Hey everyone, i'm a reporter at the ABC in Kalgoorlie and i'm really interested in the idea of prospectors pegging leases at midnight, with the potential sometimes to beat bigger mining companies. i'm trying to speak to people who have experience in midnight pegging or know someone who is as part of my research. is anyone able to point me in the right direction?

If you have any info on this, please email me at joyner.tom@abc.net.au smile

Track down Dane Sorensen from Dane Sorensen Exploration Services in Perth. He should still be around and ask him about midnight pegging of a couple of old GMLs that expired. They were at the time in the middle of the Paddington Gold Mine open cut. Caused some consternation not the least being they skipped out of a fancy dress party in Kal to do it dressed in costume.

Not sure if it still goes on as most of it was on GMLs

ps I was out the party.

It still goes on....the one thing the entire mining and prospecting game revolves around is control of ground. It depends on the stage of the 'mining cycle'
though, for example, their is little to no ground available to peg at the moment as things are at the top of the cycle.....this means that demand for ground is at
an all time high and this means that any means possible to secure ground is being used. Yes, there is plenty of midnight peging going on, but this is not
really a way to 'beat' companies to the ground as they will simply employ pegging contractors to 'do the deed' for them. The more interesting methods of ground aquisition occur in the wardens court where plaint actions are being taken against tenement holders.

Friday avo in the Kal mines office seeing which leases fall over that weekend and ripe for a midnight peg. The tension at 11.58pm in the middle of nowhere is awesome. Done a few.

How large an area are these pegged claims? Is there any land you can freely detect anymore
or do you have to go 100kms out of K town?
