A few weeks ago a mate and I were detecting in the Durakai state forest, specifically in the Carbean Rd/ Rabbit Fence Rd area.
It was obvious that there had been plenty of people there as there was a large quantity of unfilled holes. It looked pretty ordinary, to be honest.
While we were there, two Natural Resources? inspectors came around checking permits.
One of them made the comment that if people didn't start filling in their diggings and taking more care about it , then the Department may look at making changes to permissions.
I am just posting this as a reminder that the bureaucracy is probably willing to limit activities rather than free them up so please look after what we have.

On ya Jaffa, unfortunately what you state is going to come to fruition in many areas because of the stupid, irresponsible few, shame really as kids will never have that experience of finding colour.

I always come home with a load of other people's rubbish from my local Goldfields, most of it is obviously household crap and not dumped by prospectors but there's a few cans and bottles that are probably from our local skanky prospectors. Don't sh*t in your own nest people's!

With detectors being purchased online and through large retailers that are not prospecting outlets , I think it's a matter of education. You need to tell and show people how to prospect and detect properly so they don't leave a mess and understand the rules basically.

When I purchased a detector from minelab (now shut) , it came with a 3 hour coarse out in the field. You were told to fill in your holes and take your rubbish home with you (and that of others). Don't think that happens with the big retailers. Hence the issue of mess and holes everywhere.

I think it is pure laziness, it states in the rules of the permit ,leave no rubbish ,fill holes ,stay on formed roads ,no :poop:ing in the creeks ,but you go to some places and the local tip looks and smells better ,those people have no social conscious at all ,and they probably still have mum pick up for them at home

Good to raise the point once again Jaffa. Unfortunately it is likely that none of the people out there not filling in their holes, are members of any of the related forums and some quite likely won't have appropriate permits or approvals for what they are doing.

the state would be out of debt LW if they went to the gemfields in central queensland and fine them for unfilled holes

i go out of my way to hide that i even have had a scratch there, especially if i am still on a run of good sapphire wash and it is time to go home lol

it does not take much to pull the billy boulders in the hole behind you as you follow the wash ,all it is is a couple of drags of the mattock or pick on the pile at the hole, not to hard to do neutral

Sand surfer, some people are just inconsiderate , arrogant and just just simply don’t give a continental about anything or anyone. I have seen this at Oberon and Inverell.

I was camping on Nth Straddie and these bogans appeared on the 2nd night and you could smell the cannibis and hear the boom boom music for the 2 nights they were there and they were evicted. The women used to carry their babies into the water and urinate instead of going the extra 50 mts to the toilet block. Don't know what the blokes did-probably went out there as well.

Someone from the city will spend say $40-50 on a long sleeve shirt with a label on it to FIT IN.
Been there done that!.
Someone from the city is clean when it comes to disposal of rubbish coz there are bins everywhere.
Maybe the problem is coz there are no bins in the bush, obviously local councils won't pay pay for bins and to be emptied in state forests and help keep it clean?

When I'm out west I like country music, fits the scence.
I use to compose digital music with a programme called ableton live. I still love the complexity's of today's dance music, it's just another challenge like geology.
Frequencys of sound in music makes a target boring.

i don't think it would matter with most of them if there were bins out bush, they would still have to waste the energy to move the 3 meters place the rubbish in it

i don't see what the problem is it is a dammed site lighter to carry it out than carry it in
