Hi, after years of talk, my 83yr old dad and I are getting into prospecting - well, I’ll be doing the work and he’ll be doing a lot of commenting and possibly fishing if the location is right.
So, we’re in southland and am going to get a detector (probably a goldmonster) and a small sluice. Am I allowed to sluice at the various beaches? DO I have to go to designated areas in Otago to use a sluice or detector? Is there a local community/clud I can join?
BTW, my main priority is getting dad out and about, and if any gold happens to be found, then that’s a plus
