I've started this post to inform members and non member detectorists that the NQMA (North Queensland Miners Association) is lobbying the Queensland Mines department to change access laws to EPM's (exploration tenements)
The proposed change would ban detecting and prospecting on exploration tenements without the consent of the tenement holder.
This would effectively ban metal detecting in any gold field as they are mostly covered by exploration tenements. Whats worse is that more than half of the members of the NQMA are detectorists or hobby prospectors. And they are using the money from their yearly fee's to lobby for this change.
This change is the brain child of James Said the current president of the organization.
I urge members and non members to contact the NQMA and voice your concern about the changes they are lobbying for.
To contact the NQMA please email email@example.com, please reference the best contact below in your email.
President – James Said
Vice President – Graham Byrne
Secretary – Lyn Byrne
Treasurer – Michele Mobbs
Native Title Officer – Paul Crossland
Publicity Officer – James Said
