I think it's a pity that they have changed the laws like that :( I have often considered going and buying a Mine Lab gold detector and just going walking through the hills .. well scratch that idea.. Gee I reckon it might be about time to go live in a shack in the Kimberllys on a nice river somewhere lol

Yeah but havent used it since my knee op stopped me from kneeling dow,
Its a GP extreme with about 6 coils that go with it.
Cost me around $10 k all up but if youve got a lazy $2k ono, you can have it.
Only need an oz of the yella stuff to pay for itself.

What a crokka!

If I was a prospector, that stupid bit of legislation wouldn't have any impact on what I would do. Business as usual.

What are they going to do, re-vamp the Gold Squad at a time when they cant fill the regular policing holes? Have Constable Plod sneaking along all the little creeks etc.
I don't think so.
Of course, the time will tell when you try to offload the stuff. but a resourceful fossicker will have this already sorted, as a mate of mine already has.

He made $6500 on a weekend not so very long ago. Cash. No Tax.

Yeah, it is possible to identify where gold was found, its impossible to determine when it was found.
They bought a law in NSW that says you can only take 1 oz a day. Just to stop people taking big lumps.
So if you find a 10 oz nugget, you are supposed to leave it there. Yeah right.

I had nuggets for years waiting for the price to rise. I sold it for $360/oz. If i held it til now, it would have been worth $1500/oz :banghead:
