Hullo everyone.
Freshwater diving.Remote stunning location in Central Otago.
Hi my name is Ian i am self employed and dive for gold during the summer months in the mountains 40km from queenstown.I am looking for help from December -may approx.
I use a suction dredge for gold recovery which is opperated underwater a bit like a vaccum cleaner.I dont expect anyone to dive but if they want too they can and i dont mind teaching someone if they want to have a go.
The main reason for help is saftey for me.Having someone watching things while i am diving.Helping to repair gear.working a electric winch and helping with washups.Also helping around the camp.I have vegi gardens and hunt for meat supply.I have 2 cabins one i can drive to via 4wd .tractor.quad bike.My 2nd camp is 3hr walk up the valley or 5minutes in a helicopter.
The person i.m looking for must be into the outdoors .Alternative lifestyle like tramping (hiking)and nature .
It dosnt matter what anyone can do.If someone is reasonably practibale.likes being and working in the mountains away from it all and is easy going then it works .this is not a tourist related activity.for more imfo please contact Ian.
Also if anyone is cruising around the south coast and wants some where to stay theres accomadation and food in return for helping to paint a house.just some painting around windows outside.theres plenty of room couples welcome and the house is in the lovely settlement of colac baż
About Ian.easy going i like meeting people from overseas and have them stay doing kiwi activities like sometimes.looking for gemstones on the beach and exploring new places .when i.m not working.i.m interested in most things .like most my house tidy??
The last 20 odd years have spent the summers diving for gold in the mountains 40km from queenstown this is still a big adventure for me and so nice living and working the summers in the mountains.if you want to no more you.ll have to ask.cheers Ian
