High bankers

(1/2) > >>

The Aussie Boy:
Hello fellow fossickers

I am looking for a design of a high banker or somewhere in Sydney or Newcastle or anywhere in between where I can buy a mini high banker like the gold hog piglet or at
least around that 500 to 600 bucks

regards Harry

Jimnyjerry:
Unless you are using the highbanker in your own backyard you will not legally be able to use it with a water pump in any state except Victoria.  There are diagrams on how to build one on the Prospecting Australia forum see as an example https://www.prospectingaustralia.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?id=1115

The Aussie Boy:
do i need a lince

Rusted:
I think high bankers aren't allowed in Victoria either.
Yes you need a licence for any prospecting or fossicking anywhere in Australia, cost varies from state to state.

MALACHI:
That's an interesting revelation Rusted. It would be nice to know how true that is. I hope your right ! ! Nearly every time over the last 10 years I've been fossicking Reedy Creek, I've seen and heard someone operating a high banker or similar motorised (petrol) device. Personally I prefer panning for gold. I find the activity therapeutic, the sound of the running water is very calming.  beers
