Fighting for fairer access to land in NSW

"Represent the interests of prospectors and fossickers"

NAPFA membership

NAPFA encourages all prospectors and fossickers in NSW and the ACT to become members of the Association. 

Others who support the cause are also invited to join.

Remember that in 1854 at Eureka the diggers swore an oath to stand by each other.  

They lost the battle but eventually won the war.    

Currently the NSW Division of Resources and Geoscience (DRG) are determined to greatly restrict the Prospectors and Fossickers of NSW. NAPFA expects things to get worse before they get better.

DRG has taken steps to ban the high banker and in their haste, will ban any other power-operated equipment that assists in fossicking. NAPFA continue working in detail on this.
