Here is a good one that has not had a going over...unless they were using a geiger counter.

The prohibited military area of Woomera, South Australia, is to be opened up for mining. 127,000 square KMs.

Full report here: http://www.defence.gov.au/woomeraReview/

It would be great if fossickers had a few special rights there.

This apprentice would love to tag a long if a master is organising a trip. Not sure when it all opens up though. I presume it must be all crown land.

What to the SA forum members think?

The links as supplied above have now been changed, but if you try to use it, it WILL redirect (the second link supplied)

If you're headed up there ... just drop me a line ... I'll be in on that trip (although I'm a recent starter & certainly no 'master'!)

There's going to be whips?? Twisted Evil Count me in!, Laughing I had an uncle out there in the 60s and 70s when I was just a brat and I always wanted to go take a look at the Woomera Rocket Range, even if theres not much gold I suspect there must be some trash out there worth recovering.

Wayne.

I actually put in a submission on behalf of the detectorists of Australia after I had read the above mentioned article on the Govt website. Yes! I did receive a reply to my submission ... but of course, it was the usual 'thank you and we'll get back to you' kind of thing.

At least they know we're watching!
