  • Description

    Australian is in the middle o a new gold rush ... an electronic one, and the country which once produced forty per cent of the world's gold, is seeing anew breed of prospector. No longer is he the old timer armed only with a pick and shovel, but a weekend fossicker with enough money to buy the latest in metal detectors. The electronic devices - modern day versions of the old war time mine detectors .. make prospecting easy, and once again gold fever is in the air. Charles Wooley of the Australian Broadcasting Commission's Four Corners programme went off to the diggings for this report.
