The prospecting organiser Bill Denheld will provide all permits necessary to enter mining leases, to areas that have the best chance to find real gold, and his choice is determined by weather, gold history, geology of the area ventured into.

Not included -

Expenses relating to accommodation near Airport prior to pick up or after the 21 day prospecting period is completed.

Self Drive Campers for your trip.
If so desired, you can hire a self contained four wheel drive vehicle 'camper' for your trip.
See Links below - adds about $200 per day to the cost including fuel.

Campervan hire from Adelaide check 'Camperman Australia'
offer a wide range of comfortable vehicles from less than $100 per day.

Detector hire
. Should you wish to hire the latest Mine Lab GPX5000 this can be arranged from Finders Keepers in Kalgoorlie West Australia. Bookings for the hire are essential. adds about $35 per day.
Why the Mine Lab GPX5000 ? At the moment in W.A, the only machine to use is the GPX series.
The ground where gold will usually be found is extremely magnetic, and to date only the GPX can be relied upon to penetrate those conditions in deep ground. However, we are always open to other brands, as Bill tells me he has personally found more gold with an early Garrett detector, but he has not used the latest other brands. So please do not underestimate other high end gold detectors.

You will need to have,
Comprehensive personal travel and health insurance.
On commencement , you will have settled all accounts and indemnified the trip organiser against any losses that may be due to altered circumstances, itineraries, eg, timetables, dates, destinations, campsites, roads or tracks that may without any notice alter due to weather, road closures or any conditions that will affect progress of any plans.

Other issues,

While every effort will be made to ensure smooth operations, but while setbacks like tyre punctures and mechanical  break downs cannot be un foreseen, we cannot be held responsible for any delays outside our control.

No refunds will be considered on or after trip commencement or departure. If a member wishes to leave the trip for any reason, he / she must incur the full cost of transport and any associated cost to the destination of their choice.

Due to the nature of prospecting in the outback, we cannot guarantee exact return dates or times and cannot be held responsible for failure to make connecting services. We always build in a few days buffer for this reason. Any return flight bookings should be left open, so last minute bookings can be made accordingly.
