NSW & ACT Prospectors and Fossickers Association Inc - Fighting to get fairer access for prospectors and fossickers


The NSW & ACT Prospectors and Fossickers Association Inc. fights for fairer access to land in NSW to prospect and fossick for minerals (especially gold) and gemstones; as well as for coins and relics.

Formed in December 2012, we aim to represent the needs and views of our community to government and others who manage access to land. 

If you prospect or fossick with a metal detector or other tools, or you are a coin or relic hunter,we need you to take action and join the cause now!

Show the same spirit that emerged at Eureka in 1854 when diggers united under a flag of the Southern Cross and pledged to fight for a fair deal!

“We swear by the Southern Cross to stand truly by each other and fight to defend our rights and liberties.”
