Victorian Goldfields under threat....again.

Post by warrenaw » Thu Aug 16, 2018 9:13 pm

Certain groups in and out of govt are trying to enact legislation blocking prospecting in the biggest and best Victorian goldfields, just an overnight trip on the big red boat away from Tassie! Not fair.

If they succeed, idiot parties in pressure groups are liable to try the same thing here.

Check the link, guys. It's getting serious.

Looks like the greens are spreading their wings again, we've got to take a strong stand as soon as this crap makes it's way south! Do they really think digging a small hole and filling it back in is going to have a big effect on the environment? Hundreds of native animals dig holes every night but one person within a shovel? ?????
Prospecting must be like fishing, the big one always gets away!

trouble is the few that are leaving holes everywhere are making it bad for the ones that do the right thing.
on my last 2 trips out detecting ive had to fill numerous holes in the ground left by people with a dont care attitude.
making it look bad for the person who does the right thing
