There is no promise that you will find gold but you will be given every opportunity with access to exclusive tenements that have not been thrashed with the knowledge on how and where to find it. We only use the latest Minelab detectors that have proven themselves in finding gold in these harsh environments.
There is an old belief that every nugget has the finders name on it. Be prepared to get gold fever and make new prospecting buddies!!!
