Hi jayvee
I have stayed at the Mt Perry Caravan Park; at the Local Pub the Miners say the gold is crushed out of quartz by Company mining just out of town.
I have seen a place near Mt Perry a few kms out of town that looked like a good area to detect. Not sure of access at the moment with all the rain we have had lately.

I know of a good spot on the Kolan River, Just nearby, will have to check my notes and put more up for you.
I heard the new land owner is not too friendly to Gold Detector’s.

[qThanks neale,ok on the info,yes i believe there are some good arears around the area,if you have or can get access to G&G vol3 page 202 heading "Reid's creek goldfield" ,there are quite a few interesting arears mentioned,and are in very hilly/mountainest country.i do not think that there would be any ill tempered landowners out there,but research for ownership would be in order of course.thanks again, john.

Hi Jayvee,

it has been a while but some info might help you on this area. I was last there in the early 90's and at the time Mt Perry was being advertised in Bundaberg tourist brocures as a historic town favoured by fossickers. Went to the the council chambers-Info centre and they directed us to the caravan park where an old timer lived called Mr (Col) Hart. He showed us a place out off the Monto Rd (Branch Vale Rd I think) where he had some leases. The leases were on private property owned by a Mr Proctor on Branch Ck. He was only too happy to let us fossick. The gold in the creek was fine but there was a lot of it, say 50 colours/dish with small red-pink garnets. We prospected Branch Ck for 1km and found gold all the way. I went back a few years and once again asked the owner and he was fine for us to fossick. This time we used a sluice and got about 2-3 grams for the days work. I have never detected the area but Mr Hart showed me a jar containing about 2 oz of nuggets up to 2 grams. He said it came from some creviced bars up Branch Ck but was reluctant to show me the spot. All I can say is if you are able to get permission it's worth a try. Branch Ck meanders a fair bit and there is old wash on the banks worth a go where you might find some 1-2 gram pieces. Good Luck.

Gidday Steve & Lea,
That sounds like a mighty find idea. The town could do with some extra dollars, there usually is a good meal at the local!
Would the general feeling be to camp out or room it in town? My wife and I would prefer to caravan out if possible.
Cheers Dave Cartwright cheers

Mt Perry is not far from me I know a few spots I would like to check out not far out of the Town.
It is goverment land now.
The lease on the land ended and the Govenment took the land over.
There is a great looking creek there I would love to walk up with my GPX4500 I recently bought.
As the crow flyes it is not 10 km from a gold area that has been close of by land holders.
My thoughts are if it is that close it is worth a look.
It would be good to have a look as a group so let us know and I will be in it.

mate, it might pay to have a good look at this. Occassionally I have been able to get my hands on some government lease records. Many new and old leases have been resurveyed and have updated information with GPS location. They are spot on as I have tried them out here near our area. If you have G&G you will see it is on twelve mile creek, this indicated map location can vary by as much as a few km compared to government gps figures, thats what I found with some mines around here, I'll see what ever else I can find out tonight, cheers SS

Hi John,
yes it is frustrating with our government, I have been trying to get info and clarification on many occasions and it is like talking to a brick wall...I think they just don't want to have anything to do with us..
I'm sure if there were any keen prospectors working as heads in the leading goverment we would have different rules ! quite some time ago they announced that we will know the outcome of possible extensions to the Clermont GPAs by the end of last year...I am still waiting on anyone from the department to even send me a reply to several requests....makes you wonder whether anyone is actually working there...
but here is a simple solution: about a year ago I was informed by the relevant department that fossicking in state forests was not allowed unless you have permission...so check with forestry in the area you are interested in and you might just get a permit, otherwise , since nearly all of Qlds state forest areas are leased out( mainly to run cattle in) then all you need to do is get permission from the leaseholder....most of the ones I approached just laughed at me and told me to have fun and not worry about all those sitting in their offices and ..""..

anyhow , guys, here is a bit more about Swindons :
The Swindon Lease is about 14 miles south-south-east of Mount Perry. The mineralization, which
was discovered in 1947, occurs within a sequence of tuffaceous rocks which dips at 30° to the
north; the volcanics are probably part of the Aranbanga Beds. Gold values were recorded from
zones containing siliceous limonite which is dispersed throughout tuff. The area of economic
interest is approximately 380 feet by 300 feet. In 1952 the more promising leases were taken up
by theMount Rawdon Gold Mining Company These include the Falcon, Dawn, Day Dawn,
Rainbow, and Sunrise. Other leases were the Blind Man, Rio, Tail End, Summit, and Delia. Total
production from the area was 745 tons of ore, which yielded 192oz gold. The area was abandoned
in 1953.
------------------------------------------------

This is an odd looking placement of gold deposit to my normal way of thinking. Studying the landscape on google around Swindons it looks very much like the main gold deposit occurred from the range, part of which is to the left of the big hole….as far as I can trace things at the moment we might have to look for the actual swindons discovery high up in the hills at about –25.263090 , 151.730566 give or take a few hundred meters, I will try and find out exact gps from old mining records if I can get access …..
To me it looks like the cream of the gold was in the valley, around the current mine site. Of course there is a chance of some nice nuggets down the slope towards the mine….the other interesting thing is down the west side of the range, away from swindons..it might hold rich prospects if the ground dips the right way, very rugged by the looks of things and access is very limited…..
these boots are made for walking......

well John, frustration is not the word for it....so you've been to Clermont, we were there last year but came home empty handed after concentrating too much on hammered ares, but I did see a few nice ones come out of them....also there were some in the caravan park who had permission on private property and they managed to grab a few ounces, half their luck....mate, I have been and still am trying to find out what is happening about more GPAs...there was supposed to be a deciccion made by the end of last year , but lets not hold our breath, no reply from the authority , typical...I have also put in an email to the ABC who ran an article on it in their morning show, back in Feb 2010 ! maybe I will get a reply, I have asked them to maybe follow it up as well.....there is a tonne of ground out there all over Qld, I think overall we prospectors do the right thing and leave the ground as we find it so there is no reason at all to ban us! Especially when most times the ground will be opened up for some large scale business or bulldozed to make way for progress ! Here is the link to the radio show if anyone is interested :

so why dont you just talk to the landowners? 50% of them will let you on their land and 99% dont give a hoot about the actual mining leases.

Post  Tecc Fri Jun 03, 2011 2:13 pm

I Did explore for a day ( without a detector) in Mt Bania area, State Forest, now national park.

There were cows in there, so I don't know how that works.. but anyway.

I am going to explore some more, and take a detector.
It is state forest, I don't feel obliged to ask permission to walk there, or use a metal detector.
The issue is probably the digging of holes, though there may not be any legal difference between scraping a 10 cm hole, and an open cut mine. I can see the obvious difference.
State forest is owned by Australia, which includes you, and if you do happen to see someone out there in the middle of nowhere, they are not going to care if you have a metal detector..
That's my opinion.

So, will I bother to ask permission to metal detect if there is no special exemption or definition of this activity, and it falls under the heading 'Mining and exploration' that was invented before metal detectors were around.
No.
It is bush walking.

Info on the mount perry area west of bundy. Empty Swindon Lease

Post  pewterpete Mon Jun 14, 2021 7:00 pm

Swindon Lease

The Swindon Lease is about 22.5km south-south-east of Mount Perry. The mineralization, which was discovered in 1947, occurs within a sequence of tuffaceous rocks which dips at 30° to the north; the volcanics are probably part of the Aranbanga Beds. Gold values were recorded from zones containing siliceous limonite which is dispersed throughout tuff. The area of economic interest is approximately 115m by 30m. In 1952 the more promising leases were taken up by the Mount Rawdon Gold Mining Company These include the Falcon, Dawn, Day Dawn, Rainbow, and Sunrise. Other leases were the Blind Man, Rio, Tail End, Summit, and Delia. Total production from the area was 745 tons of ore, which yielded 192oz gold. The area was abandoned in 1953. It was also reported that little gold has been won from a deposit at Swindon (22.5km east of Mount Perry), from which coarse alluvial gold was shed, but there is little prospect of other than small-scale production.
