Results from the consultation summary to proposed changes by VEAC for central west have been released today. (well at least I got an email regarding them)

http://www.veac.vic.gov.au/documents/CW … 202019.pdf

Quick summary on prospecting was listed with these points:

Prospecting
•prospecting is a popular activity across the investigation area, not just in the known goldfields
•it is part of our cultural heritage
•most people are fossicking with metal detectors and hand tools, not doing more damaging types of prospecting
•prospecting does not damage natural or cultural values –it is a very low impact activity and prospectors clean up rubbish including lead shot
•there should not be any more restrictions on prospecting, as available areas for prospecting are being reduced across the state
•prospecting should be restricted because some activities disturb the environment
•many prospectors travel into local towns and add to the local economies
•some people travel from interstate and internationally to prospect in Victoria

Good work from everyone who took the time to voice their concerns earlier this year.

The final report is stated to be released in June.

It just means the received feedback with opposing points of view which you would expect, on the whole though it seems most prospecting related feedback was positive.
