Chance to comment on Mugii Murum-ban State Conservation Area Plan of Management

Post  NAPFA on Mon Sep 21, 2015 7:20 pm

I noticed that this State Conservation Area has some historical diamond and gold mining.  

NAPFA would be interested in the assessment of forum members as to this areas suitability as a potential destination for fossicking and why you think it should be allowed or nor allowed. You should note that because it is a State Conservation Area you are not presently allowed to go there.  However it is quite possible that you are aware of fossicking activity at that location before it was banned by its elevation to the SCA status in National Parks in 2011.

Any information about how it has been fossicked, when and by whom, and specifically what areas in the SCA would be very useful to help establish why fossicking should be allowed in a Plan of Management

If you can provide detailed and constructive comments that would be appreciated.  NAPFA will assess forum comments and consider them in a NAPFA submission to this Draft Plan of Management.

Feel free to provide detailed comments to me at And also to post to the forum as you see fit.

All members of the public are free to lodge their own submissions to such reviews – so if you want to do that – go right ahead.  If you are in a club or association, raise it with them as well and possibly put in a group one.

Submissions close 18 December 2015.

Remember – the reason areas have been locked off over the years is that the authorities have not properly heard why we want them to stay open!

Thanks in advance.
