Playing around with the ArcGIS online services I’d put together a map for myself to combine topo, walking access and gold mining permits on one map for easy research when checking out new areas.
Shared here if you’d like to use it:
Please note that it’s only showing active gold mining permits, not any other types of permits like prospecting, exploration or public fossicking areas.
The WAMS (Walking Access Management) layer shows you were paper road, marginal strip, etc. are so you know where you can go without issue that might encroach on private property.
If you want to make use of this map on your mobile, but you’ll still need an internet connection rather than having access offline, then the following app can be used:
I figured a few of you might find it useful for exploring. Enjoy
