How do i get onto private property

Post  wishful_thinking on Tue Jan 13, 2015 4:44 pm

Gday all,
I'm fairly new to detecting and have just put my first detector on order.
I'm in central nsw so have quite a few well known goldfields quite close (ophir, hill end) my only concern is that these crown land areas would have most certainly attracted every man and his dog with a detector and finding gold as a beginner will be almost impossible.

I've driven past a lot of these areas and seen the bordering private properties, I understand that these land owners have probably had offers before but what's the norm in making an approach to detect on someone's land? I'm thinking there is definately a deal for a percentage of gold found but just wondering what has worked for people before?

Also if there's anyone out this way that wouldn't mind a tag along next time they go out, I'd love a few pointers with my new Garrett when I pick it up!

Find out the property owners name and try to get a phone number and give them a call and ask. be polite. Yes they have had a bazillion people ask the same questions. Or you could knock on the door. Don't go in looking like the Wolf Creek killer or some other dead beat.
Most will say no but hell ya might be lucky . Try to hook up with somebody who knows some of the property owners and they might arrange an intro.
There is still gold in the crown land and yeah it won't be easy finding it whether the place has been done to death or not.
Go slow and be patient.
