. My final pan yielded a result which I was really happy with, and finished up the day with a billy tea and beautiful damper bread. Thanks to John for the history/physics/geology/technique lesson and demonstrating how to gold pan correctly, I now have a small degree of confidence with it and I?ll be buying a gold panning kit, practicing lots and then venture out somewhere. Gold Fever is so catching when you see actual gold for the first time, beautiful stuff, highly recommend the experience. Kind regards ?
