There is a 320 acre Gold Mining Lease near Clermont Central Qld offering fossickers, detectorists, campers or outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to get access.
You can:
- camp anywhere on the lease but must be set up for self sufficient camping
- prospect & keep all gold found
Cost $100 per week for access & camping permit.
Contact Wolf 0422 742 679 or
Email meginwolf@yahoo.com

As advertised in GGT magazine. No affiliation & haven't been there to recommend but thought it may be of interest to those going that way.


Everything we use comes from mining or farming.

Is it worth detecting there though? For those who don't know the area is it in an area worth detecting. Obviously there cannot be any guarantees but for people who have to travel a long distance to get there are there real possibilties?

$100 bucks a week for access a camping sounds good either way.
Definitely worth a week if you are there.

Good post mbasko

Its a gold mining lease.
Clermont area is known for detectable gold.
If you're heading that way it would be worth a shot IMO. Cheaper than staying in town.
Ring the owner for more info on the area & what type of gold is on his lease before you go. Do some research on the general area & make up your own mind before setting off! thumbsup
Not sure - stay at home.

Spend a couple of days there in July, lot of ground to swing over with plenty of gullys. Manager of the property recons he has found plenty but we had no luck so far, but to be fair you can only cover so much in 2 days and much of that is spent scouting the ground. It's a place we will certainly be back to and it's cheap enough to camp there if you like the peace of the bush.

I tried to ring Wolf today and got a message back, he no longer has the lease and doesn’t believe it’s open to fossicking!

I could be reading the maps wrong, but I think this lease is pretty much the middle of Birimgan east GPA, so there is access just can't stay there.
I may be reading the maps wrong?
