I'm confused, Reedy creek is on the exempted list but every man and his dog goes there.

I forgot to post an update, oh well, better late than never. There is a map of the area that you are allowed to prospect in.
http://parkweb.vic.gov.au/__data/assets … -Guide.pdf

Other maps can be found here,

Just thought I'd post it for any newcomers like myself.

So can I use the water in an exempted river/creek to process, with a river sluice, classified dirt dug out of a dry creek bed adjoining , but not in, the exempted river

I think I might have been avoiding a pannable creek very close to me for a little over a year now... on the exempt list it mentions "Yarrowee River Tributary of Barwon River" there happens to be a Yarrowee creek near me (Sebastopol in Ballarat)... and it never occurred to me that there could be a different one... given the Barwon River is quite a bit further down South (or at least Google Maps seems to have it listed down there)... is my local Yarrowee Creek a different creek and I can therefore pan it or does the Barwon River come all the way up here and muck up my hopes of a short trip to pan? (I should probably know more about the path of the Barwon River but my memory is a bit rusty).

the creek and the river may be one and the same .....

Yes - curious though that the Yarrowee mentioned on the exempt list says it is a tributary of the Barwon River, a river which is on the opposite side (south side) of the Dividing Range to the Yarrowee River/creek asociated with the Ballarat Goldfield.

Very good question, I rang numerous departments and no one could/would give me an answer.
I also asked if I could pump from an exempted creek to work an old alluvial area 100mts away from the creek, where there are numerous shallow diggings, still they couldn't answer.
So I said well if no one can tell me I can't then surely you couldn't enforce it then? The reply was non commital as they didn't want to put their head on the chopping block.

but there's no gold in the exempt creeks and rivers, they are exempt so no-one wastes
their time and energy digging there for nothing and disturbing things..
