A Question on permits on the NZPAM site, I am looking at doing
a bit of fossicking when I head to the South Island in Feb 2018 I will mainly
be sticking to the public fossicking locations but would also like to
do a bit of panning elseware on streams and rivers bordered by public / Doc
land, Obviously I don’t want to upset anyone with an existing claim, this
hasn’t really been an issue in the North Island as its only the big companies
that have claims up here and I don’t think they care about someone panning for a few specs
I see on the NZPAM site there are quite a few different permits, if an area is covered by
a Prospecting permit Application (Shaded area) does that mean you don’t go there? also there
are areas covered by Exploration Permit Applications.
Where should one steer clear of so as not to upset anyone or get shot??
