Hi, something I haven't found an answer to yet and I hope it's not obvious and I've missed it - We can prospect on pending leases, but when does a lease go live and how long do I have? How do I know if the week I'm out swinging the detector the lease goes live?

From a layman regarding WA great question PT thumbsup I'm sure it's been answered more than once. Have you tried the search icon top left, you'll be surprised how many questions have been raised and answered to reflect the state legislation according to the date of the post.

Hi Tim,

As far as I know you just have to check the status each day to make sure. If you check last thing on a Friday you should be right till at least Monday morning.

Cheers

I believe the onus is on yourself to make sure you can. It's your responsibility to know if you can or can't be somewhere & there are means in this day to do so. If you can't check then you probably shouldn't be there.

Before you go out of range check the date that it became a pending lease. It usually takes 6 months or more for it to go live. So if it has only been pending for a month or so you should be OK.

Tim, drop into the Mines Dept in Perth before you leave & ask for an indication of 'live date'. They are always helpful.

All depends also on the person who put in the lease application. I know of one in the north of the state that the applicant will not agree with the local indigenous group so it will probably stay pending for a lot longer. Someone else has now placed a lease application over part of it.

Download an app called "Happy Prospector" it will help

Yes but you still need service to update data. Good for seeing where you are with relation to the tenements.

If you're on a pending lease when it goes live, the lease holder is sure to be there soon & let you know to pack up & move out. ops

By the sounds of it we can bank on this example if the only ground you cover is WA and fair call to thumbsup

Tim you don’t need to be in phone range with happy prospector - it’s a gps based app that will work .

Yes but you still need service to update the data. I use this app regularly to ensure that I am in the correct lease.
