Hi, can anybody tell me how to get a list of NSW declared fossicking districts in a simple manner. I have tried to do the overlay map thing at the gov site to no avail. I was thinking of taking a trip to Nundle but saw a lot of it was under EL. That would be be over ridden if it did happen to be a fossicking district. I have also searched the web but apart from a few listed can't find an exhaustive list for NSW. So if someone has a list or can point me to one I would appreciate it. By the way the Bulldog field in Ewingar state forest and Girard forest above Drake are still closed areas , although Boonoo State forest closer to Tenterfield is open and could be worth a look. Regards all

I think from memory that if an area is a common and been a fossicking area the the area now being declared a fossicking district, the whole shire for eg then this over rides the EL and you don't need permission from the EL holder.

If where you want to go is on private land in a fossicking district you still need the private property owners permission but not the EL holder.

below is the list of fossicking districts.

"Within a fossicking district, a person can go onto an exploration licence for the purpose of fossicking without the licence holder's consent, provided they have the permission of the landholder. A fossicking district may cover a small area, or an entire Local Government Area (LGA)."

The list has been updated to include a lot more areas. Hopefully Dubbo LGA will be added soon. Edit: in fact Dubbo LGA while not on the list is included on the Minview map below sourced 18/10/20.
A lot of the former fossicking areas are now fairly redundant as they've been taken up in the larger LGA areas.

Just an update to the above.
Dubbo LGA was officially made Fossicking District No 70 in February 2020.
