just heard the bad news apparently the common commitee have now voted to charge 15 dollars per day per detector to fossick on the common. i think it will affect the shop folks in town badly as alot of their income come from people enjoying this great social hobby. i hope the people in tibooburra have a good think about this and ammend this crazy plan.my plans for this season have now changed . the dollars i usualy spend there will go in another towns pocket jardie

seems a common theme happening in the goldfields. there are also some PLH are asking for camping fees and for a signed agreement all of which isnt legal. we all want to do the right thing but within our rights.
i agree with you Jardie, the towns are the ones that will suffer loosing thousands of tourist dollars for a few quid in camping fees and I too will avoid those areas as there are plenty of ground to find gold on.
cheers
