Yes I agree MrSydney, One of my Q's to them would be, 'Why are those who constantly do the right thing being penalised...

Time for Fossicking Licences to be re-instated with big fines attached for those who choose to conduct their activities Illegally...

It has been too long between Drinks  :P,
Im well but just as stressed as You with No Fossicking for a very long time... ;D
Next Year will be the 'Year of Fossicking"...  ;D

Have you changed Your Email?  PM me your New one... beers

Gemster.... beers

Yes MrSydney Its very REAL....

There are several names I would love to post on WHO is responsible for forcing this closure, but as Charges are pending and Warrants Outstanding, I think that may compromise their Investigations....  :-X

Are You saying they have 'Spies' among Us... :o

Good I hope they read this then......  :)

"Start looking after the places that you have been given to look after..... Get your fat bums off your Plush Chairs and start getting out there and start fining these a-holes who are killing our Hobby and STOP the illegal activities in OUR Parks..."

Its pretty easy to 'Catch' them you know, but you actually need to be there to catch them...

Will that help...? :P

I wouldn't mind at all if NPWS wanted to have a 'chat'. I actually have close to 1000 questions for them.. ;)

Well I 'heard' some bad/sad news today.... Looks like Torrington is going to be closed to Fossickers...... NPWS are going to ban Fossicking in their section of Torrington... And with Pacific Copper being Private Property, there's not much left that is accessible... Recent fires have also played a big part and its still a mess and no sign of a clean-up happening anytime soon.....

NPWS have turned a blind eye to Stannifer and Tingha for years. But,  it is a Conservation Area and NOT on the Approved list of Conservation Areas where you are allowed to Fossick.

 But every day people are posting their finds on Social Media from that area... Funny how the signs went up 2 days before a Gem event was going to be held there... I know they are watching and the idea of 2 groups of 20 were due there, that has forced their hand...

Only Yesterday there were 4 groups caught Illegal fossicking in the District... One brazen lot were digging within 40m of a NO FOSSICKING sign...  >:( 

Oh I would love to put the pics up that I have. Faces, rego numbers and ..

 But I think they would be pulled down real quick unfortunately... ::)

New Signs have been posted at Torrington and are about to be erected in Stannifer and Tingha....
Parts of Torrington are now closed... Mainly Pacific Copper's area... That means no more Bismuth and Wolfram Hill... All private property now... To access the dam areas you must cross this Private Property and that is Trespassing and you will be Prosecuted for doing so...

Next area now closed is Stannifer and Tingha Plateau Conservation Area... Jellybean Crystals came from this area...

All these Closures have been bought about by those who like to Rape and take everything as well as using Power tools to Fossick...

I would put pics up but its too hard for a Gemster... But believe me, this IS very True... >:(


Yes its still closed....


  :o Oh No Jerry, what are you going to do this Year... :D

I should mention that it is probably about 400-450mm in diameter, so quite a good size as I understand (although I did just read that they can get to 1000mm in diameter).

 I have seen them well over 2m... Some properties around Mt Tamborine has some very large ones..
 We went to a Party up there years ago, and they had a larger one cut in half for an outdoor table...
