HAVE YOUR SAY -- MT STURT NATIONAL PARK REVIEW -- Tibooburra

Post  NAPFA on Wed Apr 19, 2017 3:00 pm

All fossickers interested in the Tibooburra Area please note that the Plan of Management for the Sturt National Park is being reviewed.

You can have your say by 17 JULY.

While NAPFA will put in a submission, please consider having your own say to potentially get fossicking back onto areas where fossicking was allowed before it became national park.

As a rule of thumb, it looks to me like the area in the park south of the Gas Line could be carved out as a section of the park where fossicking could be permitted, with consent and with some park controls. That would take in areas close to Tibooburra but allow sufficient roaming space within the general area. This is a very small percentage – probably less than 5% of the overall park which is about One Million Ha. I can stand corrected if someone wants to measure it up. It takes in the Whitta Brinnah range and known gold locations near Tibooburra.

The document says the last area of park was reserved after 2003 when mineral and mining interests expired on Whitta Brinnah, one of the old stations there.

GET BUSY FOLKS – THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO BE HEARD.

G'day Stephen and NAPFA

Not much in the way of comments on this topic so far, plenty of comment about the fees the common trust want to charge though.

I have not researched the Sturt National Park area for possible gold producing and detecting areas, but my guess is there is plenty of potential areas if it was opened up for a look, this can only be a good thing for the town and associated businesses in the town and other areas.

NAPFA has had some success in lobbying for other areas around NSW to become designated fossicking districts, I can only hope there is some degree of success in this proposal also.

cheers dave

I'm heading to WA to chase a bit of gold over there. So I have had to lodge the NAPFA submission early.

http://www.napfa.net/upload/NAPFA%20submission%20-%20%20Sturt%20National%20Park%20Plan%20of%20Management.pdf

I really encourage people who know the area, or who are interested in going there, whether you are NAPFA members or not, to have your say. It is the only opportunity on a planned five-year cycle where you have a chance for input. Individual views and stories matter.

Thanks to those who have already made the effort.
