Closure of Prase Mine Nundle
« on: August 13, 2022, 05:39:16 PM »
Was in Nundle last week with the intention of fossicking for Prase at the old Prase mine at Hanging Rock.  On going to the mine I found that a locked steel gate had been erected closing the access road to the mine.  The mine is on Crown Land, but there are no notices regarding the closure and locals from hanging rock told me that they knew nothing about the mine road being closed.   The manager of the Fossickers Caravan Park told me that he had only just found out the road had been closed and had inquired with Tamworth Shire Council, but had not received a reply from them.  Does anybody know about the road closure on this site.

Hi Tinker,
               I spotted a report saturday in the Tamworth Northern Daily Leader on the barrier. Its a road closure not a fossicking closure. The continual wet weather over winter has damaged roads & tracks throughout the area. Fossicking is allowed but you have to walk in. I have tried to upload the report in the media gallery for you.
