I've been googling my heart out trying to gather info without much luck.

Anyone have an idea about the length of red tape I'm going to encounter?

If your in Victoria, the red tape process will go on for around 13-15 years?
It will cost you around $280,000 to $360,000 and you have no guarantee of a lease being granted?

The idea behind this is to ensure you give up or go broke before being granted a lease?

You would need to be absolutely sure of a Rich beyond belief gold deposit exists?

The days of an individual miner with a claim are long since gone!

I can only inform you of trying to get a lease for opal in Q'land. I paid $1,709 at Winton to start the application on 6 Oct. 2011. I have had to pay another $386 dollars for advertising . I have done every thing as quick as possible but the lease has not been granted to me yet. Once it is granted... I will have to pay the Greenies, the " locals " and the shire council every year. The Greenies want $533 per year , I don't know about the others. Also I have to put up a $2,000 bond for any damage that I do.

The good news is, that they are putting in a new law and you can change your lease to a claim or two, depending on the size. Then you do not have to pay these annual rip offs.

You have to have your lease granted before you can change it to claims.

Absolute dribble, Victoria is one of the best states for a small scale miner to get a lease ( besides WA ). Don't know where you got them figures from, its generally 90% less than that.
Checkout the dpi website if you need to know the application process, its no where near as painful as its made out to be. I would guess slag heap has never had a lease and is just quoting a fairy tale he heard around the campfire.

Aurumpro... I'm glad someone else mentioned that..!! I was thinking along the same lines.. what is the difference to "ploughing" your paddocks ready for planting... is there a definition of ploughing? Can you plough with a excavator?...hmmmmm lol!
