Yes I agree it's good news, NAPFA (NSW & ACT Prospectors and Fossickers Association) has been working on this hard for a good while now and a few councils are starting to see the benefits.  Very Happy

Well not yet, but I think NAPFA is trying to get old gold field areas re-opened that are tied up in these type of areas, not sure if it will happen but hey, ya gotta try.

My home town area.  I always bought a permit to detect in the State Forests there as that is where most of the old gold areas are.  Still no detecting permitted in National Parks, as indicate by Dave ⬆️ above.

On my reading of this, it looks like a state forest permit is still required?

G'day Annie

With the designated fossicking districts that are getting approved in various areas on NSW, it basically means that you don't need to get permission from a Mining company that hold an Exploration lease over areas in that council area. But if it is private freehold land you still need the owners permission. And in NSW even pastoral leases you still need there permission.

All this is a small step forward in that on unoccupied crown land that has an Exploration lease over it you won't need the EL holders permission. Very Happy

It's easy to see why we go to WA to do most of our detecting. Very Happy

In SA you just need a prospectors right to access land on an EL that is held by a an EL over pastoral lease.

Bit of a joke these companies holding EL's in areas that they will never be able to mine,i spent yrs when i started walking the hills out braidwood way,alot of it was under EL's by some company,why i'll never know,they have next to no chance of getting a serious operation under way in these areas,look at majors creek,havent heard anything for years but i bet there still battling the greenies etc and not running or packed up and left,hope im wrong,never seen a drill rig or even any geo's in yrs down that country,seen some nice nuggets though......

Yes mate that is the case, again it was a NAPFA initiative to push for one permit state wide, online, instead of the old system of a different permit for each forest region.
