Thats a great idea phil. If advertised properly and was held at the right time of the year, we might get a really good turn out. Theres a lot of people fossicking and prospecting these days. The wife and i just sent off our application papers to join PMAT just the other day which we've been meaning to do for way too long! Not sure how many members PMAT actually has but it can never have to many. In saying that, Anyone that is Not a member of PMAT should become a member instead of just sitting on the fence. Not a great deal has changed in tha past 200 years in regards to our mining rights and no doubt there will be further restrictions imposed on us as time goes by. The more numbers a group has, the more likely the group will be heard.

And in saying that, we have 512 members on this forum, and a lot just seem to be sitting on the fence (trolling maybe) so dont be shy. Get involved.

Hi all. Got the bug and have no idea where to start. I have been researching a bit but usually come away confused. All I would like to do is enjoy the outdoors and have a bit of a dig without doing anything wrong or illegal. Would some of the more experienced members send me in the right direction. All the info from tas-prospecting is awesome and it has certainly helped considering a few weeks ago I knew nothing!!
Anyway...
Thanks PaulG.

Hello PaulG
Jump on the MRT website and look up "fossicking areas" , there are about 10 or so spots in the state you can go and look for gems and minerals without a prospecting license and not be on private land. Also you could join the PMAT and go on one of their field trips and hook up with like minded people to show you the ropes. If you have a specific gem or mineral in mind that you want to find just post on here and ask for advice, somebody will probably help you. Good luck and have fun.
