I started prospecting with my Grandfather when I was a teenager. My Grandfather took me goldpanning and then I graduated to detecting after being inspired by a work colleague who had a metal detector and kept bringing the gold she had found into show me. I bought my first metal detector, a Garrett Deepseeker and I was hooked. I still remember the first gold nugget I ever found. Wasnt I excited! Since then I have found hundreds of ounces of gold nuggets just by using a metal detector. The thrill of the hunt has kept me passionate about gold prospecting. In 2017, this all consuming passion has lead us down the path to opening Lucky Strike Gold Prospecting, a prospecting equipment shop assisted by a friendly, helpful team and all the equipment you will need in your search for gold and treasure.

This is Darren and there’s not too much this guy doesnt know about prospecting. He is very free with his knowledge as he thinks there is nothing better than igniting the same passion for gold prospecting in somebody else that he has.
