Separate tribes spoke the same language and were united in some ways, but not believed to be governed by one body.  Historic finds reveal that separate tribes had, for example, differences in their artistic expression as well as burial practices.

Beach comber enhances wealth once again through gold finds on lucky spot.


Mr.Gregg Cooke from Australia is a regular treasure hunter and gold prospector at Surfer's Paradise beach. His efforts have been rewarded multiple times with various finds. He found 3 gold nuggets initially and struck even more luck with a follow-up find of 4 more nuggets. Mr. Cooke said he and his mate reckon the nuggets are most likely scattered broken fragments from the same rock. The spot where his finds originate from is a closely guarded secret.

 He says there are many people on the beach searching for the same treasures. Gold is a well-known occurrence around the area, not only around reefs and on the beach but also in streams. When erosion breaks down rocks, the metal is often revealed. Mines operated in Ormeau and Kingston in the 1960s and a significant amount of precious metal was extracted.Mr.Gregg's nugget finds weigh between 20g and 70g each and the gold is embedded in quartz rock which indicates it is naturally occurring native mineral. What is next for this lucky gold prospector? We could very well be reporting more finds in the near future.
