    Rangiriri NZ

    Been a couple of years since the original post but oh well. Google Earth still does not show Rangiriri clearly, just like my home town of Huntly which is just up river (though south).

    This site unfortunately is protected as a historic site and no digging is allowed. There are sites around though where people can and have hunted. The odd cannonball and bullet has been found on the surrounding farmland but you would need to get permission.

    Even our old gold mining sites are protected under the Historic Places Act and it is hard to find places to search.

    There are still some old redoubts, pa sites about and Google Earth may show them.

    Good hunting

    Hey there, what parts of NZ do you search? What have you found there?

    Re: Rangiriri NZ

    My name is Gary and Iím from the United States. I was wondering if there is anyone in New Zealand, particularly around the Lake Taupo area, who would be an amateur treasure hunter or metal detector user. I would also be interested in any organizations or amateur clubs of metal detector users either from this area or that held searches in this area.

    I am looking for the proverbial needle in the haystack. I lost a small gold band of great sentimental value there in late 12/1994 early 1/1995 and Iím trying to locate anyone who might have found it while searching for items with their metal detector. Thank you for any assistance you can offer.
