Hi fellow Prospectors,

Some of you may be aware that there is a bill on the W.A. Government table which if passed in its present form,
will effect every Miner, Prospector, Detectorist, & even Pastoralists here in Western Australia.
APLA has asked its members & also all miners & prospectors to read the act & individually express their comments to the W.A. DMIRS
& the W.A. Government.

You can find a copy of the Proposed Bill here:

Read it weep it is scary!!!

Cheers

Ted

Who Has Been Involved in Developing the Act?

Although the Amalgamated Prospectors and Leaseholders Association has been in discussions in recent times with
the WA Government about this Act, generally (it seems) their key input has been rejected relating to the
small operator and metal detectorist.
APLA have been unable to share these discussions due to confidentiality.
APLA Members are requested to read the act & provide input to the Government about this draconian Legislation.

Hi Ted
Thanks for the info
I see a lot of leases are being dropped over there, ours may be going as well.
